|These beautiful flowers started our long weekend off wonderfully.|
|I amused myself on the car ride to Eureka Springs by making goofy faces.|
|My husband is too cute for words =)|
|We walked up the steepest hill ever to get to the "haunted" Crescent Hotel.|
|We stopped to admire pretty scenery.|
|Not the Blue Ridge Parkway, but still pretty.|
|Spent a beautiful Sunday in Little Rock @ the Big Dam Bridge.|
|And took Hermione for an adventure at the dog park.|
On our actual anniversary, we took advantage of a gift certificate to one of our favorite restaurants, So!, and had an absolutely amazing dinner.
|My favorite meal in Little Rock: Seared scallops & squid ink linguine.|
This was absolutely delicious, as usual. The problem: the portion has gotten significantly smaller and the price has stayed high (this dish was $30). I can maybe forgive them for losing a scallop. The scallops are huge, and I know first hand how expensive they are. But I don't get why they felt the need to seriously skimp on the pasta?
|Same dish; ordered in May 2011.|
|Primo Louis Filet|
This was excellent. A perfectly cooked beef tenderloin, on top of a bacon hash-brown, topped with lump crab meat and a creamy chardonnay sauce. Absolutely perfect. The meat was so tender and delicious, and that bacon hash-brown was amazing. the texture was crunchy on the outside, creamy on the inside, and hello! Bacon! Yum =)
|Key Lime Layered dessert|
OH MY GOD. So amazing. The crust was actually a very dense layer of cake (kind of tasted like a very thick cookie), topped with key lime curd and then the gooey key lime pie filling. This was perfect. I could have eaten about five of these... but for some stupid reason, Graham & I decided to share this one.
We got home from dinner, and drank champagne in our crazy expensive, gorgeous Swarovski champagne flutes. This is the third time we've used them, and I adore them. It makes an already special occasion feel a little more special.
