1. Brian and I recently celebrated our 11th year anniversary...
He came home with these for me!! I swear they look like a beautiful sunset! Everytime I walked by them, I couldn't help but ooo and ahh! They really took my breath away!
He always buys his roses at Wegmans (the most awesome store in the world)--We are so fortunate to have one just down the street from us! Believe it or not, a dozen roses there only costs $10! I'll be sure to document this store sometime soon...
2. We didn't actually go out ON our anniversary because it fell on a Wednesday and he had scouts...I suppose I should have insisted that we celebrate that day, but it's hard to go out on a date during the week...
We went out last Saturday and he let me pick the restaurant...
In hindsight, I should have gone with something cozy and romantic and possibly "thai-ish", but I had been craving a good old fashioned juicy steak for months now and decided to make reservations at ...Texas Roadhouse! (Nothing says romance like a crowded chain restaurant that allows people to throw their peanuts everywhere!) Seriously, this slightly disturbed me...I think I'm becoming more and more neurotic each day!
I just had this overwhelming urge to just get out my broom and dustpan and go to town!
Anyway, even with the call ahead service, we still waited over an hour to get seated...I was so bugged and so by the time my steak came, I inhaled it! (It's always embarrassing to me that I finish my food long before Brian!) I've never been the kind of date that just picks at her food or just orders a salad!
Having such extensive waits everytime we want to go out to a family friendly restaurant is one of the things I hate about living in the suburbs--
3. I got my new rose gloves in the mail today! I'm not sure what happened to my other ones, but I am in desperate need of them--
My arms are completely scratched up and punctured from my pruning escapades the other day...
These are like buttuh! Seriously!--They are the best gardening gloves I've ever had!
4. Ca'mon! Tell me this isn't the cutest thing you've ever seen?!
I love these hamsters (even though I've got some serious bags under my eyes from all of the shenanagans they pulled last night on their exercise wheel)--I had to get up twice to move it away from the water bottle as it was scraping against it! ugh! We have them in a cage in Jake's room which is right next to ours. One of the many joys of having an old house is that there's not alot of cushion between the walls that connect our bedrooms...
I snapped this picture the other day of "Pip"--
Our little pet name for them is "mini mammals"
I found these flats in the junior section of Kohls the other day and thought they'd be perfect with jeans and capris--
The last time I owned a pair of Candie's, I think it was when I was sporting Love's Baby Soft and pegging my pants...
I feel so updated!
I also made a purchase to Land's End for a new swimsuit (this oughta be interesting as I bought a size smaller than what I actually am at the moment)--I'm hoping that this will prove to be incentive for me to lose weight...If I don't lose it by bathing suit season, I'm hosed!
