The anniversary dinner

On Sunday, the Pants Monkey and I spent a wonderful day together celebrating our anniversary.  We hit the cheap movie theatre in the afternoon and watched The Five Year Engagement.  Predictable, but cute movie.  Then we went and had dinner at the same restaurant we celebrated Valentine's Day at this year.  Our one rule was we could not order any of the same items we had on Valentine's Day.  It wasn't hard to do as there were several other things on the menu to choose from!

For our dinner I chose to wear my fun new red dress that I thrifted last week.  Erin actually found this one for me, so a big thank you to her.  I've been loving reds lately and I loved that this one has polka dots too!  It was hot outside, but I added the little jacket for being inside the restaurant.  I'm glad that I did because we got seated under an air vent so it was a little chilly!

I had the Pants Monkey take my pictures and then asked if I could take one of him, because I think he looked pretty darn cute himself!

He doesn't have tan or lighter colored socks that aren't white, so he went with the green ones.  He was afraid it looked really tacky, but I didn't think it was too bad and besides that, no one was really going to see his feet when we were sitting at the table anyway!

We had a wonderful dinner, splitting salad, pasta and a meat course.  We brought home cannoli for dessert and toasted with some of our favorite scotch.  All in all a very nice day!

  8. happy anniversary! i like your hair styled like that! it looks so summery! and the five year engagement, how cool would it be to have that wedding at the end? my sisters told me that i should have done that to chris.

  9. Awww perfect date night look! Sounds like an amazing time out.

    Also lol, I totally have the same problem with the hubs. He will decide to wear all black and white socks or khaki and a brown shirt with black shoes. I can't get him to see why it looks a bit odd. I think hunter green socks are probably the best option

  10. Sounds like a fun date for you two :) And what a pretty red dress you look sizzlin!
