Entertainment Center Surprise!

John hates when I blog about him because he thinks it makes him look not as tough when people find out how incredibly romantic he is! We found an entertainment center (tv stand and two audio towers) that we loved at Target. A wonderful friend of ours (you know who you are) gave it to us for an early Christmas present! When I got home from work last week, John surprised me once again! He had spent seven hours assembling the stand and one of the towers (Japanese instructions aren't as easy to decipher as everyone thinks). Our Christmas tree is using the space where the other tower will go in a month. He then decorated it with a big bow and ribbon, in case I didn't know who it was for! He is always so thoughtful. And thank goodness for great friends! It was fun to walk through the door and find that waiting.

Decorating the Christmas Tree 2008

I could get used to the idea that I get to share this Christmas with my wonderful new husband. When I was in Chicago for work, I found a beautiful Christmas tree at Costco. When I checked here in Phoenix, it was $100 cheaper! I casually mentioned this to John. The following Monday evening when I was back on the road, I got a text message with a picture of the tree I like! It was so pretty. However, upon closer examination, I realized it was in our living room! He had purchased it and set it up as a surprise to me!
When I got home that following weekend, we bought decorations (you can't really have a tree up and not decorate it). We were a little early (November 18, to be exact), but who can wait when something so wonderful is just waiting to be adorned with shatter-proof Christmas ornaments and red garland? Top it all off with a lit star, and we are in business. It took two nights to decorate because of all the ribbons we had to tie for the balls. I think the outcome is well worth the effort! I could get used to this married thing. I like it.
