World's Greatest Husband!

Although I know I'm biased, I truly believe my sweet hubby, Mark, deserves the world's greatest husband award right now. While it's probably no secret that he totally spoils me and let me get away with murder most of the time, today totally blew me away!! After we'd gotten home from the airport and put the kiddos to nap, he said he needed to run my car up the road to get the inspection done on my car because it was out. About an hour or so later, the front door bell rang, and I looked out and saw a car I didn't recognize. Then, I saw Mark standing by the door with this huge grin, and Sailer's papa standing by it with a video camera on me. Ummmm.... one word, confusion. And then, as I started to get it, SHOCKED! Mark surprised me with a brand new car!! Completely out of the blue. Beyond incredible! It's a Mercedes GL 450. With the addition of the new carseat in my old car, there was really no room in the backseat for anyone else to ride, so we had talked about getting a car with third row seating in another year or so. Anyway, see the pics below.... it's gorgeous and completely perfect.... I'm not really a car person, so this was so over the top for me. It has WAY more than I could ever want and has so many functions that will surely go unused until the daddy drives it, but it's beyond cool!! For example, the one thing that I absolutely HEART and think all moms should have is that the car "senses" when the key is within a few feet of the car. So I don't have to dig out my keys (which with the 2 kids is somewhat tricky) anymore b/c after it senses the keys, you just have to push a button on the door and it unlocks all of the doors automatically. And then, since it has a push start, I never even have to get the keys out of my purse. This is awesome since I like to lose mine often. (= Anyway, I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! And am still so beyond shocked that he bought me a new car and kept the surprise (he is the worst secret keeper EVER). And I LOVE LOVE LOVE my hubby for just being him and for spoiling me with such an incredible gift.


She's going to be such a little monster when it's her turn to get a new car... I have a feeling her daddy is going to do something equally as ridiculous and over the top for her as well.

Hi Tara,

First of all, congrats on having Lincoln! I am not sure if you will remember me but I met you at a scrapbooking event at the NRBC several months ago. Anyway I was checking to see if you had the lil man - he is so precious! Are you still scrapping? Also when we met I mentioned my sister's church - www.milestonechurch.com - they have moved into the old MET off of Keller Parkway. Also my sister is on facebook if you want to touch base with her - Sheri Willis Bruce (I think) or you can email me and I can hook you up with her. Anyway love the car and love that the hubs surprised you!! (Do you know a good friend of mine, Nikki Smith - she used to work at Timarron?) Have a great evening and week, Diana
