the gift giver

Coat: c/o YesStyle Shoes: c/o WindsorStore, Tights: Target, Skirt: Thrifted, Button up: c/o YesStyle, Blouse: c/o Shopmamie, Belt: Thrifted, Watch: Gift from Husband
Do you like my not-so-subtle wrist modeling? I thought you might. I'm pretty sure if I was about 5 feet taller, Tyra would love me. Or maybe just my wrist. 
If you haven't noticed, it smeyes's on demand. And that's talent.
So I'm just gonna go out on a limb here and say that that watch is my absolute favorite early birthday gift ever. But that's what I said about these babies last year. So. You can take that for what it's worth. But notice I said early birthday present. See husband's not so good with surprises. Not so good, meaning like pretty much zero self restraint in that department. Last year, after he got me those sparklies, he came right home and begged to put them on my ears within the same hour. This year was no exception. I was sitting up in bed doing homework and he comes in all coy with his hands behind his back. And I say Oh no you don't. I want a surprise this year mister. But he says Sugar please. PLEASE I just want to see what it looks like on you. And I say no, and he says yes and this goes on for I-kid-you-not about 20 minutes. Finally, as we're reaching the point of him having already opened the box and trying to pry my hands from my face so I'll "just look at it, just once" ... I give in. And I just go bananas cause it's beautiful. And he goes bananas cause he's just so darn pleased with himself.
And then suddenly I don't care that he didn't wait until my birthday, cause I get to wear that big daddy all week long. And my wrist gets to practice it's smeyesing. Win-Win. 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We're completely enjoying ourselves right now. And doing lots of things we never get to do. Like playing choo-choo with our nephew, eating homemade maple cinnamon rolls, getting woken up by that same giggly nephew,"Si-nee UP. Si-nee UP" and getting the munchies way after midnight, thus stealing the gallon of milk, the box of Honey Bunches of Oats and two bowls into our bedroom for another round of conversation. Dude. Christmas Break? Completely rocking our world.

This year I just left the husband's Christmas present in plain sight and grinning from ear to ear waited for him to spot it :D
My Mom can never wait for the date either so I blame her for my own gift giving impatience.

Awesome wrist modeling :D
Looking great!

HA! I actually thought to myself "oh, these are great photos because I can see the watch alot better than the last one at the airport." So mission accomplished. And yes, it is gorgeous. I don't blame your husband for wanting to give that to you early. It's probably the nicest looking watch I've ever seen!

you guys are absolutely adorable ... i love reading your blog, its like I'm right there in the room with you ... but I'm not, because that would be kind of creepy ...
enjoy that watch girlfriend!

Taylor Renee said...

Love the watch! I'm the opposite of you - terrible at waiting for my surprises. Once I see a wrapped gift, I can't bear not to open it, or at least sneak a peek!

Happy holidays!

My husband can't wait either!! It drives me nuts. This year he promised to wait until my birthday to give me my gift. So he woke me up at 12:01 to give them to me.

He also has this uncanny gift for guessing what anyone buys for him. You'll think it's the most creative, awesomest gift like, EVAR, and he'll never guess what it is and HE WILL.

It's a good thing I love him so much or it'd be totally annoying.

Great outfit, and great watch!

My husband is the same way, I never get a gift on the day it is for, he gives them to me right away - even the engagement ring. :)

Angela said...

Too sweet Syd! Cute outfit (love the layers), but I love your story even more :) My fiance and I are totally like that. Usually I'm the early gifter, but it was him with my engagement ring. Fun! :)

Seriously? What is with husbands and not being able to wait? Hubby and I just exchanged gifts yesterday because he spent a day and a half saying "you wanna open your present?" every ten minutes. Silly, silly, boys. ::shakes head::
