The Birthday Girl


Today is a big day in our house! Today is my wife's birthday. And before you even think about a number, you can be sure I'm not going to reveal her age. I have learned a few things in all our years of marriage! LOL (Don't even try counting the candles...it is not the right number!)

It was a very relaxing day...she got to sleep in...she got to spend an afternoon watching DVD's and opening gifts...and the family went out to dinner.

And what big, romantic gift did I give her? Nothing. At least nothing romantic. No jewelry. No flowers. Nope...it was way better than that. It was better because I gave her something she truly loves. Something she really wanted. Something that will entertain her and make her happy for hours and hours. And hours!

So what was this magical gift?

The X-Files.

Not just one season. Not just the movie. Everything! All nine seasons, the movie, the movie poster, the episode guide...everything.

She'll be watching DVD's for a long time...and loving every minute of it.

Happy Birthday!

We got the set for Christmas and have been watching it steadily. We're on season 3 right now.

Happy Birthday to your wife! Hope it was a good one.

Wow. I thought that I was an X-Files geek. I guess I shall now bow to your wife's superior X-Files geekness.

But happy birthday to your wife!!

Happy Berfday to the missus. Boy that's a nice gift, I could totally get into spending a week or two on my couch diving into that collection.

That sounds like one perfect birthday! Not all girls love jewelry as you know. Hours of your favourite serie, thats what I call a treat!
Happy birthday to her!

Last Chirstmas I gave Mr. Jazz the whole of Six Feet Under. He loved it. Truth be told, I was thrilled with the gift too.

Happy birthday to the Mrs. Sounds like she had a great one!

Rebecca said...

Love the gift, Em. Much better than flowers.

Gretchen said...

Oh, yeah, baby!

The X-files rock. I likey me some David Duchovny. Smart and cute. I can pick 'em. Apparently, so can your wife. Don't tell me it's about the smoking man--it's all about David. ;)

Happy B'day to your bride. Finally, a reason to like January.

The key to a great gift is giving someone what they want and what you know they will enjoy, rather than what is conventional or what you think they should want. Good job! And happy birthday to your wife.

Now THAT is an awesom gift!!! Can I give you my husband's number and maybe you could call him sometime....with gift suggestions?

That gorgeous box set was a Christmas gift from my boyfriend this year. :)

Hope the two of you are looking forward to the new movie! July 25, 2008.

Well aren't you the best husband ever! The complete X-Files - wow! Sounds like a heavenly way to spend the winter -

Jenster said...

Holy cow!! I was going to send a link to my husband for pretty earrings as an anniversary gift, but the complete X-Files is so much better! Seriously!!

Happy birthday to your very lucky wife!

Thomas said...

For that kind of gift, I will marry you. You are a far better man than myself.
