Now to the gifts and the food, the good stuff!
Dusty was pretty eager to finally find out what I had gotten him :)
I gave him his card first, and then put his gift down on the table. I had been trying to find him some rings for a while, and found two that I loved!
He really liked them, and thank goodness, they fit!! One is silver and one is black, and he has enjoyed wearing them :) every guy needs some casual accessories, right?
Now....to back up a little bit. Earlier that day, at Old Spaghetti Factory, we had a conversation about weird dreams we'd been having. At one point, I turned to Dusty and said, "I even had a dream that you got me a wedding band for our anniversary!" and laughed. You see, we had talked about getting a wedding band for quite some time. The original plan was to get one by the time our one year anniversary rolled around. But in light of our finances, and other trips and expenses we had made, we decided to wait on it. I love my engagement ring, and have never really needed anything else. It was an understood decision.
And by that, I mean, I understood that decision.
Yeah, I was a pretty ridiculous mess.
I was also really happy I had gotten my nails done in gold glitter for New Year's :)
|Caitlin: A ridiculously good grapefruit salmon!|
|Dusty: An incredible pasta dish, flavored with chorizo!|
After we had finished the main courses, they brought us out a complimentary dessert! It was SO unique -- probably one of the most innovative and flavorful desserts I've ever had. We're still not sure which feeling wins out -- liking the taste, or just being impressed with the concept!
This is me, being articulate: It was a chocolatey delight, thick and gooey and smooth. There were four raspberries on the side, and it was perfect for just four big bites. Swirled around in the most interesting way was some kind of creamy substance, and some kind of chili powder, and peppercorn. WEIRD! Every bite we went, "Oh, oka---OH, oh I...oh, wow!"
Haha each second you took to chew, a different flavor made its way in there. It was interesting.
And, since the dessert was free, we thought, why not? Let's order another one. :)
So we opted for the pear and apple cobbler, topped with ginger ice cream. Yuuuummmmm.
With coffee in my hands, and yummy food in our bellies, we were very happy campers :)
Cheers to us :)
