He's full of Surprises!

Ok I am on a complete high this week! It really has been an amazing one. I have worked out 3 days this week and drum roll please......I have lost a total of 7lbs in the last month! I couldn't believe it when I stepped on that scale but I am so thrilled that my hard work has paid off! It's showing and I feel all the benefits of it. Better mood, higher self esteem, cleared and happy mind and body! Thank you Bikram!

My week has been great for so many reasons but yesterday was the real high. I've been eyeing this dress and had sent an email to Chris a while back to show him to get approval (part of our money conscious behavior to stay on track with our budget). He didn't send me a reply back and never said a word so I figured I would just let it go. I loved the dress but it wasn't worth getting into an argument over (gotta pick your fights wisely). Plus we have been getting along so well lately and we feel back to our old/new selves that it just seemed silly. So I am going about my busy work day yesterday and I receive a call from the hubby. "Hey babe, I put some money aside for you and I want you to go buy that dress." What?! This is not something that Chris usually does. He is a very thoughtful and amazing hubby but when it comes to clothes he doesn't see what all the fuss is about. I tear up, not because I get the dress, but for the fact that after almost 7 years together he still knows how to surprise me. He took money out of HIS savings to give me a dress that would make me happy. I was shocked and giddy. I asked him what made him decide to do this and his response "I knew it would make your day and I love that I can do that." Too sweet! So after our phone convo I went online and made the purchase. As soon as I got in the car after work, we carpool, he asked me "so how soon do I get to see you in this dress?" lol. I'll post a picture of the dress as soon as it lands on my doorstep.

I hope this amazing week rolls into the weekend, which I am pretty sure that it will. We have alot going on and so much to look forward to for the following week! Thank goodness it is Friday and thank goodness Rodeo Cook-off is right around the corner!

I have been lacking in pictures lately but I promise that soon I will just have a picture post! So be prepared! Happy Friday!

Also a quick shout out to a special birthday boy! Happy 29th JJ! Hope its a great one!!!

xoxo
