So last night was mine and Gabe's 3 year wedding anniversary, but also our anniversary from when we began dating back in high school.  This anniversary was a milestone...10 years together.  I have decided that I officially have the most wonderful hubby in all of the land!  We both agreed not to get anything for each other and that we would just go to dinner.  I chose steak, he chose Del Frisco's since neither of us have been there.
Yesterday, while I am at school, I get an email titled "Surprise" from the office.  I figured they were anniversary flowers.  Picked them up...beautiful orange roses and lily's!  Thinking this was my anniversary gift.  So sweet.  Early on in our relationship we decided not to do flowers too often since they are pricey and die just a short time later, so getting flowers yesterday was a nice surprise.  Love them!  They have already opened so much in one day.  I'll try to take a picture and post later.  Anyway, we get home, get ready for dinner.  Get in the car.  Off to Ft. Worth.  Gabe starts playing some music and says that I need to listen close because this is my anniversary card.  I was so confused.  Those who know me really well, know that this is not hard to do (to confuse me).  The song played, a man was singing a song I hadn't heard before.  At first I just thought "10 long years" and "when I first saw you in grey" were coincidences, I kept asking, "Who is this??"  "Just listen," was the reply.  Then he started singing about LA and Reese, Gemini's, and of course the little nugget.  That's when I knew this wasn't just any song, Gabe had a friend write and record a song for this very special occassion.  I was crying happy tears.  Probably one of the most sweetest things anyone has ever done.  Not to mention the maternity jeans he bought me and also the "Twilight" book that I can now read! (People have been talking about this book for so long, I am so excited to read it...and then see the movie).
I hope you are asking yourself, "so...what did Lindsay do for Gabe?"  Because this is where it gets good.  For this milestone anniversary, I decided to get him a card.  That's it!  Seriously.

I am forever indebted to my wonderful, amazing, caring, thoughtful, creative, loving, fantastic, fabulous Gabe!  I am so lucky to have such a perfect man in my life.

(Don't worry, I am thinking of something I can get him--it will just be a little belated)  It's hard being preggo and teaching.
