Well, he did it...a day in pictures

The Mr kept a secret from me for 4 whole days!  It was killing him inside, he was about to burst but he did it.  We worked out early in the morning and he even asked if I wanted hints as we were en route and I told him no which I'm sure only added to his potential to spontaneously burst into flames.  Those flames would've been quickly doused by the weather...

Another instance of Mr plans...God laughs

He was pretty bummed about the weather but I didn't care.  I was just glad he planned a day to surprise me.  He doesn't do it often because he acts like he has no idea how to do such things.

You be the judge.

I love animals...

Check!

I love Christmas...

Check!

We packed a healthy lunch of turkey wraps, carrots and fruits but...


...he knows I love chocolate...

Check!

...and antiques.

Check!

Sometimes, so does he.


All in all, it was a wonderful day with my...


Has your sweetie ever planned a fun day for you?  What did you do?

  4. Oh my gosh - I almost thought I imagined my Odyssey from when I was a kid. No-one else has even heard of them, but there's the proof right there in pictures.

    My hubby's not much with the planning, but he has other qualities that make up for it. To be fair, it's tough for him to make plans without me since I'm the "keeper of the calendar" so he has to ask if we have plans on any given day.

  7. Looks like wonderful fun and all the more special since the Mr. planned it all for you. I have often fantasized about owning a Christmas store. Wouldn't that be FUN???

    1. Definitely! Owning a Christmas store would be DREAM for me! There were lots of people there too so I know that there are other people who would love to shop year round.

  8. That looks like a great day! How sweet of him. My husband isn't very good at surprises because he also says he isn't sure how to. He's so silly. I just like spending time with him. It wasn't a surprise, but he did get his parents to take our kids so we could have some time alone this weekend, and it was just what I needed to re-charge my batteries. He asked me to a restaurant I've been wanting to go to, so I was happy about that. Love the nutcrackers! I am kind of obsessed with them. We went to see The Nutcracker a couple years ago and I loved it. I'd love to take my daughter now that she's getting bigger.

    1. I think planning something and getting appreciation might reinforce...planning surprise = good! :) Sounds like you had a great weekend too! I love Nutcrackers and we always went to see it every year on our dating anniversary for a long time since it's close to Christmas.

    1. It was pretty rainy most of the day but it rained on our wedding day and that turned out pretty awesome so I don't bat an eye at the weather unless there's a tornado looming. :)

  11. Such a sweet thing to do! I have often said that my husband will NEVER throw me a surprise party, because he is pretty much incapable of keeping a secret. He has ratted on himself so many times, it's not even funny. I deliberately do my best to not guess what he's getting me for gifts, otherwise it spoils his attempt at surprising me. Love that kind of a day--petting critters, Christmas shop, antiques, chocolate, and him surprising you; does it get any better?!

    1. Isn't that funny how guys do that. They always accuse women of not being able to keep secrets but they're just as bad if not worse! ;) And nope, it doesn't get much better than that!

  12. Looks like a lovely, lovely day!!! Since you love Christmas so much, have you ever been to Frankenmuth, Michigan? I had a friend you'd make an annual trip of it with family and friends every year. I've never been, but it's supposed to be pretty amazing.

    1. Yeah we've been there twice and I will tell you do NOT make a special trip there! Bronner's is the only thing that is Christmas there and it's good for about 90 minutes (being generous) of shopping. Frankenmuth as a whole is a day trip thing. You know it's bad when you check into your hotel and the woman at the desk says "if you leave early just make sure you let us know." We left 2 days early. :-\

    2. Yikes!!! That does not sound like a good time at all. I'll definitely cross that off my list. When we went to Pigeon Forge, TN a few years ago (2nd worst vacation ever) there was a wonderful Christmas store that was huge and we thoroughly enjoyed that. I was able to get the hubs a Dept 56 hockey ice skating rink for $40! That was the highlight of the week.

  13. My husband has planned surprise events that left me speechless twice in our 30-year marriage. To be fair, I'm not much for surprises, I like to know. The first time he surprised me with an event was for my 50th birthday. He came to pick me up at work, had my bag packed, and had already cleared the time off with my boss. He whisked me away to Las Vegas where he had tickets to The Righteous Brothers for my birthday! We kind of made a tradition of going away on our birthdays, but when my 60th rolled around, I told him I wanted to stay home and have a party so we could celebrate with our four grown kids. So the party itself wasn't a surprise. My daughter took me on what was clearly a decoy shopping trip, during which I assumed the others were decorating. I was blown away when I saw our favorite local live-music performer set up in our living room! He played keyboard and guitar, and had a rolodex of repertoire that we could choose from. At some point he realized we could all sing, and we had live karaoke with him from that point on. Come to think of it, maybe I do like surprises!

  14. That party sounds like an awesome time with the live performer and karaoke (as long as everyone can sing).
