A very good day

Yesterday was our 4th wedding anniversary. We had a wonderful day. Had lunch at the Waterfront. I had the Halibut Royale. The halibut is marinated in chardonnay then topped with sour cream, mayonnaise, chopped green onions and seasoned bread crumb. So yummy.

We were going to go to the Des Moines Art Center after that, but we were in a food stupor, so we decided to go to a movie instead. We saw the Blind Side and it was really good. Then we got some coffee and wandered around the mall a while. Every anniversary we stop by the Cosmo Lounge downtown Des Moines for a martini. I had a Bloodytini (basically a bloody Mary martini) made with pepper vodka and it was, as always, delicious. Thanks, Sherry!

Even though we still weren't hungry, we went out to dinner anyway to Sam & Gabe's. We had scallops and duck and were basically gluttons. By the time we got home, we were both way too stuffed to eat the wonderful homemade raspberry cheesecake with chocolate crust. (I had some at lunch today though and it was amazing! Thanks, babe!)

I gave my amazing honey two Alice in Wonderland prints from Unique Art Pendants, which I bought on Etsy and framed myself.

I received the cheesecake (so yummy), a beautiful bouquet of stargazer lilies and this book of Manolo Blahnik shoe drawings. It is a collection of his sketches from the 1970s to the present. They are all so amazing and I can't wait to study them. They are inspiring.

Thank you, babe, for another amazing anniversary. I love you.
