Happy Anniversary to Me

Today is my wedding anniversary.

One year ago today, I sat in the bathroom unable to believe what I was seeing, a positive pregnancy test.

I was pregnant with Fisher. Since it was a HUGE surprise for me, our anniversary last year was overshadowed by the fear of having two small children.

This morning, there was another surprise in the bathroom.

No, I am not pregnant.

On our wedding night, Doug had our hotel room covered in rose petals. Today, it was our bathroom.

Considering we were up most the night with Fisher, it was a really nice surprise to have all the sweet smelling rose petals and a really cheesy note from Doug written on the mirror.

When Barrett came into our bathroom as I was getting ready, he yelled, "Uh Oh, broke flowers, big mess!"

He was so upset about the mess, he grabbed a few rose petals and went running to tell Gigi about the mess.

This evening when Doug and I came home from dinner, I was changing into my jammies, and Barrett came into the bathroom.

He obviously got over the mess when he found a reason why the rose petals were fun to have all over the place.

He really was proud of himself when he realized he could attack Gigi with his roses...

I'm sure he was just telling Gigi how much he loves her.

Even though Doug can drive me crazy at times, I am really lucky to have a husband who loves me enough to not only talk Glenda, the balloon lady, into tearing apart roses to make the petals he needed, but he also had to ask a neighbor to store the rose petals in their refrigerator. Apparently, he made a mad dash over there last night to get them without me knowing.

This might not be a big deal to some of you who have overly romantic husbands, but for Doug this was WAY out of his comfort zone. :)

I guess I should do something for Father's Day now!

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't ever see Alan doing the whole rose petal thing for Dorothy! I think what Doug did was awesome...but he still owes you a Saturday for the Wal-Mart day !
