Yesterday was mine and Erikâ€™s 4th anniversary. We usually try to do something like going out to eat at a special restaurant or even take a trip. But, since BabyK arrived, we wanted to not go extravagant as you never know what may come up with a baby financially. So, we agreed to make our own dinner at home, but to grill steaks and have baked potatoes instead of the ole chicken salad sandwich or grab-whatever-looks-good-in-the-fridge supper.
But when Erik came home, he also surprised me with a little giftâ€¦.
â€œâ€¦and Baby makes three!â€ â€“ New Parents Ornament
Every year since we have been married, we have gotten a new ornament for our tree from Hallmarkâ€™s Keepsake collection. This year, he got the â€œNew Parentsâ€ one. He said he chose that one because a lot of people would probably be giving us ones that say â€œBabyâ€™s First Christmasâ€ and things like that. He wanted one that, since it was our anniversary, still included him, but would be about usâ€¦. that would mark our first Christmas as parents. (*SWOON!*)
He is so thoughtful. I mean, how much sweeter can you get???
Well, he took it to the next level.
See, earlier in the week, I had shown him the WDD Blue Fridays video and we had a little chat about it and made sure he had blue shirts he could wear, etc. I didnâ€™t think anything of it after that. Well, he apparently did. Because other than the ornament in the bag, I also had this:
Blue circle bead for my Belk bead bracelet (say that 3xfast!)
I automatically assumed that since it was a light-ish blue, it would represent BabyK on my bead bracelet. He looked at me and said â€œLook at it againâ€¦ what does the color look like?â€. I went dumb. I canâ€™t believe I didnâ€™t see it. He looked at me and said â€œItâ€™s almost the exact color of the Diabetes blue circle!â€. It was then it hit me. â€œOH! OMGOSH! THIS. IS. AWESOME!!!!â€
I have a wonderful husband.
I love him.
