He Shot Me Down, Bang, Bang

      Today, it's mine and my boyfriend's anniversary. After his surprise I talked about in this post, I felt the pressure to come up with something better than just a t-shirt or a gift certificate from H&M so I decided to get him a gift certificate from Zara, naturally. Just kidding. I planned something cool and I had built the suspense weeks before the big day but then I shot myself in the foot and ruined the surprised by blurting it out by mistake - yesterday. Speaking of shooting myself in the foot, that was the surprise, I took him shooting.
      We've watched countless action movies and had talked about trying it ourselves to see how it actually feelt so I made the arrangements at a shooting range in our capital city and successfully kept it a secret for weeks until yesterday. A friend of mine, who knew about my surprise, asked me if I was able to pick something up for her in the capital since we were going there. I knew that my boyfriend was planning a surprise of his own so I had to check with him first to see if we had the time to do it. The previous week, I was working like crazy till 2 a.m. every day and my brain just wasn't functioning anymore, on top of that I was semi-wasted on Saturday night so most of my grey cells were completely fried by that time. I called my boyfriend and straight up said:
      "Hey, do we have the time to pick something up tomorrow after we're done shooting?" I froze up. He didn't say anything immediately and for a nanosecond I thought: "Maybe he didn't hear me."
      "So that's what we're doing, you're taking me shooting?" The term "wishful thinking" had never been more clear to me ...
      "Fuck." I was completely unable to think and even if my brain was working with full speed, I don't think I could've possibly covered up my mess-up. But then he made it even worse by saying:
      "I don't believe you, you're not that dumb to fuck up like that."
      Then I just started laughing and crying at the same time: "Yes, yes, I am that dumb! I'm sorry but you're dating a complete moron."
      Even if the surprise was ruined, the experience wasn't. I don't want to sound like a crazy trigger-happy maniac, but it was FRIGGING AWESOME. I'm no doubt against weapons and I don't think there's any need for civilians to carry them period but as a sport, shooting is very cool. We both had a blast more or less successfully blasting up that target with a 9-mm Czech Zbrojovka gun, which matched my hot pink nails perfectly.
      After that it was my boyfriends turn. Like shooting, we'd always wanted to try sushi so he surprised me by making reservations at a sushi restaurant. I was hungry, I was excited - I was more than ready to eat some raw fish. We got to the restaurant and both ordered some sake. There's really no surprise that I drank alcohol, but my boyfriend never drinks so to be able to toast with him was a perfect anniversary gift. It was even more perfect when he couldn't finish his Hakkaisan and I had to drink it for him.

  1. Love the vest you have awesome style...

  2. Ha ha - don't you just hate it when that happens. I think I've only done this once with my dad's present and a mobile phone he wanted. Anyway that's a fab present, never really thought about doing something like that, in fact wouldn't even know where to go - will google it! Love the leather waistcoat by the way!

  3. Sounds like a pretty wonderful anniversary! And I love that blue on you. :)

  4. Hi,
    Happy Anniversary to you and your boyfriend!!

    By the way, nice outfit!

  5. You're a fun girlfriend! I'd be terrified. I don't know how I feel about guns. You are a brave girl.

  6. Lolol, I don't know to cry or to laugh T_________T / :DDDD So I will just do both. I can't believe you blurted it out like that! Hahahahaha but I guess at times that's what makes everything more real. Spontaneity, surprises (for both of you) and covering each other's weaknesses (le bf's drinking meter).

    Oh. Sushi.



    I r likes joor tattoo. To poot with gynae nurse.

    I seriously just like your posts because they are so real. Not superficial, not filtered and you could just let out what you think (aka that DIY earring >D).

    Can't wait for "Friday, Friday, Gotta get down on Friday"
