[A Year of Dates] November.

Wednesday, November 11, 2015

This past Saturday, November 7th, was Seth and my FIVE year anniversary! I swear it was just yesterday that we were getting married, I still remember the details vividly, but as the calendar shows, it's been five whole years! I swear I thought that that day was the best day of my life, and on that date - November 7, 2010 - it probably was. But little did I know that the best was yet to come. Seeing Seth with Mason, just living day to day live with the two of them, we are definitely living the dream. These two are perfect for me and I am so happy that I have the rest of my life to spend loving them.

Enough of the sappy stuff, let's get to the celebration! Many, many months ago, I found out that Cirque du Soliel was coming to the OC Fairgrounds this Fall. Cirque du Soliel is kind of our thing and we've now celebrated two anniversaries seeing one of the shows. In fact, if memory serves me correctly, our first anniversary was spent seeing Cirque du Soliel IRIS at the Kodak Theater in Los Angeles.  And now our fifth seeing KURIOS at the OC Fairgrounds in Costa Mesa. (We've also seen TOTEM at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, KOOZA at the Santa Monica Pier, and various other ones in La Vegas - so in case you're wondering, YES I would recommend going to see one if you have the chance!). I bought our tickets way back in April and knew this was what we'd be doing to celebrate our anniversary and for our November date. At that point, I hadn't even thought about what we'd do for dinner, but we later figured that out and made plans at a nearby restaurant called Chart House. This was our first time eating dinner there and it was delicious. We even ended the meal with this heavenly molten lava chocolate cake. It was amazing.






From there we made our way over to the fairgrounds, walked around a little, headed to our seats (which were surprisingly close - go me! lol) and waited for the show to start. I love how to they have entertainers walking around and interacting with the audience while everyone is waiting for the show to start.





Dinner was AMAZING as was the show. And even though we didn't do anything crazy big like I had originally planned (I had hoped for a trip back to Hawaii where we had our honeymoon but since we went on a cruise only two weeks ago, we put a halt on the anniversary vacation this year), it was still a nice night, just the two of us, enjoying a nice dinner and a show and each other's company.

And just for fun, since I didn't blog when we got married... here are just a few of my favorite pictures from our wedding (I seriously LOVE them all so it was hard to choose just a few!).

  6. That is amazing!! I've never been to one of those. I think they have one at Disney Springs. You've had such a great year of dates. Are you going to repeat next year? It's so nice to have a set plan with that. Chris and I had our last legit date back in 2014 haha. Oops. I don't count our movie dates but we do those pretty often. I want to see James Bond sometime soon.

  13. There's a Chart House in Malibu, and it's awesome! I'm guessing they're similar??
    Cirque puts on THE. BEST. shows!! Every time we're in Vegas we make sure to catch a show (LOVE and O are my all time favs). So fun that you've made their shows your anniversary "thing." However, I vote next year you go back to Hawaii. :)
