Our five year anniversary

Yesterday was Timmy's and my five year anniversary. We started the day fairly early (for us) by going to Flat Top Grill for breakfast. For just $10 (or $9 with a student ID), you get unlimited breakfast. I love their setup because instead of a typical buffet where the food has been mass cooked and been sitting on warmers, your food is made specifically for you. You put a colored stick in the bowl telling the cook what you want (choice of an egg scramble, omelette, egg white omelette, french toast, or pancakes), add to the bowl the ingredients you want in it (they have fruits, meats, vegetables, etc.). If you want bacon, breakfast potatoes, etc. on the side, you simply add another colored stick to your bowl for that. Then simply set your bowl by the grill and sit down and relax for a couple minutes until they bring you your food (they provide you with wooden sticks to write your name on so they know whose food they are cooking). There is also oatmeal, fresh fruit, etc. that you can get from the buffet area to munch on until your warm food is done. If you are ever in an area with a Flat Top Grill (there are currently 18 locations throughout five states), I highly recommend you check out Flat Top's breakfast (they only serve breakfast on Saturdays and Sundays). Timmy has had their lunch before and recommends that as well; their lunch and supper is Asian stir-fry set up similarly to how the breakfast is ran.

After breakfast we went to a craft sale ran by the Vaudezilla burlesque company where I picked up a grab bag and this awesome necklace by KymmBang.

When we were done at the craft sale, we headed home to enter a food coma (a.k.a. take a nap) before going out later that night. After the hibernation, we went out to go to a Live Band Burlesque show (sounds awesome, right?). Unfortunately the show was already sold out when we got there. I somehow missed the bright red icon on the webpage that said you could buy the tickets on-line.

Bummed that the highlight to our evening was ruined because apparently I can't read, we headed out to Leona's (a place we both once loved). It didn't go so well, and in the end I decided I am done with Leona's, they are getting no more chances from me. If you are interested in the details, you can read my Yelp review about it (it should be the top review written by P.K. on 11/06).

When we got back home, we looked over the scrapbook that I made Timmy a couple years ago for his birthday. The scrapbook is filled with cards, and memories from the first years of our relationship. It was a nice little flashback, although somewhat depressing; it made me realize how much more people show their appreciation for each other in the beginning of their relationships.

Fortunately Timmy and I both have today, Monday, and Tuesday off for our anniversary, so, we have plenty of time to make up for the show fiasco.
