I think that was a movie title a long, long time ago.
Speaking of movies, Grace and I just watched a heart wrenching one...If I Stay.
Oh my, my eyes are still puffy.
Couldn't help myself. And I'm an ugly, ugly crier. Runs in the family.
On the lighter side....how are your husbands in the gift buying area?
Good? Bad? Ugly?
Or maybe a little like mine...dare I say, Lazy?
It wasn't always like this. When we were first married, and had small kids, he ROCKED.
I got a diamond necklace, earrings, clothes.
The problem was, the longer we were married, he told me he thought it was a challenge to buy me clothes, and just ask the salesperson what they wore, as long as I got the thrill of taking it back, cause wasn't that the point, the thrill of me getting a better deal? A better after Christmas score, and more clothes in the long run anyway?
Are. You. Kidding. Me.?
Then it just came down to giving me money in a box, wrapped by Grace. So I could spend it the way I wanted.
Does he NOT REMEMBER that my love language (from all those 18 years ago in pre-marital counseling) is GIFTS? I LOVE to give them, and LOVE to get them.
So, this year, I got something I wanted, then gave Grace money, and she got me the rest, cause AT LEAST SHE KNOWS WHAT I LIKE, and I wanted SOME of my gift to be a surprise.
Yes, I could make a list, but I don't know if he'd even know what some of the things are...
If I DID make a list...it would look like this, and anything on it would be a good gift.
I would choose this perfume (which I did, and Grace wrapped it. I can't wait!)
these boots while I was also wearing the above perfume.
I would bling it up a little with any of these bracelets from the Buckle. Cause I'm into a lot of bling lately.
After putting on these colors...
I would head on over to get a creme brulee latte, or a while chocolate mocha, or even a valencia orange refresher from this place.
this baby in either the geranium scent, or cranberry, or even lemon verbenna, because these are GOOD candles.
Even if he isn't a good gift giver, I AM, and I like getting everyone gifts that they enjoy.
What would be on your list?
