It was my birthday a few weeks ago. I had been stalking J's for Basicgrey's Fact and Fiction lines, and during the shopping trip a few weeks before my birthday, I discovered they'd gotten it in! I added two of the smaller embellishment packs to my basket (saying 'self-control, self-control' over and over again in my head) and my boyfriend offered to carry the basket as I shopped the scrap section because he wanted to check out the clearance Christmas stuff. We checked out awhile later, and I didn't anything of it.

Fast forward to my birthday - I opened up a big box from my boyfriend filled with almost EVERY single piece from the Fact and Fiction lines - 12x12 paper pads, 6x6 paper pads, alphas, nearly all the embellishments. He had put a lot of thought into the few things he left out, explaining that he didn't think I'd use the 'pom-pom things' because it would make my albums too bulky, etc. And here's the clincher - he had taken the basket away from me at J's and snapped a picture with his phone so he knew what I already had when he went back to buy the rest. He's always very thoughtful with gifts, but this one takes the cake.

All this after he'd taken me to the A's an hour away the day before, and to a very nice dinner.

What a guy. I think I'll keep him around

Thanks for the birthday wishes! He and I have been together almost five years now, and he has been thoughtful and sweet in so many ways. And I love that he takes an interest in my hobby. I'm a lucky lady!

On a related note, it looks like J's might have Fact and Fiction 50% off through today if you haven't gotten it yet!
