Okay, so I don't take very clear self-portraits early on a Sunday morning after the house imp has denied us sleep.
Look at the pretty sparkly things in my ears :) Yesterday was my and Andrew's 9th anniversary. The anniversary of our marriage, not our wedding. You may remember back in June I said we were celebrating our anniversary - that was our wedding anniversary. We were married in City Hall in Sakura City, Japan in September 1997 and then had a wedding service with all our friends and family in June 1998 when we returned to North America.
Anywho, the pretty things in my ears...
I am a horrible person to buy presents for - Andrew will attest to that. He asks me what I want and my most common response is, "I don't know." I mean, there are little knitting-related things I would like, but never in a million years would Andrew get something like that for me. I think he thinks I spend to much time knitting anyway (go figure). The problem with this time of year is our anniversary is in September, my birthday is in November, and then Christmas slams into you before you know it. I just can't think of that many things I want! So, after a minor argument about this the other day, I started thinking about presents, and I decided that I really wanted a pair of nice earrings that I could wear all the time and not even know they were there.
So, after celebrating our anniversary with a joint Platelet Pheresis donation, and a lunch at Don Pablo's (where I inadverantly blew my points for the day - who knew a bowl of chicken soup could have 580 calories and 38 grams of fat?!!?), we went to the Macy's, where they were having a huge jewelry sale (50% off, then an extra 20% off if you donated $5 to their heart health charity drive)... and after perusing many pairs of gold hoops, I was enchanted with the ones I'm wearing - very small hoops with even smaller diamonds in them.
I feel so pretty!
And better yet, I can't even feel that they are there!
Thank you, Andrew.
