It's that time of year....when the world falls in love every song you hear seems to say....Merry Christmas!!!
I love that song. Especially this year because something huge has happened. I have fallen in love. Now I know what you are thinking, "Ok right we get it...... you're in love.....you love Kevin.....blah blah blah...." Well, it's not Kevin. I mean I totally LOVE him, but my heart has been stolen by something else. Something wonderful. I didn't think I could feel this way, but I do and I couldn't be happier!
You know in the movies when there is a girl and she is out with her friends chatting and laughing and then something catches her eye and the music swells and suddenly she sees the man of her dreams and it's a huge spectacular moment? Well the exact same thing happened to me this Saturday. It was incredible! Ok before you start to judge me I should probably stop and tell you that it wasn't some handsome stranger that I saw........it was a coat........the most beautiful and perfect coat I have ever seen! It was displayed right in front of the store so I ran over and touched it softly and BAM. I knew. It was the coat of my dreams! I should back track about two weeks earlier................
I really needed a coat so Kevin took me coat shopping. I ended up buying one from Old Navy. It's a fine coat. It is very simple and it looks like something I would buy so I was content, but my heart yearned for something more.......Ok back to the good part.........
We were Christmas shoe shopping with my family (a huge tradition we do every year) and like I was saying, suddenly there it was......the coat of my dreams! I ran into the store and threw off my Old Navy coat and put it on (of course it was the last one and it was just the right size) and wow. I mean WOW. It was perfect! It fit like a glove!.....errr I mean a coat.....you get what I mean ;) I looked at the price tag and it said $128.00. For a split second all my hopes and dreams were shattered. Kevin must have known what I was thinking because he told me something wonderful. All coats were 40% off........ This beautiful perfect coat was only $48.00!!!!!!!!! Aaaaah! Kevin whipped out his card and bought me all the happiness that money can buy! haha! It was mine! The coat was all mine! It was one in a million..........there was nothing like it! I was so giddy! I'm sure the girl at the register thought I was some spoiled little nutcase! I practically skipped out of the store thinking I was the luckiest girl in the world and suddenly Kevin stopped and looked up and said, "Oh look Boo, your mom has the same coat!"
Yep. My mom was wearing the exact same coat.
Well, what can I say......great minds think alike! hehe! I'm sure you are all dying to see this amazing coat......unfortunately I am sick and refuse to take a pic of me with it on (even though the coat would probably make me look beautiful even though I am so horribly hideous...) so I took a picture of it on the ground. Doesn't really give you the full affect, but it still works ;) Merry Christmas! May your New Years dreams come true just like mine did :)
