We celebrated our five year anniversary this month. We can’t believe it has already been five years since this:

For our fifth year anniversary, we wanted to do something a little bit special. We had two different date nights. The first night, we went out to La Fondue and did the full course meal. Yum! You get a salad, cheese fondue, meat (grilled), and then chocolate fondue (our favorite). It was all really, really delicious. We were getting pretty stuffed by the end, even though it was a very long dinner. From start to finish is usually around 2.5 – 3 hours. La Fondue is known for having some really adventurous meats that you can try, but we didn’t go too crazy. We had chicken, beef, lamb, and the most unusual was wild boar. Chris didn’t mind it, but it wasn’t my favorite. 
For our second date night, Chris had planned a surprise. And Chris loves to surprise me and drag the surprise out as absolutely long as possible. The surprise activity was Paint Nite! I was truly surprised. This is not something you see us doing every day. 

Paint Nite is where you come and they have everything set up for you and a simple picture that you will be shown how to paint by the instructor. They walk you through the paining step by step, and break it down so that even us accountants can paint a pretty picture.

I found that for me, the hardest part was to stop painting. I’m a perfectionist and I was never quite happy with how it looked. We had a 10 minute break while we let most of our painting dry before moving on to the second half, and I found myself fixing and tweaking parts of it for the whole 10 minutes. Luckily, though I was constantly painting, it dried enough for me to continue.

This is our nearly finished pictures (I think I spent another 15 minutes trying to fix just a couple more little spots…)

I thought this was a really fun way to celebrate together. We were able to talk and laugh while we painted.

Love you Chris!
