20th Anniversary!


We're home after a gorgeous week in Gulf Shores, Alabama.  It is our first time going there on vacation and we had a wonderful week with the boys and my mum.  We got home very early Saturday morning and after getting the house back together, I had some time to play!  Since we just celebrated our 20th anniversary, I thought it would be fun to share pictures from our night out and play along with the Verve Anniversary Challenge.  The top four photos are from where we had dinner together on the night before our actual anniversary.  Since my mum was with us, we were able to have a wonderful dinner at the Grand Hotel in Mobile, Alabama. (Thanks for a fabulous recommendation Katie!)  The views from our table were gorgeous and we got to watch the sun set as we had dinner.  It was raining a bit during dinner, but thankfully it cleared up after dinner and we took a few pictures after dinner.  


On our actual anniversary, we all went out together...and yes here we are dancing on a table!  We went out with the whole family and the DJ was recognizing people with birthdays, etc.  The boys were very quick to tell our waiter that it was our 20th anniversary...so of course, we had to dance on a table!  Definitely something the boys got a huge kick out off!  I think the last time I danced on a table may have been 20 years ago at my bachelorette party.
And last but not least an anniversary card!  I stamped the Verve Plain Jane medallion image and then embossed it with white/silver embossing powder, added a banner with the Verve sentiment...a few silver gems and the deep gray ribbon! Hope you like it...have a fabulous Sunday!
PS  The album for Pat was a big surprise...he loved it ;)
