My husband and I celebrated our nine year wedding anniversary earlier this month (ten-four, to be exact). Okay, saying we “celebrated” it might be an exaggeration; not because it wasn’t something to celebrate, but because I flew home from Vegas that evening pretty late. I actually walked in the door at 11:58pm, so I did … Continue reading 9 Year Anniversary Traditional and Modern Gifts
For our seventh anniversary this weekend, my husband and I took our 15-month old to Fredericksburg, Texas. We celebrated Oktoberfest, hiked Enchanted Rock (we didn’t get very far- my daughter pricked her finger on a cactus), and took in some fresh air at Pedernales Falls. It was a beautiful weekend, and I’d recommend the Texas … Continue reading Weekend Getaway
Last week my husband and I celebrated our fifth anniversary. We’ve been doing pretty well with our traditional gifts, except this year the traditional gift is…wood. Yeah.

I recently came across two really fun ideas for champagne at a bachelorette party. The first is a Moet & Chandon rose champagne gift set. It includes a chic pink bottle with … Continue reading Bachelorette Bubbly
When choosing a wedding date, some people are very particular about the number on the calendar. This year it is 10-11-12 (today!) that has us booked with elopements! The next one we have is tonight at 7:30pm in the garden. What would be your ideal wedding date? My husband and I went with 10/4, because … Continue reading 10-11-12 Elopements
Fourth anniversary. Traditional gift: fruit or flowers. Modern gift: appliance. As if this wasn’t tricky enough, my husband suggested we make something for each other this year, rather than buying gifts. This really foils my plan to drop hints about the ipad I want. I mean, that’s an appliance, right? So what should I make … Continue reading Fourth Anniversary Fruit Face
My husband and I took a little “staycation” this weekend in Houston. We saw Annie at the theater, ate at some of our favorite restaurants, and checked out the King Tut exhibit. The obligatory shopping trip at the Galleria led us to browsing at Tiffany & Co. (key word here is browsing!). My husband actually … Continue reading Adventures at Tiffany’s
