So last night my hubby totally spoiled me. It turns out that my family kind of pitched a fit at his idea for mother's day. He wanted to surprise me at my family gathering with tons of flowers, a necklace, chocolates, etc. They all kind of flipped because "technically we are not parents".
I know that we haven't had a successful pregnancy but sometimes I still feel like celebrating. But oh well, I buried those feelings and went about the day, spoiling my mother with a gift card for a shopping spree, a necklace, dinner, and a card.
Well I got off work last night at 5pm. I got home, and as soon as I walked in the door, dh pushed me right back out the door. I asked him what the deal was. He picked me up and carried me to the car, set me in and told me not to ask questions. I was so confused. I noticed about 15 minutes later that we were headed to my home town. We live in po-dunk Iowa with NOTHING to do. So we headed south to my home town that has more things to do. He took me to JC Penny's and bought me two dresses. That's all I could find that looked nice on me, in my opinion. Then he took me to Maurices, where I bought 2 dressy tops. Then I took HIM next door to the sports store and bought him 3 pairs of athletic shorts (for being so nice). Then we went to walmart and he bought me (kid you not) an Ipod and a movie. I was in shock. So while he was in the bathroom, I bought him a video game that he's been wanting. Then he took me to supper and got me dessert. It was awesome!!! He said that I deserved it for being such an amazing wife AND mother. Even though we don't have children of our own yet, every child we've lost matters. And so I SHOULD get to celebrate mother's day. He was so flippin' sweet.
I just wanted to share that.
