Boy am I going to surprise Shane tonight for dinner!
Thankfully, I was able to push up my client schedule, thanks to some flexible clients, and had about 45 minutes to get everything in order.
Shane is in class until 7:00ish tonight, and he made dinner reservations for 7:30 for our anniversary. If I know my husband, I know that after a busy weekend and a day full of work + night full of class, going out would be the last thing he really wanted. He made the reservations because it was our anniversary. Simple as that. But I know he’d rather stay in and relax.
So, I played the trickster and headed out to Fresh Market to get his absolute favorite steak ever. It’s also the only time I’ll spend $15 on a steak. Ever.
This “gift” was also numerically convenient because the traditional 3rd wedding anniversary gift is leather.
Ok, fine. I’ll let you in on my thought process. But be warned, it’s a little twisted, especially for someone who hasn’t eaten beef or chicken in more than two years. Steak comes from cows, which are also where leather comes from. So…it’s leather. I know. It’s creatively sick. Moving right along…
Along with the steak, I also picked up the works: appetizers of spinach artichoke dip and chips, main course of aforementioned steak and a twice baked potato, and then a choice of chocolate cake or an éclair for dessert.
(don’t worry, I’ll eat whichever one he doesn’t choose )
I think this deserves a good wifey medal if you ask me.
And since a big steak isn’t my cup of tea, I subbed out his main course for one that I haven’t had in a very long time – sushi!
One thing I didn’t do? Cook the steak – because, you know, I wanted it to actually taste good for him
I also set out a my gift to him and a bottle of wine:
Turns out, he had set up his card and a bottle of wine for me to come home too! Who knows…it could be a two-bottle night! Kidding, kidding.
Hopefully this change of plans turns out well! I’ll let you know
Now it’s just time to wait until he gets home from class. Eek! I think I’ll occupy myself by catching up on all of your blogs
Have yourselves a lovely night, loves!
Which do you prefer: going out to a fancy dinner? Or keeping is casual in the casa?
