Happy Anniversary! (To Husband and me!)

This week Husband and I celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary. Does that still count as being a newlywed? At what point do you move from newlywed to old married couple? Anyway, Husband took me to a very nice Irish restaurant in Austin called The Emerald House. It was so lovely I decided to take pictures and how you what an awesome experience it was.

Husband took this picture of me on our patio shortly before we left.

This is the restaurant, isn't it so cute! It's like a cute little Irish cottage.

Foyer of the restaurant.

First course was potato soup. It was hands down the most amazing soup I have ever (ever) had.

Second course was a salad, which I forgot to take a picture of.

Third course was tenderloin with vegetables and a potato. It was probably the most tender piece of steak I've ever had!

And dessert was an Irish whiskey cake (which I also forgot to take a picture of).

We had so much food left over (I'm not a big eater anyway, and this was a LOT of food!) so they wrapped it up to go for us to look like swans kissing. How cute!

The next two pictures are pictures of Husband and I at the restaurant and were taken by the waitress who had trouble with our camera. I wish they had come out a little better. :/

It was a great way to spend the evening, and yes, it took all evening. We got there at 6:40 and didn't leave until 9:30. It gave us time to catch up and talk about life and our goals for the future. On the way home we even saw a shooting star, the perfect way to end our day.

Now you may be asking what Husband got me for our anniversary. Well... I got Beauty and the Beast on DVD (my all time favorite Disney movie), and tickets to a Yule Ball. Yes, you read right, a YULE BALL. As in, Harry Potter Yule Ball. Eeeek! I am beyond excited. The Yule Ball will include a meal, waltzing lessons, dancing, and tickets to a midnight showing of the movie. How awesome of a gift is that? You better believe I'll be taking tons of pictures and have a big blog about it the next day.

Thank you for reading this blog and sharing our anniversary date with us!
