Joel had the great idea to take a little "tour" of downtown Laramie. We went to Sweet Melissa's for our appetizer; if you've never had the artichoke dip appetizer from Sweet Melissa's, go there right now and get it. You won't regret it.
We headed to Jeffrey's for our main dish. I had a delish chicken and spinach salad. They brought it to me in this crazy big bowl! I had already eaten quite a bit when Joel took this picture. (Please focus on the bowl, not the crazy look on my face)
Joel enjoyed his sesame chicken with peanuts and broccoli over rice. Neither one of us could finish our dinner, so we'll have a nice lunch today!
Then it was onward to LoveJoy's for dessert. My deep fried New York cheesecake with ice cream was to die for, and Joel's root beer float was also very yummy.
We had a great anniversary dinner, and we couldn't have been more stuffed by the end of the evening!
Over dinner we talked about the fact that the last eight years have really flown by. In eight more years I'm sure we'll be amazed at how quickly time passes. I'm happy to be sharing my time with my best friend!
Now, to segue into some older news. I really haven't been motivated to blog lately, so I've missed a few things.
Will had his first school concert a few weeks ago. He was adorable all dressed up like a puppy. They sang "Oh where, oh where has my little dog gone" and "How much is that doggy in the window". He sang the songs and did the actions, all while squinting into the crowd trying to find where we were sitting. It was adorable!
One big piece of news that I haven't blogged about is that Joel's Mom, Brenda, got married on the 14th of March. We were able to get up to Lovell after Joel worked the night before. She married Roland Simmons from Cowley. Here is a picture of the whole bunch (minus Dane, of course).
We are very happy for Brenda and Roland!
