My surprise...just because

Oh my GOSH!!!! I came home from school today and proceeded to get settled and changed into my comfy clothes. I went into the bathroom and didn't see it at first but, soon noticed a black and red box!!!! It is a camera I have wanted for a more than a month! Out of all places....in the bathroom!!!!

Just to give you some history: I researched and researched until I was all researched out. I even interviewed several knowledgeable people regarding SLR cameras. I had my heart set on the Canon EOS Rebel XSi. It is a high-performance camera with a 12.20 mega pixel sensor as well as a powerful DIGIC III Image Processor. It has live view, 3 inch LCD monitor, and 9 point auto focus etc etc. I am a bit picky so I had to even make sure it had rubber hand grips (I suppose only geeky camera snobs would care about such a detail).

So back to today....

Well...........at first I thought the box was a six pack of Coke Zero (my favorite soda, and wondered why in the world would Coke Zero be in the bathroom)...then as I looked closely my heart skipped a beat! I gasped and ran out of the bathroom to only see my incredible husband waiting for me with a grin on his face! I wrapped my arms around his neck and literally jumped in excitement. Not to mention, planted (too many to count) kisses on his face. Although he knew I wanted this camera, I totally wasn't expecting it right now. Especially with Christmas around the corner. I know, I know, I am rotten. It's his fault not mine. I love my honey!

So, that's not the end of the story. He explains he has ANOTHER surprise for me! (I am SUCH a lucky girl). My eyes are as big as half dollars by now! I am jumping at this point and can't stop! However, I am so overwhelmed that I DO stop and just stare at him wide eyed. What could it be? ANOTHER surprise? Really?.....REALLY? Scott reached behind the bed and pulled out.....New Moon by Stephenie Meyer!!! I am SO pumped. I can't believe it. Mostly b/c it's sold out EVERYWHERE. Aah! I am elated and so grateful for my truly wonderful husband!!! Thanks for letting me brag! Off to play with my new toy!!! AND start New Moon. Yahoo!!!

Yay on the camera. That is so cool.

I just got done reading new moon on Sunday night. I am in withdrawals. I can't wait to read the next two. I have them on order and they should be here on Monday. If you need to borrow them let me know. Those books are strangely addicting.
