I Have The Best Husband....EVER


and the cutest kids, but we're not talking about them right now. Most of you know that my birthday is next Tuesday. And if you didn't- you do now!! Dustin is like a child that can't keep a secret when it comes to buying gifts. I didn't think he was going to get me much of anything this year because we just got a camper, we are getting a new roof, and things like that. In the car tonight on our way home from Walmart he starts gabbing about memory cards and blah, blah, blah, and truthfully- I wasn't listening, but he did tell me he got me a present (I heard that part!) and wanted to know if I wanted it now. I told him it's not my b-day yet so I can wait. He couldn't though. We got home, unloaded groceries, and I was at the table and he said to close my eyes. When I opened them he handed me a plastic bag (from Best Buy), but I didn't even notice that. It was a memory card. I was bummed and tried to tell him (gently) that I already had two and don't need another. He got that puppy dog look on his face and played me for a fool for the longest time. He then says "I guess I'll take this back then". OMG!!! It was a new digital camera. There isn't anything WRONG with the one I have, but I wanted a better one. This one is awesome and so small!! It's a Kodak V1003. 10 MP. Holy cow!! I think photography is going to be my next love. So now Father's Day is coming up and how do I top this!?
