(Here's the shuffle, Candygram, and my card with my AE gift card)So the whole day I had that to look forward to for the next day. I got to spend the rest of the day with Alysha (amazing that we both had the day off together) while Corbin watched the boys for me. She surprised me with the stuff for shellac nails! I had no idea and was SO STOKED. Then we headed out to do some summer clothes shopping for Lysh. The girl NEEDS clothes. Once we were done with that she took me for a nice relaxing foot massage. So nice...and kinda funny. The people doing it were Asian and did not understand English AT ALL. It was hilarious.
We ended the day watching some great shows. I felt so special, grateful, spoiled, and happy. It was a great day.
Thursday I got up and took Kai to his appointment then we went and dropped off the boys at Becky's and then headed out to start shopping. Jared knows that I stress about money and wouldn't spend it if I was just having to pay for things right out of our account. So he went and got a prepaid american express gift card and put a certain amount on it and told me I couldn't ask questions and that I could only spend it on myself for clothes, shoes, swimsuits, or whatever I wanted. It couldn't go towards something for the house or the boys or anything like that. I have never been on a shopping "spree" like this, but it was a dream date and birthday present. We went to every store I wanted. I tried on tons of clothes. I didn't have to rush. And I didn't have to feel guilty (even though I did a little). Jared put it perfectly, "he was forcing and supporting" cause he knew I would never just go do that on my own. It was the BEST. Did I say that already? The day went by way too fast and I didn't take a single picture cause I was too busy trying stuff on! Jared did update facebook with every single stop we made. I am sure people were thinking I was an absolute high maintenance spoiled brat! :)
I love my husband. He is the best and knows exactly what to do to cheer me up and make me feel so special. I feel so blessed.
