As much as I’d hate to admit it, I fricking LOVE that Mariah Carey song! So much so I may have gone and purchased it off iTunes before my trip to Taiwan so I could play it on repeat while I was flying and sing along with it while pretending I’m that little girl from the movie Love Actually…
Anyways…before I embarrass myself any further, I’m BACK bitches! Sorry that it’s taken me a couple of days to get my life back in order – I was hit by a severe case of the flu combined with pharyngitis. What’s a pharyngitis? That’s what I asked! It kinds sounds like a fat version of laryngitis, no?
Anyways, this lame cold totally knocked me off my ass and I was forced to stay home on NYE – so please don’t ask me what awesome event did I attend on New Year’s Eve. The only even I attended was asleep in my bed at 12:05am. Husband was seriously contemplating whether marrying me was the best decision he ever made. In fact, we had this conversation on New Year Eve:
Husb: Hmph. So I guess this is what they mean by that ‘in sickness and in health’ vow.
Me: Fuck that. Notice when I wrote our vows that I specifically didn’t included that one?
Husb: Oh yeah! Screw it, I don’t have to look after you!
Me: So go out partying. I don’t care. If I was in your position I would have peaced a long time ago. Left you with a couple of Percodans and some bourbon and wished you a happy new year.
Husb: No, I’ll stay and look after you.
Aw – isn’t he the best. Either that or he’s totally whipped.
Anywho – One question I’ve been asked way too many times in the last few weeks is “WHAT did
Husband get you?!?” I get it – everyone must think that because I’m a Trophy Wife, and Husband always buys me extravagant gifts, you must think that he goes all out for Christmas and buys me something extraordinary, right? RIGHT?
Wrong. Husband got me absolutely nothing for Christmas. Why? It’s not because he’s a douche – it’s the exact opposite. We don’t get each other Christmas presents, Birthday presents or any other kind of gifts on these occasions when gifts are expected because I hate being limited to getting gifts on just one or 2 days of the year. I mean, my birthday is in April, and Christmas is in December, so if I really wanted something in May, WHY should I have to wait all the months until December to get it? I’m lucky in that if I want something, I generally just take the credit card and buy it. This way, I can get myself gifts every single day of the year and not just on two specified days.
I know, I know – all you sentimental and girly girls out there are all going to be like – but what about the surprise element?! You know, surprises are cute, but I’m 33. I know exactly what I want and I don’t want to be disappointed when Husband surprises me with something that’s just a little off the mark.
Although, this rule often does not apply with my mother – in fact, my mother knows me so well, here are all the gifts she surprised me with this Christmas. And OMG was I surprised!
Two pairs of Ferragamo heels.
Lovely new earrings.
A cookbook – Husband is super excited about all the carb loading he’s planning on doing with these recipes.
And finally, the pièce de résistance, an absolutely stunning Chanel leather jacket. I literally swooned when I put this on.
Oh Momma Lin – you are without doubt the best ma in the world. I love you so.
