The Tale Of My New Tights

I'm loosing weight, but I'm not skinny. I'm not old, but I'm not young either.

My lovely husband decided to go to the mall to get me 2 pair of tights for Christmas. Instead of going into a legit store, he went into a small kiosk to get them. There is no returning these tights. Most tights in my mind are for college aged kids and younger. Not for 30 and 40 year olds. *Please take no offense if you wear them. They are just not my thing.

I bought 1 pair, and they were thicker tights. Still risky in my mind. I bought them for my husband just as much as myself.

I decided to go to this kiosk to try and return them. Of course it said on the receipt that you can only trade them in 3 days time. I tried to play dumb. Ya that didn't work.

I said to him, "Never buy something at a place like that again...EVER!" For the record they are being worn under my pants when it's cold.

He said, "Man you need to be more adventurous with how you dress. Show off your sexy side." He then said, "I'm not getting you anything anymore."

All weekend I've been sticking out my chest, walking all funny, and singing I'm Every Woman by Whitney Huston. He came up to me and said, "Why are you walking that way?" I said, "I'm practicing my sexy walk. I'm bringing sexy back." 

He laughed and said, "Well it's really not working for you." 

I said, "I'm doing all for you babe." ;)

Before we left the mall I saw these shoes:

I said, "Travis you have to get these shoes!" 

He said, "Whatever." 

I said, "You have got to try them on for me. They match the tights you bought me. You need to learn to be more adventurous in the way you dress."

He tried them on to amuse me, but didn't buy them.

Later I messaged him something I want him to buy to be more adventurous you know.

The sad thing was is that he didn't know if I was serious, or joking. I was so joking. Not that there's anything wrong with this shirt, it's just not me, or my husband. It sure matches the tights he bought me though.

While I appreciate the thought, stick with getting me things I ask for, or get something at a place where I can return an item if needed.

For the record he's not mad at me, and I'm not mad at him. While I appreciate him getting me things I just want to make sure I can use those things. The same goes for him. If a gift I got him wasn't going to be used I'd want him to take it back to get something that can be used.

What's something crazy you've gotten as a gift before?

That is so funny! He should've gotten the shoes. I haven't ever gotten a gift that I didn't appreciate, at least I can't remember if I have.

See, I have my husband trained never to buy me any clothing of any sort - even tights. Because god help him if he got me something that didn't fit. He'd be sleeping out in the shed for a month!

Let's see the tights!

I actually had Jason buy me 6 pairs of leggings. I don't wear them out in public as an every day thing, but I do wear them to my hip hop class. I like how they are so easy to move in, though they do show off every curve. So, as you can guess, Jason has no objections to me wearing them around the house too lol.

I agree though. I want a gift to be usable. If not, return it. I hate clutter as much as I hate waste.

That's funny about the shoes. :) I have gotten some weird books from my MIL. She knows I like to read, and she enters contests, if it's a book she wins, she gives it to me, lol.
