We skipped the hotel downtown this year, but visited our "honeymoon" restaurant, Bandera, and our "anniversary" restaurant, David Burke. Oh Lord. As my mother-in-law put it, I'm officially a David Burke snob!
I gave Andy a gift card and, since the second anniversary is the "cotton" anniversary, a cotton dishtowel:
I packaged it in a leftover bag from our wedding party gifts that I filled with cotton balls.
|BTW, I totally drew the exact same tree image on his card last year.|
I thought that I was so clever for this, but all that Andy said was, "What are we going to do with all of these cotton balls?" Package Fail.
Andy gave me the greatest gift of all for our anniversary -- He hung the shelves in the newly painted laundry room! (Cue harps and angels!)
Now I just have to organize it. Aye! Aye! Aye!
We spent our actual anniversary watching the clock on the Tribune Tower and thinking, "What we were we doing right now?" while enjoying the baptismal celebration of Andy's cousin's daughter at the Trump Hotel.
