Anniversary Dinner and Angie Smith

Yesterday was anniversary #5 and here is a little glimpse of our lovely evening in photos:

First we went to church at Oak Hills because my FAVORITE blogger/writer, Angie Smith was guest speaking and I absolutely LOVE her!!!  (If you are unfamiliar with her story, read it here - so heartbreaking and inspiring) I don't remember how I stumbled upon her blog, maybe at (in)courage which you should probably also be reading :) but her words are rich in truth and she tells it like it is, but in the sweetest southern style that I appreciate oh so much!  She is super smart, totally hilarious, and above all she loves the Lord more than anything. Clearly I think she's simply fabulous, so Andrew knew right away when we saw that she and her husband's equally amazing band, Selah, were going to be here that we would be spending part of our anniversary going to see them. Bonus: he didn't mind waiting around like a groupie so I could meet my beloved Angie and have her sign my book; in fact, he just might have a crush on Mrs. Smith as he mentioned something about her resembling Natalie Portman :)  Anyway, we hit it off right away and she was super duper sweet, so I'm pretty sure me and Ang are going to be BFF's.

Her husband's band, Selah, led us in beautiful worship.

After church and my photo sesh with Angie, we headed to Hemisfair Park downtown where we had dinner in this... the Tower of the Americas rotating 750 feet above San Antonio.

 Oh, and there was a little shopping at my favorite store, TJ Maxx Home Goods.

San Antonio is much prettier at night... read into that what you will, but bragging that you can "see all the way to Oklahoma" from your backyard is not a selling point for us Californians!

Dinner was delicious!  For our main course, Andrew ordered filet mignon medallions with crab bernaise, asparagus, and mashed potatoes. I had lobster truffle mac and cheese. It was a little bite of heaven. And now I want everything to be sprinkled with truffles... So good!  For dessert we ordered chocolate lava cake (just like the melting cake we got every evening with dinner on our honeymoon cruise.) But this one was even better because it had Heath Bar chunks and chocolate liqueur sauce drizzled on it. Yum!
  Year 6 is off to a great start!


  1. Oh my gosh, what an awesome celebration!!! So jealous you met Angie!! AND-- further proof that we are definitely real-life BFF material-- CHOCOLATE MELTING CAKE IS WHAT WE ATE EVERY NIGHT OF OUR HONEYMOON, TOO!!!! And I still dream of it basically every day. It was one of the main reasons we chose another cruise to be one of our first post-marriage vacations a few years ago-- MELTING CAKE!! Yours with Heath bars and liqueur sounds extra amazing, though!! Jealllllous!!!
