Do you celebrate your anniversary? We do, but to be honest, it’s pretty lame. We usually mark the occasion with a dinner date. Sure, there’s bubbles (I am, after all, me…), flowers and the obligatory card, but…snooze. I don’t really know what I’m expecting, or if I should be expecting anything from our anniversary?
First year anniversary
Our first year anniversary was special. We were in New York on business, a friend snagged us a room at The Plaza Hotel and I had red hair! (Inspired by the locks of a dancer in a cage at a nightclub in Acapulco. Not one of my better choices.) Since then it’s been either picnics in the park (the London years) or dinner out. Since the huz isn’t a fan of fine dining, this is one of the few times a year I’m able to go to a kick ass restaurant with him.
This weekend will be our 12-year anniversary. Coincidentally my brother-in-law will be visiting us in Canmore at that time, which means I’ll likely start drinking caesars at 8 a.m. There’ll be board games, surely some kind of homemade Italian antipasti and lots of red wine. And I’m pretty sure I’ll get a fantastic night sleep, as the odds of the boys passing out in the basement are high. I’m actually really looking forward to his visit, but what does this say about me? Have I given in the towel? Do I not care about keeping romance alive?
Help me out here. Do you celebrate your anniversary? If so, how?
I’m the grinch that hates Mother’s Day and birthdays so I say celebrate your love and union however and whenever you want. :). Food, wine and board games your hubs and BIL sounds like fun to me! Happy anniversary!
Mixed tape. Nothing says love like a mixed tape.
Yes, such a good idea! And I posted a mixed tape/USB in last week’s Friday Faves (along with some good info on oil pulling….)
OMG, Jody, you look about 14 in the New York pic!
The hubs and I are the most unromantic anniversary couple. We buy something together we normally wouldn’t (or shouldn’t) – like, artwork or furniture. So not lovely-dovey. On the upside, I hate trying to figure out gifts, so this makes it easier!
And a mixed tape. Happy Anniversary!
Let me start off by saying you are both looking hotter as the years go on. Yes, celebrate! With or without other people. 1212 years is an accomplishment given that most couples don’t get past the 7 yr itch (which has now been reduced to 4!)
drink bubbles, beer, tequila, whatever, just have fun.
Really? The seven year itch has been reduced to four? Wow! OK, you’re right, we ought to do something.
