My Anniversary - Delicious Eats

It is hard to believe that we have now celebrated our one year anniversary. It is hard to believe that we have been married for more than one year now. It is hard to believe that one year ago right now, I was waking up in a hotel room with my husband getting ready to head over to my mom's house for a brunch prepared by her friends and some gift opening. It has been the fastest year of my life it feels like. So now we are ready and moving forward to the next stage whatever it is when you are no longer newlyweds. I guess we are not anymore, are we?

We started celebrating our anniversary on Sunday evening. My friend Leah started her own cupcake company (check out Ava Belle Cupcakes on facebook!) and so I decided to use her new company to make us a top tier for our anniversary. We ate our real top tier when we came home from our honeymoon last year because we didn't want to worry about storing a cake for a year in our freezer (which has limited space) and have it get freezer burned or something. So my original plan was just to call the bakery we got our wedding cake from and order a half dozen cupcakes or something, but with a friend starting her own business, you gotta support that!

Oh yes, J and I had a red velvet wedding cake with a remade red velvet top tier. And yes, cake + champagne (a bottle we received as a wedding gift and saved all year) was our dinner on Sunday night.
Monday was a little bit of the usual. Up early to run 4 miles at maintenance pace (I ended up slower than that because my legs would have none of it!), work all day, etc etc. But then we had a dinner reservation at Melting Pot (which is one of my favorite restaurants). I have only been there a handful of times, the first being my birthday in 2010. I was turning 27! (whoa)

I think we pretty much look the same then (other than my MUCH lighter hair - the dark hair is the natural color). I look a little thin in the shot of us together as well. Hmm... I can't decide if that is good or bad?
But here we are last night.
We enjoyed dinner, and I took a break from tracking my food for once, since I tend to do that obsessively, and just enjoyed ourselves. We had a delicious dinner of cheese, salad, the entree course (meat + veggies, J ate all the shrimp though) and of course, chocolate at the end. It was worth every delicious calorie.

Now I can't wait for tomorrow's maintenance run to test out my anniversary gift!
