Our 5th Anniversary - at The Melting Pot

Today is our 5th anniversary.  It's funny because neither of us can remember when our anniversary is each year.  We have this plate that everybody signed at our wedding and it hangs on our wall...but since we moved we haven't put stuff up on the walls yet.  So, I had to text my mother in law actually to find out when my anniversary is!!  I think what messes me up is that my dad and stepmom's anniversary is the day after ours, and I can never remember which one is ours and which one is theirs.

We don't ever do anything fancy or buy presents for our anniversary.  I mean, our first anniversary we went camping with friends, and usually every year our vacation plans fall somewhere near our anniversary.  Like this year...we are leaving on our vacation tomorrow.  That's why we chose to celebrate our anniversary 2 weeks ago.

We went to The Melting Pot.  Neither of us had been to this fancy fondue restaurant, but I realized there is one very close to our house and there was a Groupon (actually Deal Chicken) for $25 that we could use as a $50 gift certificate.  Even with that it was still expensive.  But it was fun.

We had to make sure we had dessert!!  Oye!
It's fun to have a reason to go out and buy an expensive dinner...but honestly, our anniversary isn't that big of a deal.  In fact, last night Brian said to me, "tomorrow's our anniversary, right?"  (He only knows this because I've been telling him for the last 3 weeks)

I said, "yes."

He goes, "I just want you to know that I didn't get you anything."

I said, "that's okay I didn't get you anything either."

He just laughed and goes, "I love you, Christie."

We're made for each other.


  1. We have our anniversary date engraved on the inside of our rings so that we remember the date =)

    1. I'm glad to know we're not the only ones who forget!! That's a good idea!
