Monday was my and hubby’s two year wedding anniversary. In just a few days, we road-trip to vacation at a beautiful Bed and Breakfast in Little Rock. I’m pretty excited. For the actual day of our anniversary, hubby and I planned on a quiet celebration but instead ended up having a few mini-celebrations. It was a perfect mix of relaxing, surprising, fun, yummy and sexy. But mostly fun. We have a lot of that together, since we double as best friends and all. Here’s a timeline of the day we spent commemorating our 730 days of marriage:
I recently found a job on SitterCity, nannying for a few hours in the mornings on Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays. This past Friday, I received a text from my little one’s mommy asking what day my anniversary was, but didn’t think much of it. I arrived Monday morning to find a card with my name on it and a nice bottle of wine that I’ve always been too cheap to buy myself. I really seem to luck out with those who hire me. And with those in my life in general. Me=Spoiled/Blessed.
I received a text from hubby asking me what time I worked until. When I told him noon and asked why he wanted to know, he replied in Robby-fashion, “Gotta send my mistress home.” I knew this meant I’d probably have a surprise waiting when I got home. And not one that I’d have to kill.
12:30 pm (Surprises!) :
On the front of the card that read, “My partner, My friend” He scribbled, “My wife” underneath. I thought he did it just to be extra cute, but he actually did so for clarification purposes. He said the card was perfect for us (he’s big on finding the card that perfectly describes the words he would use if he was more poetically inclined), but that he thought it may have originally been targeted towards homosexual couples. His thought processes often amuse me.
Double Daves. Mmmm. Since I’ve been dieting on the weekdays, I’ve found a whole new appreciation for food when I give myself a day off. It’s very similar to when I went out of state with a friend for over a week this past summer and then came back home to my husband. Withholding seems to make many things so much better when you finally get it. Ya know what I’m sayin’?
In between some homework and housework, we also added some cuddles,bantering over our two years of marital bliss and searching for the perfect restaurant to eat at for the night. I sat in Robby’s lap as we pondered, debated and laughed trying to find the perfect place from his computer. Husband stated somewhere around the middle of our search, “This is fun.” And it was.
I gave husband my gift to him, a picture/video timeline of our relationship together, starting from the day we met. I’ve made little timelines before, but because of my lack of patience they always come out half put-together and crappy looking. This one was different. I was patient. I took time picking out just the right pictures. I yelled at my computer but eventually came to peace with it. I used our wedding song as background music and got emotional numerous times while making it. This boy and our life together is something I adore a whole bunch, and I just wanted to make something that properly expressed that. Husband knows how much I suck at taking time on things, so he was pleasantly surprised and happy with his gift. He got a little emotional too, I think. I even made friends on facebook tear up. Yay for Christina learning the value of patience!
We decided on a little sushi place by our house called Tokai. It was our first time trying it out, and Robby had a coupon through his work for $25 dollars off, so we got to splurge a little. Cute place, sweet staff and delicious sushi. Oh. And a hot man whom I like a lot sitting across from me. This is always a plus.
All in all, it was a wonderfully romantic and playful two year anniversary, and there isn’t any other dude that would be better to share it with. I may even keep this one for another two years. (Ha.)
Ps: LITTLE ROCK ON MONDAY! Don’t worry, I will bring lots of pictures back. Because I know you were worried.
