Thanks for all the well-wishes yesterday! Stephen and I have been together for 11 years (6 of which we’ve lived together and 3 of which we’ve been married for), and I think that’s pretty good. I know I’m lucky to have found such a sweet, funny, hard-working guy so early in life. I try to remind myself of that every day, not just on our anniversary.
So how did we celebrate the big 3rd wedding anniversary? We started with scrambled eggs a la me.
Stephen comes home between morning PT and reporting to work for the day, but he really only has time to shower and grab something quick to eat. I thought it’d be nice to treat him to a special breakfast.
There was a lot going on on post yesterday, so I figured I wouldn’t see Stephen until dinner time. He even called in the middle of the day to check-in and tell me all the stuff they still had left to do. Turn out, it was a rouse! He was on his way home with Subway sandwiches.
I can usually tell when Stephen is trying to trick me, but this time I had no idea. Well played, Stephen, well played. After scarfing our foods and watching some TV, we spent the next few hours taking on the romantic task of unpacking. (Okay, so it’s not really romantic at all, but it had to be done.)
Our home was once stacked to the brim with boxes. Now most of the boxes are folded up and we are shoving the packing paper in every nook and cranny we can find.
I feel so much better looking around and seeing our progress. I’m one of those people who hates clutter and gets all skeevy around it. Now the majority of the rooms are box-free. hallelujah!
We stopped unpacking in the evening so that we could relax a little. Stephen made dinner! (Another special treat! I do all the dinner-making these days. I felt like a queen in a castle waiting for him to serve me our fancy meal while lounging on the couch.)
While this anniversary wasn’t as romantic as our first (we had a fancy dinner at Arthur’s in Addison, Texas where our wedding reception was held) or as memorable as our second (we enjoyed another fancy dinner and watched the Texas Rangers win a pivotal playoff game with a grand-slam home run), it was so us, and it was just right.*
