Thanks for stoping by. What a special lady you must be. I hope he is proud.
About the organizing.. yes I have drove myself nuts for years. After having three kids grow up I had to learn to chill some.When the grandbabies came along I didn't even wont stuff on my floor.
I think the kids decided when they got out of here they would be pigs lol. Maybe what they learned will come back to them.


You are so hilarious. Looks like your hubby had a great day.

Beth Leintz said...

Oh Jessi you had me laughing out loud! I love your hunt for pink in the Bass Pro Shop!

Anita Minocchi-Fluke said...

Lena said...

Hi Jessie,

Wow! That is the perfect sort of guy day!

Many happy returns to your husband and best wishes to you both!

Betty said...

Oh my! My hubby would have thought he'd died and gone to heaven! You did see some cute pink stuff though and the wings looked yummy. As for trucks..I drive my hubby's truck all the time. I like it better than my car. LOL

Melissa @ The Inspired Room said...

Oh my, you are a SAINT to put up with that day! I don't think I could've handled it.

Thanks for the laugh!

Happy day,

leah - moxiethrift on etsy said...

lovely blog. followed the yellow brick road here by way of twodogpond. vintage doll house, yummy to my memory.

Jeanne said...

Wow what a grand day you served up for your husband. He must have been in birthday heaven after all those manly stops you made. My DH likes to spend time in hardware stores too....I just don't see the attraction, but then he probably doesn't understand the antique craft stores either!

Linda said...

Hi Jessi,
Good on ya! (sorry a bit of Aussie slang there), what a brave girl you are a real trouper. I must admit though I actually spend more time at the hardware store than my husband and the place where you had lunch I would of been ga ga over the cars just as much as the boys. Anyway better get back to my craft I'm in the middle of putting pink glitter on everything.
Cheers Linda

Amy A said...

Ahhh, what a sweet wife you are :) Looks like he had a great day. Love the pinks you found in they "boy" store hehe :)

Jennifer Hayslip said...

What a fun fun birthday. Your hubby looks like he's on cloud 9 with his new manly truck! You look too cute just going along for the birthday ride! Lunch time is definitely a testosterone filled place. hee! hee! Your hubby and mine would sooo get along. We have a Pro Bass near our home and hubby is there at least 3-4x a month! That's GREAT that you scouted out the pink girlie stuff. Im anxious to see your next post. Let me guess. YOU'VE already decoreated for Easter??? Im right arent I? :) Ok, I know it's going to be over the top. You are going to force me to decorate also. hee! hee! Ok enough rambling. I have something very very special on it's way to you in about a day or so. Be on the lookout!
