A Fun Surprise and Oh How Pinteresting Wednesday!

Good morning, friends and Happy Hump Day!

Did everyone have a great Valentine's Day?? I sure did! 

So M and I never give presents for Valentine's Day anymore. We decided about 4 years ago that cards were sufficient. So obviously I thought this year was no different. I even MADE my card this year since that would be the only gift I'd be giving to him. I cleverly cut out little pictures of our heads and pasted them on a picture of a train to make it look like we were riding a "love train." 

I know I know - I am SO funny and creative:)

Well anyway, we get to the steak house last night, order our wine and our entrees and I present M with his silly card. He laughs and I laugh...it was a great time. 
Next thing I know he hands me a card AND a little box wrapped up in sparkly red paper with a red bow. I immediately assume it is chocolates and tell him that he should know better since I'm trying to cut down my sugar intake! I rip open the box and this is what I find...

A gorgeous diamond "S" necklace from Barmakian Jewelers! Is he not the best?? Just when I think I know him so well...BAM!! He surprises me with diamonds! That's the kind of surprise I like!

We ended our night by crossing something off of our wedding "to do list"
We officially booked our flights and hotel for one half of our honeymoon! San Francisco, Napa and Hawaii...here we come!!!
