A Wife Loved Like The Church

Top Ten Anniversary gifts

Posted on: July 27, 2010

Top Ten {Tuesday}This Friday is my five year anniversary {woot woot} and I thought as a very obvious subtle hint to my husband, I’d suggest what I think make great gifts:

1. A getaway weekend – Perhaps this is already a given since we are going away next weekend, but in my little crazy-busy-mom-of-two-toddlers-under-two world, planning a weekend alone with my husband has made me as excited as planning for my wedding.

2. Sunflowers – Thanks to Southern Living and Midwest Living, I have been day dreaming about big, beautiful sunflowers all month long. I’ve never gotten any and think they’d be the perfect rose substitute.

3. Pearl necklace – I really don’t have a reason for this other than, what girl does want a new necklace?

4. Ukulele – I’ve always had a hidden desire to be a musician and since Jonathan is a guitar playing guy, I thought it would be nice to have a ukulele along side.

5. Massage – Really, do I need a reason?

6. Pedicure – See above note.

7. Dinner at a French restaurant – I figure, if we can’t go to Paris, Paris can come to us. Or at least the food can.

8. Build me a mother’s room – I once read about having a mother’s corner. The thought of having my own personal area sounds wonderful. However, the only room in the house that is large enough for that is the laundry room {which I find rather ironic}.

9. Piano lessons – Because whether you want to admit it or not, Christmas is coming and I still need to learn 3 carols.

10. A leg lamp – This might be the hardest one to ever convince Jon of. But with living room windows overlooking the neighborhood – that just begs for a major award.

I’m going to have to remember this post and leave it up on the computer when our 4th anniversary rolls around…:D Minus the leg lamp. Haha.

Ha! My 6th anniversary is Saturday. I still haven’t “redeemed” my Mother’s Day massage, so that’s no good. I asked my husband for a study Bible. I’m not sure whether that’s too practical, but I need little else! We’re going out without our toddler, and that’s good enough for me!

What a great list… I’d love a massage, mani/pedi, even piano lessons! ๐Ÿ™‚

This is a fantastic list, Sarah! I love the idea of a Mother’s Room/Corner/Area ๐Ÿ™‚

LOL! Good stuff! I’m totally with ya on the massage! And you absolutely do NOT need a reason! HA! ๐Ÿ˜€

Yea for anniversaries and trips!! What a fun list of ideas too, I remember the leg lamp from previous posts-what fun!

Happy Anniversary!!! My FIL actually had a leg lamp at one time! It’s been a few years since I’ve seen it so I had forgotten about it. It was the spotlight of many jokes. Too bad it’s still not around or I would ship it to you!
