Anniversary Dinner!!!

My husband and I had a fabulous celebration Friday night!! Thank y'all so much for your sweet comments about our story on how we met. The Lord truly intervened and miraculously allowed us to have Ella in bed asleep by 7:00 so we could thoroughly enjoy our evening just the two of us! When does that happen?

Heath choose for us to not go out, it had been raining all day and what I really wanted to do was go to Gloria's and sit on the patio, but that wasn't an option and I'm sure glad it wasn't. Heath went to the store and got all the ingredients to make homemade chicken fettuccine alfredo. This has always been a special meal for us because it has been my favorite for years. We always have it on Valentine's Day, Heath had our friends, Peter and Melissa, bring it to our picnic dinner the night he proposed, and it was the last meal I ate at Olive Garden with Curtis and Amanda when I went into labor 5 weeks early. Fettuccine alfredo is a part of big happenings in my life.

But never have I had homemade. Heath used 4 different kinds of cheeses, Asiago, Parmesan, Mozzarella and a little Pepper Jack. It was the best thing I've ever tasted. I'm obsessed with it. A total party in my mouth, as Sunni would say. It really is consuming me it was so good. I feel like when I was pregnant and I obsessed over one thing constantly until I finally got it. Thankfully we have lots of left overs, so I can enjoy it all week! In fact, I just stopped writing for 15 minutes so I could go heat up a bowl and eat it. Yum!

On a totally different note, maybe y'all should stay off of your blogs for a while because the stomach virus going around landed at our house Friday night around 3:00 a.m. It started with Ella and ended with me. Thankfully, it wasn't that bad of a strand for us. We were both only sick for about 12 hours and then totally fine.

You have to get Heath to post the recipe! It looks really good. It's so funny that you loved that meal so much at Olive Garden that it sent you into labor. So glad you're feeling better!
