10th Anniversary Dinner!! Wow was i spoilt !!

Matt and I celebrated our 10th Anniversary a few weeks back. I will tell you just how far he went to spoil me and make me feel so special. Ladies you may want to show this post to your man.

I awoke the morning of our anniversary to breakfast in bed. I then proceeded out to the living area where I was handed an envelope. It was like a deja vu. The last time he handed me an envelope, it contained an itinery for the day which included tickets to Melbourne leaving a few hours later, to stay with my good friend Natasha Burns lol. I hadn't met Tash before in person, so my husband and her had conspired together to send Gracie (a few months old at the time) and myself to meet her all the way in Melbourne. I live in Nth Queensland. Anyway back to the Anniversary. So that was running through my mind when he handed me this envelope. I sat there and looked at him and said 'what have you been up to'. He just smiled and told me to open it. This is what it contained.

And the next page said. 'Have a fabulous day and remember, you will need to be home by 5pm for the next part of your special day.'

Then it had two maps inclosed for me to find my way around the city to the selected shops.

So To cut a very long story short, i did all those things and was pampered and got home and ready by 5.30pm. Before long a limo came up my drive way to pick me up. I hopped in the limo and no one was in there with me. No hubby. So where was I going? Who knew?

The limo took me to the park I was married in 10 years earlier. And who do you think was waiting for me there? You guessed it. My very special and thoughtful husband. He opened my door and took me by the hand. He then walked me down the aisle again to the same music on our special day. We walked up into the gazebo in Anzac park where we had signed our lives away to each other before God Almighty 10 years before.

When we reached the top of the gazebo there was a table, all laid with roses, and the works. Matt had hired to chefs to prepare a three course meal for us for the evening. Just him and me in a park at night. (and of course the chefs lol). How romantic is he? We then went back to the limo and we ended up at the motel we spent our first night in as husband and wife. Even had chosen the exact same room. We got there and when i walked in i was so overwhelmed. There were rose petals everywhere. (see below)

So i won't go into the rest, but needless to say it was lovely and the spa was amazing. My parents had our children for the evening and it was such a treat. When we got up the next morning we enjoyed a buffet breaky and then spent the morning together and it was great. If you ever read this babe, thanks a million times over for your thoughtfulness. I love you. oxoxo And i am so very thankful to be yours. ox

Hubby in Spain!

Just thought i would come on here again lol. I just went to Natasha's blog and she had a pizza recipe on there. So i decided it was time for me to have one lol, now at 10pm at night. Crazy but you should see it. Melted cheese and the works. So just sitting here waiting for it to cook and was thinking about my very precious hubby Matt. He left on Tuesday for Spain. We own an Audio Production company, and his supplier in Spain, offered him a free trip over there to check out there latest speakers. Crazy as the time it took to get there was days, and he has to come all the way back in just over a week. Back on Wednesay our time. I miss him so much already. Here is a picture i took of Matt and the boys last weekend up at the range near where we live.
Matt called me from Tokyo, then Amsterdam, them Madrid, then finally he made it to Valencia Spain. What a long trip. He travelled well up until the last flight from Madrid. He has felt crook for days now. Poor darlin. Anyway, will post some photos from his trip when he returns. Ok Pizza nearly done now, and ahhhhh the aroma. talk soon. ox
PS. Don't forget to join my giveaway now will you? Ends July 12th on my birthday. ox
