A Moment of Weakness

Tomorrow marks the fourth year anniversary of when the hubs and I decided to tie the knot. Above a Tanners. Downtown. Very classy…

In all actuality, it was an evening filled with the kind of moments that, to this day, people start sentences: “remember the night of you guys’ wedding when…” Now what could be better than that? And to clarify, it was at Club 1000, a tasteful joint lit with white lights, harps playing in dimly lit corners and a DJ that knew how to keep the party alive until we were kicked out. And ran the rental car into a stone wall…but that’s a story for another day.

Again, I digress…

What I really want to rave about for a moment is my wish list item for this anniversary. Now, I know I should be my normal self and get all sappy about how much I love M, the amazing life we have created in our near-decade together and so on and so forth. But let’s be real for a second…L had a successful surgery today, we’ve been up since 4:30 a.m. and Momma’s tired. I’ll go sappy on you tomorrow.

For now, join me in ooohhiing and aahhhiinngg over this delightful little number, will you? Marked September 13 for the little man’s special day. In a blue sapphire. Sophisticated, different and of course…jewelry. Truly the perfect gift that surely could count as the modern four-year gift of an applicance, yeah? I firmly believe that in a woman’s world, a sterling necklace could count as an appliance. After all it’s a tool (outfit completor) that allows for improvement (superficially fills your soul for a second).

So, if you run into M, give him a clue will ya? Because the boy doesn’t read the blog – and for sure I’m not getting the gift of that this year either. And of course convince him his love for a lifetime will always be enough...but the necklace could really seal the deal. And if you have to bring up the 30th birthday debacle (you know who you are), then hey – all is fair in love and love, right?!
