My Hero!

Look what surprised me after work Tuesday....



Need a closer look?



YAH!  The Kate Spade Fairy came to visit me with gifts!



With a cute little bangle bracelet...


And pearl earrings!

Ok.  There really isn't a Kate Spade Fairy.  Clint decided to surprise me yesterday, and boy did he!

But I have to share the story why.  Now, I know my husband loves me and I love him very much.  So any gift I get from him I know is really from his heart.  Well, for my birthday, he got me a fan that I mentioned would be nice in our bedroom.  Yes, I said a fan (we have no A/C, by the way).  Now, when I mentioned that fan would be nice for our room, I wasn't expecting it for my birthday.  I tried ever so hard to act thrilled for the thought of the gift, but he knew.  He right away said, "We can take it back."  I told him no, lets give it a spin.  Well, it started making a god awful noise and acted like it wanted to stop in the middle of working.  It went back.  I think the gods (has to be more than one to help me through that) were looking down on me.

I had told him not to worry about getting me a gift, since we found our dream couch the same day as my birthday.  But, my sweet man knew the way to my heart.

You know, the fan was a very nice gesture and shows he was paying attention when I said I liked it, but for some reason, this gift was just a little more special.  And Kate sure knows how to make a girl happy!

OK, so I always get a kick out of telling this story. One year for Christmas, my dad got my mom a vacuum cleaner. And even worse, when she opened it and looked confused, he said, "I found it at Goodwill for practically nothing! Isn't that great?" Men sometimes just don't realize that birthday and holiday gifts should be indulgent and not practical.

Those Kate Spade gifts are to die for! He did an amazing job!

OMG! Meg!! That is so funny! It's like, just because I vacuum a lot doesn't mean I LOVE it!

haha! I'm glad the fan didn't work out and he got a second chance to gift giving. I think men just don't get it...some memorable gifts I've received from my husband over the years (and most of these were from when we were dating so at least I knew what I was getting myself into): a non-stick omelette pan, a throw blanket, three robes, an office chair, a satellite radio and I think the best one yet was a pair of designer sunglasses. I was shocked and surprised when I opened the gift then he says "we have to return them, I can get them cheaper off ebay". haha!

That was sweet of him! I keep kicking myself for passing up an $80 metal table fan at Restoration Hardware that was originally $150 last summer. It was so lovely in aqua, but I was cheap and didn't get it. I wish I had. This has nothing to do with your story, except that you mentioned wanting a fan...uh, it's late. I better go to bed because I can't stop rambling! haha

Megan Elizabeth said...

That sounds just like my boyfriend! His defense would be, "But you said you wanted it!"
*Sigh* Men!

So sweet! The man clearly has good taste. : ) I'm glad he figured out the error of his ways. Haha!

oh, how funny! i'd say that blue bangle is much better than a fan, however necessary a fan is. thanks for linking this post so i could see.

good luck on the giveaway!
