We're about a week away from starting the build-out on the new cake shop, and since I'll need to be able to deliver more than one cake at a time on just the front seat of my current BMW 328xi (which I adore), he ordered me a new BMW X5 in mineral green (my favorite color). I measured the back cargo area, and it's HUGE (comparatively speaking). thumbs_up.gif It should be here next week. Have I mentioned he's the sweetest!? I have to work my ever-livin' butt off to pay for all this stuff, but hey, I like to keep busy.

I'll post pics of the shop once it gets underway; I've been keeping it on the down low because I didn't want to...uh...jinx it. icon_wink.gif

happy happy car dance

Just to clarify HOW sweet he is: He actually traded in his beautiful, pristine, bright red, lifted Dodge 3500 quad cab pickup with every possible bell and whistle, chrome everywhere, *MAN TRUCK*, so I could get my delivery car. I think his exact words were, "You never blink an eye when I buy new equipment for my business, it's your turn." And, he's selling a skid steer from our other business, for the down payment for my shop.

Just a minute; I'm getting all va-clempt...I'll give you a topic...discuss amonst yourselves...

And after 22 years, I still think he's so hot! How teenager-ish is this?--today I'm wearing one of his t-shirts, and it smells like his Gucci cologne, and it still makes me swoon. heehee

Must be the sunshine today, but so far it's been a heckuva day. icon_smile.gif

Stef, that is SO cute! You made me smile reading sounds like a high school girl! Always be grateful when your guy realizes just how much we do and how much we give,(usually without a word about it) and finally reciprocates. It's definitely a great feeling to be loved like that!!

Hey Christine,

Yes, he is a DEAR for trading in the 'guy truck' for the 'cake hauler' icon_wink.gif, but I do get to write it off, and we save $700/mo in the trade.

The new shop is going to be in PF. PM me and I'll tell you where etc.; you should come by! Not a walk-in shop, but definitely in a great spot, new construction. We get the architect copies Monday, and they should be starting on the build-out by end of next week or the following Monday if all goes well. So, lots of excitement next week. I sign for the new car tomorrow a.m., and it should be in by next Friday. DH wants me to do the license plate with "GOTCAKE" on it--what do you think? (I thought of thumbs_up.gif
