Happy 5th Anniversary!


Our yummy deserts from ROY'S!!!
So yesterday, October 3rd was our 5 year anniversary; wow where does the time go.  We went to an awesome restaurant called Roy's in La Jolla and then went and saw Ghost Town (which was hilarious).  It was very hard leaving Noah but I knew he was in good hands, thank you mom.  I am so grateful for my husband, he is truly my best friend.  I have been waiting to post the first thing I have ever made.  Ever since we were married I always had the idea to use my bridesmaid skirts to create a quilt w/various pic's.  After 5 years I finally did it.  I didn't think I would be the one making it but I am glad my friend made me do it all, with her direction of course.  It was that more special knowing that I made this quilt for Dan all on my own!  I had finished it a couple months ago so it was very hard not giving it to him right away.  So here are some pic's of the quilt I made, it's not perfect but I am very happy in how it turned out.
The 4 different shades of the shiny material (raw silk) were my bridesmaid skirts.
