Has anyone seen the ads for the new movie starring Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones called "Hope Springs"?  I think it looks pretty funny, and want to see it when it comes out.  I ran across this about anniversay gifts over the years, and sad to say after 15 years of marriage can totally relate!

I do have to say that I don't agree that an appliance isn't a good gift.  If it's the high end refrigerator I've had my eye on, but don't really need, I wouldn't be complaining :smileywink:  My dh does either really good or really bad, doesn't see to be a middle ground.  I've learned to be very specific over the years when he asks me what I would like.

The only reason my dh knows it's our anniversary is because we got married on his birthday!HA We don't celebrate our anniversary, birthdays or Valentines' Day. We get everything we want during the entire year. There's really nothing left. I don't care for flowers, candy or jewelry and he's not into the typical "man" gifts.

We do celebrate the childrens' birthdays and Christmas of course.

That movie looks very funny! I adore Tommy Lee Jones.

We usually don't do much for birthdays but whoevers birthday it is gets to pick the restaurant for dinner. On big anniversaries we do something special like a cruse for 25th & 30th, on 35th we took a trip to Vegas. We celebrated our 36th this April.

My hubby learned long ago that no gift is better than something for the house unless it's my suggestion. We are hit & miss on anniversary/birthday gifts. Some years we buy each other something & other years, we skip it. We do try to do something for those special years. We renewed our wedding vows for our 25th with a small party at home & then after having saved for yrs for a special trip, we ended up finding a cheap deal & took the kids too. lol

At the time, I was furious with hubby as I had been looking forward to 2 wks of romance - yeah, I know it never existed before but maybe for my 25th it would have. lol

Anyhow, I'm glad we did it as it's the only trip the 5 of us have all been on together out of the country.
