A Little Stay Cay at the Beach

Stay Cay in Santa Monica 9/4/09

The husband and I decided to celebrate our 3 year wedding anniversary by the beach …so, we’re in Santa Monica. Yes, it’s only a 30 minute drive from our house {unless there’s traffic, which there wasn’t} but now we have an ocean view! We just returned from dinner at BOA and are going to take a little walk on the beach. Oh the romance. 😉

We’ll be here all weekend …and most likely be posting photos along the way.

    Happy Anniversary Darling Girl! TMM and I have been together for 13 years. Married in 2000 in front of a judge and then renewed our vows in Vegas in 2005 in the most kitchy chapel ever. We are going to renew every 5 years…primarily so that I can buy a cool dress and fabulous heels. Just kidding (kinda). I adore him and he showers me with love. I’ve already given you the best advice I can in past comments. I’ll try not to be too naughty here. Have a great time, chica!

    I love how you’re all cute and done up, and your hubby is in shorts and a tee. That’s how my hubby is, too. His signature style also includes flip flops. =^) Opposites do attract. Happy Anniversary! Marriage is work, but so worth it. Love that blue bag I see there in the corner, too. Woo-woo.

    I saw you today! You were walking down Ocean with your husband! And you two looked gorgeous. I was driving home after playing house with my boyfriend for the weekend, and I thought, “Oh my god, that girl looks just like Maegan!” And then I saw this post, and saw you were in Santa Monica today, so now I’m sure I had a brief Maegan sighting! Anyways, hope you had a great weekend!
