Eli and I had a very romantic dinner at a fondue restaurant called the Melting Pot. We started off with the best cheese dip and had lots of fresh meats too...sooo much better than what we have at home for special occasions. Afterwards Eli made me close my eyes until we reached our next destination--a surprise party! I was totally taken off guard (especially since it was a Monday night) and was so pleased that so many people could make it out to celebrate. Last year at this time I was pregnant with Emily, and have had quite an eventful year with so much to be thankful for! Fred came up for the weekend to hang out and to give Eli some "guy time"...very fun!
