Last night we celebrated our Anniversary at the MELTING POT - which is worth every penny. Awesome, quiet atmosphere, yummy food, and a chance to be just the two of us. Today we spent the day at the Air Force vs. Navy football game and came home to home-made Cafe Rio pork salads with friends. I couldn't ask for a better husband. I'm so glad we've been together for EIGHT years! Can't wait to see what the next 8 will bring...
