The Mall Cart

My husband hates shopping. 

He hates shopping.

And I know that that makes him the same as every single male on the face of the planet save for one fact. I think most males hate following around their lady as she tries on numerous outfits in a store yet they do actually like shopping for themselves. Jay is a big hater of both. It's just not his forte. So when we had to go to the crowded mall to wrap up Christmas shopping on December 22nd, you can pretty much guess his excitement level for that one.

But even with a desperately bored husband who found every single "boyfriend bench" in lightening speed, I still had a great time. In fact, I was laughing almost the entire duration of our stay. And that's due to the fact that after we purchased my dad's gift, I decided to let Jay be in charge of getting it through the mall as we finished the rest of our shopping.
And I tell you friends, I was almost unable to breathe due to laughter every time I looked over amongst the Christmas cheer at his extremely bored face as he navigated the crowds with his cumbersome, loathsome, awkward burden. Pretty sure he would have rather been anywhere else on the planet in that moment.

It's the little things in life, right? Gosh, I love you Jay. You crack me up.

If you can actually believe it, my husband went to the mall this year more than I did for Christmas shopping! It's such a pain to get up there and find parking and all of that stuff, so I ended up ordering pretty much everything online. That's pretty hilarious that he was the one in charge of navigating your dad's present through the mall, and it looks like it gave y'all some much needed comic relief!

Haha, I love how you made him navigate your dad's present through the mall! I love how he calls places to sit at the mall the "boyfriend bench." So funny!

Lol!!!! I would probably do the same thing. I think I have the only man in the world who loves to shop. In fact, I try not to take him so he doesn't buy the whole store. Hehe

That nice-looking hand-truck Jay was pulling around the shopping mall was a great Christmas present for your dad. It's good you didn't put it to immediate use for carting a large kitchen appliance. I remember feeling how jay looked sitting down in the mall one time when I was waiting for someone who had better shopping legs than I to finish perusing the entire contents of large department store. Congrats on the two of you getting out and getting Christmas shopping done in-store!

bahahaha this is hilarious. KC is the exact same, he hates all forms of shopping. mainly when he comes with me, but he also hates shopping for himself. i'll have to get something like that next time so i can laugh at him - if i can get him to come with me of course.
