My Husband Rocks - Great Anniversary Date

My Husband Rocks Friday - Great Anniversary Date

My sweet Husband of 9 years (see our Anniversary page from yesterday...Anniversary), completely rocks because he took me on a wonderful date last night to celebrate our special day. Here we are on the outside deck of the Restaurant - our nice waiter Patrick came outside and took a couple of photos for us. :) I made this dress just for our special occassion. :)

He took me to The Chart House, a very nice restaurant that is on the river with a pretty view of the water.

This place has sweet memories for us, since the first time we went there was 11 years ago (from last May), and after dinner we went to a park by the water and he got on his knee and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him - now I call that romantic, hee hee hee.

Mmmm, yummy sesame cracker in the bread basket!

We had a lovely (and way too expensive) dinner of melt in your mouth filet mignon, garlic mashed potatoes and ceaser salad. In addition, the restaurant printed special menus that said "The Chart House Melbourne wishes Mike and Kathy a very happy Anniversary". How sweetis that? What a special keepsake for us!

After dinner we were given a free (I'm sure it got paid for in there somewhere) dessert since it was our Anniversary, the Mud Pie - A HUGE slice of coffe ice cream in a chocolate cookie crust, drizzled in fudgy chocolate and sprinkled with nuts, mmmmmmmm.


Now, I have to mention that this place has this most awesome dessert called the Chocolate Lava cake, you have to order it ahead because it takes 30 minutes to prepare. We KNEW we would be too full for dessert, so we didn't plan to have one, but somehow we managed to finish off that mud pie - lol...maybe that's why my tummy hurts today, LOL.

After dinner we went walking on the beach. I love to walk on the beach, I love the sound of the ocean. It was extra windy last night due to Hannah making her way north, and the waves were really big (for us anyway, not like Hawaii 5-O, LOL).

Have a blessed day!
