I cannot believe Andy and I have been married for 10 years! We cannot be that OLD!! LOL! It has been 10 years full of life changes and we have weathered the storms and seen the rainbows!
We celebrated Friday night, June 8th, our actual anniversary day.
This is us before we left the house.
We started out at the Mesquite Chop House. YUMMY! I had pork tenderloin and Andy had a filet, always cooked to perfection. We shared some scalloped potatoes and I had a glass of champagne, while he had a Budweiser. We exchanged presents over dinner, which is a story in itself.
I bought Andy a gift card to Dick's Sporting Goods store because he asked for a new driver. Anyone that knows about golf knows you can't buy one of those for someone, they have to be "fitted" for it. So to keep it a surprise, I had to get him a gift card and he went Saturday after our anniversary and picked it out himself.
A week before our anniversary, Andy asked me what I wanted. I told him that I needed work-out clothes and they were expensive so he could get me a gift card to Sports Authority. He just laughed in my face and said, "There is no way I am getting you a gift card to a sports place for our 10 year anniversary!" So there I am feeling like a complete idiot for getting him a gift card to a "sports place." So, fast forward to Friday night at dinner. He hands me a card and inside is a gift card to Sports Authority. Well, I gave him hell! I told him, after he opened his gift card, that he had made me feel like a loser for getting him that gift when all along he had the same thing.
We left dinner and went downtown to the Majestic Grille for dessert. We sat on the patio and "people watched" and enjoyed each others company. Their desserts are $2 each and come in a shot glass. I got the chocolate mousse and Andy got the strawberry shortcake. Both were delicious and just enough after a big meal.
On our way downtown I brought up the gift card thing again and asked him why he would play such a mean trick. He said, "I can't stand it anymore" and reached behind the seat and handed me what he called "my real gift." It was another wedding band to put on the other side of my ring!! He had been working on it since January. I took my ring in a couple of weeks ago to get it cleaned and the prongs tightened and they kept it longer than usual because they were making a mold of the band. He gave me the band without the diamonds Friday night. I had to take the band and my ring in on Monday so they could match the diamonds perfectly so they had to keep my ring for a week.
These are our final gifts:
New wedding ring
BTW~there was no money on the Sports Authority gift card! :)
We ended the night at The Embassy Suites where we spent the night, slept in, and had a wonderful breakfast the next morning. It was truly a perfect milestone anniversary!
