It's the thought that counts, right?


Today when Lee came home he had a box from UPS with a Cabela's label. I asked him what he had ordered for himself and he told me it was from me. Right. Something for me from Cabela's. Just where I would love to get something. I laughed and told him he was real funny. He opened up the box and pulled out some silk pajamas. Camouflage silk pajamas. I was laughing so hard I started crying. He told me he thought I needed something sexy for bed at night. Now what girl would not want camouflage silk pajamas in a size bigger than she wears. Needless to say, they did not look sexy on me. I told him it was all for the best because since they were camouflage he'd never find me in bed!

Silk lingerie I could understand but these???? Hilarious! He spent $70 on them and anyone who knows Lee knows that in and of itself is amazing. I guess I can't complain that he never brings me home anything on a whim but what's wrong with flowers?

I am cracking up right now. that is probably one of the most hilarious things i've heard in a LONG time. The thought is cute of Dad, but the execution is hilarious!

Alex said...

Wow!!! I wish so badly I could've been there to see you open that box! Seriously mom....I am cracking up!!! That is really cute and thoughtful of dad though! :) are you keeping them?

Pam said...

Not keeping them. They were huge and way too expensive for what they were. come on, camo???? the picture makes them look way cuter than they were!

Natty said...

I loved this blog. Thanks for the good laugh. You blew it, he might never buy you anything again. You could have worn them just for him. No one will see. He is quite the shopper.

That is so funny! I love it. Dad, you are hilarious! I think you should return them for your size and keep them. Poor Dad! It is the thought that counts though.

Kalie said...

Ahhh that is so cute :) Isn't there a Cabela's store in UT you could exchange for your size at Thanksgiving :) Pretty funny...never thought that you would receive anything from that store did ya?

I was talking on the phone to him when he told me he ordered these for you! I was dieing. I thought they were going to be for your anniversary! I too am dieing that he spent $70 on them. For a cheapo like dad to spend that much?

This is one of the funniest blogs I have read in awhile. Did his feelings get hurt when you sent them back?

Lani said...

Oh my gosh... I love it! It is definitely the thought that counts, so funny!

Lee said...

I thought she could use them to hide from me if nothing else. She didn't even try them on. I guess I will cancel her Christmas present from Cabela's and buy her something real nice like a salad bowl or something exciting like that. No, my feelings are not hurt, It was worth the look of stupor on her face when she saw them!

Oh my! I'm cracking up. Reminds me of the wiper blades/Hawaii Chritmas only nothing could top that...not to mention, back beads. I think he's getting a lot better! Maybe in twenty years you'll work up to flowers and jewelry! HA!
