So yesterday was amazing
I don’t know if you guys know this but traditionally there are specific gifts that you are supposed to give for each anniversary. I had no idea about this!
but luckily…..I’m psychic 😉
So I made Colin a scrapbook album all out of paper! YAY. Unfortunately this is a E for everyone rated blog and so I hope you’ll all appreciate the fact that I can only show you the cover of what I made for him….
Yep, that’s right ladies – that is my nude body on the cover behind one of his guitars 😉 and that book is probably the best creative piece I’ve ever produced. I had to take some of the pics by myself, get my friend Char to come over and make me beautiful to take more, edit them all like crazy, cut cardstock, print photos. I even made different sections and header page photos and made it look sleek, masculine and sexy all while maintaining my class at the same time. I even put those letters on the front. I am so proud of myself! <—– I have never scrapbooked before!
Judge away but when your husband bugs you for a little something, something I bet you wish you had a hot book like that you could just throw at him instead 😉 ha! you know those nights I speak of….the ones with the headaches ;P
Colin also kept the tradition of paper going on (though he had known about the year traditions) and gave me the best present ever!!!!!!!
Colin also got me a single red rose – it was something he used to do back when we were teens: buy me a rose for every month we were together – so now it’s years. Can’t wait till 60 years: diamonds and 60 roses! lol
*I just realized there are specific flowers for each year too…..but I like roses!
We went to this hidden gem Thai restaurant we had found while I was pregnant and we not only love the food, but the atmosphere is worth the trip….
Every table and chair is made out of trees! <—- I realize all wood comes from trees but you know what I mean, I think it’s tree roots. There are real pillows on the chairs, a waterfall and amazing art and decorations all over.
We shared taro spring rolls and I got sweet & sour tofu while Colin got an a la carte pad thai he constructed himself
It was just nice to get out! Thanks so much to Carrie who took Logan while we were out. FYI: Logan loves her son Tyler. So much so that I get to hear about him almost everyday
Year 2 is “cotton“ I have no idea what I’m going to get but I’ll think about it when the time comes.
I LOVE YOU BABE!!!! xoxoxox
1. did you know about the anniversary gift traditions?? do you follow them or march to your own beat?
I think now that I know about them, I’ll follow them. I am way more romantic than I let on so I suppose that’s the only area I’m traditional 😉
2. ever take any Boudoir shots of yourself?
I highly recommend it – extremely liberating. Especially when you’re in a relationship
3. what’s the last concert you went to??
I think it was Radiohead….which is sad because that was years ago. Unless you count my husbands band 😛
