Our Anniversary!!!

What a great few days...
Today is our 7th anniversary! We just returned from our trip to Valley Forge. We had an incredible dinner at Melting Pot (which is my new favorite restaurant) and lucky us... it is opening in Bethlehem in 2 weeks. Anyway, we had a free champagne toast with our dessert... I couldn't tell you which of the 4 courses was our favorite... they were all incredible. The dinner was our gift to each other...

I was away at the Creating Keepsakes Scrapbooking Convention for the past weekend. I love going there each year and learning new techniques and seeing what the latest and greatest products there are out there. I had a great time. Terry, Jenn and I had a blast cropping in our room on Saturday night. It was my favorite part of the weekend. We made lots of fun plans for next year. I loved our dinners out too!

(Sorry about the blurry pics from my camera phone.)

When I returned home today... I went to a Stampin up party to see Cibele and say goodbye; hopefully not forever. I found out at the party that I won this week's challenge at Scrapping the Music! Whoo hoo! What a great anniversary present!

So, progress on the house... here is what it looked like the day I left for the conference....

Here is what it looked like when I returned. I was in tears! How beautiful!

Look at those windows!
Can you pictures sitting on the couch looking out at those trees... I can!
Looking up at the loft!
View from the road!

Tonight, we went swimming! I missed the kids so much! I hate being away from them for a day and I was away for 4 days! Yuck! I missed them... but we had our hours of hugs and kisses tonight and quality play time.

Tonight, I am grateful for...
