I was more than happy to comply and I was so excited to see what he was going to make. When I was finally allowed back home, Craig greeted me at the door and I was surprised to see him still in his nice work clothes (slacks and a button down shirt). As he was walking me through the living room, I could see a beautiful table set up on our back deck. It was adorned with white linen, our china from our wedding (used maybe a total of five times...now six), and a gorgeous bouquet of flowers.
Coming through the kitchen, I was introduced to our personal chef: Chris. He was one of Craig's childhood friends, but the man knew his way around the kitchen. Craig, later, told me that he was a chef at The Gateway to India, Anthony's, and The Spar. Chris had arranged to create for us a 5-course meal. I was in heaven!!!
As we walked to the back and sat at the table, it was clear to see that Craig really thought out every little detail...from the music playing in the background, to the vase holding my bouquet of flowers (it was practically a matching set to the one that he had used at my proposal).
~My 5 Course Meal~
Asparagus with balsamic vinegar and Parmesan Cheese
Berry Salad (Raspberry, Blackberry, Blueberry) with a strawberry puree dressing
Chicken with an orange glaze and garlic mashed potatos
Peach and Strawberry Sorbet
My Cupcake for dessert...I devoured it before remembering to take a picture...OOPS!!
My final surprise from Craig was...
a sweet "Bachelorette" type date. He is whisking me away on a boat plane from Seattle to Orcas Island...where we will be staying at the Rosario Resort!!! How cool is that!! I cannot wait!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!!
