some FUN and exciting things to share...

First of all, I am SUPER excited to announce that I have been asked to co-host the Take It From Me's very popular, Welcome Wednesday blog hop!  I have participated in their hop for over a year now, met some great fellow bloggers and learned some great tools for making blogging a success!  I will definitely keep you posted on this exciting journey for BOTH of my blogs!  Woohoo!
If you haven't checked it out, go here ,link up and hop around!!



As for our Anniversary dinner at Eddy V's...it was PERFECT!  Thanks to my aunt for suggesting this restaurant.  It was elegant, delicious and SO perfect for celebrating my birthday and our anniversary!  For our meal, I had the Fuji Apple Salad, Sea bass with lemon and garlic!  And since it was a special occasion, we splurged on coffee and dessert!  Yum!  This was our table when we arrived...


And look who's back home??!  Dixie!  She is a yellow lab, almost 10 years old.  She was a gift to my hubby, when we were dating, for his birthday!  She's a sweet dog and has adjusted pretty well so far!


...and here's our house!  
We are very excited and happy to be moved and almost settled in!


One of the highlights of the house for the boys is this TUB! 
 Ha!  They think it's hilarious to turn up the bubbles and go crazy!  Silly boys :-)


My newly created, "M" wall!  What do ya think?  Totally inspired by Pinterest, of course!


and finally our restored breakfast table by Robin @ Restored Designs!  She does amazing work!  
She lives near our new house, so I'm happy to call her my new neighbor and friend. 
 She might have that perfect piece just for you too, so be sure and check it out HERE!

How awesome that your table said Happy Anniversary. What a special little touch. I'm glad you all had a nice celebration!

Your new home looks amazing!! I bet you all are so excited to be getting settled in. Looks like the boys are adapting well. I'd be over the moon happy in one of those fantastic tubs too :)

Have a good day!
