Christmas in July. Saturday I came home from work to find our new pool.
[Unfortunately, it's been too cold out ever since Dave bought it for me to get to use it...but he and the kids (along with their brand new life jackets and floating boat) went out yesterday. Crazy polar bears.]

Anyway...yesterday I came home from work to find this:

Now, this may not mean anything to you. It's just a picture of a bed, right? Wrong. This is my brand new, super-duper, comfortable...reminds me of Jamaica...bed that Dave picked up yesterday. Sorry the picture doesn't really do it justice because, you see, as soon as I saw it I hopped up into it (it's really high off the ground) and fell asleep! I took this picture just now, this morning, after just quickly trying to tidy it up a bit. Dave got all the new sheets, and bed skirt, and duvet cover and everything...and put it all on himself! Ahhhhh....what a great sleep I just had.

Our old bed was just that. O-L-D. And, it was cheap when it was purchased so you can just imagine how (incredibly not) comfy cozy that was. Not to mention it was a double. A double! That is basically a kids bed.

Ummm...yes...that is the old head-board just kinda' propped up behind the new bed. We'll have to pick a new one out together. Or, maybe we could just make something kinda' cool and country-ish. Whatever, I don't care. I love, love, love my new bed.

Is it time for a nap yet?

Boy! You are special. A pool and now a bed! Amazing!

I am soooo jealous. We did the same thing, bought a cheap bed a million years ago. We both hate it immensely. It's a queen, but I would love a king. Mike is my exact opposite... sleepwise.

As for the pool yeah it's fickin' cold. Abby was in all afternoon though. Brrr, it was only 76.

You have a wonderful man who clearly values his amazing wife. I'm thinking these great surprises deserve a *special* thank you.
