Anniversary Dinner at Home

As usual we celebrated our actual anniversary at home with a nice meal prepared by yours truly!
I didn't decide until the day of, what I was going to make but finally settled on 'Shrimp Diane'.
This meal has sentimental meaning to us because Brad made it for me the night we got engaged.
We were turned onto the dish after enjoying it at Charlotte's Cajun Queen.
So, I picked up some fresh shrimp.
 And, a couple bottles of wine.
This bottle also has special meaning because we enjoyed it on the first part of our honeymoon.
Brad thought he was going to have to work late but made it home at a decent hour after all.
Love this picture.
My little baldy!
 I set the table and then it was dinner time.
 No gifts.
Just cards.
 Dinner was delish!
I used this shrimp Diane recipe in case you're interested.
 As always, we took our annual picture of ourselves.
No makeup for me this year.
I exercised before cooking and showered and decided against it.
Here's to our 3rd year of marriage!!
I love our traditions!
What do you and your spouse do for anniversaries?

Congrats on 3 years and love your new blog design. We don't do anniversary gifts either. We just save and go visit a new city :)

Congrats! Shrimp Diane sounds awesome. Unfortunately, I am terrible with dates and usually forget our anniversary. :/
