The Best Four Years!

 Its crazy to think that Mike and I have been married for four years already. Time truly does fly it feels like yesterday we were beginning our journey together as a couple. For our four year anniversary Mike and I celebrated by eating at a restaurant down town called Co Co Sala. They are well known for their CHOCOLATE.... what more could a girl ask for? We had a lot of fun taking the metro downtown and then walking to the restaurant. We had a difficult time deciding what to order we were too focused on the desserts and realized we needed some nutrition before desert came. My favorite thing about the evening was not being rushed at the resturant. I dis like resturants that want you to come in eat and leave we had such a nice time talking, laughing, and being us. Here is what we ordered:

(gruyère, parmigiano reggiano, roquefort, & cheddar / chipotle chocolate tomato cream sauce)

Main Course: 
(tandoori chicken patties / cardamom carrots & greens /rosemary & parmesan fries) 

BACON MAC & CHEESE  (Erin's choice)
(orechiette / four cheeses / crispy bacon)

‘BASIL & BERRY SHORTCAKE’ (Mike's choice)
(strawberry shortcake / lemon mascarpone cream / basil foam /cocoa nib crunch) 

‘A STICKY SITUATION’ (Erin's choice)
(warm sticky toffee pudding cake / chocolate shavings / brown butter toffee sauce / ginger caramel ice cream) 

 Look how cute our desert is... I was able to eat my whole dessert with out ruining the chocolate writing... Mike was laughing at me. :)

After dinner we walked around downtown for an hour or so. I love Mike he is the best husband any girl could ask for. I love you Mike, thanks for a great four years so far can't wait for the rest of our lives. Love you.

It's been a while...

Three words followed by three descriptive words which makes a total of six words for the upcoming sentence. New York City, Fast, Delicious and Colorful. We loved the hustle and bustle of the city, we ate phenomenal food, and we loved all of the different buildings and posters that add splashes of color to  New York. 

 Empire State Building not a fan of the cold air but was worth freezing our hind ends off for the spectacular view of the city.

 Love the streets and love the sky line.

 Hanging out in the middle of Wall street and seeing who could call a cab first

 Late Show anyone? Mike wants to go...
 13.1 miles here we come
 Going, going, Gone!

 Mike I can't believe I did it... seriously my legs felt like jello after I was done
 Check out the cool medals we got.
 Carol, you are so pretty and fun to hang out with
 There are plenty of things and people to take pictures of in NYC.
Had a great time and can't wait to go back.
