Happy Anniversary to me

Friday, February 22nd, 2008

So, I’ve received my anniversary presents.

One dozen lavender roses.
One box of chocolates.



They’re delicious. They’re Grey and Smoked Salt Caramels by Fran’s Chocolate Ltd.

Very tasty.



Lilah says we should send her flowers and buy her chocolates.

Changing my hair appointment from 10 am to 5:30 pm has been worth it because they both showed up before 12:30 or while I would have been gone. (I called Jon just to see if I’d be getting anything today when I was making my appointment yesterday.)

So those are my gifts from Jon.

The hair appointment is my gift to myself. I’ll be getting highlights and cutting off about 2 inches. Shoulder length is just too long for me to do and feel cute and sassy, plus I think I might add bangs again because they also help me feel cute, even if they drive me nuts on days I don’t do my hair.

Tomorrow we’re planning on a matinĂ©e movie while the girls are at a birthday party and then dinner at a restaurant his office manager recommended and gave us a gift card for. (The gift card is good for any Station Casino restaurant but she recommended a specific one.)
She gave it to Jon as a Christmas present, but since we rarely go somewhere this nice I thought we’d save it for our anniversary.

I love anniversaries.
I love when they’re kinda a two day event.
Gifts one day and dinner the next makes it very fun.

Jon’s been officially admitted for the Fall 2008 school year for the Electrical Engineering master’s program at UNLV!

Wahoo, what a wonderful anniversary present!

It was through e-mail that we got the news, so we’ll be getting the letter shortly in the mail. Plus he only has about a year or so till he’s done!

This is such a relief and a good thing for our family.

I’m so proud of you babe!

6 years

Our sixth year anniversary is this Saturday.
I can’t believe how the time passes.

My friend Elizabeth made a video for her husbands birthday and it inspired me to do this for our anniversary, especially since Jon told me to be cheap for his present.

Well, I was cheap and I created this to remind you of the fun we’ve had Sweetie!

The song is one I love, Dixie Chicks Easy Silence, even though some of the lyrics don’t go with an anniversary video, but it makes me happy to sing along with it and it reminds me of my husband and our relationship.

I’m not one for withholding surprises so I’ve posted it early, in which I’ve been asking if I could show him the surprise since Monday!

I was also worried that two little girls might spill the beans. I told Lilah it was a surprise and Eden nothing, cause she’s two, and at dinner when Jon came home Monday Eden started saying how you and mommy got married and then Lilah said it was a surprise. :oops:

I now know that I must keep it from them if I want nothing said, but for Lilah’s credit she didn’t say anything detailed.

I love you dear!
