Bon Anniversaire!

Yesterday, Jube and I celebrated because it was our anniversary! Hooray for us!

The best part about anniversaries is that they give us an excuse to go out for dinner. I chose the Mexican restaurant. We were driving into town, ready to turn onto Avenue Gambetta, when he suddenly turned to me and said, "Gem, I really don't want to eat Mexican food. We already went to that restaurant twice, and I don't like those beans they have." This was funny because he had just convinced me that he really wanted me to choose the restaurant, and that he really didn't mind going "a little crazy" at Poco Loco (that's the name of the restaurant, hilarious, eh?).

Instead, we headed to a "creole" restaurant--more specifically, r
éunionnais. I had the porc cocolombo, Jube chose the fricassée de crevettes, and we shared a selection of appetizers. The ironic part of the meal was that it was served with the same beans you get at the Mexican restaurant! We finished with desserts, gâteau aux patates douces for me and tarte coco for Jube. He was pretty jealous of mine, since it was made with rum and didn't actually taste like sweet potatoes at all.

And then, how did we finish off this amazing anniversary? We went home and fell right asleep, because we were really tired. Why so tired? At 5:00 that morning, Jube sat straight up in bed and said, "Oh no, il faut faire mes voeux!" [I have to make my wishes!] Kind of weird, eh? He had to request his job placement for next year, in case he can't come to the US, and they were due on the 13th at 8:00am. Why he couldn't have waited until we woke up at 7:00am to do it, I'm not sure, but he was woken from a deep sleep with the urge to do it at that very second. He did, and we were tired for the rest of the day.
