You better watch out, you better not cry...

Well, I cried. 

I cried happy tears this evening when I came home after a super long, incredibly hectic, and frustrating day at work to find a Louis Vuitton box under our tree!

Eric came to my store this evening "just to say hello because he knew I wasn't having an awesome day"... Well, truth be told, he (with the help of another manager and associate) purchased my favorite bag (Melrose in Amarante) without me ever knowing! I was busy helping clients, trying to break free so I could chat with him, and then after I came back to the floor from making a quick run to the stock room, he vanished! Justin, an associate at our store and one of Eric's partners in crime, told me that Eric said he would "be right back". After a follow up phone call, Eric said he had a sudden stomach ache and had to leave immediately. Gross, but believable. So I felt horrible that he drove all the way to the Galleria (35 minutes) and I never even got to talk to him! He assured me that it was fine, and he was just out and about running errands anyway.

When I finally got home this evening around 11:30pm, Eric said that our neighbors brought us a Christmas present for us to open; he said, "go get it, it's the gift bag under the tree".. So I walked over to the tree, picked up the gift bag without even noticing the large Louis Vuitton box right next to the bag, and brought the gift into the kitchen for us to open. He started laughing, by which I was completely confused. He asked me if there was anything else under the tree, so I went back in the formal living room and immediately noticed the big brown box!!! I was stunned. I just looked at it for several seconds and then, without looking away, I asked, "what's that?" To which Eric replied, "it looks like a Louis Vuitton box!" Then I said, "whose is that?!?" Eric just laughed, then said, "who do you think it's for?"

At that point I knew exactly what was in the box. Pretty much from day one {well, that's a lie, on day one every single product looked amazing to me} I have wanted the Melrose bag in Amarante. And that's what's in the box. He let me take it out and hold it, but then he made me put it back and said I'm not allowed to open it again until Christmas. {Definitely do-able since I've been staring at that bag on the shelf in our store for about 260 days now! Haha!}

I'm shocked, ecstatic, and sooooo looking forward to Christmas day when I can start carrying my new, gorgeous bag.

It's been official for a long time, but now it's even more official-- I HAVE THE MOST WONDERFUL HUSBAND IN THE WORLD!

I love you, Eric!
Thank you for spoiling me :)
