Nine Month Mensiversary: Brunch

rainbowcakeSkipping around a bit; i posted earlier about my first month anniversary and celebrating it.  We’ve celebrated each month in some fashion, but I haven’t quite written them up yet.   Well this weekend was nine months and we celebrated with brunch. 

Brunch may not seem like a huge deal, but this was never about being a huge deal.  We’d been recommended this place, called The Bethwood, as having good brunch, and we had not been out for brunch together since we’d gotten married.  Sunday made for a perfect time to do so.  It was a lazy day, just hanging out with each other, eating too much food and relaxing.  A perfect lazy married Sunday. 

The Bethwood was very good; omelettes, waffles, a Viennese table, carved meats, pasta salads, fruits, vegetables, pastries and bagels and breads and cheeses and all sorts of wonderful foods.  We got there early, so it wasn’t that crowded yet.  They served a complimentary glass of champagne to start too.  This actually disappointed me; they chose a Verdi prosecco, which I felt was too sweet for a breakfast champagne.  Still tasted good with a little orange juice splashed in it though.

Celebrating Our First Month Wedding Anniversary

Between the amazing wedding and the unbelievable honeymoon to Hawaii, the letdown afterwards was quite harsh.  One of the ways we chose to mitigate that was to celebrate each month of our anniversary.   We weren’t doing this for excuses to buy huge presents or anything, but simply to recognize and remember.

We declared the one ‘monthiversary’ the gourmet hamburger anniversary.  We got burgers from Bobby’s Burger Palace and sat together and enjoyed them.  Bobby’s makes great burgers and it’s always a nice treat to eat them.  Certainly better than Bubba Burgers out of the freezer.

So nothing overly fancy or heavily planned out.  Just a simple dinner to represent one month of marriage bliss.
