Happy Anniversary!

Yesterday was William and mine 4th anniversary! It feels like it's been so much longer than that (as in I've known him forever) and yet also like it went by in a blink of an eye. We agreed to not spend any money on each other since we're saving for a list a mile-long of house stuff. But I still wanted to do something small. I've seen this idea all over craft blogland and Pinterest. Quick sidenote, if you're not on Pinterest, go. But be warned it will suck your life time away.  So here's what I did: a 52 things things I love about you booklet.
  • deck of 52 playing cards (I also used the 2 jokers for my front and back cover)
  • 2 metal book rings
  • some way to write on the cards
 What I did:
  1. I started by punching holes in all the cards using one card for my template.
  2. I used this lovely blog's template for my cover and back plate.
  3. Then I just created text boxes in word and typed out 52 things I love about William.  
  4. I printed it on sticker paper, cut them out, and slapped one on each card.  You could easily print them on regular paper and glue them.  Or print on mailing labels. Or just hand-write directly on the cards.  Whatever suits your fancy.
  5. Then clip all the cards together and give to your sweetie.  It's a fun little thing he can look back at when he's having a rough day. :)
I was going to write out my list of 52 things, but then I realized that's just for him.  So here's just a few of the things I wrote:

We had an amazing dinner at Kofusion which is where we had our first date and where he introduced me to the wonderful world of sushi. Yum. Then we went all crazy and went to Target. Wow, are we old married folk or what? Thanks to my sister who watched Owen while we were gone. And I literally mean watched as in watched him on the video monitor since I put him to bed before we left. :) 

*ETA - he did wake up once for her, so I do want to credit her for getting my wiggle worm back to sleep.


  1. Very funny! Don't forget that I also picked him up once and put his pacifier back in. That was hard work!

  2. Oh yes, I edited to add that.

    But no really, thanks a lot! It was very nice to eat a dinner with no one hanging on me or trying to get in bites between feeding him!
