A stranger in a familiar land

Sometimes I like to be a tourist in my own city. The Husband and I will celebrate our 4th wedding anniversary on Wednesday at the Cirque de Soleil show in town. Usually we have a lovely dinner but that's a weeknight so we only have time to grab something quick. Never a pair to pass up an opportunity to share a good meal, we had our dinner out on Friday night instead.

View from The 360: Sept 30, 2011
On our first anniversary we went to The 360, the revolving restaurant at the CN Tower. I have lived in Toronto my whole life and had never been. However, on our first anniversary I was 12 weeks pregnant. Going to a restaurant with a spectacular wine list while knocked up? Cruel and unusual punishment. On Friday I got my do-over. Wine and cocktails and beer, oh my! Oh, and there was some food too.

Before we left my mom taught The Parasite how to say "Happy Anniversary" (or something close to it) and it was cute as hell. But do you know how she REALLY said Happy Anniversary? By getting up at 5:30 instead of her usual 7:00 on Saturday morning. Happy Nadabursary indeed!

Congratulations on 4 years of marriage. My wife and I just celebrated our 4th anniversary in July.

Happy Anniversary! It sounds like you had a great time. I think you should return the 5:30 anniversary gift. Doesn't sound good for you.

BrSpiritus, thank you! And a belated Happy 4th to you too!

Small Town Mommy, I'd try to send her back where she came from but she's considerably larger now... :S
