Next anniversary we will have one of these!
We got home from Chicago Monday night and frankly were still exhausted and recovering on Tuesday. We decided to lay low that evening since we hadn't spent much time at home the past week, still hadn't unpacked, and would much prefer cuddling at home than a night out. Jon brought home an anthurium plant and we each spent some time wrapping and prepping our gifts. 2 years is hard!! Last year I was on my game with the paper theme (I had budoir pictures taken and made into a beautiful leather bound book) but cotton was hard. Lame but I ended up getting Jon 2 pairs of Nike workout shorts, that probably aren't even cotton but spandex or polyester, a Yankee candle (he is funny about candles and only likes Yankee), and a new lamp for his office. Jon is really a thoughtful guy (hello he MADE me a clock last year since traditional gifts were clocks) and gave me some awesome pieces of clothing. Ever since dragging him to Target last winter, Jon is now obsessed with it and bought me lots of clothes from there for Christmas and now our anniversary. He bought me some cute tanks and shirts that will fit my belly and told me he was bummed he couldn't find any plastic plates to serve as the traditional "china" gift for 2 year anniversaries. He also got me this awesome resistance band home gym thingy... I know you must be thinking wow that is a little forward of your husband but I have been asking him to help me with workouts I can do at home, especially for after the baby comes and I won't want to go to the gym. Jon Hart...husband and personal trainer.
Last year we went back to our wedding venue to take some pictures but this year our backyard had to do...
1 year//2 yearThanks Pinterest for the idea! Hard to tell but we are holding our 1st year anniversary picture in our 2nd year pic. Next year can we teach our 6 month old to snap a picture instead of using a tripod??
Why is Jon way more fashionable than me?
We made dinner at home, took Ernie on a long walk, and read each other letters we wrote. We wrote letters on our wedding day and then again last year...it is such a special way for us to express our feelings and thoughts about the past year. I am already an emotional gal but add these prego hormones and there were lots of tears and hugging. We have a busy weekend with lots of family in town but may try to go out and celebrate one night!
We also gave each other Valentine's Day gifts too because we are going away next week. Since Valentine's is right after our anniversary and gifts tend to get cheesy, we decided to do something small. Jon got the cutest, softest plaid shirt from Target (once again he loves Tar-jay) that will keep me warm on our getaway :-). And I got Jon two board books from me and the baby...
(Baby Hart already has about 10 books!)
Before we even talked about trying for a baby, I knew what kind of crib I wanted, and Jon agreed with me. So last week when we found it for 15% off and free shipping on Wayfair, we ordered it. It came in 3 days later and this giant box has been sitting in our dining room. I happened to be in there the other day and read on the box that we have 14 days to report damage/missing pieces. I don't think we would have put it together for a while but I didn't want to be left with a janke-y crib so we (Jon) put it together. I'm not gonna give you any more details yet but it is gorgeous!! Very surreal seeing a crib in our baby room (but then again we were already given a basinett, baby Moses basket, bottles, swaddles, clothes, etc... we feel like we could basically bring this baby home today!).
Have a good weekend!
