So I had been talking to my DH about the Gypsy deal. First, I suggested it could be for my birthday (in December) and Christmas. He didn't really seem to bite. I thought, well, he doesn't want to do it because it wouldn't be a surprise then. So I suggested that I could buy it now, but that it would be my gift from Grandma (she likes to give us cash). He just joked about my Cricut habit. SO I thought, "he didn't say 'no'" and I went to Michael's the next day. That night, I confessed ... and HE told me that he had ordered the Gypsy for me off of cricutmachine.com already. He was planning to give it to me on October 30 (when he's going to a college football game). What a sweetie!!! BUT I did feel somewhat like Lucy, getting into a little bit of trouble. (And I'm sorry that I ruined the surprise, but I think it would have taken a lot out of me to have a good attitude while thinking that the great Gypsy deal was getting away.) Fortunately I was able to return the one that I bought to Michael's today. And I'm working on starting up my Gypsy now. This is going to be fun!

Enjoy your Gypsy; a lot of us really love ours. What a sweetie your husband is. It's too bad his surprise backfired, but the end result is good.

AAAAH what a sweetie. I got my Expression and Gypsy last year just bought it myself from HSN. About a month after (Oct) I got them I asked DH do you want to see what you got me for Christmas and he said what so I said it again so he comes in here (my scraproom) and I show him my Expression setting on my work place (LOL LOL the thing is it was there for a month and he never noticed the difference in the size from my Little Bug) so he said OK just get money out of the back and pay it off in full. LOL LOL . I waited a a bit and said well now do you want to she what you got me for my Birthday (Birthday is Feb) he said heck your birthday is 3 months away. LOL LOL He said ok what I showed him my Gypsy and again he saw me from time to time with that in my hand and never asked. Again he said get the money and pay it off.LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL . He usually gets me little things for my scraping but not the big Ticket thing. I usually just get them for myself. He did say he thought the Cricut did look different but couldn't figure out why LOL LOL LOL LOL.

Love your story ... sounds like you ended up with TWICE THE FUN! LOL How sweet of your DH to get the G package for you. You may have ruined the surprise, but you also guaranteed that you got it timely. How great that you were able to return your purchase. But even greater ... just think of all the fun and creativity you are going to have with your new Gypsy and all those great carts you're getting during the promotion too!

YIPPEEEEE! BigGrin

I tried the same thing, but just forwarded a couple of emails to DH. He hates to ruin surprises too. So I'm guessing he's not biting. I have a feeling if I would have talked to him about it he would just tell me to go ahead and get it, but I don't know if I can take that chance...
