Christmas surprise

So, my husband had me CONVINCED in the craziness leading up to Christmas that he’d forgotten to buy me a gift. I even tweeted (man, that verbification still sounds dirty to me…) about it:

And I was ok with it! Really! So imagine my surprise on Christmas morning when he handed me a wrapped envelope…



Holy crap. I’m going to Blogher. In Chicago. With a 2-month old.
