The Anniversary

We have thought for the last year about what we would do for our 5 year anniversary.  We thought about a big trip, a little trip, doing nothing... As this year has gone on we have changed our minds about a million times.  So as October came to an end and we had nothing planned I scrambled to plan something.  An email from our favorite Bed and Breakfast- Johnson Mill- came just in time.
50% off special!
I was all over it.  I picked a different room than we usually stay in just for a little change.
The HONEYMOON suite.
Ryan and I both ended up working on our Anniversary but we took the next day off.
I woke up the morning of our big 5 year mark and came downstairs to...

Love Him

Ryan came and picked me up after I got off and we were headed to Midway.
We were both starving so we grabbed our romantic dinner of taco time to go.
Checked into our room.
Started a fire.
Watched a movie.
and had a great night.

The next morning we
Slept in then ate our breakfast in bed.

We laid in bed until the last possible second.
Checked out.
Stopped to visit my sister. I forgot all my fall decor for her at home so we improvised.

Headed to Ryan's heaven on earth (Cabelas)
Stopped by my OB's office to get blood drawn.
Ran into Zurchers party store to get a new helium tank.
Headed home to smoke some ribs.
Ate the yummiest romantic dinner.
Then Ryan went to bed while I stayed up... 
Because... I went to the midnight showing of Twilight with my MIL and Sista.
BTW-- I loved the movie. Ah eye candy.

I can officially say Ryan and I had a very special day and fell just a little more in love :)
Life is definitely not perfect.
We have our issues I could write a novel about but what I love most about us... 
Is that we are a definite team. No matter what happens we end the day working together to get through it all.  I am so lucky to have a partner. and know we are in it forever.
