OK so Brent and I argued and fought and bickered and finally resolved to go to NYC for our 5 year anniversary trip.
Brent wanted to do something different and new and adventurous. I like knowing where we're going and what to expect when we get there. I was TERRIFIED to go to another country. I'm doing everything I can to make it fun and romantic and exciting. Brent put major emphasis on it being SPECIAL and so I'm doing everything I can to make it SPECIAL.
We're flying (instead of driving). We're staying in the same hotel we always stay in (because its less expensive). But, we aren't going to any of the same boring places we normally go. We aren't even buying the NY pass because we're not going to a bunch of the places we'd use it for. We're going on a romantic harbor cruise, we are going to a couple resturants cited Most Romantic in NYC and we're going on a carriage ride in Central Park. All these things are super-romantic and super expensive but we haven't done any of it before and I REALLY want to make an impression about how wonderful this trip is gonna be for us for years to come. After all -- its our 5th year of marriage. That's a BIG deal. Its not 10 or 15 or 25 or whatever but its a little big one :-)
So I ordered a small, pretty romantic present for us. He'll like it but it only cost $20. Beside that idk what in the world to give to him.... He ordered some kind of $130 lingerie type present for me that he is so excited about but what in the world do you give a man for his anniversary / valentines beside lingerie?! I can't think of anything that's what I'd really want to do.... idk!
