Anniversary Getaway

Q and I will be celebrating our fourth anniversary on Thursday. We had an early getaway this past Friday and Saturday to celebrate! 

The first thing we did when we arrived in Denver was check into our hotel, The Hotel Teatro. It is a gorgeous building inside and out. Theater costumes and pictures of stage actors decorate the walls. The service was phenomenal, too! It was such a treat to stay there.

Next, we strolled along 16th street and visited a few shops.

Q treated me to three new lotions from Bath and Body Works. I bought three on my trip to CA, too, so I feel like I'm well-stocked for a while now. I even left the store with a few in mind to get the next time. I suppose you can never have too many of these sweet scents!:)

We enjoyed dinner at The Broker Restaurant. It is located inside a bank vault. It was very fancy and so unique looking. We loved it. The food was also wonderful. Q had a delicious rib eye steak and I had walnut dijon chicken.

Since we were so full from dinner, we decided to walk around for a bit before getting dessert. There is a Kevin Taylor restaurant inside the opera house where we were going to see a show, so we decided to eat there. Q had creme brulee' and I had this chocolate ice cream sandwich. The description of it said that it had "raspberry paint" so I wondered what it would look like. I thought that the sandwich would have a drizzle of raspberry sauce on it. Instead, the plate looked like it was painted with the raspberry sauce and the ice cream sandwich was placed on top of it. I'm definitely keeping this idea in mind to use on home made desserts.

So, you want to know what show we got to see? Take a look at our tickets:

Fiddler on the Roof is an outstanding production! We had both seen the movie before, so we were familiar with the story line. There was lots of comedy woven in, so we laughed a lot. You've got to go see it if you haven't yet.

We arrived at the hotel after eleven, so we were so tired from a fun and busy day. We slept in on Saturday morning, then had a brunch before leaving. There was another big event that I couldn't miss an hour away from home. As soon as we got home, I changed, gathered a few things and got in my car and drove to the next location. You'll have to come back tomorrow to find out where I went...

I had a wonderful time with my Q. I'm thankful that God gave him to me and that we are celebrating another year of wedded bliss.
