How To Have A Romantic Anniversary or How To Torture Your True Love--If You're a Girl

Hubby and I celebrated our eighteenth wedding anniversary over the weekend. Not only does this make me sound really old, but what we did makes me sound even older--and just a fraction cracked.

Don't believe me? You might after I'm done writing this. And sorry in advance to my mom and hubby. Maybe.

So, what romantic activity did we engage in for our anniversary? A secluded retreat to a condo without the kids? A leisurely stroll along the fall colored mountain trails? A romantic candle-lit dinner? Um, no. We went bra shopping. Yup. My hubby loves me that much. It went something like this:

Me, showing hubby a newspaper advertisement for said clothing sale: Hey! Look! A sale!

Hubby: Okay?

Me: You want to go?

Hubby, just staring at me like I was a little cracked. (This happens more than you'd think it would. Strange.)

Me: Will you come with me?

Hubby: Do I have to stand in the bra department?

Me: No. You can go to housewares if you want.

Hubby secretly rolling his eyes. (It's secret because his actual physical eyes didn't roll, but I sensed the inner, mental rolling, because I can feel stuff like that.): Sure.

AND after I tortured him in the bra deptartment, Hubby took me to the book store. I left with two new books. Then he took me to dinner where he said this, "I have great respect for you."

And I said, "Respect?"

And he said, "Based on fear. I'm afraid you might bite me and I'll bleed out through my jugular."

See, isn't that romantic? And, yes mom, I am sorry for posting about bra shopping.

And, (just so I can start another sentence with and) I love you my awesome hubby.

Lol, happy anniversary! That's true love, right there. :)

Shallee, yup. He's a keeper. Thanks for the anniversary wishes and for stopping by the blog. :)

True love is so understated in books where the hero merely risks his life to save the maiden. True love comes out in the delicates section of department stores (or in the kitchen, neck deep in a hundred year old cake recipe). Great post! Boy, the respect is sure there.

Jonene, the delicate department always brings out the best in people. Right?

LOL! That was just awesome. Happy anniversary! =)

My husband and I just had number 14. We ate at Taco Bell and spent two blissful hours at Barnes and Noble without kids. Happy Anniversary.
I can't take my husband into the bra department, he tries to sneak in with me. Seriously.

Happy Anniversary! Your hubby is awesome. What a great guy to go with you. And that jugular comment was pretty hilarious, too. ;)

LeishaMaw said...

Carolyn, thanks! I was a pretty fun day.

Jolene, I love Taco Bell. It's my comfort food. Yum. And LOL about your hubby sneaking into the bra dept. Way funny.

L.T., I thought the jugular comment was funny, too. He so loves me and gets my sense of humor. Who could ask for more?

Happy anniversary! That jugular comment is hilarious.

LeishaMaw said...

Brodi, I thought so, too. So much so that I pulled out my pen and wrote it down. I think he groaned a bit as I did it.
