14 Years of Marital Bliss - Renewal of Vows and Giveaway Winners

Happy Monday and Happy Halloween my friends! Are you ready for your Trick or Treaters tonight?  I am going to leave work a few minutes early so I can get home and be ready for the early birds!  I can't wait to see all of the cute and adorable costumes! :) 

Anyway, this past weekend my husband and I celebrated our 14 year wedding anniversary.  We went up to Fayetteville and spent the night with his mom and her husband and then got up on Saturday morning and headed for Eureka Springs.  We went to an old-timey photograph place and renewed our vows while dressed up in "costumes".  When my husband and I got married in the church all of those years ago, we completely forgot about taking wedding pictures afterwards - duh!  We have wedding pictures but not of just us with him in his suit and me in my wedding dress.  So he has been wanting to do this for such a long time so we could have an actual wedding photo.  We had a great time and the place we went (Judge Roy Bean's) in Eureka was a great experience! Here are some of the pictures taken by my in-laws and daughter during the ceremony with my camera.  They didn't all turn out real good - but you can get the "gist" of things.  I will scan and upload the "real" pictures that the place took of us during the ceremony another day.  I hope you enjoy seeing them:
As you can see, I've gained a lot of weight back and I am starting fresh today to get myself back on track.  It is just ridiculous that I've let myself go so much and I feel so bad about myself being so lazy!  Anyway, that's another story for another day - LOL

Okay - so on to the winners of the Shutterfly cards giveaway!  Since there were only 3 of you who entered - it made it easy to choose because you ALL 3 won! WOO HOO!!! Shoot me an email so I can send you your codes for your free cards! :)  FrouFrou Britches, Jennifer at Home Matters and Petty Witter were the winners.

Well, that's all for now.  Hope you have an awesome day and a safe and happy Halloween!  Thanks for stopping by to say hello.  :o)

Lots of love and hugs,


  1. How beautiful you look and I mean that from the bottom of my heart. Such precious memories, I wish I took such a good photograph.

    So delighted that I won the cards, Hd sent you an e-mail as I haven't been too well.

  2. WOO HOO! Yay for me! I'mm so excited!!!

    Happy, Happy Anniversary!!! I love Eureka. I haven't been to Judge Roy Bean's in forever. Those pictures are really pretty. I thought they just did like saloon girl and cowboy pictures. You look beautiful!!! Glad y'all finally got your pictures done.


Sweet Love From My Friends
