First of all, I wanted to thank you all for your sweet anniversary wishes in my last post. I know that I always say it, but I have to mention it again - I have the best LJ friends around! Big *HUGS* to all of you! :)

Mark & I ended up having a nice, relaxing anniversary at home. Mark loved the XBox I got him and spent the day playing Topspin (which came with the unit) just to see how the graphics looked. :) And I have to say, Mark knows me VERY well and got me the perfect gift - two tickets to see any musical of my choice. :) Woo hoo! :)

Instead of going to someplace really fancy for dinner, we wanted to go somewhere that we enjoyed, where we didn't have to dress up or drive really far to get to... So we agreed that a dinner at California Pizza Kitchen would be perfect. We love the food there and even though it's right next door to my workplace, I hardly ever go there. So we abandoned our diets for one night and had salads, an appetizer, pizza, and dessert! :) Not the fanciest of places, but very enjoyable nonetheless. All in all it was a really wonderful anniversary! :)

On a much different note, today we all got sent home early from work because the air conditioning in our office was completely broken. :P It went from being incredibly stuffy to downright disgusting at about noon and although they brought in many fans to circulate the air, the lack of any type of ventilation AND today being one of the hottest days we've had here in weeks - certainly didn't make our work place very pleasant. :P People in our office were starting to feel faint, getting headaches from all the heat, and were just generally in a grouchy mood - so our boss sent everyone home at 3:30pm.

On the chance that the AC won't be fixed by tomorrow, we were instructed that it was "casual" day - which I'm certainly not complaining about. :) Any day that deviates from the traditional business attire is a very nice change for us. :) So with casual day tomorrow and a holiday on Thursday, the week is looking like it won't be too bad after all. :)

Hope you all have a nice evening! I'm off to gather the fuzzy dog and go back to studying. :P

Thanks, Carrie - we did! :) Sometimes the best times are days that we just sit around and talk - I can't believe that even after six years of marriage, we can still sit around and talk for hours and hours and never run out of things to say. :)

Haha! Mark knows me VERY well. I couldn't have asked for a better gift. :)

Thanks so much, Lauren. :) Big *HUGS* to you. :)

I'm glad that you both had a wonderful anniversary. :)

Here it's going to be cold again. Right now we have +1°C and I'm drinking warm tea. :)

Hope you have a nice holiday.

Please take care, Sheri. *Hugs*

Thanks, Sabine. :) I have to admit that your cold weather does sound very inviting up there. :) I love the cold and the heat wave we're having here is not very keeping with the holiday feel. ;) Please stay warm and snuggle with Micki. :) Please take care, Sabine. *HUGS* to you! :)

I'm glad you and Mark had a nice day.

Try to keep cool. I'd send some cold weather your way, but it would melt when it got there. LOL

Thanks, Laura. :) Thankfully the air conditioning was working today. :) And if I could fed-ex you some of our warmth (not too much, though since I know you're not one for intense heat) I would. :)

California Pizza Kitchen is one of my favorite places to be!! I think it's a nice classy restaurant! :P

You guys seemed to have a wonderful time, and that's what counts! :)

I love CPK! :) I'm just in love with their Sicilian Pizza! It's SO yummy! And the souffle cake - gosh I'm gaining weight just remembering it! ;)

We did have a wonderful time (and ate waaay too much - but what the heck, it was a special occasion!) :)

I'm glad that you guys had a nice time celebrating your anniversary!

I'm laughing at you needing air conditioning - it snowed so hard here today that we lost our power for five hours!

Thanks Amanda! :) Sorry to hear about your bad weather there! :(
