Surprises...

Throughout the year, I will buy stuff for myself knowing that Joe will get mad at me. So what do I do to avoid this??? I say 'Joe, here I bought this for myself, give it to me for Christmas or my Birthday (Jan 3)'. I really only buy things that I know are short lived and won't be able to find again if I wait another week or two: for example it's on sale or it's from a small boutique that I know once it's gone, it's gone! I've learned that waiting is just going to upset me as I know that Joe typically won't go out and immediately buy it for me. So... That's when I come home with my own gifts.

Two nights ago I had come home and told Joe that I had purchased something... Joe said, 'You never have any surprises for Christmas!' I said, 'Well... You don't always stick to my list!!! So then sometimes I get things that weren't on my list and I don't get what I really want or are top priority!' Sooooo that's why I sometimes go out and just buy what I want and he will gift them to me later. 'Joe, doesn't that making Christmas/Birthday shopping for you that much easier?'

So of course a F.R.I.E.N.D.S. episode came to mind... Joe of course quoted it... This is one of my all time favorite episodes as they have a lot of flashbacks, however this is just a very short 17 second clip.

  1. I like the one where when asked if she's going to return a Christmas gift, she says, "well, not *right away*!" ;) Yes, stick to the list. Surprises are nice...if it's something you actually really want. ;) Haha!
