So today Austin went shopping for my anniversary present while I was with the kids doing errands and the whole day I'm thinking about my beautiful ring. I kept looking at my finger in the car as I was driving picturing it on that hand and being so pretty. Before I got home Austin calls me to tell me that he's home and he has my anniversary present. Austin and I BOTH do a horrible job at keeping something a secret and we get too excited to wait so he tells me that if I want, I can get it when I come home. I was sooooo excited!
When I get home I tell him I DO want it now so he tells me to close my eyes. He turns around, rangles with something and then puts my gift in front of me and tells me to open my eyes so I did. Wanna know what I was looking at? Well, I was SOOO caught off guard thinking I'd for sure get the ring that when I opened my eyes and saw the iPhone in front of me I made this horrid face (I'm sure) trying to figure out what it was. Austin immediately asks me why the face and that's when I figured out it was the phone. Oh. Ok. So I get a phone for my 10th anniversary? Alright, I guess that's cool too, I mean I DID really want this phone. I just thought for a big anniversary like the TENTH I'd get something more sentimental like the ring with a special engraving, ya know? But that's okay, I'm cool with the phone. I start piddling with it because I really am happy I have the phone but Austin can sense I'm a little sad and he asks me if I wanted the ring.
Well, I'm not gonna lie. I REALLY REALLY wanted that ring. It's not like it was expensive at all, it was totally affordable. He acts frustrated like he screwed up and then tells me that he WAS gonna get the ring and that he had it online with something already engraved on it and all he had to do was order it but he started thinking that it was JUST a ring and he could get it for me anytime but the PHONE was sooo cool and seemed like a more perfect gift for me for a 10 year anniversary present. Hmm.
NOW, don't get me wrong or call me high maintenance. I LOVE my phone. I really really do. I was just thrown for a loop I guess so I do feel a little sad that I don't have the ring that I could look at everyday for the next 50 years reading the engraving that Austin chose for me on our tenth anniversary unlike the phone that will fade after about 5 years at the most. But that's okay.
Oh well. Maybe a gold band on my 11th? I hate that number though. It's so odd and One-y.
I love you baby, and I love my phone. Thanks for loving me :)
