My Wedding

My 7th Anniversery is coming up in a couple of months, and thinking about what to get the wife, a warm and fuzzy memory of our wedding came creeping back to me.

I say warm and fuzzy because I was still pretty much gassed from the bachelor party the night before and had it not been for the photographer with a video camera I doubt I'd remember as much as I do.

The one thing I do remember though, and still don't understand why the pastor wanted this, is the pastor asking me to say something that now seems very silly.

He said "Repeat after me"
So I said "After Me, After Me, After Me"

Maybe it was just our Pastor... I dunno.



God Bless

Ok......I'm not one who ever appreciated the whole traditional gifts that go by the number of years your married. But since we'll be celebrating our 10th this coming May......Diamonds do sound wonderful . Especially since I absolutely love jewelry. Take her out to a really nice dinner and present her with a lovely piece of jewelry. Take note what she likes though. If your not sure ask her best friend and tell that friend mums the word. Adding a little love note will sweeten the package.

Copper and Wool huh? Hmm... Maybe I'll buy her a box of Scrub Buddies (Copper Wool) and kill two birds with one stone

Actually, it would probably be three birds if you include my resulting funeral too ha ha

Just make the day extra special for the two of you.
Dedicate the day to her. Take her for a long walk
followed by a nice lunch or dinner somewhere, maybe a movie.
Hold her hand, kiss and hug twice as much as you normaly do.
Smile at her. Look in her eyes and tell her how much you still love her
and that if you had it to do over again, you'd marry her in a heart beat.
Gifts are great but memories are even better.

Have fun!! And congrats on 7 years of love.

Wink

ANd Never ever REFER to her As "THE WIFE" Women hate that. They always like you to listen to them, I MEAN REALLY LISTEN TO THEM. I know sometimes this can be HARD, But it is very Important and Then after all the other things listed Take Her "SHOPPING" , Go with her, Hold her tight, and EVEN kiss Her , Women need this ! I just got lucky and Barbara doesn't need that kind of stuff!




Truth is THEY WANT YOUR TIME AND ATTENTION, and of course MONEY DOESN'T HURT LOL . I LOVE BARBARA and I LOVE YOU ALL HERE AT DISCUSS COOKING REMEMBER THAT !

I like being called the "wife". Can't stand it when anyone refers to their spouse as " my old man or my old woman".

OK..here's how it works in the Navy:

An enlisted man and his woman
A Chief and his wife
An Officer and his Lady

I never did make it to being His Lady but he introduces me as his first wife...

You made me spit tea on my keyboard with that one. LMAO!! Why not get her 7 of whatever colour rose strikes your fancy? Or buy her 7 different scents of massage oil? I personally think that taking her to dinner and handing her a gift certificate for a spa treatment would definitely say I love you.
