Date Night at Chatham Bars Inn

When we were on vacation, my mom treated us to a gift card to the Chatham Bars Inn for our anniversary! Chatham Bars Inn is a resort hotel in Chatham.  

 It is stately, and beautiful! It was built in 1914 and represents old Cape Cod. With it’s traditional coastal decor and timeless feel, it is a must-see. We usually go every year for brunch, and we did again this year. I have never been for dinner so I was excited to try it. We opted to eat outside, either at their Veranda dining room, a dining area on the front porch of the Inn, or at The Beach House, a bar/restaurant down by the ocean and pool. We put our names in at the Veranda, and headed down by the beach for some drinks. 

    
    
    
    

  
The beach bar and the beach area are beautiful and fun! There was live music, people everywhere enjoying food and drinks, and it was a fun, vacation vibe.  There are fire pits, cabanas, and everything you need for a beach day. We walked around and enjoyed the gorgeous views.  Then it was time for our meal, so we headed back up to the Inn. 

   The Veranda overlooks the ocean, and serves small plates and light fare.  Since we wanted to eat outside, we knew this was a good choice.   

  

  

 The views were breathtaking- the sun was setting, so the whole sky was pink.  We decided to order calamari, and a lobster pizza flatbread.  Both were outstanding!  

  

  

  It was such a nice, laid back way to celebrate our anniversary, and enjoy a night out on the Cape.  There are many other dining options at the Chatham Bars, and I can’t wait to go back next year! 

 

Celebrating our First Wedding Anniversary

 Sunday was our first anniversary!  I can’t believe how incredibly fast this year flew by.  Our first year has been easier than I expected.  Everyone told me to have low expectations and to realize that there will be problems and growing pains.  I was pleasantly surprised, and think our relationship got stronger throughout the year.  I am so lucky to be married to such a wonderful man!


 

   To celebrate our anniversary we spent the whole day together.  It was lovely!  We were going to go out of town, but we have been so busy lately, so we decided to just stay here.  We started our day with our respective workouts- T25 for me, and a run for him.  Then we headed out to the bakery that made our wedding cake.  They have an awesome deal where if you send them some professional pictures from our wedding of the cake, they will make a new cake top for your anniversary for free!  After picking up our cake, we saw the movie Trainwreck, which was hilarious!  I laughed the whole time.  We had dinner downtown at RPM Italian, and totally forgot to take a picture all dressed up!   Afterwards we exchanged gifts, ate our cake, and watched our wedding video.  All in all, a great way to spend our anniversary.  I can’t wait to see where this year takes us!
