Happy Happy Anniversary to US!

Yesterday Ben and I celebrated our 2nd anniversary! I can truly say I have the best husband ever! He always puts me first and thinks of anything and everything to make me happy! Since we've planned a late fall trip to Asheville we decided to keep it low-key. For weeks we made plans to go to PF Change on Monday night one day early, where we had our very first date over 4 years ago.

Us before dinner at PF Changs!

When I came back Mon. afternoon from a girl's weekend at the beach, I could tell Ben had something up his sleeve. He could barely hold it in any longer and told me my surprise...For weeks he's been planning on cooking dinner at home on our actual anniversary. He took off the night from work and planned and cooked the entire dinner.

Ben made the most awesome Angus Barn worthy dinner: NY Strips with blue cheese, crab meat and homemade hollandaise sauce on top, twice-baked potatoes and asparagus. We shared a bottle of one of our favorites wines, Hayman & Hill Cabernet Sauvignon. I had picked up cheesecake for dessert on my way home from work. We both had so much fun remembering the details of our wedding and reception will eating by candlelight on our china.

The 2nd anniversary gift is cotton. I could not come up with a memorable cotton gift for Ben. This weekend I found a t-shirt dyed with beer and said "Will Sell WIFE for Beer." As a last minute gift I got him a pair of Lucky jeans he's been eyeing. Ben got me the most beautiful flowers and a new robe from Victoria's Secret.

We can't wait to continue our anniversary celebration in Asheville over Thanksgiving weekend!
