Ok so my grandparents' 50th wedding anniverdary was this past Friday, and we threw a surprise party for them on Saturday. They were so surprised it was hilarious! We sent them on a mini roadtrip down memory lane, while we cleaned the house and set up everything.
One of the things my aunt really wanted to do for them was to re-take a picture of the 7 of them they had taken like 20 years ago. So we snuck out Friday night to take it with the 7 siblings. And it turned out great! I got some great snapshots of candid moments.
Everybody is gettin in position ;)
Lani was trying to keep baby Selleck happy while Matt positioned everything, but the poor thing had sun in his eyes ;)
I think they look awesome! And my grandparents loved the gift! There were tears and lots of hugs, we had such a great time and it was great to see my Bowler family! I can't wait to get together with them again! ;)
Thanks to my friend Perla, Andrew and I now have some really nice pictures of us to hang around our house ;)
We did a swap: blog "design" for pictures ;) So check her two blogs out here and here and see my handywork ;) Here are just a few of my favorites:
Yeah so we live in an apartment so we can't really remodel, but we can redecorate! So we did ;) Andrew came home one day and said, "I wanna move things around. It doesn't feel like us yet." So last night after my family left, we took things off the walls and started over ;)
Here's the end result:
This wall used to have all the Disney/Broadway frames
Moved the Disney lithographs around
The Wall-E pictures are in a kind of alcove that was empty before
The pictures are in the order in which I saw the shows ;) (I haven't seen RENT yet but it's on the list)
We put the leaf in the table to we could use more of it when people come over
Our movie collection (we need nother bookshelf cuz we're running out of room)
I just HAD to share with you guys cuz I'm super excited about it! It feels much more homey, and like us ;) Andrew has also promised that I can get more frames to put ALL my Disney lithographs up around the apartment ;)
So after work on Wednesday, Andrew decided he wanted to have a romantic dinner for us.
Isn't he the cutest thing ever!? So after setting off the smoke detector once, we sat down, turned on our fake candles, and feasted on manicotti stuffed with chicken and a creamcheese/diced tomatoes/onions sauce topped with cheese ;)
Can my man cook or what!?
It was an amazing thing that we could stay up til 11 talking, eating, and just knowing how much we love each other.
How did you spend your night?? ;)
Here you will find love, magic, bookworm favorites, Disney tips, and a family on their journey to Happy Ever After!
