Anthon took me to see New Moon again on Saturday night & it got me thinking. Yes, Jacob's body was admirable and Edward was... Edward, but I couldn't help but think about how happy I am with MY guy! There was a preview before the movie that had a quote I can't get out of my head- "The greatest love story ever told, is your own"- SO TRUE! I love our story & our life together! So, today (tomorrow & forever) I'm thankful for Anthon! He brings joy to my life that no one else can & I wouldn't trade him for anything in the world!

We were in desperate need of some new kitchen chairs (ours pretty much came apart whenever you pulled them out). So, we got 6 of these chairs for free (my favorite price). Were they attractive? No. Did they have potential? Yes! I found this fabric:
Which I LOVE, & here's what they look like now:
"Not a total Betty, but a vast improvement!"
I'm happy with them... for now. Maybe I'll get around to refinishing the wood one day, but what's really important is that we now have safe places to sit while we eat :)

Anthon is AWESOME!! His company started a competition at the beginning of the summer among the technicians- whoever got 50 sales first would win a $2,000 bonus or a cruise with whatever cash was left over from the 2K budget. Anthon's really competitive (& has won EVERY competition his employer has had over the past 2 years), so he set a goal to be the 1st to 50 sales. I'm very proud to say that he got his 50th sale Saturday afternoon!! He's worked so had for this- staying out after finishing his route to go door-to-door, getting up early to sell before doing his route, talking to all our family & friends, & doing whatever he can to reach his goal- I'm SO proud of him!! I don't think he's decided what he's going to take, the $$ or the cruise & whatever $ is left over, but I'm happy with whatever he decides :). He totally deserves it for all his hard work! Anthon is such a great guy- I love his dedication & drive!
