A few weeks ago Lee and I went out to PJ's White River Lodge in Norfork, AR which is a little B&B on the White River. Lee and I try to get away every 6 months or so just to hang out by ourselves and look back over the last 6 months of marriage. We didn't really get the chance to do this on our anniversary a few months ago since I was finishing up my thesis, then we went to Glorieta, then school started. Glorieta was nice but we didn't have much alone time. I bought a Groupon a while back for PJ's and we were finally able to use it a few weeks ago. It was such a nice drive, there and back. Plus we were able to eat a nice steak dinner at the attached restaurant. I'd love to go back and stay longer.

|Yes, that is Lee crawling back through the fence we had to cross to take the picture. Shhh, don't tell.|
So, Lee had his 27th birthday this past Wednesday. Lee's not a big birthday (or any kind of celebration) fan, but of course I had to do something for him since I love birthdays. Lee doesn't really like deserts, but he has recently discovered he likes cheesecake. I attempted to make him a cheesecake for his birthday and it actually turned out pretty well. It wasn't super pretty to look at but it tasted good. It didn't crack which I count as a success, but it did get a little brown on top. If anyone knows how to fix that let me know. I got the recipe here, and it's not my Aunt Lori's famous cheesecake, but it's still pretty good. I also got Lee a Razorback money clip since he'd been using an old binder clip for a while. His new one looks a little nicer.
|Yummy cheesecake. Cherries were added later.|

So that's what's been going on with us. What's been going on in your neck of the woods?
The Groupon link is a referral link. If you haven't signed up for Groupon yet you really should. There's some great deals there.
