no 7-year itch here

i'm referring to, of course, wan-niversary 7.0.

this happened:

and you know you were hoping for this:

for our dinner out with the girls at ruth's chris - the pasadena outlet of our wedding dinner venue - i busted out a new dress that was super comfy and will likely see lots of use in the next few months.

the traditional anniversary gift for the 7th year of wedded bliss is either wool or copper.  WTF was i supposed to do with that when i just wanted to give the hub a new bottle of cologne?  but you know me - i'm pretty resourceful.  so while what he got inside his gift bag appeared to be a pair of wool socks, when he pulled them out the bottle of cologne was stuffed way down into the bottom.  

as for my gift?  i don't give a crap about traditional, especially when it comes packaged in a pink hello kitty gift bag and sports lululemon hangtags.  i was really stoked to pull out a whole outfit perfect for running in soCA "winter" - a pair of runder unders, a half-zip u-turn pullover, an all-sport bra, and a cool racerback top.  i'm super stoked for my new gear, i just know it's gonna make me run faster.

also, i'm pretty excited that our CA reception venue, which shut down a few years ago, appears to have been bought and is being readied for a grand reopening sometime next month.  it'll definitely be the perfect place to have a date night in the new year.

happy anniversary, love.  this is one fun ass ride, and i can't wait to see where it takes us next.

squeezing in all the sightseeing

this was our NYC home for a whole week: it was one of only a few hotels that i could find that offered two beds in a room rather than, say, ...
