Happy Happy Happy Happy Happy Anniversary

Nate and I celebrated our 3rd anniversary on Aug. 19th, 2007. Actually we celebrated on the 17th or something like that. Since we went to Catalina Island just last month, we didn't feel justified in taking another big trip (even though I tried my best to figure out a way back to Catalina), so we decided to spend our anniversary in the city we live closest to...Denver.

Nate found a great price on a hotel room in the Denver Tech Center area that had close access to the light rail so we could spend some time in downtown Denver without having to drive and park there. Here's a couple pictures of our delux room, with windows forming a half circle along one entire wall, and a nice view of the "not that exciting" Tech Center.


After we checked in at the hotel, we took the light rail to downtown Denver and ate at one Denver's favorite steakhouses called the Chophouse.



Nate accused me of sucking in my belly for this picture. To this accusation I replied "duh." Also, if you're wondering about the fabulous handbag I have, it is a noisy stuff original and the creator's blog link can be found on the right side of our blog. Below are some snaps of the food we gorged ourselves on.


We were so excited to have crab since (believe it or not) we don't get to eat that much fresh crab here in Colorado. The steaks were also of course delicious. I know you can't see mine very well, but I would like to point out the fact that it was 16 oz. That's a pound of meat folks. I decided to order it because I love pepper, and it was the only pepper crusted steak on the menu. Plus I'm eating for two right? Don't you think a 5 oz. baby needs 8 oz. of steak all to itself??? (Don't worry I didn't eat it all...not that I would tell you if I did.)
The next morning when it was time to go home, we were both kinda bummed. It really felt like we were a lot farther away than we actually were. Although, we were certainly happy about the fact that it was only a 20 min. drive home.

Below are some pictures of previous anniversaries. The first of course is on our wedding day. The next picture on the left is in Portland for our first anniversary, and the picture on the right is our second anniversary in Washington/Canada at Lorne and Laurel's wedding. Apparently across the years I prefer to stand/sit on Nate's left.

Mandy,
You're like a sexy mama in this picture. I forgot how long your hair was.

I hate you, You don't even look pregnant. Good for you for sucking in your belly, I don't think I ever did. Obviously I still don't, because the little ladies at the pharmacy always excitedly ask me when the new one is due.

Hey, happy anniversary! You always have the cutest outfits on. And I agree, you really don't look pregnant you skinny mini.
