Well then I think you should take some pics on Sunday.

Presents are awesome especially when you do not expect them.

I love presents, but the thing that I really get a kick out of is when the present is a SUPRISE! I LOVE suprises!

Sugar knickers--sweet! Although I do think it sounds like a porn star name.

Isn't it great to NOT have kids so you guys have extra money to buy presents for each other?

Or you can give a gift that costs no money at all, like I will take the kids to the park today and you can sleep in, go for a ride, go visit your friend across the street.

Of course! Gifts don't always have to cost money! I think some of the best gifts are ones that come from the heart and are made by the person giving them. Things like letters, poems, songs, art...I would be very honored to receive a gift like that.

However, it is still nice to indulge each other in something worldly that we both might like.

Congrats on the present! I do indeed love surprise gifts, esp. cycling related ones. It is cool that your boyfriend knows you well enough, and listens well enough to get you something you want, need and do not have.

As I am the only cyclist in our family, I usually just get gift cards for the LBS and I have to surprise myself.

They just go down right below the knee. I actually think its just the name.

But they are for cool weather, which is great cause thats about all Colorado as had.
