Christmas Presents

I LOVE Christmas and I love buying presents. I've been asking Brad for month what he wants for Christmas and the only things ideas he's given me are things I'd be a direct benefactor of.

His list:
A new i-pod (so I can have his old one)
Ticket to ride (an awesome board game which is also at the top of MY list)
Needless to say I was a little frustrated.

So I had to take matters into my own hands, with a little help I picked up Brad from the airprt this Friday and suprised him with tickets to the Body Worlds exhibit.


For any of you who have never heard of this exhibit see here: http://theleonardo.org/bodyworlds/the-exhibit/photo-gallery.php

Basically they plasticize cadaviers and then along with cases of organs and body parts they have
full cadaviers each showing some different function of the body in amazingly artistic poses.
My favorite was a man balancing on three balls balancing all of his organs with his free hand. (sounds gross it was A-Ma-Zing)
We grabbed lunch at the Library which was next door to the exhibit and had a great time. Sorry for the lack of pictures, we weren't allowed to take any inside the exhibit but I'll just let you know Brad loved it! This is the guy who down loaded surgeries of of i-tunes and thought they were awesome and always wanted to watch Justin's anatomy DVDs.

I was suprised how much I enjoyed it but I have to say even though it was very impressive it was pretty darn sick! Taking your beloved to see a bunch of dead bodies... apparently that's true love :)
We ended the night by heading to Emily and Matt's to play some games.. (I challenged Emily to Nertz, I got my butt kicked!) but on the way we got lost and somehow ended up at Mountain City Grill. We jumped at the opportunity and grabbed some chinese food and enjoyed some games and great food with the Rogers.

Wow, you are one "dead"icated wife. Sorry, that was a total Pam joke. I'm embarrassed I even said that. Anyway, you are so great to take him to that. And your hair looks really cute in that picture.
