2/26 Getaway

4 Mar

Usually when Valentine’s Day rolls around, I cringe, pick out a card for Nick and hope our day goes well (e.g., no fighting). We didn’t want to feel that way anymore. We decided instead of celebrating V-day, we would celebrate the anniversary of when we started dating, February 26. Now that was something I could get excited about.

This year was our 4 yr dating anniversary. Nick found us a nice hotel downtown for a fantastic price off of Priceline. We left right after work and just enjoyed the evening. We walked all through the skyways til we found a place we wanted to eat: Hard Rock Cafe. I do love that place! Then we went back to the hotel and watched Air Force One. I had never seen it before. Nick got me a cappuccino and I didn’t like it. sad. Fortunately, it wasn’t room service. Nick had gone down to the lobby and they gave it to him for free!

We went to Hell’s Kitchen for breakfast. So good. For real. It was tasty and inexpensive! In the afternoon we went to the Riverview Cinema to see Tangled! Which was also so good. Overall, our 24-hour date was relaxing and refreshing. I’m so glad we did it. I foresee this happening more often in the future!

    What a wonderful date! You two are so cute. I have always wanted to try Hell’s Kitchen. What did you have there?

      I got a waffle, sausage and coffee! It was perfect and lovely.

    Both of these pictures are so beautiful. But there’s something about the 2nd one that’s particularly lovely. Older? Wiser? I don’t know, but it’s really great.

    You guys ARE really cute! Brian and I celebrate our engagement anniversary and our wedding anniversary every year with a trip away (well, we didn’t actually do a “getaway” for our engagement anniversary last year, but our intention is usually to do that! This year we are just going to Stillwater for 24 hours to celebrate.) It’s such a good tradition, and since our engagement and wedding anniversaries are exactly 6 months apart, it means we split the year up in halvsies with our two trips.
