The Weekend Can't Come Fast Enough!


It's been a long week. I'm ready for the weekend.

We have a wedding on Saturday and I'm excited for that. I've been in wedding withdrawal. This wedding is perfect timing too because our 2nd anniversary is on Sunday so we technically are getting a fancy dinner with free drinks. Doesn't get better than that.

We decided not to do any expensive gifts either. Our cap is $10.00. Yup, that's right, 10 whole frickin' dollars! We're rolling in dough here.

Any who, 2nd year is cotton. Have any ideas what I can buy for $10.00 that will keep with the theme of cotton? You all know I am not crafty so I will have to buy. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Oh my gosh... I can't believe you're coming on 2 years already! That's so crazy! Hm... cotton... what about a shirt? You can actually custom make one on vistaprint.com... :)

If you are on a budget I think it's great that you both said $10 bucks it is. You have each other and that's priceless! I didn't know 2 years was cotton. Cotton is cheap so that's good.

Faith said...

ooh thanks everyone for the ideas!

@Nini: Only amazing people get married in November ;)

@Kathy: Can't believe it has been 2 years already either! Time is flying! :)

@Frugalista: Yea, with Christmas around the corner and just coming back from vacation it just seemed smarter to not spend extra $$$. It is actually a little more fun trying to stick to the budget of $10. I hope we can both do it, haha :)

AWWWW...happy anniversary! i like you and your hubby's style...$10 gift limit - you can do A LOT with that or make something. I'm a horrible gift buyer, so no suggestions from me :( good luck and have fun at the wedding!!!

Nikki said...

I love the $10 cap.. It makes it for an interesting, but fun gift!! I am definitely not the crafty type, but I can't wait to see what you guys decide!!

Tami-scramble said...

Wow wow wow! I can't believe you are coming up on 2 years. Doesn't it feel like you've been together forever AND the wedding feels like it was yesterday AT THE SAME TIME?! I love that.

As far as ideas- what about a bag of cotton-candy and a sweet card? :)

redwhitebride said...

Counting the days with you lady :).

I am so boring at buying gifts, I would buy a scalf with the $10, because I like them and one cannot have enough :).

Faith said...

OMG! Tami! Hubs LOVES cotton candy! That is frickin' brilliant! That is what I am doing! Love you so much right now!!!

Mrs. Pancakes said...

Oh I love that picture...your back is gorgeous! Mmhm cotton... I was going to say shirt but that might be too obvious! Either way enjoy the romantic evening!

Elizabeth and Kyle @ Love Is the Adventure said...

How about a silly pillowcase? I bought Kyle a Superman pillowcase and he loved it.

Amy said...

Monique said...

Sarah @Newlywed and Decorating said...

I'm horrible at gift ideas for men. Sorry! But have a fabulous weekend and anniversary with the hubby!

Alida said...

I was thinking cotton candy! But a t shirt would be great too.

Megan said...

Happy early anniversary! I have NO idea what to get that is cotton, but I can't wait to see what y'all do!!

What I Did Today said...

I loved that anniversary! Happy 2nd to the both of you! Woot! I got Tony a shirt that year and he got me pajamas. The 4th is even cheaper: fruit! :)

Love & Tangles said...

Happy Anniversary! I like that way of celebrating! Sounds like us, tee hee hee. I say get some cotton candy AND a cute shirt.

Meg said...

Just found your blog and really like it. I hope you enjoy your time together! The best thing about spending only 10 bucks on a gift is that more focus has to be put towards time together, making it extra special because it's less about the gift and more about each other.

Lil' Woman said...

Happy Early Anniversary!!
You can get him a shirt or some funny socks. He looks like a man that would enjoy weird socks. :)

Big Man and I will be celebrating our dating anniversary this weekend

Rod and Alex - aka: "Rolex" said...

Happy Anniversary to you guys! The spending cap is an awesome idea! There is definitely room to get creative! maybe make a super-special dinner? Although I don't know how that would incorporate cotton...
Have a fabulous weekend!!!

Nancy said...
