Yesterday was our 4th wedding anniversary, but as of the 3rd, we've been together for 10 years! It's seems like a lifetime, but at the same time it feels like just yesterday when he was walking up my front walkway to bring me a yellow rose.

It was a very quiet day. I made him his favorite breakfast- cinnamon french bread french toast. We hung out most of the day and watched TV. We didn't exchange gifts but we decided we were going to treat ourselves to new crisp white sheets and pillows. We bought pillows last weeks, so we need to find some good sheets. If you guys have any suggestions, let me know!

I bought Mr. h one of those singing cards from the bookstore. I bought it about 6 weeks ago and stashed it away. I went into the office and barely cracked the card open so he wouldn't hear it. I usually find those cards pretty annoying and I despise the people that stand in that card aisle and open up every obnoxious card. BUT, this card played our wedding song so I got it. When I gave it to Mr. h, he opened it and it sounded like a broken record. It kept repeating the first 3 words over and over. It was hilarious but a little sad. Stupid card. I was able to finagle the wires so it would play the entire song, but it's still a dumb card with a lot of thought.

He decided to make me a card so I gave him a stack of card stock, scrapbook stickers, colored pencils, scissors, a glue stick and a paper trimmer. It was so sweet and totally his idea.

We went to see a movie, since it's a cheap date and because it's one of the first things we did when we first met. This is the first movie we saw together, and this is the second. Last night we went to go see He's Just Not That Into You. It was funny, but a little ironic seeing as it was our anniversary. What's even funnier is that it was his choice. I wanted to see Gran Torino. A little stint of role reversal, I'd say :-) Then we went to eat a fajita dinner. It was a nice evening.

Our grooms cake was chocolate cake layered with chocolate mousse and strawberries. It is honestly the best cake I've ever had. I decided to make a version of that cake, but used homemade chocolate pudding and sliced strawberries in between the cake and topped it off with chocolate wafer cookie crumbs.

Visit here to see last year's 3rd anniversary.

Happy Anniversary! It sounds like you had a nice day. I think it's really great that he wanted to MAKE a card for you...how sweet.

The two of you have been through so much emotionally, and sometimes it's hard to deal with "normal" things like a wedding anniversary. I'm so glad that you celebrated it in a way you enjoyed!
