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). 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.
happy happy car dance
How exciting for you! Congrats on the new car and the shop. It's always nice to have a hubby that spoils you rotten (I have one of those too!)
What? That's freaking sweet!!
Thank your lucky stars you snagged a good one, and good luck on the opening of your shop!!
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, so...now 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.
Stef, that is SO cute! You made me smile reading that....it 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!!
Awwwwe... that is so sweet. And his gesture is awesome too. Have fun with your new toy... I must say I'm a tad bit mineral green with envy... I needz me a new car.
Does he give lessons???
Congrats on the new surprise purchase and having a wonderful hubby!
Stef, you are so lucky! You've got a great hubby and a new shop opening. brat!
WoW! That's awesome, congrats!!
So sweet...awww...good for you!
Stef, that is so sweet! He gave up some of his toys for you and cakes! That's love! And a business write-off too! LOL.
Where are you putting the shop? CDA, PF? I wanna stop by and see when done. Are you planning a walk in shop or by appt? Details!
Yes, he is a DEAR for trading in the 'guy truck' for the 'cake hauler' , 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
on the plate! LOL
