a bratty wife + a good husband

Last week I was complaining to my poor husband about how I hate really don't like being poor and all I want to do is go shopping. {{I told him I was craving a new pair of shoes.}} He laughed and then issued a challenge...the very most challenging challenge. He said, "If we can go a whole week without going out to eat once--that means breakfast, lunch, dinner, or dessert-- then you can go get a new, reasonably priced, pair of shoes." I fell in love with him all over again and accepted the challenge. Um, it was really hard. >>It's no secret that I'm no chef.<< I just have such a hard time coming up with quick and easy recipes that I know we will both like, but somehow we did it and it was actually really fun! (I sound like a terrible wife right now. I getting more domestic, I promise.) So last night Nick took me to get my reward...

As we stood in the shoe section of Target (real high end shopping right there...but I love it) I held two beautiful pumps in my hand and racked my brain trying to decide which pair to get. I was so stressed out and I could tell my patient husband was ready to leave so I said "Babe? Have you ever felt like you were going to cry because you can't decide between two pairs of the exact same shoe-just different print?" He just laughed and said "Just get them both." Whaaaat?! I couldn't believe my ears but he was serious. Then I fell in love with Nicholas Ross Anderson all over again and we bought the pretty shoes.




Oooh the perks of being married to a sweet man, who's madly in love with you.. :)
