Yesterday Jim and I celebrated 10 years of marriage! Wow! What does one do to celebrate? Many go out for dinner - some may even take a trip! I think what is important is to something that both of you really want to do.
For us that meant staying home. Wait! Dana, don't you always stay home? Yes, but there's a twist. A good friend, Beth, took the kids to her house :) I brought a nice dinner home. I took off the plastic table cloth that is always on my dinning room table, placed the beautiful tulips that Jim sent me, and we ate and relaxed like adults. We had 2 hours of just us time. (thanks so much Beth!)
I realized during the evening that night was also frugal! I brought home Olive Garden restaurant. Jim and I find it more relaxing to eat at home where it's private. Because I brought the food home there was no tip and no need for beverages. I probably saved about $12. The meals are so large at Olive Garden that we have left overs for today. Yeah!
So, Happy Anniversary, Jim. It was a wonderful evening (wink, wink)
