I need ideas for a 5-yr wedding anniversary. Relevant info: I'm not rich, or poor. She's 6-mo pregnant w/number 2. SoCal It's in mid-July. THANKS!!!

Skimpy black lingerie in about 2 sizes too small & then mention how big her butt has gotten? [}:D]

Move her to a non socialist state that can actually keep the lights on?

1st off, I'd have to agree w/ SteyerAUG. 2ndly, if that's not an option, take her to a nice romantic dinner and then spend the night in a Bed & Breakfast. Don't tell her what you're doing, just tell her to dress nice for dinner, and bring an overnight bag.

Steyr is at least headed in the right direction (improving the situation). Bob's got... issues. B&B is a good idea. I was also thinking about a harbor dinner cruise and weekend getaway in San Diego or Newport...

My wife highly recomends air conditioning, if you don't already have it. She says her only time being truly miserable was spending the third trimester in the summer heat, and that its worse than the actual birth.

I like the B&B idea.....candle light... lots of red and white roses... maybe even pour her a bubble bath.

OK practical and on a budget. Day Spa. Gets her out of your hair for most of the day. You are left free to clean guns, watch porn, etc. She comes home pampered as if you did it yourself and feeling indebted. Order in something nice but easy like Italian and let her thank you. A little candlelight will greatly offset the fact that you are eating dinner from take out containers.

Buy her a new AR!

Say you love her with crack cocaine.

OH, HOW LAST YEAR! This year, black tar heroine is all the rage! Seriously, how about a breast pump and a sexy nanny to help her around the house when the baby arrives? Or maybe a combination and you get her a sexy breast pumping nanny! Wow, just think of all of the countless hours you'd be watching that! [;)]

find a nice romantic dinner cruise and take her on that. nothing too fancy....but somthing fun that she will like. although she might get sea sick with the baby. then again maybe just a nice afternoon picknick laying in the sun remembering the ole'days might be just the thing she needs.

ditto on the AC, there's nothing worse than a cranky, hot sweaty pregnant woman with no place to cool off. you might want to do a dozen roses too.

Buy her [b]7 roses[/b] (5 red, 1 pink, and 1 white). On the card put: [i]"Thanks for five wonderful years, one beautiful child, and the one on the way."[/i] Trust me. [;)]

Damn, Cookie - that was smooth! You've probably got them lined up around the corner, eh?
Link Posted: 7/2/2003 8:07:49 AM EDT
Not at 41, but I can come up with some good stuff when I put my mind to it. I could tell tales... [;)]

DING! DING! DING! DING! We have a winner. I'd still do the B&B thing but this idea would really cap off a fine evening.

Damn that's smooth, Cookie! I'm glad your all th eway across the country, AND my wife will never SEE that it was your idea! Thanks!

You're welcome. I can give you a couple more ideas if you want 'em. They're guaranteed to have her eating out of your palm, or your money back. Be sure to tell her something like, "I just thought about what our anniversary means to me" when she asks where the idea came from. She'll be putty... [;)]

Try this. First, get a sitter for the child you now have. Buy a bottle of the non alcoholic "Welches sparkling grape drink" Preferably you, cook her a REAL nice candle light dinner with all the trimmings. The flowers "COOKIE" suggested would be best, in the form of a hand held bouqet, and dont forget to have a nice crystal vase to put them in after the tears have subsided, and place them in the middle of the table. During the dinner, play some of her favorite songs that you have burned to a CD for her to keep afterwards. After dinner take her to a movie she wants to see, theater, whatever. Then As you start to leave the movie or whatever, get down on one knee, in front of her and everyone else there and tell her how you feel about her, and the child that you 2 are about to have, and how you are blessed with them all. That should start the tears again. They love that stuff. The rest of the night is left up to you. So what do ya think?

OK, I'm impressed that some of you guys actually have a romatic streak. Some of the suggestions are really good. I liked the roses one. I always like a nice quite dinner, and the idea of going to a B&B is good. getting away just the two of you before the new baby is born would be great. You won't get to many times of that after the baby comes. Good luck and congrats.

When she brings you your beer, tell her you'll open it yourself to save her some trouble... After all it is your anniversary.

Remember... True romance doesn't have to involve a public display or large outlay of funds. To go along with my earlier suggestions (7 roses, and how to explain them), consider the following [b]cheap[/b] idea: Pick a soft love song that's easy to memorize, and has descriptive phrases in it. One that comes to mind is [u]Wonderful Tonight[/u] by Eric Clapton. Substitute her attributes (in this case, hair color) for those described in the song. Get a CD with your chosen song on it, or create one. Buy a bunch of cheap candles of varying colors/fragrances/sizes. When you're about to leave for dinner, get her situated in the car, then conveniently "forget" something and go back into the house. Quickly set the candles in predetermined spots throughout the living room (or whatever room you'll enter first). Set up your CD player on the proper track. In other words, [b]quickly[/b] get things ready for your return. Upon your return, ask her to give you just a moment, as you have a surprise for her. Rush into the house and light the candles. Open the door for her as you start the CD. Now, hold out your hands (invitation to dance) and serenade her softly as you slow-dance. It [b]will not matter[/b] if you sing poorly. She will be overcome with emotion at your thoughtfulness and the effort you put into setting things up and memorizing the song. There is only one kind of woman that this won't work on - a dead one.
