To celebrate my 29 years of life, Mr. Rochester was a trooper and did whatever I wanted to do. We went (together) to a boutqiue show/craft fair and then walked around an outdoor mall. My sole purpose in going to the mall was to visit the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory to get one of these:You can try and convince yourself that these apples must not be as good as they look. But believe me, they taste better than they look. They are absolutely delicious! The first time I ever had one of these caramel apples was during our honeymoon. After that I was hooked. While we were still living out west, Mr. Rochester and I made it a tradition to get caramel apples around our anniversary...and sometimes, if we (usually me) had a craving, we would get them at other occasions during the year. When we moved to the south, I was sad to leave behind our fun tradition. I didn't think a place with the name "Rocky Mountain" in it would be anywhere near us. However, a few months ago, to my delight, I found out that there is a Rocky Mountain Chocolate factory about 25 minutes away from where we live. Getting that apple was the main thing I wanted to do for my birthday. I got one and it was delicious. And guess what...our anniversary is next month so I should get to enjoy another one of these again soon! We have to keep the tradition alive!
The rest of the day we watched football and visited with some of our best friends who recently moved to the area. To top off the day, Mr. Rochester served up pieces of an Oreo Fudge Brownie cake from Cold Stone Creamery (another one of my absolute favorite places). He did a fantastic job choosing the cake. All in all, it was a wonderful day.
