Hubby surprised me with a necklace for my very first mother's day.
As much as one can be surprised when they tell a spouse exactly what they want, the style, the color, the sku #, and the store to purchase the gift from.
I was playing with baby boy on the floor Sunday morning when hubby snuck up behind me and handed over a little white box. Inside was the most beautiful necklace I could have ever wanted. He decided to pick one out on his own (how dare he!) and did a far better job than I did.
"Do you like it?" he asked nervously.
"Oh honey! It's gorgeous! Wow. So pretty!" I said, scrambling to put it on, running to the mirror to look at it.
"Really? Are you sure?" he asked.
"Oh my. Yes. Wow. Just wow." I said smiling, while looking at the delicate etchings in the metal.
"Whew!" he said. "Because if you weren't crazy about it, I was thinking we'd go trade in your car for a new one. Just saved myself about $19,000!"
"We just had this romantic moment... and THAT'S where you went with it?" I said.
"What?" he said confused, "I was being honest!"
Hubby. Ruining perfectly good romantic moments since 2004.
