My Kinda Gift

Not many ladies I know would love a Christmas gift like the one I got from my awesome husband. In fact, Janice asked Dave "are you absolutely sure she'll like this gift?"

(One lady I know would and if she reads this she should identify herself immediately...)

What means the most to me about this Christmas gift is the effort it took to plan this gift and execute it.

We are going to Tucson to watch the University of Arizona Wildcats play basketball and will spend the night at a great resort. He had to buy tickets from a broker in Atlanta, reserve a hotel room, make overnight arrangements for 5 kids, check our calendar, buy a sweatshirt and do all of this without me knowing. And he did it! Boy was I surprised and am I ever excited.

I've been a huge fan of U of A basketball for years. I had season tickets back in the day, for 4 out of the 5 years I was in Tucson (1984-1989). Lute Olsen is a great man and an amazing coach.

I think this is their year to win.

Go Cats!

I'll take lots of pictures! K?!

I think I know of this lady you speak of.....did you happen to see her today?

Janet said...

Yes, and she's as cute as a button but she prefers baseball over basketball. ;-)

I do think baseball is her favorite...and is she, well, maybe a little forgetful!!! :}

Great effort brings great joy - well done Dave!

Janey, may Jesus bless you and yours greatly in 2007 :)

Yay Dave!!!
Yay Janet!!

I am wondering what trip I would drool over. It wouldn't be a sports event.
Perhaps a trip to New York to see Regis and Kelly.
That would be a blast!

Have fun!

I had better fess up before more is revealed!!!

I think that is a wonderful gift. (Good job, Dave!!)
I think he was being a great companion--using what he knows you love to surprise you. Has he been listening to some tapes?
Have a wonderful time and drive safe!!

What a great gift. Way to go Dave. I think the night in the resort is the real gift! Schedule a pedicure or massage too! Is it where Aunt Dorothy stayed for your graduation? Have fun, and go Wildcats!

I don't know what that means? I tried to log in as a blogger, and look what showed up. Funny. It's just plain Sue. I'll continue to be anonymous, if that's o.k.

Oh, it really is the thought that counts! And when there's enough thought, the perfect gift comes along with it! What a blessing. Have a wonderful trip!

I used to live there during those years too! Just think--we could have walked by each other and NEVER EVEN KNOWN IT!
I graduated Tucson High school--- right across the street from UOA.
I moved away to marry my husband... and dream of someday going back.
Merry Christmas!

WOW! Dave good job planning...Janet you little tomboy! Actually, I would have killed to see the Cardinals play in the World Series! I really wanted to go to the parade. Dad would be proud we are such sports enthusiasts!! (sp)
