We're both the sentimental type, so he's not just looking for the newest, coolest gadget (which would actually make things a lot easier).
We never really tell each other what we want for our birthdays; we just try to come up with something meaningful on our own.
But Matt did give me a hint this year, which really helped. Lately, he keeps saying how nice it would be to sit by a nice, warm crackling fire. Well, our fireplace has never been used before, so we're always afraid that it's not safe without a professional chimney sweep first.
So, I knew that's exactly what I would do-- get the chimney peeps in here and have a big, warm crackling fire roaring when he came home tonight.
Surprise! Instead, this is what he will get when he comes home tonight...

Cute, but not quite birthday present material.
Did I mention that his birthday is TODAY??
I'm running out of time, I know. I do have plans to pick up dinner from one of his favorite places: Mama Lucia's. Amazing Italian food. Fettucine Bolognese, Pasta Carbonera, Penne Ala Vodka... my mouth is watering just thinking about it.
But that's still not really a present.
I wouldn't normally procrastinate like this, but Niall has been blowing chunks all weekend. Serious chunks. Tell you all about that tomorrow ;)
I also think we need to take into account here that Matt just got back from a bachelor party in Vegas, so please don't feel one bit sorry for him.
Ok, off to Target, wish me luck!
Click it or ticket! Just kidding, but please vote for us :)
