Gosh...what a perfect day. I would not change a thing about that day back in 2011. Well, ok...maybe one thing...the temperature! But seeing as how that is completely out of my control. Nothing. It was perfect.
So back to this year...we really didn't have anything planned for the day, but we did know we wanted to go somewhere yummy for dinner. We had a really hard time finding anywhere to go because all of the places in the area we were trying to visit were closed for the week of the 4th! I know, crazy!
While we racked our brains for the rest of the day on where to eat dinner that night, Sean went to the grocery store to get stuff to make a yummy breakfast! Oh, and I was smart the day before and bought a bottle of bubbles for the occasion.
I have always loved the idea of giving the traditional anniversary gifts to each other. I just think it's really neat. So year 2 was cotton. I splurged on some very. nice. dress socks for SP! He absolutely loves them! I think I might be in trouble now because I doubt his $12 Banana Republic socks are going to cut it for him since these beauties came to town. He wears dress socks every single day, so it was well worth the splurge! Downside (other than his obsession) is that I am now getting fabulous emails from Barneys NewYork with beautiful items attached, like Prada handbags. I mean. Like I need that :)
|Spotted: SP already wearing his new socks within 30 minutes of owning them!|
Sean got me a cotton yoga towel that goes down on your mat to keep you from sliding in hot yoga. I love it (well, I haven't exactly used it yet...but I have been wanting one, so I can't wait to try it out!). He also got me a delicious smelling candle and giftcard from Anthropologie, and these lovely flowers! He picked each type of flower out by himself and put the arrangement together. I love him!
The card is a funny story. He saw the card and really liked it...
After he opened it, he realized it wasn't appropriate for him to give me, so he just made it work anyway :)
For dinner, we went to Winslow's off of Camp Bowie in Fort Worth. I had been before with my friend Courtney for wine and appetizers, but never for dinner. It was really tasty and fun to go somewhere different and out of our norm.
Happy Anniversary, Sean! Here's to many. many. mannnnnnny more :)
