Five Years

WAY back on August 11th, Kevin and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary.  It's pretty sad that I'm just now posting about this, but we did have a lot going on back then.  If you have a great memory, you'll remember that August 11th was the day of Kate's first birthday party.  If you'd asked us five years ago, I'm sure neither of us would have guessed that we'd be having a first birthday party for our daughter on our 5 year anniversary!  It was perfect though.

After Kate's party, Ken and Angela came back over to our house to keep Kate while Kevin and I went out to eat.  We hadn't really made any plans before hand because we didn't know how tired we'd be from the party, or really what time we would be done with everything.  So we got in the car and started driving before we even discussed where we wanted to go eat.  This is where we ended up...

I'm sure lots of y'all are laughing that we went to Salsarita's on our anniversary!  There is a really good reason though.  Actually two reasons.  The first is that we really WERE tired from Kate's birthday party, and we weren't really in the mood to go anywhere upscale, or somewhere that would take forever.  The main reason though is that this was the same restaurant that we'd eaten at for the very first time just one year ago.

On August 11, 2011 Kevin and I were in Raleigh, NC meeting our daughter.  We had been at the hospital earlier in the day and had already checked into our hotel.  We had a short amount of time before we had to be back at the hospital for Kate's baby dedication ceremony.  We'd never really been in Raleigh before so we had no clue where to go.  As we were driving around looking for food, we saw the sign for Salsarita's.  We knew it was similar to Moe's so we stopped in.  So, on our 4 year anniversary, and on the day we met our daughter, we had Salsarita's for dinner.  It was a good meal, for more reasons than just the food.

It only seemed fitting to celebrate our 5 year anniversary, on the day we celebrated our daughter's 1st birthday, that we have Salsarita's again for dinner.  And it was good on that day too!


  1. What a cute story! My husband and I can be low key like this too and sometimes it is just more fun and relaxing. I can't wait to read more about your family and the adoption process. We hope to adopt one day (an older child though) so your story really interests me.
    If you'd like, come check out my blog. My son is actually 1 month older then your daughter.

  2. Great reasons to have eaten there. Who knows, maybe it will be an anniversary tradition! I think low key dinners are the best! And, I once threw a one year old birthday party (he is now 12) and I still remember how exhausted I was at the end of the day!

  4. Ooops, not sure what happened!


    I love this post and the way that you all celebrated! What a great way to remember two special days! My husband and I also celebrated 5 years in July!

    I wanted to thank you for your sweet comments on our adoption journey! It does sound like we have a lot in common, including Clemson ;) Let's just say I'm a little upset over last nights game!

    Anyway, thanks for stopping by the blog! And, Happy Belated Anniversary!



I'd love to hear from you- new friends or old!
