Here’s some 10 year anniversary trivia for you:
- What is the 10th anniversary traditional gift?
- What is the 10th anniversary contemporary gift?
- What is the 10th anniversary gemstone?
- What is the 10th anniversary color?
- What is the 10th anniversary flower?
I was zero for five on that quiz. In case you’re as clueless as I am, here are the answers:
- tin or aluminum
- diamond jewelry
- diamonds or sapphires
- silver or blue
Well, there were no diamonds, sapphires or daffodils involved in our celebration, but it was still a great night.
We decided to hang out with this trio. . .
. . . for a performance of this:
“The classic Dickens tale told through uproarious song parodies of your favorite Broadway show tunes will leave you rolling in the aisles! This production is a grander reprise of our 2005 Smash Hit. A Broadway Christmas Carol is fast becoming the new Charlotte holiday tradition.”
If you’re in Charlotte, you’ve got two more nights to check it out!
It was FREEZING cold and sleety/rainy outside (the snow is now supposed to be coming TONIGHT) but thanks to my hot date, it was nice and cozy inside the small little theatre in the round where the show was being performed. The show did not disappoint and turned out to be all we hoped it would be. When it was over, the weather required that we c0me home and enjoy some hot chocolate. . .
And now to answer the question on all of your minds—why in the world am I blogging instead of spending the rest of the evening with my husband of TEN YEARS? Allow me to show you Exhibit A:
I’ve been trying for the last ten years to convert Patrick to my “night-owly” ways. I was actually pretty impressed with his efforts tonight—he made it until 11:30 pm, and finally passed out while watching Matt Damon read the Declaration of Independence! (What? You don’t listen to a reading of the Declaration of Independence on your anniversary?) Now that he’s asleep, I changed the channel to The Holiday. (Oh, come on. You don’t watch a Jack Black movie on your anniversary either?)
Thanks for the last ten, babe. I honestly can’t imagine how I could have managed without us together. And I think we make some pretty darn cute kids too. (And now I’ve got to either carry him upstairs or try to get him to wake up and walk up himself—with the snoring going on right now, the first option might be easier!)
*Stay tuned till sometime early next year when we’ll go on our big anniversary TRIP— to an undisclosed tropical location!
