    Ok....here's the deal. Rick and I are going to be celebrating our 30th...YES...30 anniversary in September. I'm all excited for sure. Anyway, since he's been retired from his job for a year, and working at the airport (he's in the security dept) our finances aren't what they used to be. We've decided to not get each other anything expensive. I'm all for that. In fact..he's gone so far as to say this upcoming RoadTrip is our anniversary gift to each other.

    So...right before we nod off to sleep...I asked him if we were going to go out to dinner or anything, and he says 'well, yes, of course.....and you're going to LOVE your gift!" WHAT!!!! what gift??? We weren't supposed to get each other anything! He does that evil laugh that he's so good at.

    Now I want to do the 20 questions thing "Is it bigger than a bread box" Can I eat it? Can I use it? Will I like it? What is it? He's so no help.

    And I've got to come up with something to get for him. And since I'm a SAH Nana...I've got no income..so he's paying for his own gift! :207:

    Sorry..I had to get that off my chest!

    LOLOLOL! You gotta' love it, eh? It's hard Bev. We've made that same deal and I've broken it every time. :sigh; I just can't go without getting a gift for important dates. :D

    So, you can always do a coupon book for him. :D

    I was thinking more along the line of picking up something from EVERY Harley store we stop in on our trip. But I think I'm limited on space....hmmm..unless I pack it all in my handy dandy backpack.

    Purchasing costs $$$$.
    The coupon book costs time. Time together. Think anniversary! *LOL*

    That's cheating, if you agree inexpensive gifts or none at all then he should stick to the rules!

    :p

    Jodie, he's done this to me every time...You'd think I'd learn. For our 25th anniversary he got me these GORGEOUS huge diamond earrings! I wear them all the time. How can he top that???? My very own motorcycle? :thumbs_up:
