Birthday ROCKS

I had the most fabulous 22+8 birthday this weekend. On Friday night, I dressed up in a new slinky black dress and waited for my husband to come home so we could go to dinner. When he finally gets home, he has a big grin on his face and a big box. (Oooh...presents...early....this is a good way to start)
Giddy, I sat down and greedily tore open the package. Shoes. They were cute. I was slightly impressed, until I looked up and realized he wanted me to PUT ON these black, casual, ankle boots. (Keep in mind I was wearing a slinky, strapless dress.)

PANIC.

He wants me to wear these to dinner.

He looks so happy and proud of himself.

What do I tell him?

Maybe they won't fit.

Please don't fit. I really like my new black dress and I will look RIDICULOUS in these shoes.

"Try them on!" He begs, excitedly.

Gulp.

Here goes....

I slip one shoe on.

Whew...they ARE a little tight.

I go to try on the other boot.

Hmmmm, something is stuck in there.

I peek inside the shoe and see a small white box.

Slowly, and suspiciously I pull out the box...Dan is grinning...smirking really.

I pop open the box and see the most DAZZLING diamond earrings.

"These aren't real are they?" I blurt out. (I sure know how to ruin a moment)

Oh but they are. And they are GORGEOUS. And huge (which will embarrass my husband by my telling you that).

I am one spoiled rotten girl. And it feels great.

And thank GOD he didn't really expect me to wear the shoes.
