I had once written a post about my flamingo obsession and my desire for a flamingo themed wedding, but quickly took it down when I realized that it a) made me sound like a crazy lady and b) Mr. Rucksack would never let me have a flamingo wedding. I did leave them in my original inspiration board though, with the hopes that maybe they would go unnoticed and Mr. Rucksack would just think they were cute pink bird blobs.

My original plan was to keep the flamingos a secret from Mr. Rucksack. Since I purchased them from Home Depot I thought it would be funny to have Mr. Rucksack excitedly open a giant Home Depot Box while wondering what sorts of tooly goodness could possibly be inside, only to find plastic pink flamingos. That plan lasted a couple of hours and then happy hour drinks led to a confession. He just shook his head and laughed.
Well, a few days later I got a phone call from Home Depot that went a little something like this:
"Hi, I'm calling from Home Depot to let you know your order is in... a box of 27 inch plastic flamingos? Wait, that can't be right. Is that right?"
Cue the dancing in my office!
We hurried down to Home Depot right after work and picked up our cool new flock of birds. Mr. Rucksack was just as excited as I was:

Did you make any purchases that others may think are silly, but make you really really happy?
