Riley and 1925!

I adore the Love Elsie Riley line so much! Thanks to Lizee for the paper and Dani for picking up all of the other cool Riley embellishments for me! Here are 6 pages from the album I started for Dan while I was on the retreat. More pages will be coming soon. It was a hit with Dan!

Dan got incredibly bored at my house on Monday night and he surprised me completely when he made this anniversary card for me! It was so fun watching him use my stuff! I'm totally going to lift the paint splotches he made. Just dab a little paint and then drag it out with a needle.

I met Dan after work and we drove to Palo Alto to celebrate our anniversary. We had a wonderful time at the Palo Alto Creamery. They were established in 1925. Dan got his favorite cherry coke and we had a good old time. Here is the board that cracks us up every time we go there.

I adore the coat hangers they have at each booth. You can see one in the back right part of the picture with Dan in it. I adore diners!

I broke out that necklace I made since I forget to wear my own jewelry so much!

After dinner we took a leisurely stroll and went to the Stanford Theater. It was Dan's first time and I was so excited to introduce him to such an experience. The theater opened in 1925. Yes, we had a theme for the night! We saw a wonderful movie with Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert called It Happened One Night. I laughed so hard. If you get a chance to find this movie from 1934 I highly recommend it!

The bathroom walls are so beautiful in the theater I had to take a photo. This is not the first time I've been caught taking photos in a bathroom.

The beautiful stairs up to the balcony level of the theater. The details all over amaze me! We definitely plan to go back more frequently.
