Fifth Anniversary

Friday, October 4 was our fifth wedding anniversary (time really does fly when you're having fun...and chasing around a toddler)! To celebrate, we decided it would be fun to have an "Anniversary Skip Day" from work. And let me tell you, it was a brilliant idea.

After dropping off Ava at daycare, Josh had to go in to work for a couple hours in the morning, so I went back to sleep for a bit (clearly). Then we headed to lunch at Matt's, which included lots of greasy food, Bob Armstrong Dip, and sangria-ritas. Perfection.

Then it was time to change into our PJs and curl up on the couch for an afternoon movie and TV marathon...something that is an extremely rare occurrence these days.

It was so nice to enjoy a relaxing, kid-free day together. Just like the old days :). 

In addition to our fun day on Friday, Josh and I enjoyed a nice dinner on Saturday at Fearing's. Even though it was exactly the same meal that I got last time (for our third anniversary), I couldn't help but order the fantastic tortilla soup as well as the filet that comes with mashed potatoes, a spinach enchilada, and chicken fried lobster. Yep...chicken fried lobster!

The folks at Fearing's are also incredible when it comes to dinner celebrations. Since we mentioned it was our anniversary, we not only received a free piece of "wedding cake" for dessert, but they also boxed up some treats to take home.

(You can see my dapper husband behind the box of goodies.)

It was such a wonderful anniversary! Here's to many, many, many more just like it.

About Me

My name is Catherine, but most of my friends call me Cat. I was born and raised in Austin, went to TCU, and ended up in Dallas for law school (where Josh and I met). I decided that being an attorney was not my cup of tea and pursued a career in legal marketing instead. I am now a mother of two attempting to balance family with a full-time job, which is always an adventure. I love: my sweet babies, handsome husband, very large family, and fabulous friends; trying new restaurants; wine; TCU football; holidays; cooking; The Bar Method; pajamas; La Croix; reading; coffee; podcasts; Central Market; carbs; the beach; mani/pedis; Anthropologie; binge-worthy TV shows; trivia; French 75s; Pinterest; cheese boards; The Ticket; dancing; Sprinkles cupcakes; The Texas Rangers; fresh flowers; thunderstorms; naps; Tex-Mex; the Texas Hill Country; porch-sitting; ranch dressing; throwing parties; and my job. I hate: working-mom guilt; snakes; heights; waking up early; ignorant people; stomach bugs; paper cuts; green fruit; snoring; bad hair days; the sound of people eating (Misophonia); scary movies; bad drivers; pulpy OJ; trimming baby fingernails; and Miracle Whip. I think that about sums it up.
