Giving Credit

Alright, Alright. I have to give credit where credit is due. My cute husband isn't *completely* hopeless. :) infact, sometimes....he can be pretty darn sweet.

Mike has an REI credit card. When he makes purchases, he gets $$$ to spend at REI. This year his dividend was around 50 smackeroos. I always wonder what kind of contraption he is going to come home with.

He called me on the drive home, and I asked him what he bought. He informed me nothing....for him anyway. He had bought something for me.

*Flashback a few years to when Mike bought me a rock-climbing harness from REI for our first Valentines day, and then rock climbing shoes for our second, and a bike jersey for ....I don't remember. some other holiday.*

I am never quite sure if I should be excited, or just a little worried. He informed me I have NOTHING to worry about, and that I would be 100% happy, and he was 110% sure this gift was something I really wanted.

And you know what......

It was!! He bought me this:

A gorillapod! yay!

And he was right. I love it 110%. I have already been playing.
so I know....he may not ALWAYS think before he speaks......
But I know he really loves me. Afterall, he DID spend his if yearly REI allowance on me. If that's not love, I don't know what is. :)


  1. Wow! Thoughtful too! Do you have a remote yet? That's how we've done family photos. Fun fun stuff :)

  2. What a sweet guy! ;) I'm glad he's taking care of you.

  3. Yeah...I do have a remote. It took me a while to find the setting to use it. I just kept thinking the batteries were dead.

  4. That's pretty cool. Are you still loving your camera? We will be in the market for a new one soon and I do not know a lot about them. Your pictures always turn out so nice and clear. Do you have really good picture software too?

  5. I have a nikon d50, and I use photoshop elements 6.0 to do all my "editing" (of which there is a LOT). It has a pretty steep learning curve, but totally worth it. See the first comment here? check out her blog. Its awesome, and she gives all kinds of photography tips and editing tricks. yay allie!

  6. That is what I call true love. Very nice of him to support your love of photography. Your family is so sweet. Maybe next time I'll get to see you, too.
