Happy Thanksgiving, Y’all

I’ve been meaning to post to let you guys know that Kevin came through with the pots and pans. It’s amazing what a little public humiliation and shaming will do, right?

Not really.

I forgot to mention that one of the funniest things about the knives is it was only a half set of knives. There were no steak knives. So I figured there was something in the works, but Kevin went above and beyond to make it look like he’d only bought me knives and that I ought to be appreciative, so that’s when I turned to my blog and let everyone know how grateful I truly was.

There are so many ways that all could have been avoided. I mean, the boys could have cut out pictures of the pots and pans and glued them to a piece of paper. Williams-Sonoma has printed cards that you can give the person to show what you bought for them as well. But look at all the fun we had!

(Looks like my hunch was right about Kevin unselfishly giving of himself so I could have blog material.)

He actually purchased the Le Creuset to replace our old pots and pans on November 6th, (A day before my birthday!) but the store didn’t have them in stock so the earliest shipping date was November 8.

Seriously, I laughed all day on my birthday at the messages I received. It seems just about everybody has received some sort of weird gift from their significant other at some point in time. There was everything from shotguns to food processors.

And in keeping with celebration and gift-giving, I’d like to say “Happy Anniversary!” to Kevin today. Thank you for putting up with me for the past fourteen years and for never taking yourself too seriously even though I know you could. I love that about you.

So what’s the worst gift you’ve ever received? You can put it in the “Comments” section below. I’d like to know.

Kevin can go first. His worst gift is going to be the diamond earrings he’s getting this Christmas. 🙂


Happy Thanksgiving, Y’all!

  1. A necklace exactly the same as the one I got a year before but smaller. From MG
    Half empty bottle of perfume and used towels. From dear old mom

  2. As I was outside blowing leaves off my driveway, I realized I hadn’t responded to the “most memorable” Christmas gift I hope to ever receive. Yep, you guessed it…A LEAF BLOWER. Tom said it was a joke. I said it really blows. What else could he say when he saw the look in my eye? I now realize that revenge is sweet. I think he’ll love his new sectional sofa this year. And that’s no joke!!
