Yesterday was Drew’s and my fifth anniversary and we had plans to go out tomorrow night to celebrate, but I wanted to do something special for him and celebrate on our actual anniversary, too, so I surprised him with a night out and we had such a good time. In the morning, he gave me a beautiful bracelet and a gift certificate for a massage, which was all a surprise since we don’t usually do anniversary gifts, and I told him that his gift “hadn’t arrived yet,” which was true. Then, that evening, our sitter arrived at about 6:30 and he said, “Oh, I think there’s a mistake?” And I said, “No! your gift has arrived!” And I whisked him away for some drinks and dinner. It wasn’t super grand or anything — we actually ended up just hanging out at a neighborhood bar we like a lot that has a little patio where we sat and watched the sunset and had cocktails and sandwiches — but Drew seemed to appreciate the little surprise and it felt so luxurious to get a night out knowing we’d be going out again in two days. Plus, there were oysters.
Tomorrow night, we’re going out again — this time to a real dinner and then to listen to music. Other than that, I don’t think we have any solid plans for the weekend. Maybe we’ll take Jack to Coney Island. When we took him last year, he didn’t care for it but a year makes a big difference in the life of a toddler. Which reminds me: Jackson has hit a couple milestones this week; he is finally riding a trike with finesse, AND he’s going to the bathroom multiple times a day, usually without any prompting from us (he just says he has to go and that’s it). I’ve been bribing him with dinosaur gummis and they seem to be doing the trick. Very exciting stuff in the Condellberry household.
Anyway, happy weekend! What are you all up to?
