Re: the man room... We don't have one since out apt is so small, but his buddy has a man-garage (called the G-raj) and a man room in the house. When we have a house, he will def have a man room and preferably a garage. Everyone needs their space and why the hell not! If they want to smoke cigarettes or whatever, let it be contained in their area. I think a man room is the greatest invention to keep a happy home! I so wish I had a house, so Matt could have his room!

hehehe go on, girl! ;-)
OK - SOOOO here's what I'm getting Martin:
his big present is a Garmin Nuvi 650 4.3in Wide Screen GPS
I *think* this is the one.... pretty damn good deal even if they ARE selling this cheap at a lot of retailers (I checked! haha!)! I saved like $500-600 off retail pricing (normally $749, I got it for about $190 shipped and all from Amazon!!), and it's one of the highest models (if not the highest)... (I think I soooo lucked out on this tho - LOL!)
Stuhrling Original 'Shark' Men's Easy-read Swiss Watch from Overstock.com
It was kinda hard to judge his rxn given that we were in the company of friends but I think he really likes it! Also got a terrific deal on that - Retail$250, I paid around $90-ish with shipping from Overstock.com
It's tough around here with his bday so close to Xmas! (Not to even mention the economy... aye yi yiiiiiiiiiiiii ) BUT Xmas is my FAV holiday and I LOOOOOVE giving gifts to people (seriously maybe more than I like receiving them - I know, I'm kinda odd like that - hahahaha). Plus, I'm totally one of those people who feels like everybody should get their own special BDAY celebration! Soooo I try and make sure that I give at least one "Big" present at BOTH his Bday and then Xmas....
OOOOOOH!!!!! I also talked to my Dad about letting Martin pick out a tiny miniature painting of his. For those of you who do not know, my Dad is a very successful artist based out of Dallas, TX who is soon to be exhibited internationally (can you tell I'm a proud daughter?! lol) www.samuellynned.comMy Dad and I are going to go out to dinner to discuss this with Martin this evening - should be fun! Martin's been DYING for his very own personal "table top miniature" (as we like to call them; about a 4x6 small painting with a killer rich frame on it) Hell - my EX still has a 24x24 painting of my dad's hanging prominently in his "new house" (with the "new gf") so why the hell shouldn't Martin get his own?!!? SOOOOOOOO VERY EXCITED ABOUT THAT!!! He's gonna flip!! Cutie pie!!!!
Uhhhmmmm what else - oh yeah, on the bday front...I also filled a bag with car magazines (Man room? LOL) and Mike & Ikes (his fav!) & Buffalo Flavored SPicey Doritos. And I gave him a Red Bull with his other present today. He rarely gets these things so he totally appreciates them! Unfortunately the Red Bull kept him (and me!) up most of the night but oh well.... you only have 1 bday a year! hahah Oh man he's gonna enjoy relaxin' to all the rest of later today! lololol He deserves it though - he's an awesome guy
Ok how do I always end up writing freaking novels??!
Ciao for now!

HA! FI has a "Man Room" - I call it the "Testosterone Zone." I do everything I can to NEVER go in there- it's all his hunting and fishing stuff! ewww! It looks like the garage is going to become another Man Room too! He's getting a pool table from his parents for Christmas, so I think between the Testosterone Zone and the garage, I may never see FI again!

As far as Xmas, we're not going to splurge this year, but we'll do little gifts and stockings. I'm still stumped.
Happily married since 2008
