It isn’t just a typical Sunday and to go even further than that, it isn’t just a typical mother’s day either – today is also my wedding anniversary to a super amazing guy who I love dearly. We don’t usually do much for any of the little holidays, we might exchange cards or go out and do something fun as a family.
This year hubby had other plans.
A few days ago, hubs was talking to a co-worker and happened to mention he was thinking about getting a cell phone. I stared at him in shock. He has been without one for about 4 years. Why? Because he just didn’t see any reason to have it. He works nights, and sleeps days. So he felt like it was a waste of money every month. So when he canceled his, there went mine since we were on a group plan.
A few months later, I splurged, bought myself an expensive phone and got on a pay as you go (sort-of) monthly plan.
Well, apparently hubs has decided it’s time. So Friday night he took me out – bought me the expensive phone I wanted with the awesome camera and music and you know, all the good stuff. I love it so much. We got a cricket plan that is just a tad more than what I was paying monthly for the other phone and it’s for TWO phone lines with unlimited everything. Totally worth it. That was my mother’s day/anniversary present.
The best part of the gift, isn’t actually my new awesome phone – but it’s the fact that my hubby finally has a cell phone again and that I can contact him when I need him. Something I hated not being able to do before. I can already see him feeling more confident and he loves his new phone. And I love his new phone, and my new phone. We’re both happy. Score!
Oh, and I got lots of great goodies today – things they made, things they put together – but my favorite besides the phone – has to be this awesome shoe my daughter made in Art at school. I just love this!
After a wonderful dinner on the patio (that hubs cooked) we had a firepit and just hung out. I love these moments. Of course, I did get a headache because they were being… well, teens. But it was still worth it.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of you!
