A big shout out to the best hubby EVER......


My dear, sweet, loving husband of almost 9 years has never been the ultimate gift buyer. He thinks that anything Alabama (as in Crimson Tide) is gift appropriate for me and that is all good..... except that my love of the Tide doesn't mean I need a purse, and a shirt, and pjs, and a car tag.... you get the picture....
Well- aside from the sports garb..... JD just doesn't have the gift-buying gene- the one that says "She has asked for Willowtree figurines, a coat stand, anything at Lowes for the house, anything at Hobby Lobby...." His gene says "She really likes this shampoo- I think I will buy her the super sized bottle" (this is not a joke- it REALLY happened people!)

Well- Mr. Bad Gift Buyer has redeemed himself....

I GOT MY CAMARA!!!!!!!!! (did you hear the haleluah chorus being sung... oh... it is just me) :)

I have been taking pictures like crazy but of course I haven't had time to figure out how to put them on here yet..... oh but when I do.... just watch out ;)

So a big shout out to my blogger family who helped me out! JD told me "You better get on your blog and tell how I finally bought you this camara because I am nice like that!"

Next ..... I want a king sized bedroom suit........ lol........

UPDATE...... I figured it out......

And these children may be blind from a camara flash ;)

Marty said...

Okay - I worked on him for quite a while about the camera - however, I also need a new bedroom suite so I think you're on your own for that one..... :)

WHOO HOO!!! I will admit that I even ribbed JD several times about the camera! Yeah Drea!!

Shannon Byrd said...

I deserve a LITTLE bit of credit here, whether he told you or not! :) Happy Birthday!!

I cannot believe he spent the money. I also can't believe you are nearly 30 years old and can't spell camera.

Oh well........Congrats.

It's that Skyline education!

Glad he finally got the hint and bought you the camera.

Yeah finally! Oh well and the super size bottle of shampoo is too funny!! That might actually beat my palystation game for our 5th anniversary!! That I cried for days over! LOL!!!

I was told that I didn't spell CamEra correctly by Mrs. Gaines..... I have no excuses....it looked right to me (obviously since I spelled it that way like 3 or 4 times) Must have been all that excitement mixing in with my home-schooled education :)-

You can't get me down Todd..... lol

And Byrd.... I was told you were trying to talk me down to a 10 megapixal..... but you did help out :)-

And Haley.... the shampoo came with a used blender.... it is a Christmas I will never forget for sure!!!!
