Weekend Recap

We had a fantastic anniversary weekend!

Friday night we had dinner at M at Miranova. It is one of the best restaurants in town and it happens to be in the same building where we had our wedding reception

sweater dress - Old Navy (similar) | boots - Target | blanket scarf - ebay (similar)

You can hardly see the bump in the photo above, but trust me... It's there!!
The blanket scarf is just covering it up!

They knew it was our anniversary, so they gave us an intimate table near the back of the restaurant. The waiter made me a delicious "mocktail" that kind of tasted like a grape spritzer. 

I had the fillet "steak in a bowl" with blue cheese potatoes. Bill ordered the NY strip steak and we shared the lobster mashed potatoes. Everything was delicious!

They even gave us a complimentary anniversary dessert! 
We chose the caramel apple pie... It was so good!

We decided to write each other love letters for our gifts to each other (1st year gift is paper). The note Bill wrote me is something I will cherish forever. I am thinking about adopting this as a tradition every year!

Saturday was spent shopping with my mom at Destination Maternity for some nursing items. I got a nursing bra, tank and night gown. She also got me a very comfy, fuzzy robe for an early birthday present. It is soooo soft and will be perfect for winter baby snuggles :)

Saturday night we went to my friend's house to watch the OSU game. They had an awesome spread of food complete with BBQ pork, mac & cheese, lots of dips and homemade buckeyes! I was in pregger heaven! We left at half time and of course, as soon as we leave the Bucks start to play better and ended up winning. It was looking a little rough in the beginning!

Sunday, we had a lovely birthday brunch over at my parents house. My birthday is on Tuesday (11-11!) and they wanted to celebrate our anniversary as well. 

Brunch was delicious and topped off with a birthday sprinkles pancake! 
My parents gave us a few gifts that were left on our wedding registry. I had no idea they were still active! But, it was a nice surprise!

The rest of Sunday was spent on the couch napping, eating and watching Netflix. 
I had all the intentions to clean our house, but my energy levels were depleted!

I'm excited for the week ahead! My birthday is tomorrow and Bill has something planned up his sleeve? He's being sneaky... 

How was your weekend?
