Yep, you read right.
My husband is blindfolding me, throwing me in the trunk, and driving to an undisclosed location for Lover's Day.
When we got hitched, my husband and I decided to take turns planning Valentine's Day every year. Last year, I kind of set the bar high by turning our tiny apartment into an intimate, private restaurant that served our favorite Thai food and homemade chocolate-covered strawberries.
Last year's set-up:
I went a little crazy with the hanging streamers but hey, Connor was speechless. :)
Okay Ariel, get off your high horse now.
This year, Connor has decided to take the surprise element to a whole 'nother level. He has not told me anything about what we are doing for V-day. A funny fact about Connor is that he cannot keep a secret from me. I swear, I don't bully them out of him, he just tells me everything! (just kidding, sometimes I'm a bully)
So I've actually been extremely impressed with how well he's been holding up! Of course, to relieve some of the stress, he's told pretty much everyone else (his co-workers, our friends, even MY BOSS) where and what we are doing.
So yesterday, he finally wrote me this adorable note:
[insert cheesy pet name here], I wanted to do something extra special for you this year for Valentine's Day! Since we have been together I have been uptight with money and often turned down opportunities to travel because it is too expensive. So this weekend we are going on a road trip!!! Now I won't tell you where we are going until we are out of Provo, but I realize that you need time to prepare so below are listed some points that you can use to pack.
-We will be gone for 5 days and 4 nights
-It will be warm where we are going (it is south)
-Bring your running shoes because we might go on a hike
-There will be a pool
-It is supposed to be sunny!! (still pack a sweater!)
I have emailed [your boss] so don't worry about work. We will be leaving at 3:00 PM tomorrow!
[insert cutely drawn heart] U!
-Your Valentine! (Connor Hamilton)"
Yes, he made sure I knew the note was from him (as opposed to another valentine).
Oh how I love this boy.
So basically, my husband is sweetly and kindly kidnapping me.
And I'm totally okay with it.
Ahhhhhh, but the anticipation!!!
I guess I just have to wait till after 3 today to figure out where we are going!
If you're as curious as I am, you can follow my Instagram to find out where in the world we end up!!!
Happy Lover's Day my lovelies.
And for my homies with a lonely heart this eve, grab some fellow lonelies and party it up like it's nobody's business.
