Our One-Year-Aversary is later this month. I had been thinking about what to get Husband as a gift for some time, trying to get something that falls in the tradition of a 'paper' gift for the first year. I casually mentioned it to Husband one afternoon, but I didn't have any suggestions for a present for myself. I guess it wasn't really a productive conversation at all.
Anyways...over Labor Day weekend, Husband told me he had bought my anniversary gift. My immediate response was "What is it?". Come on, why even bring it up if we're not going to have a conversation about it?!?! Then later that same week he told me that we would be getting a UPS package soon and when we do, don't open it. Why does he do this to me?!?! Had he said nothing, I never would have thought twice about a package being delivered to the house in his name. But warning me, taunting me, torturing me like that. I can't handle it!!!!
That same afternoon as I was pulling into the garage I see it--a UPS envelope sitting in front of the door. I picked it up and brought it inside. I set it on the counter in the kitchen. All the while the darn envelope was taunting me. So I took a peek at the return address. It was a website. Websites can be Googled. Google loves me. I love Google. But I have to be sly about it. Google from my Blackberry. That way there is no trace on the computer of my snooping. Ah ha!!! Found it!
It's a REALLY good gift. I'm quite impressed. And I have the best Husband. Hands down. And it even fits in the tradition of a 'paper gift'. But the bummer is, it makes all my gift ideas beyond lame. So now I have no idea what to get him! And it's all Husband's fault for making me snoop.
Friends: if you have any suggestions, please help me out. The Wife isn't supposed to be the one with the lame anniversary gifts! And someday I'll tell you how he tortured me with Christmas presents. Oh, and I'll share with you what he got me...after the One-Year-Aversary. Hey, somebody's got to be surprised, right?
