I was a little stumped on what to give him as an anniversary gift. Typically we don’t do ‘real’ gifts but this year felt like it needed to be commemorated. The traditional gift for the 10th anniversary is aluminum. Ok….who picked that one out? Aluminum? It feels like it should be something a bit more tangible. But aluminum it is.
Finally at the last minute I hit one something. A YETI cup! It was aluminum like and I can get it engraved and he would love it.
Edward said he couldn’t come up with anything aluminum so he went with gold…….lol. A gold American Express gift card that I can use at the outlet malls next weekend. Perfect!! And a very lovely card.
He also wanted to go to San Antonio and have dinner at the first place we ate at. Since we had planned a road trip to Brownwood with Susan to inspect her new (almost) house we decided to combine the trip. Friday on our actual anniversary we went out to dinner and home to spend some time together.
Saturday morning we loaded up the truck including Susan’s puppy Gracie for her first real road trip!
Gracie is an awesome puppy and we adore her! We love her enough that every once in a while I think we should get a great puppy but then I come to my senses. As fun as it is to watch her and Rudi play I know that we are cat people and not dog people.
We got to San Antonio and checked into the hotel and then headed for the holy grail……….Bass Pro! We had a lovely lunch and then he headed out to spend his birthday gift cards. Susan and I occupied ourselves in women clothes and jewelry. This might just be turning into one of my favorite stores too!
It was hot, hot, hot so we headed back to the hotel for a little dip on the pool before heading to the Riverwalk for diner.
It was nice getting there before dark and starting the Riverboat ride. It was warm but there was a breeze so it wasn’t too bad. And then it was off to Naked Iguana for a romantic dinner including margaritas! It’s great that we ate at a place that still exists and is named Naked Iguana! Lol!!
It was an excellent evening! We had great food, great company and a great time.
We are definitely going to plan a weekend there after football season to explore. Brownwood is nice town and Susan’s new house is very nice. It’s going to be great for her and Gracie. And even though we will miss her terribly we will still be seeing her often. There is a lot of stuff to do up there and I’m looking forward to many trip!
After all that it was the 5 hour trip home and that was the weekend. We had a wonderful time and I’m looking forward to every day of the next 10, 20, 30 years with my love. 🙂
