Celebrating in Style!

This past weekend my husband surprised me by taking me to the Grand Geneva Resort in Lake Geneva, IL to celebrate our wedding anniversary.  Now if it had been ME planning this, I probably would have booked the local Holiday Inn Express BUT I'm so glad he didn't -- we really experienced two days of living how the 'other half' lives!
 I was trying to figure out who else was staying in this room with us!  There were more t.v.'s here than we have in our entire house including . . .
a t.v. in the mirror of the bathroom.  Does it get any better than HGTV while soaking in the tub??
 And have we ever thought of folding OUR toilet paper like this for our families?
 Champagne and truffles were waiting for us when we came back from dinner the first night.
 While doing some shopping in Lake Geneva on Saturday, we came upon these two ADORABLE little gals selling lemonade and cookies!  Their dad gave me permission to snap their photo and post on my blog (I hope they get a chance to see it!).  This just made me smile -- so refreshing to see little ones enjoying the simple joys of a lemonade stand in today's crazy world!

 We stumbled on a farm with U-Pick strawberries on our way home -- it was a scorching hot day but so much fun to gather these beautiful berries.
It was a beautiful weekend to celebrate 28 years of marriage -- thank you Honey!
I love this man!


  1. Happy Anniversary! Looks like you had a great time. We celebrated our 23rd back in November and went to Savannah for the weekend. It was so much fun!

  2. Such a sweet story!!! Congrats on 28 years!!!

  3. I read some of your post to my hubby...I guess it was 'hint hint'! But I finished by saying...they are a nice looking couple. They look like the go together! Isn't that neat? I'm so glad you had a wonderful special! Enjoy your week!

  4. Wow Lauren, sounds like you and your hubby had a wonderful Anniversary celebration. And how awesome was that room! A very Happy 28th Anniversary to both. You made such a handsome couple.
