Early Birthday Present!

As most of you know, I begin my birthday and Christmas lists 11 months in advance. My husband, who is most accommodating almost always gets me what I want plus a few surprises! That sounds like I'm demanding and spoiled but, in all honesty, most of my requests are in the forms of, "Oh, that looks cool!" or "That would be nice to have!" Since I have broken two previous iPods, which I swear wasn't my fault, I assumed I would have to be content with one that shows no screen. My husband and I have a problem with showing each other gifts in advance. The truth is that we're so excited to give them to each other that we just can't and don't wait. Tyler went to the gym after I did the other day because London was sick and we had to rotate. When he got home I was taking a nap on our bed. He promptly woke me up and said he had a birthday present for me. Of course I was thrilled and shocked to find a purple nano! People, you shake it and it literally shuffles the songs! So, in much gratitude, I say thank you and love you to my ever attentive spouse!

You are hilarious.
Brad and I don't discuss gifts before holidays, birthdays, or special occasions--I think it's our non-confontation personalities and not wanting to seem like we're demanding. I have thought about slightly hinting though--I'll let you know how that goes.
