Unplanned Valentines present.

Unplanned Valentines present.

Postby NorthCountry » February 12th 2017, 11:38am

Sometimes you just luck out. Thank you to my wife Selena.

After my wife and I have breakfast on Sunday morning it has become a ritual to hit the local TJMAXX for some deals possibly, but I prefer the people watching. Living in a border town is fun for that, we get a lot of folks from Quebec. Now, my wife loves Fossil watches. I have never really saw much for me in the brand except the Breaker dive watch, which of course they never have. I glanced through the selection available and thought I had found one that I liked. My wife finds me in the store in the mens section and tells me she thinks she found me one. The same one I was eyeballing. So she said happy Valentines day! Started the day with my Bulova but now the Fossil 54 sport chronograph.

And here is her Fossil she picked up also.

It's spreading! Nice going; cohabitation does have its advantages sometimes. :wink:

Sharp looking dials, at I presume an exceptional price. Sweet gifts.

Congratulations to you and the missus. Both are fine looking watches. Way to go North Country.

Thanks guys, yes I agree Terms. A willing partner in all aspects. ;-)

50 percent off list, so yeah pretty decent price wise. They sell enough that you rarely see them moved to the clearance section. Sadly the higher end stuff must go to different stores. Many thanks again for your kind words.

His and her Valentines presents - how mooshy, and cool.

Nice. Tales like this persist and I may have to look into this cohabitation thing.

Love that watch, and the fact your SO picked the same one you were ogling is just marvelous.
Congrats on both of your picks, the one on your wrist and the one by your side.
