We did have a date on Saturday though. We picked up dinner from the hole in the wall BBQ joint that catered our wedding dinner (we hadn’t eaten there since our wedding, so it was pretty perfect that we ate there again a year later) and took it home to eat while watching American Pie (gotta re-cap for American Reunion)
Then, after a much needed nap, Jason suggested we go to Clearwater Beach. Sadly, even though we don’t live that far from the beach, we rarely go. I was game.
We walked the beach and ventured into Frenchy’s Rockaway Grill for some drinks outside facing the ocean. It was dark, but still perfect.
Monday, our actual anniversary hubs took me to the infamous Bern’s Steak House. If you don’t live in Tampa, you may have never heard of it. Or maybe you have. They are very well known for their steak…and wine. They have the world’s largest wine collection, ya’ll. Anyways, its a place I’d never been and is pretty pricey so when hubs suggested Bern’s, I was there.
I didn’t take too many photos (I felt silly and didn’t want to point out the fact to others that clearly this was my first time there) but I can definitely attest to the food being amazing!
We shared a NY strip steak (Um, it was 18oz and they split it for you) and there were def leftovers. They start your meal with this ah-mazing french onion soup, followed by a house salad (where they grow all their own vegetables). When the steak comes out, they serve with a baked potato, crispy onion straws and veggies.
After our meal, we toured the kitchen and wine cellar before having dessert. Bern’s has a seperate dessert room for sweets. Sweet mother, we were already full! But when was the next time we’d be here, so against our better judgement, we ate
I ordered the most amazing caramel bread pudding and J ordered their macadamia nut sundae. We could barely eat our dessert but what we could, was realllly delish!
Our first wedding anniversary was perfect and better than I could have hoped for. Oh! And Jason replaced the necklace I lost last year, I’m a lucky girl.
