I never did a post on the wedding gift Mat gave me. Shame on me! In my defense, he gave it to me the night of our wedding and I wasn’t really posting during our wedding/honeymoon.
A long time ago, we were on one of our typical Saturday date days at the mall. Back when we were dating/engaged and both still lived at home, we usually went to Starbucks and then to the mall where we would get a Godiva truffle if we hadn’t used our free one yet for that month or maybe a See’s truffle if we had. Beyond that, we usually would just wander around. Sometimes we would stop in Brighton – this is another reason my husband is awesome, it doesn’t mind going into a jewelry store and letting me look. He is so patient and I love him for it.
Anyways, on one of those Brighton trips I saw a watch. It came in several colors, but I liked the white. I hadn’t had a working watch that I enjoyed wearing in years, and plus watches can be quite stylish! I loved this watch, but it had a price tag over $100, and I wasn’t going to spend that on myself out of the blue and didn’t want him to do it either.
Well, he remembered that I loved it.
I love it. In fact, in some ways it’s a bummer that I’ve been off because staying home or laying by the pool or at the beach doesn’t make for many opportunities to wear it. 🙂 But for date night I totally can!
