A Magical Year!
Well, today marks our 1 year anniversary! Wow.. time just flies.. it feels like yesterday that we were sending out wedding invitations... Sheila and I had some plans for our 1 year, but with all the traveling we have done in the last month with family and weddings, we decided to take it easy and stay local. We decided to go do one of the things we enjoy the most, shopping at IKEA. So we strolled around the mega-store looking at all the fun stuff. Made a few purchases, a pink hippo for little sophie and some fabric to re-cover our ottoman. Then we went out for dinner, we went to La Fontana in downtown Nyack. This is the other place we had considered doing our reception at because of their tasty food and beautiful hudson river view. Sheila with a delicious and I mean DEL-I-CIOUS!!!!! pasta dish and myself with a double stack of pork chops, which i was unable to finish... it was a fun, romantic candle lit dinner. Sheila handed me a gift bag, with a white mug that had "#1 hubby" written in sharpie marker all over it... filled with 4 Reese's BigCup. What I didn't notice and Sheila had to point out to me a few minutes later where the little white pieces of paper taped to the bottom of each peanut butter cup. So I opened the first one and find a pair of airplane seat numbers, then a flight number, time and date, and on the last one I discovered we are going to Tampa!! Later that evening we had plans to go to the movies as we were on a classic "dinner and a movie" date.. however it was getting late so we decided to go from the 42 foot screen at the theatres to the 42 inch tv in our living room. And we watched "Confessions of a Shopaholic" and called it a night.
