2nd Year of Wedded Bliss
Boy, this has just been a crazy week. I’m so glad it’s Friday! I need a vacation from my last weekend/this week!
Update on Mini Me, he dropped about 200lbs we’re guessing while he was sick and at the vet, but he’s home and so far acting like his normal, usually, self. That’s a plus!
And I pretty well had posts to share all the way up until today, today included, however because of Wednesday & Thursday’s post our anniversary post had to wait a few days.
Hubby leaves for work earlier than I do, but most days I get up with him, Tuesday was no different, however I beat both of our alarms. I think I may have been a tad excited!
I was with my mom the day I bought his present, and it was rather large, so I planned on getting it from her at work on Tuesday and then giving it to him in the evening, however Monday when I made mention of that he kind of led on that I would be getting my present Tuesday morning so I had to figure out how to get his present from my parents house to ours. What better way, than in mom’s HUGE suitcase. Besides his present was awkward enough to try and wrap that I just told him, that’s the wrapping :).
So once he opened up mom’s suitcase, there was his present, his very own suitcase! He’s been wanting one for a while because I guess he doesn’t like dragging my giraffe looking suitcase around. What’s really funny is if we do go somewhere, we go together so he could very easily pass it off as my luggage, but whatevs, now he has a black “manly” suitcase :). Oh and seeing as though traditional 2nd year gifts are Cotton Balls or China, I stuck Q-tips and cotton balls in the suitcase for him :).
Ignore the way I look, it was 6:30 in the morning and I had just woken up. But look at the gorgeous wrapping job on my present!
A bit of a story, while we were still dating I told him that someday I wanted a charm bracelet for my anniversaries with a charm every year to represent, him, me, us, or an event in our life, just something meaningful to us as a whole. Last year “paper” I got this gorgeous charm that looks like a book. This year being “cotton” or “China” I wondered what I would wind up with… so I got a Bale of Cotton Charm. How precious is that!
|My first charm finally has a buddy!!|
He had to go on-line and go to cotton Plantations down in the Southeast who had gift stores. It’s even filled with real field cotton. My husband is GREAT!
Now, he’s out of vacation so taking the day off together wouldn’t work, so we both went to work. Fabulous way to spend your 2nd Anniversary, huh? Last year at that time we were in Hawaii on Catamaran’s and Parasailing!
When we got off work we both ran home and changed clothes and got in one vehicle and decided to go do a small anniversary photo shoot. Wow, that was a lot of ands in that sentence. Anyway, we both put on our outfits we left our reception in and I put on my wedding shoes. Yup, 2 years later I still fit into the dress, that’s good right?
Now being in Hawaii last year we weren’t able to do a photo shoot holding our wedding photo, unfortunately, so this year we did the shoot holding both photos. Next year we plan on holding the 2nd year wedding photo and so on until we’re like 150 and senile. Then we’ll hold the photos and wonder who those beautiful folks are :).
And I put this little collage together of our years together. The first photo was taken the latter part of September when we kind of became official, then our wedding photo taken on 9/4/10, our vow renewal photo on 9/6/11 and our 2nd anniversary photo taken on 9/4/12.
I’m just trying to figure out how next year’s collage will work with 5 photos, any ideas? Odd numbers seem a bit difficult!
oh and in this year’s photo, if you wonder why my hand is flat against my leg, I have the remote in my hand trying to find it! ha! Ok I’ll quit now, happy Friday and hope y’all have a fantabulous weekend!
