Surprise Christmas Gift

My husband totally surprised me this year by handing me some cash and telling me that I could do whatever I wanted with it. New shoes, clothes, stuff for the house that I typically would pass up, whatever…he just wanted me to get something that I’d really love to have.

So I thought a lot about it over Christmas, and I definitely wanted new shoes (and got one pair, with plans to buy 2 more, including these – in black – that I fell in love with in Chicago but didn’t buy), but I had more to spend with no real plan in mind.

And then, like it was meant to be, I read this post.

And I decided to order my very own Silhouette!

I am beside myself with excitement, thinking of things that I can adorn with vinyl stickers and iron-on transfers! Plus, I have a few more ideas up my sleeve that I’ll be sharing in the coming months.

Thank you, husband!

But for now, I sit and watch for the mailman. IT’S HERE! I’m so so so excited. Like a kid at Christmas.

Oh, and I’m taking care of 2 sick kids (JH has been miserably sick since Saturday night…fever, ear infection with burst eardrum, cough, and now, to top it off, pinkeye; and Bennett has bronchitis), until tomorrow when school is finally back in session and a schedule returns to my days!
