How We Spent Our 10th Anniversary

Happy Anniversary to us! We made it 10 years. Many people never thought our marriage would last this long! We both had the day off from work. Of course there was housework to be done and yard work too. I did the housework and hubby did the yard. I also spent some time relaxing and reading a book while hubby did the yard work. Dinner was simple. Hubby went to a local eatery for a fisherman's platter for both of us and brought it home. We dined out of the take-out box and had a nice cup of coffee afterwards. For dessert we had an ice cream cone. Now we are both on the computer. I am here at MyLot and he is playing Battlefield. But, we are next to one another. Later on we will head to the living room to watch something on the boobtube and then head to bed early. I have to work this weekend and need to get up waaaaay too early. Tomorrow night we are going out for dinner. Hubby will be turning 58 on Sunday. This will be a combo celebratory dinner. Tenth anniversary/birthday for a 58-year old. Our niece's birthday party is Sunday and it will be a costume party. My grandson and I will be dressing in costume. We are having a hard time convincing my hubby that he too should don a costume. TTFN!

Grats and Happy Anniversary. My wife and I have been married 30 years now. We have yet to really celebrate any anniversary of ours. We never celebrate much at all really other than typical holidays. To us it is just another day really. We have ate out etc a couple times for our anniversary. But like I said that was just another day. We try to get away ever so ofyten and if it falls on our anniversary then I guewss thats celebrating. Never plans. Sounds like you had a great day. Busy weekend with all this happening. Have a grand time and Happy b-day to hubby as well. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Congrats on being together for 30 years! That is wonderful GB. We usually go away for the weekend. But, we have our grandson with us and have to make plans around him. He is with his Mom this weekend though. Even so, I have to work the weekend so that leaves us no time for wandering off too far.

Happy Anniversary to you!! It sounds like you both had a great time. Anniversaries do not have to be elegant. In today's society, it is unusual for couples to be married for a decade. My husband and I have been married for 24 years. Some of those days, I could have killed him, but we worked out our differences. My parents have been married for 60+ years, so they are an excellent example to follow. I wish you both the best of luck and am sure that you will be married another 10 years.

Well Happy 10th Anniversary Butterfly! And may you and your Hubby have many more to come! I am glad that you enjoyed your day off! I hope that you enjoy your celebration tomorrow too. Today is my birthday and boyfriend is taking me out to dinner tomorrow to celebrate since he had to work today. I think you should convince Hubby to dress up too for the costume party. It sounds like it will be lots of fun too! Enjoy the weekend celebrations!

Happy 10th to you and your hubby. It sounds like a nice day was had by both of you but so sorry you have to get to work early tomorrow. I hope you can talk your husband into dressing in costume for the party like you and the grandson. Happy birthday to your hubby on sunday.
