My turn 🙂  The gift I ordered for Chris arrived! It was only fair that he got diamonds too. LOL Well, that’s what the wedding gift anniversary theme is for the 10th (the modern list) and we’ve been following it since we were first married. We vary from year to year on whether we follow the traditional or modern route; it basically depends on what makes sense (i.e. Tin? I don’t think so).

He liked it 🙂

You heard right ladies and gents. My hubby surprised me with an early anniversary present since he’ll be away on business later in September.

Life list item crossed off: Own diamond earrings.

They’re PERFECT!

He even wrote a nice note to accompany the gift.

I’m a lucky girl

10 years strong!!  🙂

So my birthday was last Wednesday and between my busy schedule and my husband’s, my bday celebrations have been sporadic and get-them-while-you-can. 🙂 He hijacked me away from my computer to take me out to dinner at Baton Rouge (prime rib, wine, chocolate mousse) on Friday night. Saturday we played minigolf (see previous post about this life list item). And today, I’ve been Kindled (it’s still en route). 🙂

After reading lots of reviews and chatting with several people (including my poll on this blog), the Kindle is apparently the best fit for my e-reader needs (want to use it just to read, don’t need 3g or a keyboard). Who knew it would be so complicated?! 🙂  (omg am I sounding older than my 37 years right now??)

Looking forward to receiving it and giving it a whirl on my daily commute. I’ve already got my first ebook purchase planned – A Dance with Dragons – Book 5 of the Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin (currently still in hardcover and not commute-friendly at all).

Behold the apparatus for some new cooking adventures.

I received this on Friday, a Christmas gift from my brother Mark (thanks again!!) and I love it.

I’m very excited.

It’s one of those things I’ve always been interested in but probably never would have bought for myself.

It’s going to open up a whole new world of options for me. I’m already dreaming of stews and other warm, slow-cooked concoctions.

Perfect for busy days.

Stay tuned.
