5 years already?

Yesterday was the fifth anniversary of my first date with Mark. I forgot. I didn't really forget. I know our first date was March 24, I just don't ever know the current date. Anyhoo, Mark remembered and surprised me with a date to Tokyo Wako where we went on our first date. We hadn't been there in so long, and it was delicious!

Then, because Mark knows no special occassion is complete without sugar, he took me to Cherry on Top, which is a frozen yogurt place near our house where you fill your own cup with yogurt and toppings. It's similar to Pinkberry, which is also a few blocks from us, but I like this place better. The yogurt isn't as tart.

They have every topping in the world, I think, including tons of fresh fruit, which you can see didn't get anywhere near my cup. I love fruit, but I can't even see it when it's surrounded by cheesecake bites, peanut butter cups, and cookie crumbs.

Mark also got me a beautiful bouquet of mixed flowers.

Instead of plunking them into one big vase, I decided to break it up into mini bouquets to spread around the house. So I gathered some little vases and containers, and now I've got a pretty reminder in almost every room.

Bean appreciates a beautiful rose, too. (Actually, he was about a half second away from taking a big bite out of it here.)

  1. I love the fact that you spread the flowers out in the house, very smart idea. Todd and I have also been together for 5 years,in August, we started dating (even though it was online) in May. It's amazing how fast the time goes by, but Todd says that that's a good thing?! :D
