We Deserve Each Other

Today is the 15th anniversary of my first date with my husband, the irrepressible Cap'n Coupon.  We decided not to exchange gifts this year, but then I saw something for him so perfect, so ideal that I just had to buy it.  It was even on sale.  Which was fortunate because I did not have a coupon.

So in spite of the fact that the Cap'n does not appreciate it when I spend his precious, precious money at Target, I spent it anyway - secure in the knowledge that HE WOULD TOTALLY LOVE HIS PRESENT SO MUCH.

Would you like to see it? Here it is...

He was stoked.  He was thrilled.  He said: "Good job, Lydia.  I needed one of these" and then patted me on my haunches.

An hour later he sent me an email with a very nice message and the following attachment:

And if you watch the awesomeness of this Gladys video, you will note that the only thing more bad ass than her voice is the sweet gyration of the Pips in the background.  And then the Cap'n cut a little rug for me.

It is so nice to be married to someone as stupid as me is I am...

xo, Lydia

  1. Awww That is the best! Ya gotta love when they do something so corny that its awesome! LOVE IT!!

  2. Is the Cap'n familiar with I just discovered it myself. I haven't actually used it yet, so hopefully it's not a totally-lame-have-to-pay site, but I get off on clicking the coupons and seeing the "Total savings" creep up on the left-hand side. Even though I'm not actually shopping and saving money. Or even printing the coupons. Or doing anything other than clicking on random junk.

  3. Happy anniversary, Lydia + Cap'n. You're both bad ass.

  4. I have one of those for my coupons! He will lurve it!

  5. Okay, I am a newbie here, but you sort of freaked me out because I have never heard of any other woman besides myself being married to a Cap'n Coupon. I honestly didn't know any others existed! Couple that with the fact that I, also, picked up the same gift on clearance at Walgreens, and gave it to him for his birthday. He loved it cuz the old one he got for free from an accounting seminar 10 years ago was cracking and the lid flap thingy was being held together by elastic bands from the desk. However, I didn't get the "Your the Best Thing" clip sent to me, so you sCoReD on that one!
    Wow...I'll be we could share a lot of stories...
