These are pics my DH took while gift exchanges were going on. The hidden journaling is below.
Hidden Journaling: My mom had placed a Christmas order for several items from Fanatics.com. The jacket for Robert hadn't arrived, and she was having trouble with tracking. I offered to call and see what I could find out for her. I was fortunate enough to get a very friendly and knowledgeable customer rep and to my benefit, she was also very thorough! After telling me that the jacket was scheduled to be delivered within the next couple of days via USPS, she said she would like to make sure that ALL items were received. She proceeded to name off items one-by-one; Penguins mug (check), West Ham United Jersey (check), Penguins full zip jacket (check), Women's Chase Elliott hoodie…LOL yep, I began to belly laugh. A snort or two may have escaped, as well! I told her that I was pretty sure I wasn't supposed to know that, because that hoodie is most definitely meant for me! She felt horrible and apologized over and over!
When I called my mom to give her the status of the jacket, I was still laughing. It apparently was a contagious laugh because she started to laugh right along with me, not knowing what we were laughing about. I eventually calmed myself enough to tell her that I was going to love my new Chase hoodie. She made me promise to ‘act surprised' when I opened it, so I did! Now, this wouldn't have been as funny as it was except for one little thing, the day before, I had wrapped my mom's gift, a Kitchen Aid stand mixer, that was to replace the ancient one she had. As I was putting the tag on her gift, she called to tell me that she and dad were going to town to buy a new mixer because the beaters wouldn't stay in and the turntable had stopped working. She could tell by the tone of my voice and how I was talking that something was up. I finally had to confess that I already had her new mixer and after listening to her complain that she was going to be so behind on her baking, I broke down and told her we would be over that afternoon to give her gift early, 3 weeks early! She ruined her gift, Karma gave me mine!
