Mutual Love

Katie took a pic of us before we went out tonight.
The one where I was all the way in the picture was blurry, ha ha.

Corey surprised me!!!! Yep, he pulled it off! I got an evite from Open Table yesterday afternoon inquiring if I would like to have dinner with Corey Thompson at the Melting Pot tonight at 6:30pm. Would I!!!!! I was definitely surprised because we had already planned an overnight getaway at the end of the month in Atlanta, the night before the homeschool expo. So, he finally surprised me! :)

I am so happy that Corey and I have a mutual love for The Melting Pot. A lot of guys don't like it because it's a little pricey and you have to cook your own food. But Corey and I have always loved it since our first visit. (by the way, our first visit was with Andy and Bethany, on our mutual 5th wedding anniversaries, they got married two weeks before us, can you believe that has been FOUR years ago now?!?!) We LOVE cheese fondue, Corey loves the variety of meats he gets with his entree, and I simply just plain adore chocolate fondue!

When we were seated at the table, I had a beautiful bouquet of roses/flowers waiting for me at the table! SO not something usually would do, totally surprised!!!!

We usually do the "Big Night Out" which is a special assortment of their current special flavors/meats/salad/dessert, but I wasn't crazy about the Pacific Islands theme, so we went a la carte instead. We got the classic cheddar cheese fondue for starters. The salad special was lettuce wraps which Corey got an actually ate all of!!!, and I got the California salad. Corey chose a signature platter of meats (steak, shrimp, salmon, chicken) and I got the vegetarian entree (artichoke hearts, portobello mushrooms, asparagus, two different raviolis, tofu, and onion slices). I should have taken a picture of the plates of food when they came out, it definitely looked like "his and hers." ha ha.

For dessert we chose the cookies n cream chocolate fondue...with pound cake, rice krispies, cheesecake, brownies, marshmallows, strawberries, and bananas for dipping. Mmmmmmm! It was so good!

We had a very yummy dinner, and on top of it all, when we left, Corey had arranged for me to get chocolate dipped strawberries to go! Here's a pic!

Great anniversary dinner, even if it was a day late! :) I can't believe at all that it has been NINE years!!! I am so not old enough to have been married that long!!!!!!! Yay for us!

As I have already FB'ed and Twittered, I really, really want to go there again. We are going to have to work out a double date again sometime. Or perhaps I can talk Andy into a romantic night out, even if ya'll are not available. You are making me hungry just writing about it!
Good job Corey! (and yes, you are WAY too young to have been married that long)
