66 Months (Three posts in one night)

My husband is a theme kind of guy. He loves the theme birthday parties, theme holidays ect. Every year for Easter I get flip flops, nail polish and if I'm lucky an article of clothing all the same color. For my 28th birthday I got 28 presents on the 28th of January. I usually come up short in the creative department, he always out does me. :)

He told me he had a surprise for me on Saturday, his sister came to babysit (thanks Kristine) and we were off. We arrived at Applebees and he had to just tell them his name and they had a special table for us. (I was really confused). We ordered and Jared started giving me hints on why we were at that table in particular. It took me a while but I noticed a route 66 sign above the table, that was the big hint. I was still pretty confused and trying to figure it out. But by the end of our meal I found out that Jared had been planning today for quite some time. He had hoped to go on a road trip on Route 66 but because of gas we took just a small trip.

He gave me 66 dollars of spending money and I only had 66 minutes to spend it. It was so fun, he kept a timer on me and I made it with 3 minutes to spare. (except for the small shoe detour on the way out) We went to the mall and then target. I got three very much needed pairs of maternity pants. :)

Why 66? Because as of today we have been married for 66 months!!!!
I love my husband, and I love my new clothes.

What a super sweet husband. You can't get them to do that it has to come natural.
GOOD JOB Jared.

Amy said...

Wow! Impressive. Sounds like you had lots of fun.

Very cool!! Sometimes just a date is nice but a whole themed one with shopping... you caught a winner!

Jared, you already got 139 and "Very Superior"! What more do you want??? (Actually, I'm very impressed, and the guys are probably all sorry they didn't think of it.)

Gosh! He's good. So, when does he have time to think up this stuff. When you find out let me know so I can arrange it for Doug. It can' be during church that's when he takes his nap.

Wow I know he was planning something, but I never even found out why until now. He is a hard one to beat! I may never find a guy when compared to my brother!! Glad you guys had such a great day and I loved seeing Lincoln..too cute.

Thanks everyone, it was fun to see her excited to go out and her mind started racing to the store at the sight of the money :). Her pants are very cute (and I don't say cute often). Happy 66 month anniversary Anna.
