Here’s to 8 Years!

Posted by: Maggie

Well baby, today is our eighth wedding anniversary and we’re still driving each other crazy leaving the trash can full to overflowing (me) and leaving dirty clothes on the bathroom floor (you). Luckily, we each do enough for each other to outweigh the little annoyances. Like how you’re the best Daddy ever with all the diaper changes for George and the hours of playing with Eleanor. And I…well, I’m sure I do something useful around here. Despite our good qualities, I’m pretty sure there is no other person who would put up with either of us, so I think we’re in it for the long haul. We really don’t have any other options! So, see you on the couch in 60 years!

Love you more than ice cream (and that’s saying something)!

7th Anniversary at the Farmer’s Daughter – Part Three

Posted by: Maggie

If you missed them, check out Part One and Part Two of our anniversary at the Farmer’s Daughter.

After working up an appetite, you know, with the tv watching, we went downstairs to Tart, the hotel restaurant. Tart serves up American comfort food all fancied up. Everything was so freaking delicious.

We started with cocktails.

Josh got a Hendrick’s Strawberry Drank, which is gin, lemonade, lime juice, and strawberry soda. Super tasty, but a little too soda and juice heavy. So he followed it up with a regular old G&T.  I had a Dirty Strawberry, which was Vodka with fresh strawberries, basil, and balsamic simple syrup. I thought ahead and asked our server to go heavy on the Vodka. It was awesome! And pretty!

Since all the entrees were meat and we’re vegetarians. We ordered several sides.

The Heirloom Tomato Crostini. So, so tasty!

The Truffle Mac & Cheese. Simply amazing! I couldn’t get enough!

Sweet potato fries. Tasty, but not as good as the rest. Also the others stuffed us pretty full, so we barely had any fries.

We followed dinner up with a dessert of berries and cream and one of those fresh baked cookies topped with ice cream. Holy crap those were good. Sorry no photos. I was pretty well drunk and stuffed full by then to remember to take photos.

After dessert we walked back to the hotel, passing through Tart’s lovely patio area. I decided that’s where we would have breakfast in the morning.

We went back to our room to digest the massive amounts of food we ate and sober up a little. And then, you know, probably more tv.

And, sure enough in the morning we walked down to the patio for breakfast.

Guess what? The breakfast was awesome too!

Josh got the veggie hash and I had the French toast banana foster style.

Also, the coffee mugs were super cute. You better believe I bought one to bring home.

And that was our anniversary. Super fun! Amazing to have a child free afternoon, evening, night, and morning! Super big thanks to Uncle Elliott who stayed at our place with Eleanor. We even got good reports that she was well behaved and didn’t even mind that Mama and Daddy were gone. I think she wouldn’t have cared if we were gone a week. She loves her Uncles!

We checked in Saturday afternoon and went straight to our room to…watch tv.

After watching tv, we were pretty hungry so we headed down to the hotel’s restaurant, Tart, for an early dinner. Tart photos up tomorrow!
