5 Years Since I Almost Blew It

Monday was the 5th anniversary of mine and Boyfriend's first date. You can read our love story and about how I almost blew it.

Monday morning I posted on facebook that it was the 5th anniversary of our first date and went on with my day. Around noon, the receptionist called me and said I had a delivery. I just knew it had to be from Boyfriend. I tried to walk to the front all nonchalantly and not smile.

For the first time ever, B got me flowers and had them sent to work!

Actually, that's not true now that I think about it.  He got me flowers my first mother's day. But I don't count that 'cause I was pissed I'd just birthed two of his babies and all he did was run up the street to Safeway. Yes I realize that makes me sound like a horrible person. I blame hormones.

I got a laugh out of the attached card because it said some stuff and then "the boys and I won't be the same without you." It was signed Boyfriends name and the Bois. I asked Boyfriend if he's trying to off me and what was up with the Boooooiiiis! 

We ended the night at Doofer's, the place of our first date. It wasn't intentional, we just wanted to watch the Seahawks game and Doofer's is the only bar where you can take kids.

At dinner I teased B and asked if he realized it wasn't our actual anniversary, just the anniversary of our first date. He got a sheepish grin and admitted he couldn't remember the date we'd settled on. I could tell he was a little embarrassed but I cut him off and said it was ok. We didn't become official until the end of December but we'd decided on the day of our 2nd date as our anniversary because otherwise it would have been our anniversary and then our birthday just a few days later.

We haven't even celebrated the last few years anyway because we have our anniversary, Christmas, our birthday and the boys' birthday all within one month. That's just too much!

I just realized our birthday is in exactly one month, I better figure out what to get him!
