I Have the Best Hub Evah.

Well hello strangers, I am back. My boss is off this week, so despite a huge workload that is burying me I am here with you! What a gal!

Christmas was just lovely this year. I think I got the best gifts evah this year. I made up a new song to celebrate my gifts: "Have a Coachy, Coachy Christmas, right this very moment..." Catchy, no? This is my song for this year because Santa was goooood to True in the Coach bag department. I got 2 wristlets, a handbag, and an ipod cover. And three of those were from Hub - now, if you know anything about Hub its that he is cheap (frugal? cautious with money? whatever, the man does not like to spend money). So I open some gifts from him, and he got me cool stuff (books I wanted, peppermint foot lotion, other goodies) and as I am getting mad because he didn't get me the one thing that I actually dropped hints about (the new White Stripes cd), he hands me a box. I unwrap it to find a shoe box. Did he buy me Manolos? Let's not get crazy. So I open it to find a Coach box inside, tied with a pretty red ribbon. Inside was a holiday patchwork wristlet. Woo hoo! I am in shock, as Hub thinks that Coach bags are the biggest ripoff on the planet, next to Kate Spade bags and Louis Vuitton bags and all the other bags near and dear to my heart. Then he hands me the next gift. Again, a shoe box, again with a Coach box inside it, this time with a holiday patchwork handbag in it. My eyes are as big as saucers. He tells me I can pick one of the two to keep (which he later relented on and said I could keep both. Yup, I am spoiled.). And after that ANOTHER shoebox, with ANOTHER Coach box in it. What the...??? This time its the khaki signature ipod cover with hot pink trim. My Hub, the man who only buys shoes when he can get them at Kohl's for $5, bought me THREE Coach items! Then we go to my mom's, and she bought me another Coach wristlet! Whoa! Can a girl get any luckier than that??? Sing it with me..."have a Coachy, Coachy Christmas..."
---------
On a less-self-absorbed note, Princess LOVED Christmas. She loved her gifts and she thinks Santa is the greatest guy ever. Well, I guess that is still self-absorbed because its my kid becoming like her mom and loving to get gifts. Too bad. I also love giving gifts, I will have you know. I bought Hub a Steel Curtain jersey, signed by all 4 members of the Steel Curtain (Hub is a huge Steelers fan). And I bought him a few books on choppers, and only one of them had my next husband's pic in it (Billy Lane). So see, that wasn't a selfish gift at all. Hardly. Hmm.

Woohoo! I had a Coachy Christmas too! :-) My Hubby said, "The only thing better than one Coach purse, is two!" He got me the Signature Duffle with the suede at the bottom, and the matching Wristlet. He calls my Wristlet a "satellite bag".

Shall we go shopping together now? :-)

Wow does dad have a fever? He got you bags for Christmas, how very unlike cheap old dad. I love the patchwork bag. I thought that I threw enough hints to get that under the tree this year. Guess I'll just have to admire yours until I convince diddy the need for one.

I thought I made out with three necklaces (one in a little blue box--ooh), but I'd have just about died over three Coachies!
Lucky you!

The only Coach I got for Christmas was the little black one my boyfriend's cousin got for me in Chinatown on her honeymoon but it's still adorable! They're making fakes much better than they used to. It took me 3 whole days to figure out how to see it was fake! Only after studying my real one vs. the fake one did I figure it out. And I still love it! ... Now to stare for awhile at my boyfriend's Rolex, also bought in a dark corner in Chinatown ...

Congrats on the Coachy Christmas. I'm with Hub on not seeing the intrinsic value, but as long as they make you happy, that's what matters.

Happy New Year!

Hi! Did you go to UHS? If so, what year did you graduate? I'm just curious because I'm from there, too. I just randomly found your blog a few months ago and just started reading it again today.
