Sweets and Iron

 I found that quote and it not only perfectly describes my life, but our marriage, us personally, name it....that quote seems to hit the nail on the head! Ok, now remember that!!!!
 We don't set out to do "Traditional" Anniv gifts but I did this year! Sweets and Iron! Matt LOVES him some I would say he is stocked for a little bit! He loved it and I love seeing him digging around in his basket!
 Here is the card I gave him with a clue to whats next..........
This is his cutest "pouting" face since we got stuck in traffic and for 50minutes he had no idea where we were going! HA, I loved it!
 Yes, your eyes DO not deceive you!!!! There is actually traces of "Iron Oxide" in black tattoo ink hence the "IRON"! I know....I KNOW!!!!! Ya, can you tell I am proud of this one? I researched for weeks to find the best place (Sweet Baby Octane) and since Matt already has quite a few I in no way thought he would refuse! (He didn't)...the kicker???? I got one too! EEK! Me, the girl who has none...but going back to that quote, I thought a TON about this and picked out arrows for us each!
First of all, NO this in no way was like a needle. This wasn't like a needle going into me which is worse, I say! Now I was sick to my stomach/nervous all day Friday at work but whatever! HA! 
The actual Tattooing felt like a burn or one of my dogs scratching me for 15minutes and it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be!
 If you look closely you can see a little fear in my eyes! HA.....Rev. Dice was so nice and the experience was really kinda neat! But no, this did not start anything!
 LOOK!!!!!! Why here? I think it is "stylish" and once the tat t is healed that is also where I wear my watch and all my bracelets each it will fit right in! It did hurt the next day a bit like a burn.

 Matt added his arrow to the bottom of his 1/2 sleeve and he was as happy as could be! I loved it!
 Happy 6 years to us! I love how ours match but not "silly" and they can also stand on their own.
 Here we have it folks! I did it!........... We are both happy! You like???
Saturday we went to have brunch at a favorite place of ours North Star.......and yup, I was on cloud 9 with the cloud 9 pancakes!!!!
 Saturday was Matt's "day" so he surprised me with a mani/pedi after cute is this place??? I loved it! He did good!
 Then.....when I got in the car he handed me this................ I know right? What the?
 And inside was the Tiffany & Co. key necklace.....I love it! It is perfect and I was one lucky duck I would say!!!
 And I couldn't NOT get Halloween nails!!!
 Guys it was a good weekend! Until next year, huh?
