Darling Husband and I have talked about going to Napa. But, I don’t think it will be in the cards this year because of money. I think that we would go next summer though.

My secret wish is that he’ll get a replica of my wedding bouquet made. I’d LOVE that.

@tinylittlebird:  I don’t either! Especially somewhere like Vegas.

We both wanted to go to Paris but we have a free 2 night stay at our wedding hotel we’re going to take advantage of instead. We’re going to have a nice dinner and relax for the weekend. We already started planning a Paris/London trip for our 2 yr anniversary.

I’d love for him to get a replica of my bouquet but I’d need to write him an email with the florist’s # and explicit instructions for that to happen.

Love this thread – mostly because none of my dreams are likely a reality this year but its fun to dream right?

Gift:  I’d love it if Darling Husband got me a second wedding band.  I know I probably haven’t earned it yet but I’d love it.  OR he could get me the LV purse I have been drooling over.

Trip:  We’ve discussed going to Napa – it would be perfect and beautiful.  Probably too expense for this year though.  I would also love a weekend trip to Chicago or Toronto.

Darling Husband doesn’t know it but I am getting him a rolex for our 1 year anniversay/his 31st birthday gift.  I really wanted to buy him a rolex for his wedding gift but it just wasn’t in the cards.  I know which one he wants and have the jeweler on notice!  Also, his 30th birthday was 3 weeks after our wedding – we both felt quite poor at the time and he asked that I not do anything big.  To this day I feel terrible for not going with my gut and doing something so I am making up for it this year.

Also hoping for another wedding band for our 1st anniversary.  I don’t think I am going to get it, mostly because my H thinks what I have is perfect and it is too soon for another expensive piece of jewelry.  But still holding out for a surprise….

The 1-year wedding anniversary is a bit far from now, but for our first dating anniversary, Fiance did something pretty special that I thought would be nice to share. 

He picked up a photo/huge matteboard for people to sign. He carried this thing all over the place, secretly, I may add, while I was in class and got signatures and well wishes for a happy life together from all manner of people. 

That night he took me to the restaurant that we went to on our very first date. He had arranged with them ahead of time to have this presented to me with a bouquet of flowers (roses and orchids) that he had picked out earlier. It came with 2 glasses of champagne to celebrate. I couldn’t help but cry I was so happy.

@tinylittlebird:  Ya, I like the symbolism too…and I mean I’d really just like 3 sparklers on my finger! 🙂  DH loves how my ring looked with a band on each side so I am going to quietly hold out hope – but I’d be more than happy to accept it as a push present in a few years! 🙂
