9 Years Update!

Soul Shine Pizza Factory is absolutely delightful. It is nestled in the trendy Nashville area of Division Street. Entertainment, Patio, and Pizza you can not go wrong.

We had the pizza more specifically “The Kitchen Sink”, the name says it all it has everything. Although, all the black olives made it to my side of the pizza because the other half doesn’t care for them. I also had a small Greek salad which was enough for two. The pizza crust was not to thick and not to thin; the perfect combo of crunchy and chewy. The pizza was by no means greasy especially with all the delicious meat toppings of pepperoni and sausage. Soul Shine’s menu has everything from salads, pizza, calzones, Po Boys, and some typical southern Louisiana dishes like Red Beans and Rice.

Now that I’ve finished my Restaurant review. We can get on to the juicy Anniversary stuff. You know how I said on a previous post we don’t usually do Anniversary gifts well the husband did. Don’t you hate that when he gets you something, but you didn’t get him anything! Of course, my husband is just happy to sit, have dinner, and listen to live music. So, I guess you can say that was my gift. Anyways, he surprised me with a Pandora bracelet with the charm #9 for the 9 years of marriage and later as we were talking he surprised me with another charm, a star. Now this one has a special story……

When we were dating my husband then boyfriend bought a Star with one of those National Star Registries. It was a really sweet gift and he even named it “Arzalone”. Isn’t he romantic?

So, there you go a little glimpse into our Anniversary date. What is your favorite place to go on your Anniversary? Do you do the “lets not do gifts this year and still give a gift”?


9 Years!

9 years! Today is the day I have been married 9 years. Yes, it is April Fools, but this is no joke. We actually picked the date on purpose as a joke that if we decided to run we could tell everyone the wedding was April Fool’s joke. Well, we didn’t fool anyone and now 9 years later with 4 kids we are embarking on a new adventure. I’ll have to leave you in suspense for right now and I’ll save that for another blog post. My husband and I don’t really do anything special for our Anniversary we typically go out to eat. We don’t even do cards or gifts because we don’t really need anything and well I’d prefer a hand written note or poem than a card someone else wrote.

This year we are having a pizza date. I know you’re thinking pizza something you can get every day, but this isn’t just pizza it’s music as well. There is this pizza place I’ve never been, Soulshine Pizza Factory and they serve up pizza and entertainment. Oh, and I know its off the Trim Healthy Mama plan, but your allowed to splurge every once in a while plus, I’m maintaining and not actively trying to lose more weight. That is what is so great about eating the THM way you can restart your weight loss in 3 hours. I’ll update you later and let you know if Soulshine Pizza Factory is any good.

So, what better way to celebrate than with a pie and some tunes. What do you do for your Anniversary? Are you low-key or do you like to really like to do it up?
