A few weeks ago Matt started watching a show called Justified. After the first episode he said, "I can tell I'm going to love this show. It has all of my favorite things - cowboys, cops, and crime-solving."
I figured he'd love the show and start looking for a job and real estate in the eastern Kentucky mountains, where the show is set. What I didn't count on what getting this notification from Amazon on Thursday morning.
First of all, can I just say THANK GOODNESS for Amazon Prime, because how would we ever survive waiting more than 24 hours for this sophisticated Stetson to land on our doorstep?
When Matt got home from work on Thursday night we talked about the purchase and I asked if it was really worth the money, since he works in a fancy office in Philadelphia and is not an actual cowboy, and also what in the world did he plan to wear it with? And he said, with a completely straight face, "I'm going to wear it with my cowboy clothes."
I worked from home on Friday, and the mail truck came by and deposited the Stetson around 2:00.
When Matt got home from work I was chatting on the phone with my friend Stacy, but he walked into the living room and tipped his hat to me and said, "Good evening, miss."
My family always jokes that I love nothing more than a reflective surface so I can look at myself. Which is admittedly true. I even glance at myself in the microwave every time I walk by it. Well once Matt donned that hat last night he kept walking by the mirrors in the living room and remarking on his good looks.
He's been working on a big project at work and had to finish a few things this morning, and I saw this when I walked by the office.
The hat may have been many, MANY times our annual hat budget (which happens to be zero dollars), but he does look handsome.
But I'm not going to be as easily sold on a move to Kentucky.
