Redneck Wedding Anniversary Gifts

I know...I know..It's a strange name for a blog..but just wait. You'll probably be rolling on the floor holding your side laughing like I was after I had this phone conversation with my husband.

Mine and Jeremy's 2nd anniversary is coming up in 7 weeks. I was asking him what he might like me to send him. ( He will still be in Afghanistan, so I can't send him anything valuable or, food-wise, anything that will melt.) So, he was looking online to see what might be available for him to get me and came across the list of acceptable anniversary gifts. ( I actually used this list last year for our first anniversary and in keeping with the traditional, I got him a journal...which is still as blank as the day I bought it....) He informed me that he thought a woman had to have written the list since it was all stuff for women. He asked me if there was a men's list of gifts. I laughed and explained that probably it was written for women since they were probably the only ones who were supposed to get a gift. LOL. Here is how our conversation went:

Jeremy: Why isn't there a list for men stuff?

Me: I don't know...what do you think should be on it?

Jeremy: Definitely not this junk....I know what I'm getting you for our tenth anniversary....(it's aluminum)..

Me: What's that? A can of Coke?

Jeremy: Yes...a whole 6-pack of 'em.  

Me: Oh ok....So what do you think should be on the list?

Jeremy: You gonna write it down?

Me: Yep.....(opens Notepad)...ok shoot...


1st anniversary- fishing lures...They come on paper!

Me: What about for women?

Jeremy: They already have a list...this if just for men.

2nd- flannel cuz it's in the cotton category. 

3rd- Rod and Reel
4th- Bait/ Deer Pee

Me: *laughing* wow....

Jeremy: (overlooking my laughter)
5th- it's wood so....power tools.
6th- used truck part- "yeah"
7th- Lets go with a boat.

Me: soap?...

Jeremy:..no, a BOAT...

Me: a boat?


8th- clay pigeon..

Me:clay pigeon?! *I was laughing so hard by this point*


9th- tree stand.
10th- guns and ammo (if you make it that far you'll probably be ready to use it..)


Jeremy:..you know I'm just playin!

Me: I know.....are you gonna finish the whole list??

Jeremy: No....well..I'll do the eleventh.

11th- it might be pretty expensive,..but it might be worth it by the time you get this far.....ready for it?....I'm only kidding though....a divorce...

Me: Really? LOL...

Jeremy:actually...for the 11th it would be a second bachelor party.


Jeremy:..I'm just playing.

Me: I know....*laughing uncontrollably*

See what I mean? Hilarious. He was so serious too..except for the 11th. :P So ladies...if you're wondering what to get your Hubby for your anniversary..you can always use the Redneck Wedding Anniversary Gifts list.....LOL...I love my husband. :)
