It's amazing to think we've already reached a year of wedded bliss! Kelly and I enjoyed celebrating our first anniversary last Saturday and on Monday (the actual day).
On Sat. we dressed up and went to Cappos, a favorite restaurant, styled after an italian speakeasy. Kelly got to debut his new, blue three piece suit that I found at Savers for $13. (He looked amazing!) And I wore another Savers find-- with my anniversary present-- an antique pocket watch, embossed with a little bird. It's beautiful! It was a perfect pick to compliment the pocketwatch that I gave Kelly for our wedding last year.
I tried to get a good picture of Kelly in his suit. This one, taken while I was trying to rig up the camera for a timed shot of the two of us, is the only one he approves of! (Can you see the pocketwatch chain? --His favorite part about the suit is the pocketwatch pocket!)
On Monday, Kelly brought me flowers to work-- not knowing I was just about to leave to work on HIS anniversary gift. The flowers were gorgeous, with orchids that matched our wedding and bird of paradise-- one of his favorites!
Right after Kelly left, I retrieved my flowers and left too. I set-up our table with details from our wedding and reception-- lots of yellow.
The little present in Kelly's bowl was cuff links to match his pocketwatch (and of course, a french cuff shirt to wear them with).
Our dinner at home was better than eating out, if I do say so myself. We had butternut-pumpkin bisque with garlic-rosemary toasted baguette, salmon with a honey-pecan glaze and roasted brussel sprouts with ice cream and fresh raspberry sauce for dessert. I highly recommend all the recipes.
It was a wonderful anniversary. We're looking forward to the next one--- or maybe we won't wait for an excuse to celebrate!

The Coat I've Always Wanted
Call me a tory, but I've always wanted a red coat.
The fact that this one is on sale right now makes me weak in the knees. It's also available in the yellow of my wedding-- but you just can't beat a red coat.

Yes, I'll Marry You!!
Kelly just discovered Facebook and I received the following email*:
"We need to confirm that you are, in fact, married"?! Seems rather presumptuous of the folks at Facebook!
Yes, I would like to add Kelly as my spouse! I'm pretty sure I did that. --About a year ago!
*These pictures look great and crisp until I insert them. Any idea why?

Blackboard Stroke of Brilliance
I had a good ORIGINAL idea last week, and today I logged onto my google reader only to discover that three other people almost had my idea too.
I am writing this post to share (and claim) my idea, which is this: I'm going to hang a large, framed blackboard above my living room sofa.
Similar ideas were posted today by:
who bought her blackboard from Bluebell Bazaar.
. . . But none of them have hung their blackboard as a work of art.
In the living room.
It's going to look great!
