John and I had our 30th wedding anniversary on the 26th, and we had a wonderful time. The kids decided to make us dinner instead of giving us money to go out, and it was the sweetest thing. Melissa couldn't be here, but she helped to pay for it, and Chris and Sio cooked. They made steak, lobster tails, baked potatoes and Sio found a recipe for really delicious cornbread. It really was a wonderful dinner and I think we have really thoughtful kids. They know what we like, and dinner cooked for us is so much nicer than going out.
John and I went to the casino for our own little celebration, I broke even and he lost $60. It was a lot of fun, too, and we haven't been in months and months, maybe even a year. But for me the best part was the gift I got from John. After losing my wedding ring and being without for years, he bought me a new one. It is the greatest gift, ever! He also bought me a watch, which is something I wanted and was going to eventually buy my self. I bought him dual channel memory for his computer, which is ok, but not nearly as nice as what I got.
I also did a little more sewing, I made this top from hand dyed hemp and a pretty cotton print I got at work and listed it in my Etsy store. It's made from a vintage pattern from 1973 that I got on E-bay. I owned a copy of this pattern back in 1973, I guess it goes to show that things go in and out of fashion all the time.
I sold the elephant bag, but the dress didn't sell so it's now in my Etsy store.
