HappyHappyHappyHappyHappy Anniversary!




Yesterday was my wedding anniversary with The Hub. So instead of reading all your delicious blog posts, I was spending the day planning an ornate dinner that would metaphorically symbolize the peaks and valleys of our years together.

Which means, I let my son sculpt some peaks and valleys in the mashed potatoes.

And really, "ornate" is a relative term. I believe the scene would've looked similar to this:

[Scene: Morning of Anniversary. The Hub getting ready for work. Me, bleary eyed, alfalfa hair, AWESOME breath.]

Me: Let me make you some breakfast!

Hub: I'd love to, but I'm running late.

Me: How do silver-dollar pancakes...fresh orange juice, bacon and Kona coffee sound?

Hub: [Flashes surprised smile.] It sounds great.

[He sits in the dining room, waiting for his grand meal and sipping some coffee with the paper. I reappear, holding a cereal box.]

Me: Sorry. I didn't have those other things. [Pours milk.]

YES, yes, I plagiarized that entire scene. But I did add the stage directions.

Anyway, it was a lovely evening that left me strongly reminded of just how much my husband loves me. Because, I don't think just ANY man would buy the kind of gift that says "Yes, I know you're obsessed with a 19 year old girl and a 23 year old boy" and "No, I won't call the police."


The gift that's half "Aww, The Hub rocks" and half "Really Kristine? Really?"

It's perfect.

  1. Happy belated anniversary.

    Wow. That's love right there. You get to slap yourself with Rob P's face every day. I'm jealous.

  2. At least my wife obsesses over older men. I don't feel so bad buying her whatever Colin Firth thing is out.

  3. Snap BRACELETS! Yes! I have some of those hidden from the kids here in our house, I'm afraid of the damage they could do with them.

  6. Belated Happy Anniversary! I refuse to comment on the gift...I read the books but haven't started collecting stuff. You've arrived at a new level Kristine, one where I cannot go. Next it will be a Team Edward Tshirt...

  7. what the? i thought snap bracelets were banned forever because they hurt people somehow? or something?

  8. The best part about that snap bracelet is that it says "Snap Bracelet" on it. I guess that's to prevent injury, or surprises, or coolness. No I'm just kidding, it's cool, I totally want one. Do they come in Hannah Montana?*

    *Sounds sarcastic, but totally isn't.

  9. Too bad it wasn't an original Zack Attack slap bracelet with you two singing Friends Forever. Then I might be reeeeaaallly jealous.

    Happy Anniversary, K! It really is awesome.

  10. Happy Anniversary! Yesterday was ours, too! We celebrated with really good cards and then splitting up for two different youth football practices in two different parks. I'm sure we'll probably have sex in the next couple weeks though, because we're all romantical like that.

  11. I just wanted to echo what that Chinese guy said.

    I mean, I think that pretty much sums up what we all want to say, right there.

  12. I think the Chinese is a series of map coordinates and missile launch codes.
    Oh, and happy anniversary to you two.

  13. my very white daughter believes she's chinese. true story. wish it weren't. perhaps she can translate that earlier comment that she undoubtedly left. kidding. maybe. hopefully.

    anyhow - still hate that you're a twilighter but still love you and wish you many more happy years together with the hub.

  14. Thanks for the well-wishes, peeps! And now I kind of have to leave the Chinese (is it Chinese?) spam up just for humor's sake.

    And the bracelet is probably so cool that it both begins and ends my Twilight merch collection. But scooping up some Hannah Montana might not be such a bad idea.

  15. They still make slap bracelets?!? I loved those as a kid. But now I'm obsessing over that Kona coffee. When I first read that, I thought "Damn this lady wears PJs all day and can afford Kona? She must be a baller..."
