Birthday perfection

Don't you just love when you find the perfect gift for someone? I do. Especially when it's a super awesome Craigslist find that saves you a whole lot of money! The hubby's birthday is coming up and he has been wanting to set up a home gym ever since we moved in together years ago. Living in apartments made that wish of his a little difficult but boy did he try anyway. We had a weight bench shoved in our tiny storage unit, free weights in the pantry, and an ab lounge in the living room that sometimes doubled as extra seating for guests! Well now that we have a house with a two-car garage there is plenty of space for his dream, and being the awesome wife I am I wanted to add to his collection. A quick search on Craigslist turned up the monster you see below. This particular piece of equipment retails for around $800, but someone who was making a short-notice move across the country was willing to part with it for $300. Score! This system does almost any workout possible. Bench press, leg extensions, curls, lat pull-downs, name it. I'm so excited to see the look on his face when he comes home after work the day of his birthday and this is all set up. I'm also excited because just as I love finding the perfect gifts, I also love finding gifts that I can put to use too!
