Leather is the "traditional" gift for the third year, so we originally bought each other Sperrys. I got a great sale and purchased them a few weeks back, but they have been sitting in the box, waiting for the anni (didn't want to jinx anything.)
WELL, then our friend the jeweler decided to do a big 50% off sale Monday-Wednesday of this week, so we ended up spoiling each other a bit more. Hubby wanted cuff links and I couldn't pick a fave, so figured I'd just get him two since they are half price. I wanted some new gold earrings and picked out a couple of less expensive pairs.
Then the owner walked in with a box of jewelry he had purchased at an estate sale. I browsed, trying on rings, etc. And I found THEM. The most beautiful pair of earrings ... a small hoop, with several diamonds set in yellow gold. They weren't priced so we asked ... and I almost choked and handed them back. I loved them more than I was willing to admit.
So back to yesterday. Of course, it was a 7-6 work day. Hubby offered to pick up Cooper, which was great! I pulled into the garage and got a call from hubby, asking where I was ... he and Cooper were around back and he wanted me to know.
I walked into the kitchen so I could hurry up and fill out his card. That boy had potatoes on the stove and the table was set, including wine glasses <3. Once I came downstairs, he was grilling. He had bought chicken, Caesar salad mix and crescent rolls. Yummy (Yes, I pretty much doubled my calories yesterday AND skipped my workout :)) We had some vino that we brought back from California earlier this year.
Then we opened our gifts. I looked at the one he gave me and CRACKED UP because when I was browsing cards I knew that if he saw that one, he would buy it for me. Then he said that he had the same one I bought him in his hand to buy until he found the one he did buy - ha!
So we opened our bags and I found these - what I told him my top pick was.
