The Swedes & the Italians help us celebrate our love

CSP wasn’t feeling so hot last night so we celebrated our anniversary tonight.  We went to IKEA first to check out all the new Summer stuff.  And sofas.  We need a new sofa.  And either a love seat or a chair & a half with an ottoman.  Apparently they are in the middle of discontinuing some models and coming out with new ones.  The sofa lady said check back next month so we’ll see what they come up with.  All that and we only ended up buying a dust pan! Ha!

After IKEA we went to Carrabba’s for dinner.  You know we aren’t huge fans of chains but this is one of the few we like a lot.  We had the BEST waitress.  CSP told me to keep my trap shut and there was no need to tell her it was our anniversary but of course I did.  She totally hooked me up with a fabulous salad which was awesome because I’m not a fan of their regular house salad (celery, olives & carrots).  So she had them make for me a salad with pine nuts and a big fried goat cheese disc.  SO good.  She also made me mango iced tea (not on the menu but should be). CSP and I had our favorites- he got the Pollo Rosa Maria and I got the Chicken Bryan.  Fab.  Then our wonderful waitress surprised us with free dessert! CSP got the tiramisu CSP got the tiramisu @ Carrabba's and I tried the new Limoncello Bread Pudding. Limoncello bread pudding @ Carrabba's OMG SO good! We had leftovers and she packaged them up so nicely- including a fresh loaf of bread and olive oil and those herbs you dip them in!  We found this in our doggy bag- olive oil and dipping herbs! They really took such good care of us.  She gave us a coupon book to come back and get freebies.  Love her!  I’m totally calling her boss and angling for a bonus or something for her!

When we got home I set the camera up on self timer and we took our official photo for our adoption file since we were looking nice. The battery in my remote was dead so I did a lot of running back and forth but we finally got a decent shot! Our official photo for our adoption file.  We look like we'd be great parents right? :)
