Okay, I do not like surprises much. I almost always pick-out my own Christmas Presents. I'll show them to my husband with "wanna see what you bought me?" Then I let him wrap them. Now, I am a very good actress, but on Christmas morning I don't have to act, I'm always genuinely elated to see my gifts. My kids don't usually even know that I knew what all my gifts were when I opened them. I know some people can't imagine this. They want to be surprised by their gifts. And when they've peeked before, it actually ruined Christmas for them to know what they were getting ahead of time. That's not me.
But, this year with me working a second job and not being home all the time. John had some extra time without me around, and he got creative with my gifts. He really put a lot of thought into gifts for me this year. He even surprised me. And I must say, I loved it! And being the Talker/Blogger that I am I now have to tell you about it. . .
He designed for me, and had made, business cards for my Blog. How cool is that?! And he actually went to the Brighton Store (by himself, and he's not a shopper!) and bought me a silver card case that has a Star inside a heart on it, and engraved on it is "Laugh often, Dream big, Reach for the Stars!" Perfect. And on top of that, he purchased my Domain name. (I didn't even know what that meant at first) He printed out and put in a frame "I thought you deserved a better web presence so I purchased the following web address for you: www.laughingthroughparenting.com" So now, instead of telling people how to find my Blog by star4laughs.blogspot.com, (hard to remember unless you write it down) it's just, laughing through parenting.com. (easy!)
Wasn't that thoughtful of him? He knows how much I'm loving the whole blogging thing. And I was surprised! So, I guess now I'm a REAL Blogger! (And I have business Cards to prove it!) ;)
