Weekend Recap - Almost Anniversary

It started with some of this...

Robert Young Estate 2005 Scion, Cabernet Sauvignon -- picked up on our trip to Sonoma


Then moved on to some of these....




While our 1st wedding anniversary isn't for another 2 weeks, this was the only weekend of the month we didn't have any other plans on the calendar.  We started out celebrating Friday night by toasting with our Sonoma County wine and a pot full of steamers (mm mmm).  

Saturday we had dinner reservations at a fancy suburban Inn and was just perfect for the occasion.  The setting was almost private, which seems to be hard to find in any restaurant nowadays and the food was amazing (potato crusted salmon, drool).  It was even more amazing when my husband surprised me with my anniversary gift early.


I had been dropping hints for years about how I'd love a pair of diamond studs.  I feel they are the quintessential piece of jewelry that every woman needs.  They are simply classic and go with everything!

Expect to see them frequently...



Hope all you readers had a great weekend! Happy Monday!
