Anniversary Fun

Yesterday was our anniversary so we were able to steal a few hours away by ourselves to celebrate. First up was Architectural Salvage, which is the place to go for any sort of architectural items for a remodel or vintage accenting of your home. You name it, they have it! Old wooden framed windows, glass doorknobs, key plates, chandeliers, lights, all sizes and sorts of metal letters, and more! I really wanted to find some use for the old porcelain pink sink that I saw, but hubby wasn't having it! LOL! Maybe at the ten-year mark......

The Cantina located in the building behind the Architectural Salvage had the most amazing murals painted on its outside walls...

Then it was off to dinner at this fabulous place....Cucina Urbana. This is our second attempt at getting a reservation before 9 pm as it is a very popular place to dine! Let me just tell you...and I am NOT exaggerating here...the decor is like you are eating dinner inside an Anthropologie!! Here was the chandelier near our table...

And a display behind the greeters...

I wanted to take way more pictures of the inside, but I didn't think the people dining by all of the other displays and under the amazing painting would have liked me leaning over their table with my iphone! Food was fabulous and they are opening a new location this coming fall in the Irvine Spectrum area. You will looooove it!! Check it out....
