Luke and I celebrated our two-year wedding anniversary yesterday. We originally planned to celebrate on Sunday, but instead we ended up going to Cedar Point that day again since Luke has family visiting from out of state. A group of ten of us went, ant it ended up being sooo much fun, but sooo exhausting!
Anyway, back to our anniversary. Luke used his comp. time to take the day off on Monday. So we got to relax and sleep in. We got up late and headed out to see Toy Story 3 in 3D. Oh my goodness, it was such a great movie! We laughed so hard, and thought it was fun to see so many old toys we remember from childhood. And to be honest, I almost cried at the end! It was just great. I thought it was funny that when the first Toy Story came out, I think Luke and I were about the same age as Andy. And now we are 25/26 and Andy is 18. I told Luke I guess he aged much slower than we did. Ha!
After the movie, we headed to Chili's for lunch. I had a delicious Santa Fe chicken wrap, and we got free chips and salsa. I had not been to Chili's in a long time (years), and it seems like the menu has changed a lot. But it was still very good! It was our one and only meal of the day. I guess it really filled us up!
After Chili's was my favorite part of the day: a trip to Pittsburgh to visit IKEA! I love IKEA. I hadn't been there in a couple of years, so I felt like I was long overdue for a trip. Luke had never been there before, so I had fun bringing him for the first time :-) I don't think he enjoyed it quite as much as I did, but I think he still liked it! My favorite part was looking at the cute baby/kids stuff. I cannot wait until I have a nursery to decorate someday! Or rather, a reason to decorate a nursery someday. We also really enjoyed looking through the kitchens...I think that was Luke's favorite part. Which is funny, because he really doesn't spend very much time in that room. We found a few things we might keep in mind for later when we have a little more money saved up ;-)
In the end, we only ended up buying an egg slicer (I've wanted one for so long because of the insane amounts of egg salad I make. Egg salad sandwiches are my favorite thing to eat for lunch!) And these delicious Swedish cookies which cost way too much money. My mom always buys them every time we go, so I thought I'd keep the tradition going. Have you had them? I'm not even really sure what they are, but I LOOOVE them. They're very crispy and crunchy and chocolatey. Delicious!We would have probably spent a lot more time at IKEA, but Luke had to get back for softball games. So we hurried back, and Luke's team annihilated the other team in 5 innings both games. So it was a good evening!
Our anniversary was fun! I can't believe we've been married for two years already! But I can honestly say that it just keeps getting better and better, every single day. I feel so blessed that God brought Luke into my life six years ago, and even more blessed that I became his wife two year ago.
