I'm So Lucky!

I want to begin by saying that I'm so lucky to have such a wonderful husband!

I'll start with our anniversary. We headed to Arlington right after he got home from work (8am). We enjoyed Houlihans and Chuys. I was a happy camper. We spent the time in between shopping. I love the fact that he enjoys shopping. When we got home, we ate the top of our wedding cake. Or maybe it was more like a tiny bite of our wedding cake. It was not very yummy!

We are not very traditional people, so we didn't do the traditional paper wedding gift. Anthony got me what we are going call an anniversary ring. It is a band that has one diamond in it. Each year, on our anniversary, he will add a diamond. This is extra specialy because it is something my dad did for my mom and Anthony wanted to do the same. I tried taking a picture, but you couldn't really see the details because of the glare. So I gave up. Anthony wanted to get a ring tattooed on his left ring finger, where his wedding band sits. He is not supposed to wear his ring while at work because of the dangers. I loved the idea of a tattoo. So, Friday night, we headed to the tattoo parlor (or whatever they are called these days) and this is what we came up with:
And two more reasons I'm lucky: 1) He came up to school yesterday and helped me put my new classroom furniture together. 2) He cooked some amazing fajitas for dinner last night!

Aw! I'm not really a tattoo fan but that's really sweet. I love how you are doing your ring too.

Sounds like a wonderful anniversary weekend! I love both ring ideas, both are very special.

Wow that is really neat, I'd love to see pictures of your anniversary band...I'm having trouble conceptualizing how that works adding diamonds every year! But it sounds fabulous!
