#421 why i love my husband

He planned two different birthday surprises for me in one day!

If you know me at all, I HATE surprises. I hate not feeling in control. But he went about this in a way that didn't make me want to pull my hair out.

It started out this morning. We got up and he declared that he was going to clean the house. That's strange. I asked why he was doing that, and he said, "I just thought I'd be nice and clean the house before you go back to work Monday." Still thought that was weird but I thanked him. I left for an appointment to get a manicure and pedicure that he had set up for my birthday. I had been sitting in the chair for about 2 minutes when my mom walked in. She said she was getting her toes done too! And about 5 minutes after that, my cousin Sarah walked in! I had NOOOO clue they were was a fun surprise!

Then I got a text from Ty to get a couple bags of ice on the way home. I texted back and said, "Is there something else going on?" It took him awhile to respond, so I asked my mom and Sarah. They kind of just stared at me a minute. Then my mom started laughing and said that "Yes, we're going back to your house with a cookout with your friends." (She had permission from Ty to tell me.)

Ty had asked my closest friends from high school and work to come and celebrate my birthday with me. It was definitely unexpected, and good to have everyone around. Ty cooked us all burgers, brats, and chicken on the grill and we just chatted and had a good time!

I wish I had thought to get a picture with everyone before they left, but I think we were all caught up in the conversations and it just slipped my mind. As far as surprises go, this was a great one. I didn't feel overwhelmed or anything...just loved.

Ty was so sweet to do all this on his own. Plan MY mani/pedi, invite my mom and cousin and set up THEIR appointments, invite my friends over, go buy food and drinks, and cook for us. I love him, and I hope he knows how much I appreciated him doing this for my birthday!

xoxo, wife.
