Anniversary Weekend!

So Stephen and I had planned that we would have a stay-cation of sorts for our fifth year anniversary. My mom was brave enough to watch the kiddos for three days two nights while we were gone. It was Miles first time to be away from me overnight so it was different. Stephen and I left the day of our anniversary on the eleventh to check in to our hotel at Hawthorn. Though before we got there we had to stop by 7-11 to pick up our free slurrpies. It's kind of a tradition to do that on our anniversary every year. Our room was really nice at the hotel and we settled in. We decided to watch a couple of food network television then head out to swim in the pool for an hour. We came back and were ready to go out to eat for dinner which we decided when we left that we would eat at Oklahoma Joes...but...we ended up eating at Longhorn Steakhouse instead. It was so very good. We then headed to Barns Noble and I was able to get two books while I was there and Stephen even picked up a book for himself. We then stopped at Yankee Candles (because Stephen and I love candles. Let's just say our first date ever was picking out a scent of candle that we consider our relationship candle) We spent an hour there smelling different candles and talking to the ladies that worked there. We bought some things there and then we picked up snacks for our hotel room. That night...you would have thought we would have slept but most of the night we relaxed and watched more food network shows. Saturday, we got up early and headed to breakfast. We then relaxed until the stores opened up where we hung out for the rest of the day. It just happened that they were having a huge sidewalk sale. I was able to get a couple of shirts, a vera wang wallet for myself and my mom, and some other things. Stephen was able to get five video games at a store there. We even had panera's for lunch and cookies later on for dessert. That night after a swim we headed out to have Macroni Grill for supper. We just happened to have the manager for our waiter and treated Stephen and I to free dessert for our anniversary. We then headed to some more stores and then picked up two slices of cheesecake from the cheesecake factory. That night we were able to get some sleep which was nice. It was a really nice weekend to have just the two of us and be able to spend it with my husband. On our tenth we are planning to make it a Branson week. Kendra
