With our penguin cake topper, made by Jeff's grandma, our Jordan almond/satin flower centerpiece made by my mom's cousin Sharon, Bride Belle and Groom Snoopy, the beautiful anniversary card made by my mom, and our pretty anniversary cake all done up in peach icing, which was our wedding color, in case you couldn't tell!
Whew, we made it - June 16, 1984 marked the beginning of our journey together, and tonight we celebrated 25 years! And what made it all the more fun was that my maid of honor, Barbara, was here to celebrate and reminisce with us! We cooked a nice dinner - pork tenderloin, thin, tender asparagus, roasted red potatoes w/herbs, and a mango/orange pepper/avocado/cilantro chutney (made by Barbara - so good!). Theresa, Barbara's daughter was also with us - we ate well and then had the lovely cake - chocolate with chocolate mousse filling. Can you believe that cake was supposed to serve six? Needless to say, there was a lot leftover...but YUM, it was tasty!
Jeff gave me a cute dangly pair of sterling silver heart earrings, and I gave him a silver Camelbak water bottle and holder for his bicycle. Casual are we! Actually, we were given a very generous check from my parents - and we are planning a trip to Hawaii (!!!) this Fall. Can.not.wait.
Obviously from my lack of posts, I've been busy with Barbara and Theresa. We are having a blast - shopping, taking in some local culture, cooking from the Hungry Girl books and of course, taking lots of pictures! I've managed to keep up with my workouts and also fit in the medical tests and doctor appointments - plus had six vials of blood taken today. My ultrasound is scheduled for Friday morning and hopefully I will have a diagnosis on Monday. So far, no additional attacks - crossing my fingers that it stays that way!
I'm looking forward to catching up on all y'alls blogs this weekend - hope everyone is doing well!
