Do you have a tale of your own to tell?
Awwww! That's delightful!
You have a wonderful husband!!!!
Well, yesterday hubby took me to the and we came home with a new plush baby leopard. She's adorable.
And our third anniversary is Wednesday. Something tells me he's buying me jewelry. Since my guy is one of those types who buys for himself every little thing he wants the moment he decides he wants it, I usually get him ultra-practical gifts. (for his Bday he got underwear and socks). Last week we got into a conversation about gift-giving and he said "Women don't seem to know that men want romantic gifts too, not just socks."
So, I told him why he's hard to buy gifts for and he says he understands. That said, I went on a crusade last week to find him something as non-sock-like as possible. Hubby loves animals, especially carnivores, and he has a picture of a tyrannosaurus on his studio door at work. He LOVES T rexes.
Imagine my delight when I found a 3.5' plush T rex, open mouth full of teeth, bright turquoise T rex with fuschia spots. I bought it, and laughed for half an hour while I went to the mailbox store for a giant box to put him in. The box is so big no wrapping paper is wide enough to go round it, so 3 clashing strips of different paper are wrapped around it.
Then hubby found the box hiding in the garage.
When his face lit up I said, "Oh no, you're all excited! After our conversation last week, I don't want you to be disappointed when you see how practical it is. . ." And he said, "That's ok, it's the thought that counts." I'm sure he has NO idea what's in there!!!!!
