    My Early Birthday Present

    Today when we got home from work, there was a SmartPak box sitting on our stoop. When I saw it, I automatically assumed it was Nelson's monthly smartpak suppliments.

    We unloaded the car with our groceries and after we got established, I grabbed the smartpak box and said to Hubby "I'll just put this in the car since I'm going to the barn tomorrow" and I grab the box out of Hubby's arms and start walking to the car.

    I was looking down at the box as I was walking and noticed that it was my Husbands name on the shipping paper attached to the box, and not mine. I turned to him and asked what the heck? And he said to bring it to him so he could see what it was.

    As I headed back to him, I noticed a smirk was on his face, and I instantly knew what it was. I stopped and ripped the package open to see if my thoughts were true...and voila:

    When I pulled it out of the box, I started screaming and was jumping up and down in my front lawn - lol.

    Poor Hubby though, he was trying to keep it a secret until Saturday. He even left work through out the day trying to get home when the package was delivered with no luck.

    LOVE IT! But unfortunately, it is a smidge too small. They sent a size 1 when it was supposed to be a size 2, so we have to send this one back to get the right one.

    I'm still extactic though!

    LOL! I can't believe I got one! It is the Charles Owen J3 Skull Cap.

    Just a note here.. How tight is it? Just a little? It WILL form to your head some. I got the same size as my sister because hers fit me and when I got it it was a little snug almost a little uncomfortable after a ride. But after a few rides it fits perfectly now, if I had gotten a bigger size like I almost did, it would be too big and I wouldn't be able to take it back since I would have worn it a few times until I figured out it was too big. Just something to think about!! But then again you can always add more padding if next size gets a little too big.

    It's very tight when I put it on my head - like headache causing tight. My Coach has a size 2 Charles Owen J3 Skull Cap and hers is almost 3 years old and it fit me perfectly.

    Thanks for the tip though!

    You're going to love the Skull Cap. CO's are THE.BEST.

    Though... shouldn't be headache causing tight.... At least, that's what the helmet fitter told me.

    LOL, I cannot even wear this one on my head, and I am already loving it. My Hubby is contacting SmartPak tomorrow to let them know of the error.

    Your hubby is a doll and it looks simply smashing on you! Even though it's too small! :) Happy early Birthday!
