What's in the bag?!

Today Kyle, Mom, Derek, and I were all in town shopping for various things. Well- my mom and I went into a Michaels, and Derek and Kyle went into Target because they didn't want to go into Michaels. Kyle asks "If there's a Wii can I buy it?!" and I, knowing Wii's sell out really fast, say and in a very sarcastic voice, "Sure Kyle, if there's a Wii you can buy it." and off the boys go, I didn't think anything more about it.
About 10 minutes later I get a phone call from Kyle...
Kyle-"Ok- they have a Wii! Can I really buy it?!"
Alli-"They have one?!?!"
Kyle-"YEAH! There's only one left can I get it?!"
Alli- "Kyle I wasn't being serious. Do we really have the money for that?"
Kyle-"Nooo... I won't get it."
Alli-"Ok"
Kyle- "ok bye"

I get off the phone and my mom gives me a little speech about how he is the one that earns the money and I just need to let him do it... so I call him back and tell him that he can get it, still not thinking he would buy it.
My mom and I are now standing next to the dollar bins in Michaels and I'm looking at ribbon (I love ribbon and I have a box that I have to still need to fill up so whenever I see ribbon on sale I try to get a few...)
Kyle walks in and has a Target bag in his hand.. I look like I've just seen a ghost and ask "What's in the bag?"
Kyle- "YAY! We got a Wii!"
Alli-"You're so lying, what's in the bag?!"
Kyle opens the bag- "A Wii!!"

I am seriously shocked. With high desperation and panic I say "Can I get some more ribbon?!"
I turn frantically to the ribbon and start picking various ribbons and every time I grab one I say "I want this one, and this one, and this one"
My mom is the background asks "Do you want a basket?!" As I'm carrying like 12 things of ribbon in my hands- I ended up getting 20. :)

There was a lady right next to us that is dying of laughter. It was pretty funny. She told us it totally made her day- and she hadn't laughed that hard in a long time. It was pretty funny.

Anyway- Long story short, Kyle bought a Wii. It's pretty fun to play :)

That's so funny because Zach did the exact same thing to me. It was a while ago but he wanted a wii soo badly but I told him if he wanted it then he had to pay for it by doing expotv.com. So he did and we drove around everywhere looking for one and
finally we got the last one at circuit city. We actualy sold it for more because after we had Jonah we never used it anymore.... It's hard being the wife sometimes. I understand.i would have to disagree with you're mom.. haha "the man may be the head of the house but the woman is the neck.. and we control the head!" hahaha

It sounded like Kyle wanted candy from a candy store.... cute! When you are first married its hard being on a tight budget, but you guys still don't have kiddos yet, so I'm glad you invested in something that you guys can play with before some kids will be entertaining you!
