Oh My Gosh! What a Big Surprise!

 I was working on the computer, and I received a text from a friend in OK, and she told me to get on Facebook. So I said, "ok", as I figured it was some sort of drama going on. LOL
  I start reading the news feeds, and I see this post from my husband, Clay. 
On the 24th of July, Shirley and I will have our 40th anniversary. We don't buy presents, but since she has put up with me for 40 years, thought I would buy her something for this special year. We have had so many wonderful years, two great children, a great SIL and DIL, and the most wonderful gift of all, our grandchildren. Happy early anniversary to my soulmate. Come to the sun room!!!!. Love you!!
 So when I got to the sunroom, he handed me a sweet note, and told me to go and look in his truck. When I got there, this is what I found (except in the box).
 It is a brand new Babylock Ellegeo Plus embroidery machine! You can read about it HERE.
  I have been wanting to switch back to Babylock as I have the most wonderful dealer around. I also love the extra long hoops for appliqueing names on things.
 His now famous post on FB has 172 comments! Wow! We are popular! LOL Our friends were anxiously awaiting for me to find my surprise, and I wasn't even paying attention. I think everyone had a good laugh for the day. I know I did when I was reading all of the comments.
 I also had a few tears. I was so completely overwhelmed to say the least.  Thank you, my dear husband. It's been a wonderful 40 years! (almost)
