Coming Up On 15 Years...

Hubby and I will be celebrating 15 years on February 3rd. Here's a list of gifts that coorespond to the year. Not ones to follow rules, we'll probably do our own thing.
Neither of us has a need for crystal or a watch. I have been dropping hints about a necklace by Slane Jewelers, which is $4,300.00, and not worth more than $300.00 in my opinion, but Jewelry designer extrordinaire, Kate Szabone can make it in 18 kt gold for $625.00 hmmm...Not sure what to get hubby (maybe a tent and a trip to Portland??).
