My hubby did good this Christmas

I am so proud of my hubby. He normally listens throughout the year about things I've wanted or liked, and will do a big shopping for christmas. horse things are usually left up to me though, as he doesnt want to "get it wrong" and surely isnt in his element.

Well I came home to 6 boxes wrapped yesterday and a stocking full. There were also horse catalogs everywhere which were shipped with each item. I had to ask "Are all these gifts horse related?"

He looked nervous... I assured him, that is not a bad thing! He said yes! He said hes been listening to things I want, and he really thinks he did good. He went to tractor supply by himself, went through catalogs I had and even bought "clothes" he said. Dont know exactly what that means, btu I am so **** excited! Is it wrong to live for horse items? Sure there are other things I would have liked, just cant think of anything at the moment! lol!

Go him! So proud of him. now I have to make sure to get exactlywhat he wants. What a good hubby

Ok, good vent over. Thanks for letting me get my excitement out.

Yea... he's not the type to getsomething wrong, so i'm leaning towards the idea of a sweatshirt or something hard to do the wrong size in. Breeches would definitely be wrong. Unless he looked at my tags ;) LOL

My parents don't want to get my anything horsey for Christmas since they don't want to get it wrong and want my gifts to be a surprise. Your hubby seems very thoughtful! Keep us updated on what you end up getting and if it turns out right!

maybe he bought you some "underwear" that he likes, with "horsey images" all over them.

Let us know what you get! I had to give my boyfriend links to the specific items I wanted, and somehow I still doubt I will get what I want or it will be the wrong size lol, you would think after 6 years he would just know How long did it take for your hubby to get it lol

Well... we've been together for 5 years. He never really "gets it", what man does? HA! But i did have to circle some items in a catalog, just things ive liked, but wouldnt buy. but he didnt only go shopping via that catalog, which is why im so impressed. Plus he told me some of the items were things i mentioned months ago in regular conversation. AAAAAA so nervous! And excited! 5 more days!

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."
