Happy Anniversary to Us
Feeling a little frustrated right now. I actually went to the trouble to take pics of my anniversary dinner... downloaded them off the camera... deleted originals from camera card... and lost ALL BUT ONE. I have no idea how this happened... and I won't discuss it any further. I love/hate technology... anyway... had to use some stock photography on this post.
Here we are 29 years ago. I posted this pic in about my third blogpost, but it bears repeating. I look so young... and naive... and clueless. But I think if you entered marriage with both eyes open, you would run every time!
We celebrated Saturday night. We did not get to go to the Coco movie. It only showed on Wednesday, and Scott really did have to work late. By late, I mean 4am! I guess I'll give him a by, and we'll rent it when it comes out.
My daughter thinks we are so lame and boring, but we would much rather eat in, than out. About 5pm Saturday she told me she was super bored, and could she go spend the night with her grandparents? I said YES. After we dropped her off, we took a detour for...
We already had Champagne chilled and waiting...
We watched one of our all time favorite movies...
Scott got me flowers...
And a card... He really outdid himself this year. He's been dieting lately, so he locks himself in his office at lunch, and drinks a Slimfast. That takes him about 8 seconds, so then he has the rest of the time to just sit and surf the net or read. Last Friday... here's what he did...
He printed these pics and taped them inside of my card (yes, that's my head on someone else's body at the top). He is telling me he ordered me a Kindle, and the red cover (including built in light)... and that I will have it by the time we leave for Paris so I can read in the parks. I got him a Kindle 2 years ago for Christmas, and he LOVES it. I usually read books with pictures... no, not Dr. Suess... but books on decorating, travel, or how-to. He's convinced this Kindle will change my life, at least when I'm reading a novel. I also think he's tired of lugging around my carry-on with at least 5 books in it, because I'm never sure what I'll be in the mood to read. Now, we will carry only 2 sleek reading devices... oh... technology again!
Anyway... too sweet... don'tcha think? The reason I'm not bragging on what I got him, is because I was all out of ideas this year. We decided to not try and compete anymore, or worry about what the other person is getting. If you see something fabulous, or have a great idea, wonderful... otherwise, just relax!
Oh... and we did have a discussion about how Paris IS our gift this year... he's always breaking the rules :)
