this christmas season felt a little bit different than most others. in all our 6 years of marriage, i have done a pretty decent job getting john a few good presents. (like the banjitar two years ago... that was pretty good.)
but this year... i worked SO HARD to get john and NES classic. i woke up 6(?)ish times bright and early and went to the stores hoping that the line wouldn't be too long and i could hopefully snag one... but to no avail. so under the tree was a board game, (which is an awesome board game, albeit creepy, if you're in the market ;) and an envelope that said, "let's go skiing!" FAIL. i know.
in my defense, john's birthday is only five days before christmas, and he got band of horses tickets for his birthday. aka. WIN.
so, despite my lack of being prepared christmas morning and having an awesome gift for john to open, we had an amazing day of skiing. it has more or less confirmed my suspicions that EVENTS make way better presents than THINGS.
