Friday Smile - Anniversary

Wedding Anniversary that is.  Last Friday Husband and I celebrated 6 years of being married.  Sometimes it feels like forever (snicker) and sometimes it feels like it was just yesterday.   

We didn't really celebrate Friday night, but rather we went out on Saturday.  We ate at Ruth's Chris.  Do you have one in your area?  I'm telling you they make the best filet's.  I've never had anything else there, the filet's are that good.  Need I even mention the mashed potatoes?  How about the berries in cream sauce for dessert?  Oh..yum.  I'm drooling just remembering our dinner.



I'm currently taking a Wilton cake decorating class.  This past Tuesday was our second class and we worked on icing a cake and decorating it.   This was my attempt.  I have to admit that I'm rather happy with how I iced it, sure there are mistakes but it was a first attempt.  The decorating..not as happy with it.  I know how I messed up though.  I made two hearts and when I brought it home I told Husband Happy Anniversary. lol!  It's the thought that counts right?

Happy Anniversary to you! Ruth's Chris is awesome, but we can't afford to go there very often. I think your cake is gorgeous.

Happy Anniversary :) My husband and I celebrated at the Chicago Ruth's Chris several years ago - great food and service.
I think your cake looks great!

Bermudaonion - Thanks! We only eat at Ruth's Chris once a year..usually our anniversary. If we eat there more than once it's because a lawyer Husband does business with takes us out. It's a great treat and we always look forward to it. Thanks regarding the cake too. I'm trying!

Mary - Thanks! The service at Ruth's Chris is always great for us too, glad you had the same experience. Thanks regarding the cake as well...I hope to get better and better at it.

Happy Anniversary! I have never heard of Ruth's Chris, but it sounds great.

Your cake came out terrific!

Happy Anniversary! I'm not familiar with Ruth's Chris and I thought for a moment there was something else after the word Chris (like a relative or something LOL) silly me, huh? hahaha

That cake is great! and don't let anyone tell you otherwise hahaha

Happy Anniversary! Hope you have many, many, many more. I've never heard of Ruth's Chris Steak House before but I do have one near me so I may have to go check that out. My grandmother-in-law used to own a cake shop and she's always saying she's going to teach me to decorate but she doesn't visit all that often. Good job for your first attempt!

Happy Anniversary, Kris and Chris! We do have a Ruth's Chris here but I've never eaten there because it is sooooo pricey. But you've made me want to, definitely!

Kris said...

BookAddict - Thanks! and..another reason for you guys to come visit me..we can go to a pricey yummy restaurant. lol

Rachel - lol! Thanks! I'll have to share my creations from this coming weeks class..I think we make flowers. eek!

Ladytink - oh..do visit the restaurant if you want to go somewhere nice to celebrate..it's worth it. You can get a complete meal for one for about $40 (assuming they have the same deal that ours does). I know that's expensive..but for that restaurant it's a good price. I wish I had somebody in the biz who could show me how to decorate! How cool!

Taminator - Thanks! You guys should go for your next anniversary...it's well worth the price for us. I hope yours would be just as good.
