I look at it like this - You (husband) need to give me (wife) gifts and take me to dinner to let me know how happy you are to be married to me...and I (wife) give you (husband) a card because your gift is the fact that you are happy and married to me. Makes perfect sense to me!
Actually, this year I am surprising Husband because I have a gift for him that will hopefully be near the top, if not the top, of all gifts ever received. You see, Husband is a Redskins fan, 100% born and bred Redskins fan. Of all the different teams that have played together as Redskins, his all-time favorite player is John Riggins. It probably is this reason that our puppy is named John Riggins, Jr. aka 'Riggo'.
Husband sent me these beautiful roses to my office today (he gets double bonus points because of course all the ladies 'ooh & aah' and then the men feel like they need to be better husbands as well because of course they didn't send flowers to their wives in ages):
For my part - I got Husband THIS:I hope that he loves it, as I suspect he will. He has several Redskins jerseys, but this one is his all-time favorite player. Now he can stop lusting after all the #44 jerserys at the Redskins games when we go and he can be one instead.
You think that I may get bonus points now too? I think that his friends will be quite impressed.
