Let’s do a giveaway, shall we?

I love my husband, but, you guys, he’s pretty terrible at keeping secrets. My birthday is this Saturday, and for a couple weeks I’ve been proposing things to do, and his reactions are pretty much always like this.

Me: Want to go paddleboarding? I figure it could be fun to do on my birthday since the weather should be nice.
Husband: Oh, well, *coy smile*, um, I mean, yeah we could do that. *blushes and changes subject*

Me: I heard a lot of good things about [new restaurant]. I was thinking about making a reservation there on my birthday.
Husband: *uncomfortable laugh* Yeah, that’s one option.

I just sat tight and waited because I knew whatever he was planning wouldn’t be a secret for long (I mean, he basically even let it slip when he was going to propose to me), and I was right. Last week, he couldn’t hold it in anymore and told me he booked a room at our favorite resort in the Keys—and arranged for my mom to come stay with our kid so we can have a child-free long weekend, which kinda makes me feel like this.

So let’s do a giveaway! Up for grabs is a $20 Amazon gift card. Enter below, and the magical computer bot will draw a winner this weekend. Woohoo!

  3. Happy (early!) Birthday, Meredith! I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t just a *little* jealous… I adore Key West and I’d love some fun in the sun. I hope you and your husband have an amazing time!

    Awwww! Your hubby is so so so sweet! 😀 I am tad like him though I wouldn´t be able to keep it a secret. I once planned a surprise party for my then boyfriend now husband with LOTS of people and a special gift. Yep. Couldn´t keep it secret until the surprise party so he had to act surprised when it happened 😀
