The Cat's out of the Bag

My husband told me that he had ordered my Mother's Day present online but that some thing happened so that it wasn't going to be delivered on time to arrive before Sunday and he just wanted to let me know so that I wouldn't be disappointed when there wasn't something there for him to give me.

I'm fine with that. I asked if he was going to tell me what it was that he got me. I wanted him to tell me right then but he said no, I had to wait for Sunday and he would then inform me what my gift to be was.

I was okay with that. I'm not the kind to give pressure. I can bide my time to find out what I my gift will be. I wasn't one of those kids who snooped around for presents at Christmas or whenever. I'll wait until Sunday.

Now let me give you a little bit of background on Ty's gift giving. He loves to give me things but has a devil of a time not telling me what he's giving me. He can't keep a secret to save his life. Especially if he is excited about it. It drives him nuts that I don't ask more about the presents. In fact he will ask me if I have any idea of what he's gotten me. It's actually quite endearing.

Unfortunately for Ty I am quite intuitive and I usually end up guessing what he's gotten for me. So I try not to guess so I don't ruin the surprise.

I wasn't bugging Ty about my present. Although I had an idea of what he was getting me when he asked me what size of memory card I had been looking at the other day that was on sale.

My idea was confirmed today when I answered a phone call right around noon. It was a company calling to confirm his purchase of a new camera online. Tyran wasn't home at the time to take the call. If he had been then I never would have known.

Did you read that right? YES!

A NEW CAMERA!!!!!!!!!

I was going to try and make like I didn't know about it but I couldn't. I am way, way excited! I don't know what model it is but I know it's a Nikon.

So thanks honey! You are awesome!! I'm sorry I answered the phone and ruined your surprise for Mother's Day but I can't even begin to say how happy I am with this present! Thank you. You're the best.

I am Giddy!!!!!! I tell you Giddy!!!!!!

Yeah! Shanna that is the most wonderful thing I can think of. I know how long you have wanted one. I am so proud of Tyran for being a rockin' husband for mother's day. You deserve it.

Oh my gosh! I totally thought you were pregnant too!

And my husband needs a list when buying me gifts. He never surprises me.

Christa said...

Oh my, I just got chills! I'm so excited for you. I absolutely love my Nikon. Mine is a D60. I cried for a good five minutes when it arrived. Mine was a surprise too. A completely unexpected one. My husband loves to be very sly. He never acts like anything is going on. It drives me crazy. Bless his little heart.

I can't wait to see the amazing pictures you will take.

Whoohoo! How exciting! I got a D60 just a few months ago and I absolutely LOVE it!

tammy said...

YAY!! I usually always find out what my husband is giving me too, since he pays with the debit card and I'm in charge of paying the bills. At least they're thinking and shopping for us, right?
