Our 31st wedding anniversary!

 A few weeks ago my hubby and I celebrated our 31st wedding anniversary! We were so busy with our projects with our new home that we decided we were not going to go out to celebrate, but rather enjoy a nice romantic dinner at home. We took a little spin on the quad around our property that afternoon, which was so much fun!
 I set the table in our dining room.
 I didn't have time to plan anything super exciting for our table setting. I used Eric's grandmother's china with pretty red wine goblets.
Eric's great-grandmother made this amazing quilt that we are using for our tablecloth.
I recently found this vintage wedding topper at a thrift store and I thought it would be a perfect centerpiece for our anniversary dinner!
 These fun wooden napkin holders should give you a clue as to what I made for our dinner..... guessed it....LOBSTER!!!! This is the first time I made it and it turned out perfect! I bought them on sale at the market and the butcher told me how to prepare them. You cut their shells across the top with scissors and remove the meat, but then place it back in the shell. You place them in about an inch of water in a 13x9 casserole dish and place in the oven at 350 for about 30 minutes.
 I also made corn on the cob and a delicious green salad with the works!
 Everything turned out so wonderfully!
 The meal was delicious!
The lobster turned out fantastic! We dipped it in garlic butter and it melted in our mouths. I will definitely be making this again.
My hubby's reading his card I gave him. We have much to celebrate and be grateful for!
 The store-bought cheesecake for dessert was perfect!
Who needs to go out for an expensive dinner when you can have all of this? haha. We had a wonderfully romantic evening together.
I love this man so much. I am so thankful to the Lord everyday for giving me Eric.

"But at the beginning of creation God 'made them male and female.' 'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.' So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate." Mark 10:6-9

Hugs, Sharon
