Our Anniversary

Monday was me and my Sexy Nerd's anniversary. We've been married 3 whole years! And, since our wedding was on the 4 year anniversary of our first date, we've been together a whopping 7 years!


After Sexy Nerd went to bed on Sunday night, I got started decorating.

I rescued this banner from the trash pile when cleaning my boss's house last week.
Have I mentioned that I work in a dental office?
That's a blog post for another day.

What a fun surprise when you come downstairs!
 Sexy Nerd gets up ridiculously early for work. I made him a batch of breakfast burritos to heat up in the morning and pre-filled the coffee maker for him.

 I framed a group of photos for him, including this collage. It features a note from the back of a photo he mailed to me back when we first started dating, when he was living in Michigan.

Ta da!

Next on my agenda was a little chalkboard door decor.
I had more anniversary scheming to do, but at almost midnight, it seemed time to wrap things up.

That, and Sexy Nerd opened the bedroom door upstairs and yelled for me to "QUIT BANGING THINGS AROUND DOWN THERE!"
I jotted down a note and went to bed.

The reward for my anniversary surprise? After seeing everything in the morning, Sexy Nerd came back upstairs feeling very foolish for getting mad.

Muah ha ha!
(My evil laugh)

Sexy Nerd wasn't about to be outdone though. Look what was delivered to my work!

Okay, guilt may very well have been at play here.

Isn't he such a sweetie? On a side note, a dental office is no place to have flowers sent. All day, people would walk up, SQUEEZE THE PETALS!!! and remark that they were real. Surprising when you consider all the plastic flowers that smell just like real roses and sit in vases of real water, right?
