Today is our 3rd wedding anniversary.
We were married at 3:45 on 6.7.8 – ya I know, we’re cool! 🙂
It was a beautiful summer day. There was the threat of rain early on, but it cleared to a beautiful sunshine 70 degree day. We got married in a small town in Wisconsin – the same one my parents got married in! And just down the road, was my parent’s lake place = perfect for wedding pictures and getting ready.
When we were dating, Scott really enjoyed our weekends at the Lake and hanging out in the small town (especially the most awesome bakery!), so when we talked about where to get married, it just seemed right for us. I would not do it any other way, if I were to do it over again. I loved doing everything in a small town. Talking directly to Mary Kay who owns the bakery and who would decorate the cake, dealing with the town mayor who also owned the party hall, and of course, having my Mom help cause she grew up in the town and knows everyone! It was just perfect for us.

We exchanged gifts this morning: we try to stick with the ‘traditional’ wedding anniversary presents, so year 3 is leather. I gave Scott a leather picture frame with his favorite picture of us from our engagement photo session for his desk at work. Check out our engagement story here.
And he gave me a gorgeous leather Coach purse. He knows me so well! 🙂
After work, we braved the heat for a rough 2.5 mile run – so hot! It was well over 100 degrees here in Mankato today, even though our thermometer said 98 when we got back from the run, but Scott reminded me that our sensor is in the shade!
We then took Abby out for walk around the block. She loved it but was just as excited as us to get back to the air conditioned house.
Tonight, we are checked out a new (to us) place in Mankato: Dino’s. They are supposed to have good pizza and Italian dishes and have a nice atmosphere. And they did!
It was a really nice place with brick wall and butcher paper on the tables. I love when they have paper and crayons on the table. We almost always end up with a game of hangman and an anatomical drawing – complete with explanation to Scott! It makes the time fly until dinner comes.

We ordered bruschetta with house made garlic pitas. YUM!
And for dinner we got 2 small pizzas: caprese with balsamic cream sauce, tomatoes, mozzarella and basil
The Dino with mozzarella, pepperoni, sausage and Canadian bacon.
We both preferred the caprese – such good flavors.
We also got turtle cheesecake to go – much better enjoyed on the couch watching an episode of Greek!
Off to enjoy the rest of my anniversary with my honey bunny – have a great night!
