nineteen years already????

Today Brent and I celebrated 19 years of wedded bliss. I can't believe it. I tried so hard to find him a gift but he has honestly become the hardest person to shop for that I know. He doesn't NEED anything and has become kind of picky about clothes, sporting goods, etc. We had a swim meet for our kids tonight so we were there until after 8:30 with them. Needless to say, we were not going to go out for a romantic dinner. Quite honestly, that is fine because we go out pretty much every friday night - just the two of us. Anyway, when we got home I found a really sweet note, 2 dozen red roses, and a portable GPS! (insert "awwwh" here)

I am so jazzed about this! I get lost all the time! I think maybe he got the idea to get it for me the other day after I called him in the middle of the day to help me get home from a swim meet in Highland Park. I do that kind of thing all the time. He knows how to get anywhere from anywhere in Dallas. I have absolutely no sense of direction. I may not be married to the perfect man but I think he is the perfect man for me! I feel really bad that I did not get him anything now. Oh well, there ARE those two shirts I bought for him when I was at Costco last you think that can count?

I love that when one person just gets a really sweet gift....That's what's great about a marriage you do not have to feel bad about it! We do that all the time:) It doesn't have to be "even". Enjoy your GPS and let me know how you like it:) I am directionally challenged also. Molly's GPS saved her the night of my birth...she said she never would have made it on time without it! HAPPY 19 years!

wow congrats! and about the whole potty training thing...I can't believe Evan can do it now...really wasnt much on my part...he got a really bad yeast infection from his antibiotics and so he didnt want to wear a thing led to another and now we're getting rid of big boy diapers for good!

Okay, so it's a good thing that you and I never tried to drive anywhere together...we'd probably end of in Oklahoma or something...I, too, am AWFUL with directions and can get lost at the drop of a hat. And since there are no mountains or landmarks, I don't know how anyone does it here! Dan also has a built-in (internal) navigational system that can take him any and EVERY where without the need for mapquest. Sigh. Everyone has a talent, right?

Just tell him he didn't get a gift cause you're saving up for number 20.

Wow... congrats on 19 years!

Thanks for the sweet compliments you left on my scrap blog. As far as I know, you don't need to change the size of your page to have it printed... the printers actually crop a tiny bit of the edges off to get the "full bleed" look so you just don't want any important information/elements really close to the edge. Hope that helps!

P.S. I'm still figuring out the scrapping stuff for blogs, especially since I don't use blogger or I'd totally take you up on your offer. I just might play around and try to make a blog kit though... most likely a freebie. Wish me luck!

WOW 19 years! Congratulations! The next 19 will probably be just as fabulous as the first!
Brianne said…
Okay, I totally got your comment mixed up with another "Shauna" on my scrap blog, so you can just disregard that unsolicited advice about printed scrapbook pages :)
