6 Years And Counting...

Well, @TCSKxoxo...traditionally, it's sugar...

But, around here 'twas a pair of the Orlebar Brown Bulldogs in geometric navy for Babe, and a Simon Pearce Woodbury Flare Vase and roses pour moi...

But, never one to miss an excuse for sugar, I covered that base with a celebratory, post 4 miler breakfast of chocolate croissants...

After indulging my two croissant sugar coma lounging around the pool, coach gave me the option of either tennis or biking...

I opted for the less sweaty, just slip on a cover up bike ride...

Trading in working on my forehand, for working on my no hand...

No such success would've been had on the court...

Since there weren't any jumbo Chester River crabs available from our source for our traditional anniversary dinz, we stuffed our swollen from running, sugar, humidity, and biking piggy's into some real shoes...

Then spent the ride to Ruth's Chris consoling our shocked feet, telling them they'd be back home in the security of their Rainbows before they knew it...

Babe looked as gorgeous as ever...

While I looked as though I had...spent all day in a pool, went bike riding, threw my chlorinated hair in a pony, tossed a dress over my still slathered in sunscreen bod, skipped the makeup and said, I'm ready...

As Babe began making noises about a late night walk while waiting for the check...

It was all I could do to keep from lying my tired head on the table...

But, after 6 years, Babe knows that there's one surefire way to wake me back up and that's, more sugar...

I came in celebrating our "Sugar Anniversary" with chocolate croissants and, I went out with chocolate frozen yogurt...

Kindness of Babe for an amazing 6 years. I am onnne lucky girl to have found you...XXOO

  1. You are so funny. You are self-deprecating, yet you always manage to look great. Even the pony looks sophisticated.

    What a nice anniversary.

    Seems to me you are both blessed to have each other.

  14. Allie, I cannot believe the self-control that you have to keep those fabulous gold shoes tucked away since December! Not meaning to sound like a broken record, but you do look fabulous - love the dress (I thought it was CKB too) - and happy happy anniversary.
    (Is Babe wearing hot pink polka dot shorts in the bike shot - love them too!)

  21. Hey Miss Alice,

    You sure do clean up real nice! You even have on the 'Parisian ruby slippers'. You look wonderful. Happy Anniversary to you both. Just click your heels together and wish for 70 more years, at least. Have you done a post on your bike? What are all the attachments?

    Warmest regards, Kathleen

  26. Adding my wishes for a happy anniversary. May you share very many more years of happiness with one another. And I might add, you look lovely in your cover up as well as your night out on the town, sans makeup, no less! Not everyone can pull that off.

  29. One more thing - what's that lil' clutchy purse you've got goin' on? I am inthemarket for a new metallic clutch. My thoughts are incessantly interrupted by HRH Kate carrying the Jimmy Choo Ubai in champagne/platinum, but it's just not quite my style. Details of your handbag would be most appreciated!
