... just revealed to me that he bought me a KoAloha Pineapple Soprano.

(I'm trying not to add a million exclamation points)

He went to Atlantic City a few weeks ago and came back $1500 richer. He's been listening to me talk about this ukulele for weeks now, and after I sent him a link to HMS, he decided to surprise me with it.

The only sad part is that I still have to wait for the uke to ship.

But still!!!! :D :D I'm so excited!!!! :D :D

Sheesh! I've never heard of anyone winning more than a couple hundred bucks at a casino--good for him. And clearly he's a keeper to be willing to spend a decent chunck of it on a present for you. A glossy, woody, beautiful, serenade-y present. ;) Lucky!

Congratulations! That's a sweet story. And I'm sure the look on your face when your husband told you about it was worth way more to him that the $1,500 he won in Atlantic City. Please post photos of your ukulele after it gets there!
