For weeks I have tried to think of something to get Andrew for winning the SC Hotel Manager of the Year award. And could come up with nothing. Nada. Zilch.
I’ve sort of felt like a loser of a wife. I mean, what wife doesn’t get her man a gift of some sort to say “Way to Go! You’re the best! I’m SO proud of you!!!!”?!
I did teach Reynolds to say to Andrew: “Daddy, you’re the best hotel man!” And he’s stinking cute when he says it because he usually gets it mixed up…”You’re the best hotel!” “Daddy, you’re best man!” But tonight he got it all right!
And so did I.
I went to the mall this afternoon for lunch, to pick up a couple of things. And while I was there Williams-Sonoma called out to me. Really it was the Easter decor that did. Those white ceramic bunnies…they are the sweetest looking table-toppers!
I got in there and was looking around. And a few things about my husband you should know:
- He loves to cook.
- He really likes food.
- He loves a good cocktail, glass of wine, etc.
- He just passed the Introductory Sommelier course…like, last night.
I felt like I was in a pretty good place to find something fun for him that said, “Way to go, best hotel man who passed his wine test!!” :-D
I found a few things
First, a fun bottle of Red Jalapeño Hot Sauce!
Second, Wine & Food – A New Look at Flavor →this book is fantastic!!
Third, a duo of craft mixers: Maple Whiskey Sour & Sriracha Margarita! Woot!
I had them sitting in his chair at the table when we sat down for supper tonight and I hope/think he was pleasantly surprised by his little gift when he came into the dining room. I even got R to say “Daddy, we got you a present.” Followed by, “What is it?” ha….
It’s often really hard for me to find something small and somewhat meaningful…you know, like a sursy, for Andrew. What do you do to tell your man 1. you love him 2. you’re proud of him 3. um…he’s the best? ;)
I hope you had an amazing weekend…this week is going to be great!
