My Husband, The Romantic

It seems like just yesterday my wedding cake was melting under the sun shining through the big bay window of our reception hall.

I cannot believe it has been five years already. We have had our share of ups and downs, but there's still no one else I could tolerate sharing my life with. Our anniversary was very nice--well, at least if you were me. :) My husband went all out.

I awoke to breakfast in bed, which consisted of OJ, scrambled eggs with mushrooms and chives, homemade waffles (yes, you read that right--he made them from scratch), and tea, which was brought to me in what was my anniversary present, my very own tea set. It was served with a fresh bouquet of flowers.

My husband had a photo sitting on our anniversary, so in protest I had scheduled a pedicure for myself. When I got out to my car, there was another gift waiting for me. It was a cute squirrel votive candle holder (I heart squirrels). It turns out that in addition to the tea set, Hubby had purchased five separate gifts, for our five years of marriage, which he presented throughout the morning. There were also five bouquets of flowers for the five years of marriage, which he placed around the house.

Isn't he sweet?

Thank you honey for a great weekend. Happy Anniversary!

Congrats on number five! What's the anniversary gift for five? Wood? Paper? Gummy bears?

Awww, happy anniversary! Stories like that keep me hopeful that the single scum that I encounter are not all that's left.

VE: It's wood. And I want to know who comes up with these things. What sort of wooden gift screams "Happy Fifth Anniversary?" Oh, that's right, NONE.

Growler: Thanks! And there are good men out there--they are just few and far between...and mostly located in the Midwest.

Congratulations on five wonderful years! You guy sounds like a gem.

p.s. If all the good guys are there, I'm moving to the mid-west!!!!

Wow! Imagine what your 50th Anniversary will bring! That'll be an awfully huge bunch of flowers!
Your breakfast sounds wonderful! I've been craving breakfast foods lately - it's all those darn commercials with pancakes piled with strawberries & whipped cream that get me thinking about breakfast. Now after reading about your wonderful breakfast, I think I really need a big breakfast in the morning. I'm just too lazy to make it. Maybe your hubby could teach my hubby how to make a fabulous breakfast!

Queen: Thanks. And if you are ever in my neck of the woods, I actually have a potential candidate for you... :)

Colleen: LOL. I can somewhat relate, since I LOVE breakfast food, and I'm in a non-pregnant state. Maybe if you print out pictures of yummy breakfast foods and leave them around the house, your hubby will get the hint. :)

Sorry I'm late to the party. But I would still like to wish you both a very happy anniversary. Congrats on your big first 5!
