With this Reel I Thee Wed

After Kristian proposed to me on Valentine’s Day I told him that I felt that I should buy him an engagement gift, after all he had just spent a pretty penny on my sparkly new friend which resides on my left hand. I felt he needed something special to mark the occasion. When I asked him what he wanted he mentioned he would really like to have some fancy schmancy new fishing reel. Now he already has God knows how many fishing reels but apparently they all do different things and catch different type of fish and this particular reel is like the Loubies of fishing reels. And since he doesn’t question (often) why I need so many shoes I figured I would just go along with it.

The reel itself is pretty pricey, granted it’s nowhere near as pricey as my sparkly friend but considering every spare penny I have is going into this wedding I didn’t exactly have these funds just laying around. I promised him that I would get him an engagement gift at SOME point while we were engaged. It could be the day before the wedding but it would be while we were engaged. Well thanks to my wonderful xmas bonus check from work I was finally able to afford his fancy schmancy new reel. So I made my way over to Ebay and purchased this little bad boy.



My initial plan was to wait and give it to him on Valentine’s Day which is our 1 year engagiversary but he’s going down to the Outerbanks in January for his fishing bachelor party trip and I know he would want to have this reel with him. So I plan to give it to him as soon as I receive it (which will hopefully be soon). I’m not counting this as one of his xmas presents since he didn’t count my ring as my Valentine’s present and still got me a necklace in addition to the ring (he’s awesome right?). So I’m hoping it comes soon so there is some separation between this present and his xmas goodies.

I'm not a fishing expert, but that looks like a great reel! So nice when you know exactly what to get someone - I always like when FI tells me what he would like so I can get him something he really wants.

So...he won't wear that on his finger though right? Cause that'd be freakin' heavy. I love that you got it for him. It doesn't matter what we want to get them or vice versa - I think when giving any present it's important to think of what that person would want most - even if we think it's ridiculous. Of course there are limits like if S wanted me to buy him a cow or a pony...

I love that you had that dream of us two! It'd be so fun. But hey, I'm planning on growing my hair so in a year or so that could very well be true :)

Take a picture of K when he opens the pressie so we can see how crazy happy you've just made him - on top of how crazy happy you always make him of course!
