My Steven and My Nigel

He knows me. He knows me well. And although most of the time I hate to admit it, sometimes he knows me better than I know myself. I guess that's a good quality to have in a husband right? Someone who knows what's best for you before you realize it? Whatever the case, Steven is good to me. Two years ago, I said I wanted a new point and shoot and instead, he bought me my first Canon digital SLR. Perhaps he saw the glimmer in my eyes when I talked photography before I knew it was there? I asked for a puppy, because I finally lived on my own and you know that's what you do when you live on your own, and instead he bought me a kitten. Perhaps he listened when I said I had never had a pet in my life, and he knew kittens need less attention and practically train themselves.

If you follow me on twitter, you may have seen this tweet a few weeks ago when again, I asked for a puppy. I figured since we were finally married and we're not ready to have babies, a dog naturally was the next step. Plus, I had a name picked out and once I get something in my head, I will figure out a way to get it. Well, this past weekend my husband did it again. He took into account all of my "ism's", what I was asking for and really, what was best for me. I am thrilled to introduce you all to Nigel!!! A 17-inch MacBook Pro.

Similar to the puppy I was asking for, Nigel weighs 6.6 pounds. Similar to the puppy I was asking for, Nigel will now get lots and lots of my attention. Similar to the puppy I was asking for, Nigel is now named Nigel. Unlike the puppy I was asking for however, I don't need to walk this Nigel or clean up after him or hear him bark. So yes, this time, Steven knew me better. And although I hear him loud and clear that I'm not suited to be a puppy owner (yet), I couldn't be happier.

And just because I fooled some readers into thinking they were going to see a puppy, I'll include this photo I took of my good friend Bea and her dog, Troy. Troy recently got a new home and I wanted to make sure Bea had a good photo of them together. =)

Happy Monday!

Chris has talked me into buying a Nigel for him and, at the same time, talked me out of getting a puppy. I would like a Nigel for me and a puppy for me please.

Congrats on your new addition!

You have a wise, wise husband! You are one lucky girl (and kitties and laptops are better than puppies anyways) :)

I need a Nigel! I also need to convince Cent that he needs a Nigel. He can be so 2000-late with his sticking to a PC allegiance. haha. :)Congrats!
