Pottery & Willow

Look at me posting twice in one month! I know its shocking! To top off the shock and awe, I am posting my ninth anniversary present only one day after my anniversary. Happy Anniversary to me!


Throw and DVD

For the past nine years I have given Trevor only gifts from the "traditional" list of anniversary presents.  There might be a year in upcoming years that I am unable to give him from this list and have to cross over to the modern gifts, but I would love to stick with the traditional list if I can.  On the traditional list some years there are multiple presents  to give.  Most years I have only given one or the other, our fourth anniversary was the only other time in which I gave him both fruit and flowers.

Instead of giving him something made from Willow wood (which by the way, what is made of Willow wood?) and a potted plant, he got the DVD Willow and the manliest throw one could find from PotteryBarn.  There was a slight problem with wrapping up Willow and giving it to him though, this being the fact that we already owned the movie.  Tell me how crappy of a wife would I be if I wrapped up something we already owned and tried to pass it off as a new gift???  So I didn't wrap up the movie and we turned the night into a stay at home date.

In true coordinating fashion I made a themed dinner for our movie watching pleasure.  In this house we watch Willow while eating miniature burgers and miniature pizza, with a side of littl' smokies and a dessert with miniature cheesecakes.  I know, I know, I should have made miniature Brownies instead. 

It was a perfect night with my man cuddled up on the couch in his new throw watching a movie.  Until next year...

Hopefully that won't be my next post!

I thought I was bad when I was pregnant about updating this little blog of mine...little did I know!!!  Here we go again with another update on updates, I still haven't post my Eighth Anniversary present.  After looking at the most traffic I get from Pinterest my anniversary present ideas get the most hits. So with my ninth anniversary only six days away...


Bronzer, with a trip to the Beach

I have decided that there is no better feeling than being pregnant in a bikini, no need to suck in! I was seven months pregnant with Graham when I decided this was the best time to take a six hour road trip to the beach (not the best idea I've ever had).  

A few days before our anniversary I wrapped up this bottle of bronzing tanning oil and gave it to Trevor and told him not to make any plans for the upcoming weekend because we were off to the beach! So, did he use the oil? As a matter of's still sealed and in our bathroom closet, apparently he doesn't like the George Hamilton look!

Texas beaches aren't the best, but they do for a little weekend get away with the hounds and our first "vacation" as a family of three.

Even though it was an overcast weekend these two didn't care, as always water is there favorite place to be.  

All and all looking back on this trip a year later it was a prefect anniversary get away equipped with dogs running into crashing waves, sand everywhere, and sunburns with tan lines I still have!
