I'm provincial

At least that is what my husband told me yesterday.

On Tuesday he informed me that he couldn't find a sub for his yoga class and what did I want him to do. I told him to go and teach it. We can go out on Thursday. I'm not very fussy.

Well yesterday afternoon rolls around and I get a call from Ty asking if I wanted to go out to lunch. Sure! So he takes off early from work and we had a lovely time eating Fresh Rolls (to die for!), Sweet and Sour Chicken (non breaded...for me) and Red Curry (for Ty).

When we finished up he informed me that he was taking me shopping and that I could get pretty much whatever I wanted! Woo Hoo!

First I said that there were some cute skirts at Burlington Coat factory and then I said "Hey can I get a new Kitchen-Aid Mixer?

Ty shook his head in dismay and proclaimed "You don't have to get something for the house! I want you to get something for you. You don't even have to get clothes but if you do get clothes we don't have to go to Burlington Coat factory. You are so provincial."

This will amaze most of you but I had a hard time deciding what to get. I'm not much of a shopper. I decided that I needed some new clothes. Especially a Sunday outfit. So we went to the Mall...which we never do. And I found a couple of cute capri pants and a lovely shirt and skirt combo and two pairs of shoes.

Ty was so sweet and waited patiently while I tried different things on. The lady a Lane Bryant was trying hard to get the sale, for when she found out it was my birthday she said "Oh you are going to be 29 right?" And when I told her I was 38 special she acted all shocked. It was nice.

Thank you honey for making me feel loved and special on my birthday.

Oh and I also got that red toaster. I'm still provincial.

you are soooo provincial...really, though I have no idea what that means.

Tyran Rocks! Way to go on the birthday-o-meter.

I can't wait to see you in your new hottie clothes.

that rocks! i love shopping days where you don't have to feel bad for what you buy. they are very few and far between so YEAH FOR YOU! what an awesome birthday gift.

Tammy said...

What a sweet husband! What Tyran doesn't understand is that things like red toasters and Kitchen aid mixers aren't really the same as a vacuum cleaner or a mop. They are really jewelry for your house!

Pretty sure my husband would rather be kicked in the n*ts than go shopping with me. Especially at the mall. You've got yourself a keeper!!!
