On the Road to Kentucky!

Happy Friday! We are currently on the road (well, in the air) to Kentucky for our bourbon tasting trip. We planned this trip to fall over Labor Day weekend so that we could take advantage of having Monday off, but it also conveniently coincides with our anniversary :)

I came home on Wednesday to this in the fridge:
DSC02966Mike is a good, good man. We both headed to the gym for a quick workout (run for me, spin for him), showered, and snacked on the sushi while watching West Wing before he headed out for a fantasy football draft and I hit the books for the rest of the evening, lol. Talk about a romantic night!
DSC02969But we did it up right last night at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse in Arlington.  I loved my blueberry mojito – so refreshing!
DSC02977I ordered a ribeye and Mike got a filet- no pics because when does steak photograph well? These chipotle potatoes with bacon and chives were a nice change from the usual mashed potatoes/ french fries, but I’d get the fries next time ;)
DSC02981Our server took great care of us; I mentioned at the beginning of the meal that we were celebrating our anniversary and after the meal, as we were waiting for our check to arrive, he surprised us with a free trio of desserts! The peach cheesecake was fantastic and I’m not even a cheesecake lover.
DSC02984A perfect end to the meal :)

Any recommendations for us in the Lexington/ Frankfort, Kentucky area?

Do you have any anniversary/ birthday traditions?  We (almost) always exchange cards, and Mike picks up a box of chocolates. I’d love to start finding small gifts related to the traditional anniversary gift for that year – apparently year 3 is leather!
