Cinco de Mayo

Yesterday was cinco de mayo and mine and Adam's 3 year anniversary.  It's kind of funny to think that we picked May 5th to get married and then a year later both of us becoming Spanish teachers!  Funny stuff.

I looked up the traditional gift for 3 years and it was leather, which was perfect because I knew exactly what I could get Adam.  For a while Adam wanted a front pocket wallet but has never bought himself one.  To be quite honest, I think he forgot he wanted one.  So...off to Fossil I went to get my hubby a genuine leather front pocket wallet.  Needless to say, when I gave it to him, he loved it and then remembered how much he wanted one.

I also wanted to do something kind of different for him...so I ordered 3 cupcakes to be delivered to our house.  One that had, "I love you", one that had, "5-5-07", and one that had, "AHE" (our initials) on it.  He really liked those too and they were very yummy!  But, can I just take a minute and speak my heart?  Having a joint account has its perks, but when, ahem, your husband constantly looks at the account, it takes the surprise and suspense out of everything!  Oh well, he still liked them. 

To my surprise, Adam came home with 2 dozen beautiful roses and a very sweet card for me.  We also went out to my favorite restaurant, Olive Garden, for dinner.  A huge thanks to Adam's mom for watching our sweet Leah while we went to dinner.  Yesterday was great!  Here's a picture of my roses and the cupcakes (excuse the bite taken out of one of them...Adam couldn't wait).

Thank you for a wonderful 3 years!  You are my everything and it is such a privilege to be your wife.  I love how you love me and I love watching you love Leah.  Having the title of Mrs. Adam Hamilton is such an honor and having you by my side in everything brings so much joy to my life!  I love you with all my heart and I am so excited to see what the next 50, 60, or even 70 years have in store for us!  2 are always better than 1!

Happy 3 Years!!! Sounds like you had a wonderful anniversary.
And, how weird is it that we celebrated our 3 year a couple weeks before you and also chose leather over lace. And, I got John his leather gift from Fossil too! Funny!!
