Weekly Words Challenge

I was thinking I would skip this week's challenge since we are going to be at the beach and me without my internet i.v. I KNOW!

But then tonight (I'm writing this Wed, and with the amazing power of blogspot I am able to travel to the future and post this) my amazingly sweet hubby of 14 years presented me with my anniversary present. The *traditional gift for 14 years is ivory, as in the tusk of an elephant. Apparently that traditional list is very old. Like from way back when it was LEGAL to kill an elephant in order to make jewelry.

Hubby's gift was way more original than plain old elephant ivory though. He found someplace where he could get Mammoth Ivory. Of course I was very excited about my lovely present. And when I saw the tag I immediately thought, that's my all in one picture for this week's word challenge. Intervention, who?

Here it is, my best entry EVAH!
The words for this week are AGE and BEAUTY.

Who knew the mammoth's were out partying in such cute jewelry?

Check out that tag up close. 10,000 years in the making.
Now that's AGE and BEAUTY right there, homebloys!

To check out other pictures drop by Tink's place and say hi.

*Just in case you were wondering, the modern gift is whoppers and magazines to read on vacation. Which is what hubby got along with a few bars of ivory soap for good measure. And yes I know his gift to me is way better than mine to him. Frankly he always out does me. I'm used to it and don't really try any longer. Um yeah, guess that was obvious.


14 years, woohoo!

very nice. He did out do you...it is the same in our house. Coach always gets me great gifts and does not even want me to buy for him.
Happy 14!

And congrats on 14 years!

I love having cute stuff that is hard to get...then when someone asks about you can say, "Oh, this old thing...it's just rare, ancient mammoth ivory." That feels so good.

Totally cute.

What is it with men and the impossibility of getting them gifts as good as the ones they get you?

Oh, well played, that is beautiful. Congrats on 14 years.

I didn't know anyone played by those anniversary rules anymore! How cool is that!?!

I used a single pic, too!

Oh your hubby did a good job!

I'm very comfortable with the husband outdoing the wife. No problem whatsoever. Congrats!!
