Little Anniversary Trip.

Many of you know that on November 6th, Sean and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary.
Sean took it upon himself to plan what we would do to celebrate 5 years.
One night in AC (we couldn't do Vegas because closing costs suck) and one night in Philadelphia.

I had plans to document with lots and lots of pictures.
You know, charging my camera and deleting a lot of pictures to free up space on my memory card.

Well, let's just say that I didn't do a great job on that end but we had such a great time. When I think back on it I have the biggest smile on my face because we seriously had so much fun. Our day in AC we stayed up to 5am! Don't ask me what we were doing, haha, but for the fact that we stayed up so late just enjoying ourselves was great to me. It isn't an easy feat at all these days. I didn't take one picture (not even with my phone this day!) I think that is probably a first since I began blogging in 2010.

In Philadelphia, we did a little shopping. I got a coat and Sean got shoes. We walked around the city and checked out a little dive place that hasn't been updated since the 60s and only accepted cash. I will admit that sometimes it is those dives that you have a great deal of fun. 80s music on the jukebox and one delicious Philly cheese steak made the place A-OK to me. Can't remember the name of the restaurant though, boo to me!

After we did a little more walking about and then we headed back to our hotel to get ready for the night. We had dinner at Bistro Romano in Society Hill. It is dubbed one of the most romantic restaurants in Philadelphia. The atmosphere was beautiful, very intimate and rustic inside, and the food was just incredible. I placed the meal that I had there at top 5 meals of my life. For the first time ever, I did not have any leftovers. I was stuffed but I learned that if I take a few deep breaths frequently I can finish it all. But yeah, you're probably waiting to see some food pictures but I was bad and didn't take anything so hopefully you'll take my word for it.

After dinner we went to Rumors to dance the night away or at least until 3am. Whoever told us we were old lied ;) OK, that was us who said that but we proved ourselves wrong. We were hurting the next day though.

I did take a few pictures just because I wanted to get some shots of our 5th wedding anniversary weekend. The thing is that when I look at these pictures I can tell that I was taking them just for taking sake. I'm going to remember this for the next time because I don't like it. Anyway, the pictures aren't really a good representation of that weekend but it was the best one that we've had in a while.

Not sure if I would trust cookies from here.

In fact, you know it's a good one when the two of you keep wondering if the next trip you take will be as fun as this one.
I love my Seany man and feel so, so blessed to be able to do life with him.
