Regardless. After the gym and some dinner, Edder and I went ahead and participated in the Robinson household tradition and started opening gifts. Let me preface this. I am easily amused. And I am totally a full fledged member of my paternal family at heart (read: I have a hard time with change, warming up to things/people, and letting go of something I'm attached to). So. I've had this wallet, that I bought at Old Navy proudly for $2 back in summer 2006. It's probably the ugliest thing I've ever purchased. BUT IT WAS TWO DOLLARS.
Moving on, I'm a professional (and therefore very busy and important). Married to a fellow professional (who is more busy, less important, and quite more ridiculous). And there is a certain point in life (coughahem, like hitting 30) when you have to step up and graduate from the $2, ink-covered and stained heinous looking wallet from Old Navy.
Enter my favorite Running Lawyers (yes both of them), who both have this magnificent wallet (a/k/a "clutch") I've been drooling over for years now. I will have lunch with them, and instead of salivating over the sushi, I salivate over their wallets, because they have matching ones. And they are fantastic, and pretty and shiny. Preface complete.
Back to tonight, where the Robinsons proceed to act like eight-year-olds, all amped up and excited to open Christmas gifts a few days early....hey, there is something to be said about your own traditions, right? And me reacting more strongly to any gift than I ever have in the history of Ed and I being together....even Ed said it. I got more excited about my gift tonight that I did about my engagement ring.
I GOT THE WALLET. The coveted beautiful flat clutch I've been salivating over for three years. I have it. It's mine.... all mine. My precious. THAT, was the best part of my day.
Also. My cat Frank. Who I've written about but never posted a picture of. He's what I like to call "husky"... and he likes him some treats. Even if they are the dog's treats. And he is so darn cute I couldn't help but take a picture of him trying to pilfer the dog treats and post it. So here you go:
