Friday 5 - Anniversaries

TGIF, amirite? For a work week that was actually a day short it sure has seemed long!  But it is, in fact, Friday and I am pleased. No big plans this weekend, although this evening will shall be attending Miss Personality's 7th birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese. The only thing to do there is just sink into the noise and let it wash over you like the tide.  But before that, how about a nice, soothing Friday 5 activity? Would you like that? I sure would, so let's do it.  This one is about Anniversaries. Apparently the author of Friday 5, scrivener, has parents celebrating their 44th wedding anniversary! Isn't that incredible? Well worth a celebration. Here goes...

1.What significant anniversary will you be celebrating sometime this year? April 1 is my 10 year anniversary here at work. That's slightly incredible to me :) Another thing that comes to mind is June 26, which will be the 9th anniversary of DR and I becoming betrothed. It was jokey, but I hold on to it :)

2. In your life, what is today the one-month anniversary of? month anniversary of the fourth Friday of the month? I gots nothin' here.

3. What is today the one-week anniversary of? Again...coming up short here. Apparently not so many noteworthy events happen in my life. Although of course every day is a gift ;-)

4. Sometimes the traditional wedding anniversary gifts seem a bit staid. If you had your way, what would be the right gift themes for the five years’ worth of wedding anniversaries? Okay, hadn't seen that list of traditional wedding anniversary gifts in awhile. So, so random.  Let's make the 5 years wedding anniversary the sexy lingerie anniversary. People might could use it by then, yes? And it is fun and impractical, as all good gifts should be!

5. Among your friends, who’s been married the longest? Now that I think of it, I seem to know a bunch of single people, people who delayed marriage, and people who are in second marriages. No one I'm really close to is setting any great endurance records just yet.  Blogging buddies or even casual dropper-inners, anyone want to claim the title? Let me know!

I hope you enjoyed this sentimental sort of Friday 5....I hope that you come back tomorrow for Saturday Scavenger Shots...I hope that you have a fantastic and celebratory weekend :)

I'm not in a place in my life where I really relate to the whole anniversary thing. I'm still in the under-a-year stage and we don't talk about that sort of thing.

We haven't done anything major since we got married.. sometimes flowers are enough... if he

Well my first anniversary is on May 21st, which is also the anniversary of the day that the world did not come to an end as predicted. Woot!

Ut-oh, no one month events, or really even one week.

I think that a good five year anniversary gift would be a night at a motel near the ocean! Or maybe that's what I want for my first year anniversary.

Honestly, I guess the people that I know now who have been married the longest have only been married for 10 years. That's kind of scary.

Hey, I'll be celebrating my 10 year work anniversary this year too! Mine will be May 31st. Wow, sometimes I feel like it really has been that long while other times I feel like it has only been a few years!

Secret: Yes, relationship sorts of anniversaries are nothing that needs to be made a big deal of prematurely.

Mrs: That is a good, long partnership! I'll bet everyday that you are together is a little celebration :)

Silly: I think that sounds like a perfect first anniversary gift for you and the man! I hope you get to do that.
I do wonder how many people of our generation and younger will be celebrating 50th anniversaries...

Tara: Isn't that amazing? I'm the same...sometimes I feel like I'm still new...and other times I feel like I've been here FOREVER.
