The Big 4-0 Surprise

beach-chair-thumbs-up

Steve turns the big 4-0 this coming Saturday. I couldn’t let this monumental birthday pass without doing something. Let’s just say I went big for this one. I began planning a couple of months ago and it was intended to be a complete surprise until this week. Well, it didn’t turn out exactly as planned. Ever since putting this big surprise together, I meticulously went directly home everyday before the hubs and checked the mail. I didn’t want to take any chances that he would see anything pertaining to the big gift. Then there was the one day that I couldn’t go directly home. We had visitors in at work and went out to dinner. As I’m sitting at my work dinner, I get a text that says, “please tell me that you didn’t buy two plane tickets and an Airbnb reservation for my birthday”. Yep, the one day I didn’t go directly home, he checked the mail and the entire bill was there. What else could I say but, “SURPRISE! I’m taking you to Colorado!”

After getting over the shock, he was very excited. He has wanted to go back to Colorado ever since he was a teenager. So this Friday, this hot weather Florida beach couple is off to the chilly Rocky Mountains sans kids. Let the big celebration begin. Be sure to check back for pics!

P.S. I’ve never been to Colorado and am crazy excited!
