WIWW – 26th Wedding Anniversary

On Thursday, August 11th, hubby and I celebrated our 26th Wedding Anniversary. I feel so blessed to be with a man who loves, respects and still excites me.


Years ago we purchased a Marriott Timeshare in Orlando and as a family we would spend our Anniversary week there. However, now that the boys or should I say, “mini men” are older and are actively working it’s hard for each of us to coordinate and schedule a week off.



We also sold the Marriott Timeshare to Lifestyles Holidays Vacation Resort so hopefully, we will head back to the DR (Dominican Republic) before the end of the year. We had a great time last year, remember this post

Anywho, hubby and I now like to have quiet dinners together and this year he made reservations at Eclipse Bistro in Wilmington. I decided to take the day off as I had an appointment with my son earlier in the day and then a scheduled mani and pedi at Sunlight Salon.

I wore this top with a pair of capri pants and just now remembered that it was exactly what I wore when we flew to the Dominican Republic last June!

I didn’t wear these sandals, but fell in love with when I saw them at the Rainbow Shops. I actually purchased a second pair in my favorite color combination black and white.

Our dinner reservations were at 7:00 so I had plenty of time to relax before heading out and this is what we decided to wear.

clothes from Burlington Coat Factory

Both hubby and I wore “Burlington Coat Factory” He found this and two other sports jackets on clearance for only $19.99 each and my dress was also on clearance for only $14.99 #winning  BTW – it’s machine washable on delicate!!!!

Dinner and the service at Eclipse Bistro was amazing and if you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you would have seen some of the delicious foodie pics.
