A Surprise

It's my birthday this month and I am so excited! I love birthdays (except for getting older)! Something that is super exciting about this year is that Jon has a big surprised planned and I have NO idea what he's planning. He's never surprised me with anything before so I am really looking forward to what he has in store. Actually I take that back, the day he proposed to me was a HUGE surprise, I had no idea it was going to happen on that day and he completely took me by surprise.

But about these birthday plans..... I am the type of person who doesn't fancy surprises. I like to know what's going to happen. For instance, my 18th birthday my mom put on this big surprise birthday party for me and I had a funny suspicion that there was something going on under my nose. My brother, whom I can read like a book, was being really quiet all day. Finally I asked him if something was going on that I needed to know about. His answer was "Nope." and then he begins whistling. HA HA GOTCHA! I knew it, I then ask if my mother is throwing me a surprise party and bro says, "STEPH ugh please don't tell mom I told you!"

Score, Steph: 1 Mom and bro: 0

Needless to say I should have won an Oscar that night because everyone believed that I was completely surprised! I thank you......

Or the time I REALLY wanted a Maltese and I was trying to figure out if my mom was going to get me one for Christmas! Bro and I were talking about what we wanted for Christmas on the night of Eve and I had a suspicion my mom got me my favorite dog. But I had to be sure, so I told Sean that I didn't want a dog at all, and he freaked out, because my mother already got me the dog. He said she was going to be so upset that she got me this dog and I didn't even want it!
GOTCHA again! I so wanted the dog, I just wanted to make sure that she got me one because I couldn't stand waiting to be surprised.

Score, Steph: 2 Mom and bro: 0

And while I am at it.... I might as well confess that for every Christmas bro and I used to sneak to the Christmas tree and unwrap our presents just enough so we could see what we got, then carefully re-wrap them so my mom would never know! I guess all of that acting paid off because my bro is a fabulous actor and is really going to be famous one day.

I know I'm horrible!

Back to my husbands surprise...... I've got NOTHIN. I have not one single idea of what he might be doing because come on, a girl asks for 7,892,036 things during the year how can I possibly remember everything I've asked for.

I asked him if we were going to need to pack anything like for instance water and almonds (maybe we're going on a kick a** hike somewhere.)

His answer was "and maybe some underwear."

Okay so I've got to pack:


What the heck!

There's no hope, he won't budge. Normally he's so excited to give me things or tell me things, I always get presents early. But this time it's different.

I'm dying to know what it is!
I wonder if it is something really awesome!!!!!

Well I am off to ponder my next move in this game called "Let's find out what Steph's birthday surprise is!"

Hope you all have a wonderful Thursday!

I hope you have a fabulous birthday month! My sis and I used to open our Christmas present and rewrap them too, so I guess I'm a bad girl too.

We could be related. You just described me and my bro. I cracked the case of my surprise 30th party...ooops...I mean "25th" by hijacking into my friends email and finding the evite! I'm so low. It should be illegal to find out surprises but I just can't help myself!

Good luck on cracking this one, friend!

My mom and her older sis used to do the same thing with the Christmas packages, tisk tisk. My Nana and Papa never found out though.
I love surprises too but when I find out that one is on the horizon I can't stop thinking about what it is. It literally consumes me!
When is your bday?
Hope you two have a blast!
