A fun night out...

Mark and I went out tonight for our 5 year anniversary. We tried a new place down in the Haymarket called Magnolia. Parking was a bit crazy (thank you Regional Baseball) but we were only a few minutes late for our reservation. If you've never visited Magnolia, you should. When you walk in the door they hand all women a rose. It was a unique touch. The environment, food and service were fabulous. I personally recommend the pecan crusted chicken salad with baby greens and apple cider vinaigrette. YUM-O.

Here's a couple shots from inside the restaurant:

And my gorgeous husband during our meal:


After dinner we walked through downtown and back to our car which ended up being the exact route we walked to the hotel from our reception venue 5 years ago. We stopped to snap a quick picture:

Happy 5 years to a gorgeous couple! I hope this 5th year brings you the most luck and good news :)

I heard that the reason they give roses to all the women is in honor of the restaurant's owner's grandmother- for telling her as a woman (from whatever country they're from) she can do what ever she wants to do... pretty sweet. *you guys look GREAT! Miss you! See you soon!

Hooray for five years!!!! That's amazing! Happy Late Wedding Anniversary. I'm glad you two had an incredible dinner together. I'm going to have to look into that new restaurant when Jess gets home on leave.
