    Exclamation Merry Christmas to me!

    My parents came over for supper last night and while we are sitting waiting for it to finish baking, my dad walks in with this big wrapped box. he hands it to me and says 'Merry Christmas!" I'm a little confused Dh comes running in the room with the camera and I was getting a little nervous. So....




    it is a Cricut Expression!!!!!!!!

    Whooohoooooo!!!!!! My mom didn't want to wait till Christmas because she wanted me to have more than 2 weeks to play with it before the baby comes. I'm not complaining

    There is a funny story that goes with this too. Tuesday night Dh and I were at Michael's and I was showing him the cricut and explaining what it could do. He was actually impressed The expression was on sale for 299.99, but there is no way we can get it right now.
    The next day I check craigslist (which I do a couple times a week) and there is a cricut expression for $225! I call Dh and am whining cause it's killing me that we can't afford it. He actually checked the post while I am on the phone with him. After I hung up I thought he sounded kinda fishy and I was hoping he didn't go ahead and get it (cause we can't afford it) but at the same time hoping he does
    Turns out he called me mom and she wasn't around so he emailed the girl about it. Them he called my dad and was explaining this to him wanting to know if they want to go halves on it, and my dad just starts laughing. Dh is confused, until my dad tells him that that is the EXACT SAME add that my mom just bought a cricut from for me You have to understand that this is the first time my mom has EVER looked at craigslist and this was the first post on the page! She totally bought it out from under DH and stole his thunder!
    So my mom had called right away and was actually getting it when Dh emailed and called my dad about it!. Too funny!

    Anyway....it came with a 12X12 mat, spatula, Plantin Schoolbook, and Accent Essentials. It was practically new, she said she probably only had about 5 hours of play on it. I think it may need a new blade and probably a new mat, but who cares!
