Anniversary Gift = Complete Fail!

If you're reading this give yourself a pat on the back... You made it to Friday!  I don't know about y'all but, it's been  bit of a long week for me & I'm glad that it's Friday && in a few short hours, the weekend will start!

As you probably know, Tuesday wasn't only Valentine's Day but, it was also mine & Matt's 3 year anniversary!  I was really looking forward to our date night as we haven't been on a true date in a while.

Once we were home from work & freshened up to leave for dinner, we exchanged gifts.  Well, I got my gift from Matt.  You see, I thought I had ordered Matt's gift in plenty of time.  No, I didn't!  It came in on the 15th & then after forgetting it at work he finally received his gift on the 16th! 

While Matt had a funny Valentine's card & sweet/sappy anniversary cards to open this is what my love gave to me...

I received these at work & they smell wonderful!

Pat Green's Dance Halls & Dreamers book!  I've wanted this book for quite a while but, never would buy it for myself.  It's a fun book about Texas Country artist & the fun dance halls in the state of Texas!  My plan is to take motorcycle rides & visit all of them!

Family picture!  :)  Please excuse our child's mess!

We went to dinner & enjoyed delicious Mexican food at Joe T Garcia's
& amazing Sangria Margaritas!

I finally remembered to bring Matt's gift home on Thursday & I was excited for him to open it!

& this is how excited he was once he figured out what it was...
Let me just say that this face is NOT the face of him excited to pull The Man Can out of the bag!
I found this gift idea from Giuliana Rancic's Fab Fit Fun website & fell in love with it!

Needless to say, I will be returning this gift... yes, I said RETURNING this gift & getting him something else.

I absolutely love my gifts but, I can't believe that after 3 years of being together I could buy a gift that was SO off for Matt!  I should have known because he's not much of a foo foo guy.  As he explained, he uses 2 in 1 Shampoo/Conditioner & bar soap... doesn't get much more basic then that!  Geez!  Maybe next year I can redeem myself!

I hope y'all have a great weekend!  I'm hoping to get some DiY projects done if the weather will cooperate!  We'll see!
