anniversary 2012.

This years anniversary was perfection. Since we had, "A Christmas Carol" on our actual anniversary night, we celebrated early. Using my birthday present from my in-laws, we got a nights stay at the Marriott at city creek. Now, this is the perfect winter date night. Because within walking distance (aka-2 blocks), we went to city creek, Cheesecake Factory, the candy windows at Macy's, and the temple lights-plus swimming at the hotel after! It was magnificent. Something that was different this year was a little question game we played through dinner. It sparked some really awesome conversation between Addi and I. And I learned some things that I didn't know about him! So, if your anniversary is coming up, or you have a date night this week, here were some of our favorite questions:

-name your top five pet peeves (not about each other, sillies!)
-name five things that make you the happiest right now.
-what are some of your biggest strengths?
-if you could live anywhere, where? and why?
-describe your family dynamic childhood vs. now.
-what do you think people most misunderstand about you?
-list ten things you hope to be remembered for.

This filled up a good 2 hours of conversation for us! My favorite was hearing Addison's testimony as we walked around the temple looking at the lights. He really is such a good man. Also, if the Cheesecake Factory menu intimidates you (as it does me), try the Thai lettuce wraps. Honestly, SO good.
