So, I woke up this morning and completely forgot that it was my anniversary.
I called my husband after I dropped the princess diva-queen off at school, and I didn’t even say Happy Anniversary or anything.
But, neither did he…so clearly he forgot too, right?
Then, I’m at work and my phone notification pings and I see that he posted some really nice words about me on Facebook.
So, of course I did what any loving wife would do – I immediately reciprocated and posted even nicer words about him, with a picture of our wedding day and everything. Even-Steven.
Now, we never really exchange gifts on our anniversary, so it’s not like I forgot to get him a gift, but me, obsessive-controller-planner-of-every-second-of-EVERYONE’s-life, me? I forgot our anniversary?
Who does that?
Now, in an effort to satiate my own guilt, I’m planning to make him a big fancy dinner and act like I was totally just waiting for him to “remember” first.
Well, ok, in all honesty, I’m making meatloaf for dinner. That just screams, “I’m sorry I forgot the anniversary of our public declaration of love and commitment,” doesn’t it?
Meatloaf is powerful stuff. Maybe I’ll serve it with some wine.
Speaking of the happiest day of my life, here’s one of my favorite pictures from the day. This was taken during the last dance of the evening, and we were dancing to our song.
It really was a great day, and it’s been an even better eight years. Don’t tell him I forgot our anniversary, ok?
Let’s talk about muffins instead.
We’ve been on a bit of a muffin-kick around here lately. My girls have grown tired of the usual weekday breakfast rotation so I’m trying to mix things up a bit for them. We started with the pumpkin cream cheese muffins, then the cranberry walnut muffins, and this week we tried these – snickerdoodle muffins.
As far as muffins go, the recipe was very easy and straightforward, the only extra step was that you have to roll the batter in a cinnamon-sugar mixture to give it the signature snickerdoodle look and taste.
Huge hit. HUGE, huge hit. The girls loved them. In fact, they’re almost gone already.
Hope you love them. Enjoy!
