First, a week or so before our anniversary proper, we spent a weekend up in Salt Lake. Harry and the Potters were touring along with Potter Puppet Pals, and we thought we must surely attend this epic event, so we decided to make a holiday of it and stay at our beloved Little America. We stayed in one of the Garden Rooms, which is new for us (we usually opt for the tower), and we had a grand time. We went to the concert, which was awesome and hilarious and fun and VERY hot and sweaty.
|OMGoodness, it's the PPP theater!|
|They asked people near the front to sit so everyone could see.|
|It's really them! The actual puppets! Here you see the trio meet.|
|JK was even there!!! She almost killed Harry.|
|Alas!!! A cornucopia of love!!!!!|
|Taking a break in between acts.|
|Drulie wuz heer.|
|We liked it so much we shelled out the cash for these neato shirts. ANGST.|
|I carried this muffin around all afternoon since I was too full to finish it at breakfast. It was still good.|
|Like we do.|
THEN it was our actual anniversary! It was on a weekday this year, which is partly why we decided to take our weekend excursion at an earlier date. But after work we went to the temple to do some sealings, and then went to a fancy dinner at Chef's Table (thanks so much for the great deal, LivingSocial! That's the only time we eat there, and we're glad those deals come around now and then). I gave her three dozen flowers (one dozen for every year... I don't think I'll be able to keep up that pattern in years to come) and a cake cookbook (which benefits me as well) and a Battlestar hoodie (which she hinted at very heavily a few weeks before), and she gave me a beautiful Brave art book and The Hunger Games (pending its release a couple days later)!!! It was an anniversary extravaganza! Then since it was a late dinner, which is what posh people do, we came home and probably watched some TV and had a nice evening.
|She liked them. :D|
|Avocado brownies... You just don't know...|
|But I do!|
|It hardly does justice to the original, but I sure tried! She is such a pleasure to draw.|
