I LOVE My MIL!

A tiny bit of back story- my MIL gave DH the money for a 50" TV on black Friday.

I told him he couldn't open it until Christmas, but MIL made a deal with me- she'd buy me a Kindle if I let him use the TV immediately. My Kindle is wrapped up underneath our tree, the TV is in the living room being used.

Every year for my birthday, she gets me an Orca whale wall calendar. That is wrapped up under the tree, too.

Okay, so my birthday is in 7 days. I will be 30.

The other day, she was talking to DH on the phone (we live in different states) and she asked him what I wanted for Christmas and my birthday. She was on speaker, so I told her that the Kindle was my Christmas present and the calendar was my birthday present.

Well, last night, DH was going through his emails and had one from her. She let him know that she had transferred $150 to our account for my birthday and Christmas!

I just love her! She is so amazing and kind and sweet!

I agree.

And it was too late last night when we found out to call and thank her, so I called first thing this morning to let her know how much it was appreciated.

Quoting mjimaging: That was nice of her.

And here I was expecting this title to be sarcastic.

Cool MILs. I didn't know they existed.
