An Early Present

Spoiler Alert: This post is very husband-bragging heavy. I gloat, I'm giddy and i can't tell you how wonderful my husband is with just words, but i try!!!

So, not only do I have a birthday coming up soon... but in a month, the amazing Husband and I celebrate our first anniversary of being married. It's amazing how quickly time flies and we are so excited for our trip to Las Vegas - where we had our Mini-moon after the wedding! {we ♥ LV}

It was a big deal for us now to set the precedent that we take the time to travel together to celebrate this date. So big of a deal that we opted out of buying Christmas gifts for one another so we could ensure we'd have the funds for our anniversary trip. Travel is important to us and sometimes the only way we can see our families, so while we do spend a lot of money on travel - it is a priority and we do our best to plan ahead to make sure certain events can happen.

So last night, while i was about 45 minutes into ironing the wonderful husband's work clothes, I heard him come rustling through the door. he said "are you here?" and i responded. He said "stay in the bedroom". Now i knew he had gone out to get my birthday gift - it's kinda hard for either one of us to do anything without the other knowing - so him coming home with a gift wasn't a surprise.... the surprise was this:

The enlarged image makes it blurry, but yes - that's a Huge Louis Vuitton shopping bag!
I had been telling my gorgeous and brilliant husband that i "needed" a new tote bag. Not just for work but for travel as well. I've been using this great huge beach bag lately just b/c i carry so much stuff - and having a nicer bag would be a bit more professional and of course, I'd look snazzier. I had looked around and initially thought I wanted a nice bag, maybe made of leather - but I quickly realized a tote bag is for "tote"ing things around. The lighter the bag, the less it adds to all the weight you are adding to the bag. So I realized, a canvas tote bag would be perfect for work. for travel. and for anything else that may come along in the future... the material is lighter than leather, more durable for wet weather or various elements, and versatile for travel and work.

So tada... welcome to our family... Neverfull GM. 
excuse the picture, i used my phone in my excitement.
I'm so happy to have you around... the best birthday/anniversary gift that has arrived early from my beloved Husband. My love tank is over flowing and our trip to FL and LV with my new LV will be very fun!! We ♥ LV (both Las Vegas and Louis Vuitton)!

But now the pressure is on... What to buy my amazingly genius, tasteful, brilliant and oh so lovable husband for our anniversary? Ideas anyone?


  1. Ohhh, what a perfect birthday gift!! That bag is perfect.

  2. Love it! How awesome of him! My husband is getting a boudoir album for Valentine's this year. Haven't thought about the anniversary yet...

  6. Man, what a gift! That bag will be hard to beat. Good luck!
