We wouldn’t have even realized that it was our anniversary!

Yep, that’s right. We forgot our eighth wedding anniversary. Both of us. Completely.

Yesterday, after we got home from work (we carpool), Matt went to get the mail. Just as he handed me a card from my folks, he paused and asked the date. Before I could even answer, we both looked shocked at each other and laughed – it was our anniversary!

After we were done laughing (because in all honesty – with both of us oblivious to this holiday, there’s nothing to do but laugh), we wished each other a happy marriage and discussed our dinner plans. Should we go out and celebrate, maybe a nice steak dinner or our favorite lil’ Italian place?

Well, no. We were more than happy to stick with the dinner plans we made during our drive home: mac ‘n cheese (blue box variety) and mini corndogs. Ha ha ha. Sometimes we are simple folk.

However, now that we are well aware of this special occasion, we’re making plans for a fancy dinner this weekend. Maybe even outside of the house.

So, thank you, Mom, for sending us a card and, more importantly, the reminder.

Oh, and if you think you’ll get off just as lightly with your spouse or SO, think again. You cannot be prepared for the consequences you will face for such a stupid mistake. Nah, you’re better off remembering your anniversary date and getting a lil’ something special for the one you love. For us, the joke was enough.

I love you, Bonez!

    Ha – funny! We’re celebrating our 8th anniversary this year too, but I’m pretty sure we won’t forget. 🙂

    Keith and I forgot our anniversary one year when we were hiking for 10 days in the Adirondacks. We didn’t know what day it was, never mind what SPECIAL day it was. (Nevertheless, in retrospect it remains one of our favorite anniversaries, whichever day it turned out to be…)

    And our 32nd was yesterday.

    Happy Anniversary! With corn dogs!
