My Anniversary

It is always harder to find time to blog while we are visiting Oklahoma in the summer.  We are always so busy going and doing and visiting.  So I apologize for the lack of posts lately. 

Today is my wedding anniversary with my hubby.  We have been married for 18 years.  We met in the 9th grade in our English class.  Today we went on a "date" for lunch.  We went to eat at a lovely restaurant called the Paseo Grill and were really happy we did.  The food was yummy, the atmosphere was comfortable and the wait staff were solicitous. I had a Cuban sandwich and iced tea. YUM! 

We went to visit my father's grave too since the restaurant was very near the cemetery where he is buried.  He died when I was 16, killed by a drunk driver.  It is so sad because he was only 40 years old when he died. So young.  It was nice to visit and leave flowers.

Afterwards we went for a relaxing drive and then stopped by Home Depot to pick up some tile.  Random day, I know! lol   But it was a nice day and we enjoyed our time alone together.  My brother watched our kids while we were gone.  Thank you David!!

Tomorrow my mother and I are having a "girls day out".  I'm not sure what our exact plans are but I do know they will include stopping by the LSS for the "garage sale" that will be going on!  Fingers crossed they have some fun low priced goodies. 

Here is a photo from last week's birthday party for my hubby

This week's birthday girl - my Mom.

On Sunday, for the 3rd week in a row, we will be hosting family and friends for a birthday party.  My mother's birthday is Sunday.  I'm not sure yet what I will cook yet.  I thought I would ask her tomorrow what she would like me to make.  I know there will be swimming in the pool and cake and ice cream to eat.  I won't know what to do next Sunday when we don't have a birthday party to host! LOL

I made these two cards recently.  One was for my hubby's birthday and the other was just for fun.  They are both super simple and quick. 

Hopefully I will get more scrapping done this weekend to share with you.  Thanks for stopping by to look!!


  1. Happy Anniversary to you and your honey!
    Great you got to spend some time together.
    Two wonderful designs sweetie!

  2. Cute cards Stacy. Happy Aniversary! Beautiful flowers. :o)

  3. Happy Anniversary! Sounds like the perfect day! I took tomorrow off to hike and then to spend the day at a resort... floating down the lazy river! You will be pleased to hear that I just finished up my CCC project! Yippee! Girl have you looked at my vac posting yet? Happy summer!! We are already thinking how fast school will be starting for us! Aug 6! EEEK!
    Your cards are super fun! Oh I watched the Night of the Living Dead Marathon and the talk show after... I cannot wait until October! I am completely obsessed!!

  4. Happy Anniversary Stacy. Glad you had that alone time together. May you have many more anniversaries.

  5. Happy anniversary!! 18 years is such an incredible accomplishment! Your flowers are gorgeous!! And I'm sure having some time alone was just perfect!

    I've never heard the story of your Dad. So sad to hear...I'm so sorry.

    Sounds like a crazy time of the year for you with all the birthdays going on!! My poor daughter is going to be in the same spot in October. Mommy's (mine) Daddy's and boyfriend's (eventually husband, I'm sure) all have our birthdays in the SAME WEEK! Poor thing...she's going to have to start saving every year, just for the cakes alone!! Haha!
