Has it really already been over a week since we celebrated our 18th anniversary?? Time is going so fast. It seems I can't keep up with anything, my house, this blog, my kids' social calendars and activities. Most days I feel like my head might spin right off my head.
Last week, Rick and I were able to take an overnight trip to Boulder for our anniversary(thank you so much, Laura and Ellen for keeping our kids). I had never been to Boulder. We usually do Denver when we have one night. Boulder seemed like a good option since it is not much farther than Denver.
We had a yummy dinner at Cantino Laredo
I have been hearing lots about the restaurant, Snooze. So, we went there for breakfast. It was a long wait, the service wasn't stellar, but I liked the unique menu and atmosphere. There were several things on the menu that I wanted to try. I would definitely go back to try some of those things.
Just having uninterrupted time alone with this man is the best anniversary gift I could ask for
I chose the pancake sampler.
(l to r) Coffee and donuts pancake, pineapple upside down pancake, banana peanut butter granola pancake.
Rick had French Toast OMG!
Pink Grapefruit juice always reminds me of my Grandmommy.
Speaking of kitchens, we got this toaster as a wedding gift.
It has served us well for 18 years.
The little lever has been broken for years, but it still toasted our bread.
I think that everyone should get an anniversary shower somewhere between 15-20 years of marriage. Everything is wearing out and there are so many new gadgets and features on appliances. Also, as a family grows, those 6-muffin tins just don't cut it. I need to upgrade lots of my cookware and bakeware. Oh, well, a little at a time.
I am just thankful I still get to have this man in my life.
Our marriage has stood the test of time even better than that toaster.
Here's to another 18 years and a new toaster!!
