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

7th anniversary is Copper or wool, (i google searched) Maybe something made from either of those. I haven't thought of anything as yet but I'll get back to you. I think you're doing well that you've remembered in advance!DH has to be reminded or he forgets lol.

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.

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.

Ok then. Guess I'm off to return the rubber gloves and mop I just bought for you.

My favorite thing is to find little yellow sticky notes everywhere with a little short message on them. Jim places them wherever he knows I'll be that day....makes the fun last all day long as I keep finding them throughout the day. (We'll be married 7 years next month.) Congratulations!

Plan the day in accordane to what she likes and loves....even if you hate the things....this would get me going...oh and the sticky notes really aint a bad idea either!!! I hope you have a good day no matter what you do, but dont forget to tell us what happened!!

Oh, I get called wife, Ol' Lady, ect.....I dont mind it, atleast I aint getting called a few choice words!

Talking

Paul and I leave notes for each other all the time..

Kind of like the "new game" we're playing here.

I start a note and then a few days later
I'll find it with an added message on my desk.
I'll wait a few days and give it back to him. Back and forth it goes. Kind of silly but it's always so nice.

He just told me that he's kept every note and card that I've ever given him! Locked up in the file cabnet. I thought he threw them all away. I knew I kept every thing from him in my memory box, finding out that he's keeping everything too really made my heart smile. When he goes hunting next time he's going to give them all to me so I can re-read them. I'll have a blast remembering all the good times.

I like it when my husband introduces me as "my wife," but being called "the" wife was a pet peeve when I was married to my first husband. Every time he would introduce me as "the" wife, I would say, "The wife, the car, the dog." It sounds too much like a possession to me!

Getting back to anniversary gifts--I got my daughter and son-in-law something that I thought was really cute for their first anniversary. The first anniversary is paper and clocks. I found a jigsaw puzzle clock that really worked. I don't think they ever put it together, so I guess they would have rather had something else, but I thought it was neat, since it was both paper and a clock.

[QUOTE=Maidrite]ANd Never ever REFER to her As "THE WIFE" Women hate that. [/QUOTE]

LOL! It could be worse, I could introduce her as "My First Wife"

Actually I really got lucky when I found her. She's not a really romantic type, she hates both roses and Diamonds, never wears jewelry, would rather have a living plant than cut flowers and Valentines Day is when all the candy goes on sale

That's great cause I rarely remember Valenties Day (I know It's in February but other than that...) and am terriable at romance . She's been talking about a candy store in a small town in Northern California that makes the best divinity fudge in the world (and she's travelled the world). I'm going to see if I can get ahold of them and have a couple of pounds of it flown in for her

God Bless
