So, here I am, keeping with tradition and only thinking a few times about what small token I'd like to get for Kevin to celebrate Christmas. We agreed to celebrate before he departs for Afghanistan again, but I fully expected a Riley-centric event...boy was I wrong.
We parted ways on Monday to run some errands and Kevin made a pretty big deal about doing his errands without me, so I knew something was up. Of course, my errands involved meeting my mom for lunch, getting groceries, and picking up dog food. Kevin's errands...not so much.
When I returned home, there was a decent sized rectangular box wrapped on the table and Kevin quickly suggested we go outside (presumably to let Riley play around a bit, since it was nice) to open it. "Ok, whatever you say." First, I unwrap the Ariat boot box (I know he didn't buy me new riding boots, lame). Next, I unwrap the Apple Mac Book Air box (I seriously got excited, because I love his new compy). Then, open it up to find an empty box except for a tiny Reis-Nichols Jeweler box tucked in the corner. Oh. My. Gosh.
|Please excuse my sad nails.|
There is not a chance in the world that I can top this gift. It is so incredibly beautiful. I am not much of a jewelry girl, but we agreed that my engagement ring was actually kind of sad (diamond is nice, but the setting was sort of janky). I would've NEVER expected to get this as an upgrade though...holy crap. I have an awesome husband. Give him a pat on the back or a hearty handshake when you see him, because he done good.
