The day after Thanksgiving Eric and I celebrated 10 (TEN!!!) years of marriage. Crazy, right? I'm sure a lot of people feel this way, but it feels impossible that it's been that long and impossible it's only been that long at the same time. We've done quite a bit in our ten years, and I'm sure we've got quite a bit more to go.
To officially mark the occasion we went to a spa and Ruth's Chris steak house. We talked about doing something more exotic, or at least different for 10 years, but really, if it ain't broke...
Eric absolutely dies when people take pictures of their food, but I couldn't help it. I knew I was going to need a visual for this story.
10 years ago, the night after we got married we were still in Eugene, OR awaiting our flight back to Utah. We went to a some random restaurant and were feeling fancy so we ordered oysters-probably I was thinking of clams or something and had it in my head that I loved them. The oysters came and it turned out they were definitely not our thing. We had to tell the waitress that we didn't like them so she would take them off our table (because since they were untouched, she was assuming we were working on it). She took them back in the kitchen, which apparently wasn't far because we could hear everyone talking about it. Oye. Eventually she came out and told us that nothing was wrong with the oysters and we would definitely be paying for them. Ha! So awful. That wasn't what we were after at all, but we sure felt lame. Needless to say, we've never ordered oysters again.
10 years later though, it was the seafood tower:
While we didn't love it like we thought we would (once again), at least this time it wasn't inedible ;)
