So DH loves Corvettes. LOVES them.

For his birthday present, I surprised him with the Texas Driving Experience. What is that, you ask? Well, essentially he got to drive around the track at Texas Motor Speedway in a Corvette.

Now, DH's birthday isn't until the end of December, but I gave the gift to him a little early because I didn't want to be sitting out in the cold watching him drive around the track. And you know what? I still sat out in the cold, because that particular day was in the 50's and EXTREMELY windy, which was nuts seeing that the day before and after was in the 70's. Go figure.

It was totally worth it, though, to see how happy he was.

You can see the best pictures here, the few there were! I kept missing him as he drove around the track.....

Needless to say, I got wife of the year for 2008. :)

Me to the Me
I have a post about my (literally and figuratively) cool weekend, but want to get the pictures ready before I post about it. In the meantime, enjoy this meme I snagged from Poppelicious, whom I will be seeing in a month! Woo!

1. Do you like blue cheese salad dressing?
Mmmm - yes!

2. Favorite late night snack?
I usually don't eat late at night, but if I have to eat something or fall asleep with my stomach gnawing, it's usually half a peanut butter sandwich.

3. Do you own a gun?
We own two. His and Hers!

4. What’s your favorite drink at Starbucks or other specialty coffee shop?
I like their Peppermint Hot Chocolate and their plain old coffee.

5. Do you get nervous before doctor appointments?
Not really.

6. What do you think of hot dogs?
Um, is this a double entendre?

7. Favorite Christmas song?
What Child is This?

8. What do you prefer to drink in the morning?

9. Can you do push-ups?
I'm working on it. I'm also perfecting the plank thingy in Pilates. That crap is way harder than it looks.

I'm quite fond of my engagement and wedding rings.

11. Favorite hobby?
Watching TV, reading, and cooking.

12. Do you have A.D.D.?
Sometimes. I thought that was called "Multitasking?"

13. What’s one trait that you hate about yourself?
I let people walk all over me for a little while and then get mad at them about it instead of not letting them walk all over me in the first place. (I'm with Poppy on this one.)

14. The last disease you contracted?
I think I got a cold last week...

15. Name 3 thoughts at this exact moment.
Hungry - gotta eat lunch.

That's it...

Water, tea, Diet 7Up.

17. Current worry right now?
I worry about everything. I seriously need Xanax.

If I start up on that, I'll never stop. Just ask DH. I revisit this particular hate at least once a day.

19. Favorite place to be?
My house.

20. How did you ring in the New Year?
I think DH and I got really drunk and passed out while watching movies. We felt like crap the next day.

Yes! I'm doing a lot of it in the coming year, too.

23. Do you own slippers?
I don't do winter without them.

24. What color shirt are you wearing?
It's kind of multi-colored.

25. Do you like sleeping on satin sheets?
Not really - too slippery.(Agreed.)

This question irritates me. Who's your favorite child? (Agreed!)

Oh hell no. I like my electricity and plumbing, thank you very much.

Probably something that DH said yesterday.

YES, although I wish I lived about 300 miles south....if I could move my house to Houston, I'd be set.

37. How many TVs do you have in your house?

I'm usually 5 - 10 mph over

Lots of people do. I'm pretty fucking awesome.
(That's Poppy's answer, but I'm not going to pretend it's not true for me too.)
