My husband and I recently celebrated our 6 year anniversary!  Yay!  We’ve been together nearly 10 years, but we were married in May 2005.  It was the best wedding ever and we are even happier 6 years later. 

If you are reading this honey, I love you.

Anyway, I will fully admit that his gift to me was WAY better than the gifts I got him…

The Gift

Picture what you know about me:  I love my husband, family, friends, our dogs, and blogging.  And right now, most of my life does have blogging involved, lol.  My biggest goals for this year were to be able to blog full time by the end of 2012 and to lose 26 pounds.  Well, I am down 25 pounds (shooting for 11 more by the end of the year) and I am on track to hit my blogging target number by the end of the year after all – maybe even sooner!

Given all of that, guess what Mr. BFS surprised me with?  He took my hand in the living room and pulled me off the couch.  He then told me to close my eyes and walked me to the front door of our house.  My close friend was following us giggling like she knew what was coming.  He gave me a kiss and I opened my eyes to see…THIS (well, it was in a box leaning against the wall, but he put it together later)!

Best Desk Ever Cause It's All Mine!!!

If you cannot see that picture, my FANTABULOUS husband bought me an office desk and set it up in our spare bedroom as the beginning of my work-from-home office!  What could possibly be a better gift than having faith that I will hit my goals and supporting that in the fullest?!  Plus, he has excellent taste AND consulted with my friend (they agreed on this one), so the end result was a desk that is dang perfect in my opinion!  🙂

Yep, I am over the moon!!! 

My Gifts to Him

I bought him Portal 2 for the PC as his actual gift since he enjoyed Portal.  I also got him the Ace Ventura Pet Detective set of DVD’s since those were two of his childhood favorites that still make him smile a little if he’d flipping through the channels and sees one on.  Ahhh…physical comedy…it’s not my thing but men are simple creatures.  😉

So yes, I feel like he definitely got the short end of this anniversary stick.  BUT, he made me the most jumpiest, giggliest, smiliest girl in the world there for a few minutes and I’m still grinning from ear to ear.  He also seemed pretty happy with himself while I was chattering away about my plans…

General note:  there is nothing better than having faith in someone and showing your support.  🙂

What is the absolute best gift you have ever received?  Given?  What would you want most right now?
