This Is Gonna Be Good

I just got home from running some errands. I had no idea they were going to take that long though, considering I knew exactly what I needed to buy. But the time was definitely well worth it. You see, my boyfriend's birthday party is tomorrow afternoon after Catechism. And, of course, he will expect a present from me. Which makes sense, seeing as how we've been dating for almost six months now, and he got me a present for my birthday (a pretty snowflake-shaped necklace that I wear every day ) and we exchanged gifts for Valentine's Day. So I wanted to make sure his birthday present will be something he'll really like.
I love my boyfriend so much, but he's been driving himself crazy trying to figure out what he's getting tomorrow. (In all honesty, I just thought of an idea for part of the gift as I was driving to the store to get him what I was originally going to buy. ) Pretty much every day this month, he's been asking me to give him hints, but every time I say no or I just give him really vague hints like "It's not jewelry" or "There's more than one part to it." But hopefully he'll stop drilling me with questions now because he only has tonight, tomorrow morning, and part of tomorrow afternoon to wait. I think he can handle it.
Although I know he's going to love his gift. He likes Train (I like some of their songs too), so I got him their album Save Me, San Francisco. The other part of the gift is a little more sentimental: a foldable picture frame. One side will have a picture of me as a toddler (my all-time favorite one where I'm wearing a white dress and a barrette in my hair and I'm smiling and I look sooooooo adorable!!), and the other side will be empty so my boyfriend can put in whatever other picture he wants.
...Yes, there is a point to the other present, I promise. One day he asked to see one of my baby pictures. However, I'm not a big fan of looking at pictures of myself; I always find something wrong with them. So at first I didn't want to let him see any of my baby pictures, but he still kept asking if he could see any of my pictures. Eventually I asked him why he was so hung up on seeing my baby pictures, so he said something like, "Everyone is cute as a baby, so if you're so beautiful now, imagine how you looked back then." I thought about that today as I went to the store to get the Train CD, so I decided that the picture frame would be a perfect finishing touch.
Even the card was well-thought out; I never scrimp on details. At the top it says, "YOU ARE:" and all over the front it says, "fun," "smart," "wonderful," "passionate," "understanding," "inspiring," "genuine," "talented," "confident," "generous," "admirable," "likable," "nice," "personable," "kind," "successful," "considerate," "enthusiastic," "friendly," "dependable," and "capable." Then on the inside it says, "Thought you deserved a 21-compliment salute! Here's to you!" Those are pretty much all of the things that my boyfriend thinks when he thinks of me, so the card will be my way of saying that I think those things about him too.
I'm really looking forward to my boyfriend's party tomorrow. He'll be so happy to see what I got him because they're things he wanted and because they came from my heart. He makes me very happy so I want my gifts to reflect that, and I think I'm doing that rather well.
