Happy Orange Friday!
This was a really great week. Hubby and I had a really nice anniversary dinner out and we even exchanged gifts. This was our 8th anniversary and the traditional gift is bronze/pottery and the modern gift is linen/lace. This is an orange canister I found to hold the lace part of his gift. I made pizzelles, one of his favorite cookies that his aunts make. A huge thank you to Aunt B and R for sharing the recipe with me and Maria for letting PB and I come over and play with Cooper and snuggle baby C and use your pizzelle maker.
The bonus of this canister is that it is pottery :) I was looking for a cookie tin that was nice but when I saw this at TJ Maxx, it jumped in my arms (and so did a few other things.) For linen my mom suggested some really nice linen paper. So I used that box to hide the rest of his gift which was a gift certificate for us to go get couples massages when my mom is here in 2 weeks. I know your thinking, "what about bronze?" well turns out if you want to buy your hubby a sculpture of 2 lovers embracing, then bronze is an easy gift for you. After spending hours searching on the internet for ideas, bronze and I are are never speaking ever again. And a huge thank you to my mom because she helped me figure out this gift on a panicked phone call while I was in the mall.
Hubby did not go the traditional gift route and got me a sparkly bracelet. It is lovely. Our dinner was perfect, quiet and romantic. We enjoyed a couple of adult beverages and shared a chocolatey dessert that was amazing...
