Fabulous Five

Matt and I had a really nice weekend we celebrated our anniversary the night before on Friday by going to eat at Smith and Wollensky. We always pass this steakhouse when we are shopping in Easton and we finally had a reason to check it out! This is also the place in the movie The Devil Wears Prada since the original is in NYC. Saturday was low key we went shopping, watched the **sad** OU game and went to see Argo. I LOVED Argo, the story is so intriguing I couldn’t take my eyes off the screen. I think that Ben Affleck has a gift when it comes to telling stories (he starred, produced and directed). You should go check it out…….

So Matt brought home take out and when I opened the sack this is what I found…………..OMG right?

 I have never seen this blue box before and I was over-joyed!! Look what he picked me out……Silver “Pearl” necklace and matching bracelet! It is perfect and I loved that Matt picked it out himself, it’s the perfect sentimental gift to always remember our 5th Anniversary!

 So I got Matt 5 gifts, 1 for each year. I got this wrapping paper at Target and on the corner of each gift I wrote a “Vow” of sort that correlated to what was in the package! For example:
“Here’s to our 6th inning of marriage” – This is a authentic Coach leather wallet made out of the leather used to make baseball gloves and the stitching is also the thread used in MLB gloves!

 This is a new shirt that I got Matt, super cute huh?? This box said “I want to clothe you in Love”

 And his other BIG gift is new boots! I spent weeks searching the web for the best pair that are classic but modern and well made…..so when he LOVED them I was soo happy! Score!

 Another gift is I got us tickets to see the Denver Broncos play the Cincinnati Bengals this Sunday!!! Our seats are really good too…..but there is a funny story about these tickets-
I got these on Stub Hub so they were not exactly cheap….they came about 1 month ago and I accidentally threw them AWAY! No joke, I was freaking out…..I was going to have to tell Matt “Hey, I got us tickets but I threw them away and we can’t afford to re-buy them” I was a wreck! But thank goodness after 3 weeks Stub Hub was able to get my “Seller” to reprint them and they came 2 days before our Anniversary! Whew! Close call!

Over all it was a nice relaxing weekend, I am sad that it is over and a new week began!

    That is too cute! I love how each thing had something to do with each gift you got him! I bet you was very thankful when that guy reprinted the tickets for you both. If I had of been you I think I might have cried otherwise…

    I love all the pics from your wedding and the presents you both go each other! And special bonus that he "surprised" you with the Tiffany boxes in the take-out bag. How fun!

    I love that he put your gift in the takeout bag…another step to show he was really planning this one out. I am so glad it went well and enjoyed time together.
