31st Anniversary

Today was Hubby and my 31st Anniversary!  He left me a lovely card. He sent me a text message and left a message on my cell phone, singing to me ... "Happy Anniversary to you, Happy Anniversary to me,  Happy Anniversary to us, and now I better go!" LOL

I called him to wish him a Happy Anniversary and asked if he wanted to meet me for dinner.  He said he was going to cook me a steak dinner and fix salad as a surprise, but that could wait a day, and we could go out and enjoy a meal.  He had even picked up a good bottle of Merlot.

I had gone shopping and found a perfect card for him.  The first one I found, and it said, I Believe, and part of the message said... "because you are the best thing that has happened to me!"  I had to laugh, as
that is what Hubby says about himself to me!

I've been wanting a hair cut and style, so I walked in to the first place, and they had an opening.  5" shorter and layered, I feel lighter.

I met Hubby at The Steak House and surprised him with my hair cut.  It doesn't look that different, but now has a style!  I gave him my card.  We sometimes don't do cards, so this was a nice surprise for him, too.

We had a delicious steak dinner, toss salad, and baked potato with the toppings!  I had a strip steak smothered in mushrooms and he had one smothered with fried onions.

We went to dinner early enough that we had the room almost to ourselves.  That was so relaxing to sit and talk, without the distraction of other people around us.

What a lovely evening!
Then we came home to put 2 round bales in to the horse lots, with mud everywhere.  At least the rain had stopped.

You can take the girl out of the country but you can't take the country out of the girl.

Horses need to eat too!
