Default Men and their toys!! *rant*

I am convinced that boys never grow up: their toys just get more expensive. My husband is a master auto technician, so you guessed it, his weakness is vehicles. His Chevy truck has a beautiful custom paint job, sound system, V8 six-liter engine, etc. I've never complained because he's been able to do everything for an insanely cheap price, mainly by doing mechanic work in trade for the equipment.

Well, he called me at work today to tell me "How much do you love me?" He bought a set of 22-inch custom wheels/rims for his truck! Granted, he got them for only $500, which is a steal for the set, but it's still $500! And we have taxes on the house due in January! And just last night, we had a long talk and decided to cut back on extras and pay more towards the house payment!

Why do they have to do stuff like this? GRR!!!

I don't know what you're talking about...my camera equipment doesn't fall under the category of 'toys'....my camera/lenses are tools for creative expression!!!

He just called back. We're up to $800! Apparently he also picked up a new front bumper (no clue why he needs one!) and a hard tano cover. Ohhh there's going to be a few words tonight! How much do you wanna bet he's going to come in the door with flowers or something?

LMAO all boys are the same, if they weren't like that I wouldn't want them though. I love that the guy I'm seeing has a hobby that hes soo interested in. I know I'm the same way with the horses. I wouldn't want him to tell me to stop though.

The guy im seeing has suped up his Mustang so much its worth over 4 times what he paid for it now lol But.. I know he'd never sell it lol

I think its cute that he always wants to wash it and work on it lol But, hes also good about keep his bills in order as well.
