Anniversary fun

As usual, I'm a bit late keeping you updated on our whereabouts. Anyhow, we had a fabulous anniversary weekend celebrating our 2nd year married. First, we planted some new plants in the front yard. I was very excited to harvest my first batch of compost from my composter and use it in the garden. It took a lot of sifting to get all the critters out, but finally, I ended up with some really good looking compost!
I bought a few plants at the Armstrong garden center here in Long Beach: creeping rosemary, mint, lavender, and chocolate mint! Seth and I tilled up some small patches in the front planters and mixed in the compost.
So far, the plants are still alive and they look like they might work here!
Then, Seth took me out to a swanky restaurant, called the Sky Room in Long Beach for dinner. It was sooooo fabulous! We had a great time. The building was built in the 1930's and has a lot of it's original art deco molding and architecture. They have an elevator attendant who wears a tuxedo and a top hat and tells you historical facts about the building on your way up to the top! So fascinating.
We even got dessert! MMmmmmmm...
The waiter took a terrible picture of us in the restaurant, so we took one ourselves at home. It was a fun night.
