I frantically called my sister after church:
me: did you know it was mum and dad's anniversary today?
me: did you know it was their 30th?
me: oh. Do you have anything planned
me: well, are you coming over?
her: I guess.
Long story short, my sister is giving them their first grandchild sometime in the next 8 weeks so she was covered on the gift front and left me to fend for myself.
We (my sis & her husband, me and my husbad) arranged to meet at our parent's house to celebrate that afternoon. Hubby and I got a cake and candles, snacks, yellow roses (that's what mum had in her bouquet), and I found them 2 giant mugs (for all their juicing and blender drinks) with 'pearls' on them as the 30th anniversary is traditionally the pearl anniversary.
this was a Dairy Queen Brownie Torte in Turle, aka delicious. Vegan mum didn't think twice about it.
The happy couple, caught mid-laugh
