My hubby pulled off a miracle. I had called weeks ago across the entire country almost to see if anyone had an ink city. Well, as most of you know, every place was sold out. They stopped short of laughing at me. I had called the stores that are selling B-bags around here and they also told me no. So I ordered the first and the box in ink to see if they would be an ok substitute and I wasn't really thrilled with either. I probably would have kept the first but DH said no. Then that ink city at NM in Michigan came up and he wouldn't even let me call about it. Didn't matter. It was long gone by the time I read that post. So, about two weeks ago, DH told me he was trying to find me a present for Christmas but he had a problem. He had found an ink city but he wasn't sure if I wanted him to get it because we would not be able to get any pictures ahead of time and it would be a final sale. He had called the local B-bag retailer and at first they told him no way. He pressured them to have their buyer call and find out if anybody had one and they found one!It was in a box in some warehouse somewhere...never opened and NOONE would open it to take pictures so we had to decide whether to buy it sight unseen. Of course I said yes but I was a little unsure. So it finally came today and it is beautiful. The light outside is awful today so I had to use the flash. Here it is! Is my husband the sweetest guy or what?

Don't worry, I already gave birth to him. He's running around my house, but I love the little devil.:love:
