You know how when you get to be married for many years, anniversaries just don't seem to have that certain "pizazz" as they did when you first got married?? Don't get me wrong, I love my honey, but when July 29 comes around, a few days before the conversation always goes something like this:
Matt: "So, what do you want for our anniversary?"
Me: "I don't know. Just don't get me anything." (and my eyes are saying, "You better get me something special to commemorate our years of marriage and it better not be flowers cause they die, and it better not be expensive cause we don't need to be wasting money, but it better get recognized!!!")
Matt: "Well, do you want to do?"
Me: "I don't know. What do you want to do?" (and again,"Come on! Can't you think of something creative and special???")
And of course the conversation happened again this year, only my hubby had a plan!!!
Last night, we celebrated 14 years on the edge of Lake Travis at the
Oasis Resturant. This place is known for it's fantastic sunsets over Lake Travis.
Take a look:
And even though our 2 sweet boys were with us for dinner, we had a fantastic time!
Today, he surprised me once more with 14 gift cards!!!! And you are now saying, "What? Gift cards?" Let me tell you ladies, I love gift cards- it's like free money to me!! Yes, I know that the $$$ to purchase the cards came out of my bank account, but it sure doesn't seem that way when I am spending them!!
Look, there's one to my favorite place to buy a bottle of wine (Spec's), Target, iTunes......
My favorite sandwich shop, 2 bookstores, Old Navy, and Chuy's!! Yipee!
I am super thrilled with my hubby's creativity here and think it was a fantastic idea!! I love it....can't wait for 50 gift cards on our 50th!! hee...hee...
P.S. The girls are back from camp and were chattering non-stop all afternoon about it!! Join us tomorrow as they blog about it!!
