And I am Continously Spoiled.....

I am kind of doing my posts out of order, but I need to take some pictures of my Mardi Gras goodies before I can do my post on my Mardi Gras experience. So, I will do this post first.

Now, as I said in my previous post, my husband surprised me for Valentine's Day by letting me have a "mini shopping spree", then surprised me with balloons and candy. Well, my spoiling didn't stop there. On Sunday, February 15th, he bought me dinner at Olive Garden. Granted, we ate it in our hotel lobby, it was still sweet. And while this may seem strange, on the 17th he paid for me to have 4 body piercings done (eyebrow, nose, labret, and navel) and on the 19th I got 2 tattoos. After that it was Mardi Gras weekend and then Fat Tuesday so there wasn't much surprising and shopping then.

Now, on February 27th, I get more. It's still a debate on whether it is still Valentine's spoiling or an early Anniversary gift. First, I really hated my cell phone. We got them because they were cheap and affordable at the time. I really missed my QWERTY keyboard for texting (I LOVE to text!), so we went looking. I had found one online for a decent price but honestly it wasn't what I wanted. So, after looking at AT&T, I went to Best Buy and went ahead and paid for the Samsung Pantech Matrix. Love it so far. Then I had to take the 2 pair of wrong sized pants back to the Black and Gold store. Since they were sale items I could only exchange rather than refund. So, I chose a Saints outfit (pants, tank top and jacket). I also REALLY wanted an authentic jersey which normally run $225. Well, they had them on sale so I got that too; Jeremy Shockey #88 of course. The next "gift" is kinda for both, but mainly for me. Soon, Chris has to leave for a couple of months while they wait for the next phase of this project. So, he bought the Tom Tom One XL GPS for me to use while he is gone. I can literally get lost anywhere! That was really all that was bought today.

He also took me by New Orleans Daiquiri Shop and I got me a 32 oz. Mudslide. Gotta love Louisiana and their drive thru Daiquiri shops!

Tomorrow I want to go to Grand Isle to see the Gulf. Doubt it, but I can hope.

Well, here is a picture of "The Swamp". Ok, it's Leeville where hubby is working. LOL

Valentine's Day 2009

First, my thoughts on this "holiday". Ok, so Valentine's Day, in the West, is the traditional day on which lovers express their love for each other by sending Valentine's cards, presenting flowers, or offering confectionary. Okay, I don't do all that. And besides, why do I need someone to tell me that on this one day, I'm supposed to show love and devotion to my husband. Shouldn't I be doing that all year round? Plus, I HATE the element of surprise. I don't know why, but I hate it. I don't mind having attention showered on me, but I don't want you to surprise me with it. And I dislike real flowers. If you're going to give me something to symbolize your love for me, don't give me something that will die.

Ok, so on February 13th, dh got off work early. He came home and announced that I could go anywhere I wanted to. Well, I wanted to go to the Black and Gold Sports Shop in Metairie, LA to look for my white Jeremy Shockey jersey. Well, needless to say, I walked out of there with a whole lot more. I think it was a PJ set, white jersey, 6 other Saints shirts, a couple pair of PJ shorts, and a pair of Fleur-de-lis earrings. Then I went to Wal-Mart and got some new jeans, a new pair of pjs, and a pair of black pants. In all he spent $500 on me. I need to take a few things back and exchange them. I had grabbed 2 pairs of pants from the Saints store but they were the wrong size. I may exchange them for a pair of Saints crocs and a maybe some Saints scrunchies. LOL Pictures of all this stuff will be coming soon.

On February 14th, Chris surprised me with 3 balloons and candy (hence read the first paragraph). Then I dressed up, kinda, and we did a poker game with his co-worker. I drank a few drinks. Nothing major.

Am I Spoiled?

Well, yes I am!!

What did I say was on my wish list? My Jeremy Shockey jerseys? Well, yes I did get one of them!
The front:
The Back:

Went back to find a white one too, but they didn't have any. Need to go look at other places for it. And more of my spoiling: New laptop, new inkjet printer, and saints cell phone case. Next is more jerseys and my saints hat.

And now, for a good laugh. Chris' co-worker went to Bourbon Street one night and was so drunk that he forgot to shut his door. So, what else should we do? Walk in and take a picture of course!
