LWD & 4 year Anniversary Recap

Recently I did a post celebrating my marriage to Chantry for 4 years here, but I wanted to leave you a short photo filled (and outfit post) of our Anniversary recap and date night.

We ended up going to Ruby Tuesday for our dinner (we had a coupon) so I had a scrumptious Chicken Bella entrée (chicken covered with mushroom sauce) and grilled zucchini and fries. The buttery biscuits they bring out to you before your meal of course are to DIE for, I couldn’t get enough. It felt like forever since eating at a restaurant, so we enjoyed every moment of it. Then we sat in Starbucks and drank our beverages (an iced coffee for me, iced green tea for him). We talked and Chantry had some fun gathering information from the baristas, his survey question was “When was the last time you read a book just for your enjoyment?” the baristas couldn’t tell him as they had no clue. I answered with when the twins were first born. My hubby is HIGHLY under the impression that people are becoming less intelligent, as people are so into their technology devices, and less on actual reading, learning and applying. That the art of literacy is dying. (He has agreed to do a post on this on here sometime as he is so passionate about this topic). What are your thoughts on this so that he can address it? When was the last time you read a book front to cover? A magazine front to cover?

Next we went walking and swimming in a river near home (in the dark-I might add. We are just that risky). We ended the night watching Police Academy 3 at home.

This Merona, LWD(little white dress) was the dress I bought from Target the day before we got married. I wore it to the wedding rehearsal and rehearsal dinner and to my own home sleepover with the girls before the BIG day the next day. I am just shocked that it still fits me, so I had to wear it again. What do you think?

****Fact: after the rehearsal stuff I was so tired I didn’t stay up with the girls staying with me but instead went into my bedroom tired and cried because I was overwhelmed with that night being my last night single and about to marry. Am I the only one that cried before they got married? Feelings of joy, fear and sorrow?

    I agree with your husband, lol! It’s so true. Growing up, I read my fair share of books and magazines where grammar is a requirement. Now with social media and the internet being what I read the most, words are replaced with letters. Well thought out ideas and stories are replaced with videos of idiots doing dumb things (for entertainment purposes, of course)! …but I guess I’ll save it for your husband’s post, haha!

    Your outfit is adorable and you guys look so happy! My husband and I just had our 4 year anniversary with a night away from our munchkin. So, I know exactly how you feel!

    Glad you guys had fun!

    Looks like fun! I agree, my husband and I were just talking about the same thing! We are big into our kids reading and take them to the library often but it really is not common much now.

    Congrats on 4 years of marriage once again. It will be my 10th anniversary next year.

    I loved all of these photos. You look beautiful in that LWD. I love both of your statement necklaces, especially the multi-colored ones. Those stones look like bugs which makes the necklace even cooler. 😉

    P.S. I finally E-Mailed you back. Thanks again for the E-Mail.
