Wednesday night was such a good night. I got home from the gym after an awesome 4 mile run and MrHoppy had dinner waiting. A healthy and delicious dinner which makes me so happy.
We were sitting at the table and I was rambling on about money, his upcoming boys trip to Chicago and how I feel like I'm not allowed to spend our money on anything for myself. I feel selfish doing it. I also feel like things he wants take priority over things I want. It wasn't a fight at all, just a calm and adult conversation.
Imagine my surprise when he went to the garage and came in and handed me a receipt. I thought it was the receipt from renting our snowshoes last weekend so I said I didn't want it. He said "yes you do"
He bought me the Burton board I found on sale last weekend. I spent all week researching it online, reading reviews and pretty much drooling over it. My current board is too big for me so I knew I needed a smaller one.
After some (very happy) tears, kisses and hugs I asked where my beloved board was? It was in the shop at REI being prepped and waxed.
I called (stalked) them yesterday to see when it would be ready. I was so excited when they told me we could pick it up after the gym! So... here it is! I LOVE it and can't wait to ride on Sunday. I have visions of myself flying down the slopes like a pro!
Have a great weekend everyone!
