When buying Christmas gifts.... don't tell your friends what you are getting them and then back out! My sister-in-law was asking me if I like Vera Bradley purses/totes. I told her that I'd never owned one, but that I had always wanted one. She went on to tell me that she was on the website, and there was this really good sale on baby diaper bags (I'm expecting in a few months). She asks me about my favorite color, etc. She finally completely spills the beans and says, "Do you think you'd want one for Christmas?" Of course I was super excited and said yes!! So I've been thinking about this darn diaper bag all week. :lol: I know, not a big surprise, but I didn't care. I was excited!!! Today my mother-in-law calls to tell me that she's been Christmas shopping. She says that while shopping, my sis-in-law was telling her to consider the Vera Bradley diaper bag as a gift for me. Told me that sis-in-law had already done Christmas shopping for me, or she'd get the bag for me. Sis-in-law went on to tell her that I seemed super excited about it, etc. Then mother-in-law starts describing all the beautiful bags, colors, patterns, compartments, how comfortable it was on her shoulder, etc. How she thought it was very practical because it was washable. How she loves all her Vera Bradley handbags and she thought I'd love one too. AND THEN! Tells me, "I'm not going to get you one of those, though. I just didn't think that seemed like anything you'd want." So I know mother-in-law was trying to be thoughtful (I think???), but I'm so disappointed!!! I even tried to find the diaper bag on the internet, but I don't see any that fit my sis-in-law's description and price. I want to call her up and be like "Tell me how to find that bag since no one's getting it for me!!!" but I feel really weird doing that. So, the moral of this story is: Keep all Christmas gifts a secret, especially if you're going to talk it up and then back out!
