First of all, I wanted to thank you all...  
...for your lovely anniversary wishes in the post below. :) Mark & I appreciated them so much!! :)

We had an amazing anniversary!! We spent the day together on Saturday getting our gifts to each other "finalized." :)

I'd gotten him an iPhone (because nothing says love to Mark like a gift from the Apple Store!) :) and we spent Saturday at the Apple Store getting it activated. :) He absolutely loved it because it was never something that he would think to buy on his own, yet now that he has it, he can't imagine how he lived without it. :)

I'm not a jewelry person at all, and Mark knows I'm pretty simple when it comes to jewelry and I told him when we first got my engagement ring that I would never want to upgrade my diamond because it had sentimental value to me. He knew this and he also knew that I'd been toying with the idea of getting my diamond re-mounted in a different setting, so he was a sweetheart and got me that for our anniversary gift!! :)

We went to Ben Bridge (after the Apple Store) and looked for my new setting. :) I found one that I absolutely adored - it was simple and elegant, but cute too. Mark agreed that it looked like something I would like. Thankfully it was pretty reasonable and we went ahead and gave my old engagement ring back to them so that they could re-set it. It'll be ready on Wednesday - and I'm VERY excited! :)

Due to a bank function that I felt obligated to attend, we weren't able to do our anniversary dinner just yet. But we will,... next weekend we're going to Assagio's (which is a GREAT Italian restaurant here) and we're going to have a feast! :)

Mark just loves his new 16GB iPhone! :) Here he is standing outside
the Apple Store in Ala Moana shortly after the phone was activated. :)

I don't have a photo yet of my new setting, but I wanted to post
a photo of my old one... Please excuse how dirty it is and my
NON-model fingers. I'll post a photo of the new setting after
Mark picks it up on Wednesday. :)

Thanks again to all for the lovely anniversary wishes!! Big HUGS to you all!! I will be back with another Food / Photo Post a little later of our bank event at the VERY luxurious and VERY expensive Chef Mavro. YUM! Hope you all had a lovely weekend!!
