The Joke Is On Me....Again

January 15, 2009

For those of you that have been with me since I started this blog, you might recall my CHRISTMAS IN JULY post, when I first divulged just how humorous my husband can be.

Last year on Christmas morning he presented me with this very large, heavy box. As I opened the box with excitement, I was trying to figure out what was inside.....

Well I was certainly surprised....when this is what was inside the big box....

xms
Yes, you are seeing correctly. Pat went to h@me depot and bought me a tool belt and filled it with cleaning supplies!! It was not what I expected to find in the box.....and the roars of laughter coming from my family could be heard for miles......It was the classic prank!!

It is a well known fact and a running joke with family and friends, that I take a close second to my Mom with her cleaning and OCD tendencies and Pat thought that this was the perfect opportunity to poke a little fun!!

So this Christmas came and went and I thought he might have another joke or gag gift up his sleeve, but nothing ever surfaced.

On New Year's Day, while visiting with Pat's family, my sister in law hands me a gift. I look at her very strangely because we were not supposed to be exchanging gifts.....the families are just way to big and we all really cut back this year. She looked at me with this funny face and said just open it.....

I unwrap it and find these pj bottoms.....

She thought they would look great with my toolbelt from last year!!

The joke was on me!!

Just when I thought I escaped Pat's gag gift this year, he passed the torch to his sister. Although, she was not with us on Christmas morning to see me open my toolbelt, she read the post last July and thought these pj's would be the perfect addition!! Pat thought that I should actually wear them for the picture....I said I could take a joke, but I was not going to go that far....

I am sure you are all visualizing me wearing these pj's with that toolbelt....now that would be a picture.....

And just so this post is not all about me being the butt of family jokes....I thought I would add a litte cuteness for good measure....

I have been trying to take at least a couple pictures everyday......getting ready for the photography workshop weekend....exciting stuff!! I am a little nervous....but excited and anxious at the same time!!

Hope you all have a great weekend....Be back Monday!!

Sherri said...

Isn't it fun being married to a comedian?! It puts a little spice in the marriage LOL. I think you should play a little joke on Pat and come out in those pj bottoms in place of your usual lingerie...in fact, you should pack them up and take them to the Bahamas with you! Sexyyyy.....

Casey said...

Oh THAT is hysterical!!! I love the toolbox story and the pjs are perfect. Now you can clean in your pjs too!! :)

And MJ always looks better with some accessories.

Amy said...

Your hubby sounds like good (and funny) people to me.;)

I love the PJs!

And when Sarah outgrows that darling outfit that she is wearing in the picture....call me. I'm hoping to shrink so that I can fit into it. ;)

She has the cutest clothes!
I hope that you have a great weekend too!

God Bless,
Amy:)

Marla said...

Haha, too funny! I really think we need a pic of the pants and belt together. Your family sounds like a lot of fun.

Sarah is adorable, as always!

Felicia said...

That tool belt could come in handy as you're moving from room to room - lol!

They always say if you're the butt of jokes and picked on you must be well liked. So, at least you know your family loves you :)

Happy Shooting (well, you know what I mean:)

Jill said...

Lisa,
Now you know you have to take a pic and show us all!

Love the jewelry pic! Is she wearing Matilda Jane?

Your hubby is too cute (and your SIL too!). I actually would probably love a tool belt for cleaning supplies.

Sarah is gorgeous, as always!

Pug Mama said...

sweet boxers!

Jboo said...

So cute! But I really think you should have been wearing those pjs and the tool belt for the photo!!

Love your pictures of Sarah. Sounds like it's time to start sharing the jewelry -- she does have good taste, doesn't she! :)

Have a great weekend!
Janet

3 Peanuts said...

Oh that is so funny:) Do you actually use the tool belt or is it awkward? I am a cleaning freak too.

Those PJ bottoms are hysterical!

Kim

jenbusymom said...

That's hilarious! I was actually telling Andy about the toolbelt thing because I think, wait a minute, I know I have OCD tendencies when it comes to cleaning and how it must be done, etc.

Great pics, love that necklace! Have fun!

3D said...

Too funny! The pants are a hoot!

Keep smilin!

Kayce said...

Love the cuteness and the toolbelt! The pjs are tooooo funny! Love a good family prank.

Debz said...

That is pretty funny.
I hope my husband never sees this or we'll have matching toolblets and pj's!

Sweet piccy's of sweet pea.

Can't wait to hear how your photo workshop goes!

Keisha said...

May I borrow the toolbelt & the pants?... I think I could put them both to good use right now! ...Well, when I get to feeling better that is! lol!

Special K said...

Now that's funny. I really think we should have gotten a pic of you in your cleaning gear though! LOL!

a Tonggu Momma said...

I would totally wear pajamas like that on a second honeymoon... or Valentine's Day... or perhaps the husband's birthday. I'd want to let him know that yes, I do think bald is sexy.

Bridget said...

Your pants and tool belt are too cute - I could use them both! Miss Sarah cute as always!! Hope you have a great weekend!

Sharie said...

Love Sarah's little skirt - so cute...
I think you should have put them on and started singing "I'm too sexy" or "Don't you wish your girlfriend was hot like me." I'd like to see THAT video on your blog:)

kerri said...

Your husband and mine would get along just fine, Superman is always pulling pranks on me, I am such an easy target what can I say!
Have fun at your workshop, I wish!! I could come too!

kris said...

We all have The Clean Gene in this family (INCLUDING my brother!!)... but my oldest sister is the worst, she vacuums twice a day. I am SO going to have to find those PJ bottoms for her!!

Terri said...

Love the pants & I really need the tool belt. The older I get I am becoming OCD with my cleaning.

By the way have a wonderful weekend & I am looking forward to seeing new photos!!!

Norah said...

So what DO you clean in? I'm a little cleaning obsessed myself and sometimes HAVE to clean no matter what time of day and no matter what I am wearing. Boots, heels, skirts...I'm still there cleaning..lol. My mom made fun of me the other day saying I always clean the floors on rainy or snowy days..and for what?

Heather said...

Come on.....we'd love to see a picture of you with those pants on. Sounds like your sister-in-law would too!

Keep posting the wonderful photos. By the way, your little one has style. That necklace matched perfect with her outfit! You might just have a little Diva on your hands!

Lucy said...

What a hoot! Where ever did she find those pants, one of a kind for sure!!! And I could seriously use that tool belt, I'm a terrible cleaner!
Love the necklace Sarah picked out, goes perfectly with her adorable outfit. Made me realize how much Magnolia would love my jewelry box too!!!
Have a GREAT weekend!

Lisa and Tate said...

oh i like you husband! what a great sense of humor... and practical!!! i actually have thought of getting something to haul everything around with me when cleaning.... never thought of a tool belt....

Love the pj bottoms.

thanks for the cuteness in pictures!

Our Complete Family said...

Those gifts are a RIOT!
How funny they are!
Jason teases me about the cleaning, too. He always asks me which sink it's o.k. to wash his hands in b/c if I've just cleaned a certain one it drive me batty to get water spots in it. Crazy, hu?!? ;) Maybe a bit OCD here, too!!!
Miss Sarah looks so stinkin cute with your necklace on. I love, love, love her skirt.
Is it this weekend that you have the photo workshop?
Happy TGIF day to you sweetie~ Les

Paula said...

That is so funny about the tool belt. But you know, not a bad idea, at least you would have everything handy. I love the pics of Sara, you are a really good photographer.

Carol VR said...

Those pants rock!!!

Perhaps you could find some fabric and make a complete wardrobe line...LOl

Buzzings of a Queen Bee! said...

That is hilarious!! Pat is a crack up. One year Brent bought me some ski pants (and I just CAN"T ski). He has never lived it down. Your tool belt beats that for sure! :)
Carrie

Jo said...

I think that cleaning belt may not be such a bad thing ~ you can move from room to room hands free!

What type of accessory pieces does one wear with those pants? :)

Have a great weekend,
Jo

Jennifer said...

She looks so big with that outfit on and her necklace. She did a great job picking one out :)

EllieNat said...

OHMYOSH! Sounds like you have a very FUN family!!

Love the B&W of Sarah...

Steffie B. said...

ok....you know that we soooooo need a picture of you in the pj bottoms....those are hysterical....and the tool belt....what a hoot....

Ivy said...

Hi Lisa,
You are too funny with this post.

I have to say your photos are beautiful and I wouldn't worry too much about the workshop. Hey, just have fun, you'll be a pro when you come back.

I'm the nervous one. I don't even know half the stuff on my camera.

Love the necklace Sara picked out. Good taste like her Mommy!

Toolbelt Hmmm, I should get one for my husband, seriously, how many shirts, belts does a guy need anyway:))

Good luck at the workshop. Looking forward to seeing the results. Oh how i'd love to come with there.

Hugs,

Ivy

The Golf Widow said...

Thaks too funny! Sarah looks adorable in that cute skirt.

Jennifer said...

Sarah looks beautiful in the pictures. The necklace is perfect with her outfit!
