three years a wife

On March 30th, Mack and I celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary. Since it was a week day, we didn't do anything too special but we still had a blast. We didn't really feel like going out or cooking (even though we've had tons of fun with that in the past - Valentine's Day was amazing!), so we got a big order of sushi from our favorite local Asian restaurant. We watched stupid TV and after seeing Jess on New Girl with a pan of brownies, I was "inspired". I whipped up a little batch of brownies which we proceeded to devour while yes, still watching stupid tv. It was perfect and fun and I wouldn't have it any other way. We did want to do something a little more to celebrate though, so we decided to take the following Saturday to go to a fancy-ish, water front restaurant in Old Town Alexandria.

Our 5th Valentine's Day

Mack and I celebrated our 5th Valentine's Day together this year and I have to say - it was the best one yet!! In past years we've gone on dates, Mack has skipped class to bring me flowers & a poem, we've eaten lots of sushi, and Mack even cooked for me one year!

We stayed in bed for a looooonggg time and finally decided that we were going to stay in for dinner and cook ourselves something "fancy".
