Anniversary dinner & a special request

Yesterday my husband and I celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary!  We feel incredibly blessed that this was our 3rd year in a row that we were TOGETHER!  I don't know many military spouses that can say they have spent 75% of their wedding anniversaries together and we are incredibly grateful to say we have.

He surprised me by taking off from work early and bringing me flowers after a few not so subtle hints

I cooked one of the most delicious meals either of us has ever eaten last night.

Most of it was pretty simple and I would recommend ALL of these recipes!

this is actually the lobster I ordered last year for our anniversary in Hawaii and I was lucky enough to find the recipe online!

these were PERFECT!  every single bite had the perfect amount of each flavor.  these will become a regular menu item in out house and that is speaking volumes because we rarely eat potatoes

these were good but next time I'll leave out the flour and probably add more Parmesan and a little garlic powder

{both the potatoes and asparagus I found on pinterest}


we followed that all up {hours later} with homemade cheescake and fresh strawberry topping!

The cheesecake is now sitting in my husbands office.  I did not need that sitting in my house.  I would have eaten it for breakfast lunch and dinner today!

I also have a HUGE favor to ask of each of you!

Our dear friend Haley has been nominated for the 2012 Military Spouse of the Year and I would appreciate if you would vote for her HERE!  She is a West Point graduate, veteran, mother, Gold Star spouse and is working to make employment easier for military spouses.  I can't think of anyone who deserves this honor more than she does!

Ha, I normally have to drop flower hints, too. I've decided to roll the dice this year and not say anything and see what happens. :)

Happy Anniversary! So far we've been lucky enough to spend all our anniversaries together. It is a blessing.

And I voted! I hope your friend wins, she has a great vision!
