Shopaholic in Alabama

Sixteen Years and Counting...

Happy Monday, Shopaholics! Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

On October 22, 1994 my life changed forever. DH and I were married in a traditional ceremony in Mobile, AL. We celebrated our reception at the Richards DAR House in downtown Mobile and honeymooned on a cruise. Cute, huh? The above photo was taken at our wedding reception. My scanner isn't working, so I had to take a photo of a photo - hence the bad picture quality. I wish you could see it better.

Last Friday we celebrated our 16th anniversary, which began with this delivery...

Did you notice the sand dollars attached to the red ribbon? What else could you expect from a florist named "Flowers By The Shore"? :-)

We spent the entire afternoon at the beach, enjoying a nice relaxing afternoon and talking for hours. Amazing to me how time flies, some things change...but thankfully others stay the same. I am blessed with a DH who also loves the beach!

After the beach we went out to dinner at Louisiana Lagniappe, a local restaurant that offers some of the area's best seafood and steak. When our server heard it was our anniversary, she brought us complimentary glasses of champagne. How sweet was that?

My sister and her DH was child-free for the evening - so they joined us. This contributed to a shall we say "festive atmosphere" in which more wine was consumed than originally planned...
Our evening ended with a late night game of Lilly Monopoly. We're pretty sure my sister won, but couldn't verify because "someone" mixed the game and money allllll up because they were ready for it to be ovah. :-)


In closing, I have to say I feel very lucky to be married to such a wonderful DH AND have family close to celebrate with us. Hope your weekend was fabulous!
