A weekend catch up {Anniversary}

Hi sweet friends! 
Hope you're having a lovely Sunday! 
It was suppose to rain all day and turned out to be a really nice day, sun and all! :) 
Just been taking it easy, no baby yet....just waiting for his sweet arrival! 

Last weekend was our anniversary 4 years married on the 4th and 11 years together on the 6th. We had a great weekend together! The traditional gift for 4 years married is "flowers and fruit" and modern day is appliances, which we got for our new house! :) 
 I decided to make these strawberry brownie kabobs, which were really a tasty treat!!
They were pretty easy you just get fresh strawberries, marshmallows, melting chocolate to drizzle and a brownie mix. 
 Although I thought they would be so cute as mini muffin shapes, but trying to guess the time of how long to cook them and then getting them out was another story! So after the first batch of minis I decided to just go with a glass square dish for the rest of the mix. That seemed to work fine....just wait until they cool and cut them into squares :) 

I also made a yummy fruit salad, I just found a simple recipe online.

 Luke got me pretty flowers .....

So I wasn't going to get Luke a flower bouquet....so I thought I'd make one of my own with a twist!
It was a 'fishing' bouquet! Lol 
 I attached some fun new lures and things

 and got him a cute fishing hat too!!

Gummy worms and Swedish fish in jars with labels that said 
"hooked on you since June 4th 2004"

And then I also made this deck of cards too! ~which was in my last post! 

Hope you all have a wonderful rest of the day, thank you all so much for being sooooo SWEET!! Your comments just melt my heart! 

Wishing you the best!

52 Things I love about you... card deck DIY

Happy weekend!! 
Hope you all are doing well! I've been trying to catch up on visiting some of your blogs today. Sorry I've been so quite over here! We've been so busy getting the final touches ready for our baby and busy getting some house plans done. We started clearing out trees and lots of branches for our drive way. We are just so excited for both! 

I wanted to share this little deck of cards I made for Luke, as one of our anniversary gifts! {Our anniversary was the 4th ~married 4 years, and today marks 11 years together!} 
Ok, here it is!

 I found online this printable of blank red and black rectangles, 
printed it out and wrote out 52 reasons on each one.
I just used a scrapbook taper~instead of glueing each one.
Punched two holes on each card and tied it up with some ribbon. 
I think it came out cute! 
He thought it was sweet too! :) :) 

Hope you have a lovely weekend!! 
We are suppose to be getting our driveway 'cut in' tomorrow, hoping we can get it done before the rain comes!! ~Fingers crossed!! :) 

{{{Baby news}}}
This coming Tuesday (the 9th) I will be 39 weeks.... one more week to go.... or he could come anytime/ any day now! :)  And I'm ready when he is!

Thanks so much for visiting!!
