    Default My Birthday gift...

    Well, as it does every year, my Birthday was today. And dh did his very best to surprise me with a Birthday gift. ANd this year, I must say he really did surprise me. He didn't get me baubles, or trinkets, no cologne or lingere. He instead bought me.. (drum roll please) wire shelving. Yes, wire shelving. For the laundry room. Like this in the pic I will attatch...Next year, I drop better hints. ROFL

    This means true love. I'll never forget the year he bought me paper bag brown colored insulated coveralls for my birthday. It was his way of showing me he cared. Just what a woman who recently lost 45 lbs. wanted.NOT!

    I know you'll enjoy those shelves, they are going to look & work great in the laundry room you worked so hard on.

    Melissa, that's going to be a very useful gift for your laundry room. And that's so nice of him to install for you.

    Enjoy Missy, I would!

    I get the baubles and jewelry and would much rather have practical items.

    Well Melissa his heart was in the right place
    Enjoy those new shelves everytime you use em, think of that romantic man you're married to. (sometimes they don't get that we don't usually want things to work with for our special gifts...do they?) Give him an E for effort.

    Hey, at least he's been paying attention to what's important to you right now (getting that laundry room organized!)

    Enjoy those shelves! I have them in my bedroom closet and really like them- no shelf paper to mess with!

    His heart was in the right place, although I have been begging for an exersize bike. So now I will find a way to raise funds for the bike myself.
