On Sunday, Corey and I celebrated our first anniversary. Really, we celebrated all weekend. Corey got some box seats to the Panther's pre-season game from work so I hurried home after working in my classroom on Friday to try to throw together some semi Panthers-appropriate outfit. I'll need to work on this for future games.
Two of our friends came with us and we had so much fun enjoying unlimited food and drinks and meeting some fun people. It was a little difficult to focus on the game from inside, though!
On Saturday night, Corey and I had dinner at Dressler's. They were so sweet to seat us at a table with a perfect skyline view and start the night off with a glass of champagne. Of course, one glass wasn't enough so we enjoyed a bottle with dinner. We started with a garlic and goat cheese appetizer and french onion soup. Corey was really excited about the soup and it was delicious!
We each had a salad and steak for dinner. They were both so, so good.
Of course we couldn't say no to a side of macaroni and cheese. (We had tons of left overs to bring home.) We finished the meal off with warm apple cake made by the owner's mother that was just phenomenal. This was by far my favorite meal in Charlotte so far. The feel of the restaurant reminded me a little of one of the steakhouses we loved in Manhattan.
I picked up a backless lace dress from a boutique earlier in the summer. I'd first seen it on Caitlin's blog and loved the open back but didn't fall in love with it until I saw it again months later. I wore the earrings I wore on our wedding day as well as my wedding day Badgley Mischka's.
Sunday was our actual anniversary. We had lots of errands to run and then a pool date with friends before our kickball game. Finally, we enjoyed a little cake. Since our cake was destroyed when we were without power after Hurricane Sandy, our sweet wedding cake baker was so kind to make us a replacement.
It was a perfect anniversary weekend and I am so excited to celebrate many more with my sweet husband. Now, I'm busy getting ready for the start of the school year. This is why I've been a little M.I.A. lately - and will probably continue to be so until school starts next week unfortunately.
Have a great day loves!
