My daughter and son in law celebrated their 10 Anniversary last week.
They live in WA but are from RI.. So I thought of a great idea for a gift.
I'll send them a Clam Bake !! ( lobster, clams, corn, sausage, potatoes for those of you who think " how in heavens name do you bake a clam? " )
So.... I went to the seafood store and made the arrangements to have one sent , with TWO lobster !!
I email my DD and SIL a Anniversary card and in the message I told them to be on the lookout for a package and that it has to be brought inside right away and I gave them an other hint of
"Bon Appetite" !
Well, SIL called right away to say it arrived and it was going to make a wonderful candle light Anniversary dinner and it figured I'd send something like that because I'm such a crazy MIL !!
Well, DD was sleeping ( working night sift this month - state trooper ) so I didn't get to speak with her.
It's been a week and I haven't heard from DD and I'm a little hurt that she didn't call.... I understand the time difference and all that but she could have called me at work.
Well..... hubby and I went out to eat last night ( our weekly date night ) and the subject got on DD and how she sounded so good on the voice mail message.
"What message??? When did she call??? " I asked
He said, " I guess sometime Sunday night"
" Is the message saved???!!! " I inquired
He replied, "I think so."
As soon as I got home I checked the voice mail and sure enough I heard her voice and she was telling me how great and wonderful everything was and that her DH made clarified butter for the lobster and clams. She and her DH said it was the best gift ever !!
I feel so much better now !!! I just wish I was there so see the expressions on their faces !!
