I make it easy for my husband. He asks me what I want for Christmas. I tell him. I usually find EXACTLY that under the tree. My husband's policy? Must. Not. Deviate. From. The. List. (His mother taught him that, she gets pissy if we don't get her the one and only thing she requests for Christmas) I like to spice it up and be surprised. This year I agreed that neither of us wanted anything. I lied.
So I am flipping through a brochure we got in the mail. There was a scratch off coupon for anywhere from 5-60% off when you make your purchase. Hubby has to buy his mom a gift from that store anyway so I cut it out and kept flipping. Then I decided ah heck...let's help him out a little and I started circling things I like with big hearts and smiley faces. It didn't end there. When he came home I pushed it gently towards him. When that didn't work I actually and literally shoved it in his face and said..."Oooh pretty...I LIKE this...."
What is on the kitchen table after he left for work? That damn brochure. Oh well. Good thing I have 25 more days to convince him...
