Valentine's Day 2010

This year for Valentine's Day, Adam and I decided to mix it up a little and get each others gift from Goodwill. You can usually find some pretty interesting items in there if you go at the right time..but you kind of have to be a "digger".  I am definitely not a "digger".  If I don't see anything I like within the first couple of minutes, I'm outta there.  Anywho, back to the presents.  We actually first stopped at the Salvation Army, because when I tell Adam we need to go to Goodwill, he automatically goes into "brainless man mode" and thinks they are most likely the same store.  Uhh, wrong.  Salvation Army is not near at neato as Goodwill (in case you were wondering).  Turns out, Adam finds my gift at Salvation Army. Scary thought, but I'm rolling with it at this point.  I searched for-ev-er and couldn't find anything interesting for Toasty so we left. 

I ended up going to Goodwill today while we were down in Venice. Errrr, holy guacamole, that place was packed! I found some fun things that I liked, but couldn't find anything for the boy toy! I had finally reached my breaking point.  I decided that I was going to go to Target, find something really random and fun, and tell him it was from Goodwill.  Yes, that's right, I was going to straight up lie.  But then I decided I probably shouldn't do that because I am a horrible liar.  So I am driving home, trying to come up with an excuse about why I don't have him an awesome gift, the BAM..it hits me.  Adam has recently taken an interest in cigars. I went to the ABC store, stood & stared at 5,000 cigars, then finally just asked the man which one was the best, then asked him for a "chopper" (which I was quickly informed that "it's technically called a cigar cutter") and I was off! I mean, you can totally buy cigars and junk at Goodwill, no? Ehh, whatever.  Oh yeah, I also took two of the cigar boxes that they had sitting outside.  Adam got really excited because he thought the boxes were full of cigars.  Psssh, naw homie, that ain't happnin'!



I am sure you are just dying to know what he got me...or maybe not, but I am going to share it with you anyways.  Now remember, the original plan was to get each other a funny gift, something totally random...

BOOM..in your face! Roller blades!

I'm already a pro..look at my spinning skillzzz!

oh snap...safety first!

Good thing he bought me the "X Game" knee and elbow pads! Please excuse my appearance..

I'm not gonna lie, they are pretty much brand new, the wheels definitely look brand new, and they were only $3.99! Shhyyeeaaahh!

Now, I know you are thinking, "when are you ever going to actually wear those? That is soooo 1999!!"

Well peeps, this is South Florida, roller blades are still in.  People roller blade here like it's their job.  I should be fine, but will these be making an appearance in Alabama? Absolutely not.
