Friday's Foto Finish Fiesta

So this week I am torn about it being Friday all ready. I'm glad the week is over but that also means we are less than a week away from Christmas and this year I am just not ready for it. I'm sure I will get everything done but it's going to be a little crazy from here on out. Since it is Friday (or almost anyway) that means it's time for Candid Carries Friday Foto Finish Fiesta and here is my entry.



This is a picture of my new Blackberry that Dave got me. First I need to explain that this summer we switched our cell phone provider from Nextel to Verizon. When we were doing this I tried to talk Dave into getting us Blackberry's because I really really wanted one. Dave didn't think we needed them though so we ended up with a regular old phones. Then a few months ago when Dave got his promotion they gave him a Blackberry. Since then Dave has fallen in love and he would rub it in all the time. It really wasn't fair that the person who wanted one didn't have one but the person that didn't see the point in them does. Of course I have been giving him a hard time about this since then.

Now that brings us to this morning (Thursday 12-18). At about 7:15 while I was driving to work I heard my phone vibrating in my purse but it was allot louder than my phone normally vibrates and I knew I didn't have it set on vibrate. So I reached into the pocket on my purse where I keep my phone and tried to pull it out but it isn't coming out right and it feels weird. By the time I finally got it out the vibrating had stopped but what I had in my hand was NOT MY PHONE, it was the one above.

I'm sure for I should receive some kind of here's your sign, or real women of genius award but my first thought when I saw my phone was that I had the wrong purse and it clearly belonged to someone else. In my defense it was only 7:15 in the morning and I was still on auto pilot at that time. At that point my phone started vibrating again and on the screen was Dave's name. That is when it hit me, Dave got me a present and this is MY Blackberry! Of course I answered the phone and the first thing I said to Dave was "what did you do?"!

So Dave being the sneaky husband that he is bought me a 12th anniversary/Christmas present after we agreed not to buy each other Christmas presents this year. we normally don't celebrate the anniversary of us being together but Dave decided to this year. Honestly I think I need to learn that even when Dave says we wont celebrate something he always ends up getting me something and then I feel guilty that I don't have a gift for him. It's been like this since the first Christmas we were a couple. We decided since we would only be together a week at that point we wouldn't get each other anything. Christmas morning Dave shows up at my house with 7 red roses and one white. He goes on to tell me that there is a red one for each day we had been together and the white one was to represent the future. 12 years later I still haven't figured out that when he says no presents he doesn't mean for me.

Do you have a picture and a story to share? Then head over to Candid Carries and join the fun.
