Thanks Karen and FM,
Yes, Karen, Happy Anniversary! There is actually a story to the bride and groom topper. The bride is brunette and the the groom is Asian and she wanted the topper to reflect that. So, I go hunting on the internet looking for interchangeable brides and grooms. I find them and order them and when they arrive, they looked really similar to the REAL bride and groom. It was amazing! People thought that they were one of a kind made just for them!

We are going out for dinner, but I have an old-fashioned oatmeal cake in the oven - hubby's favorite. Sure does smell good.

Oatmeal cake? Like a lazy daisy cake?

My Lazy Daisy cake doesn't have oatmeal, it is basically a white cake made with hot milk. If there is an oatmeal version I would love the recipe.

DC friends - thanks for your anniversary wishes. This is only our third anniversary - took us awhile to find each other! We had a lovely dinner at a beach side restaurant and watched the beautiful sunset over the bay. I had a delicious salad made up of avocado halves stuffed with huge fresh shrimp in a chipotle mayo dressing. Greens on the side were dressed with a cilantro-lime vinigarette (sp?) Hubby had grilled salmon served with lobster mashed potatoes - I tasted them; they were wonderful. Came home and had oatmeal cake - perfect day. I feel very blessed. PS- there is now a link to the oatmeal cake recipe in the original post.

Yes, this one is similar to the recipe I learned from my Mom (though of course not microwave ). I was just curious because oatmeal was mentioned.
