We had a fabulous dinner at Mercury Chophouse (look for it in a future Foodie Friday), followed by a beer at one of our favorite local English pubs, Ye Olde Bull and Bush (this is the only place I could get the Husband to sit down and work on wedding stuff). It was a great date night and we spent the evening reliving our favorite moments of the wedding and reminding ourselves how grateful we are to have such great families and friends.
