Birthday Surprise

Today is Richard's 25th Birthday. 
You may remember my first surprise-IRONMAN. Richard found the dvd *less than 24 hours*after hiding it, and he wasn't even looking.

This wasn't the only surprise he ruined (unexpectedly, I may add).

I also planned on taking Richard to Wendy's for his birthday dinner.
We used to go to Wendy's quite a lot when we lived in Provo. However, we hadn't even gone once since living up here. NO JOKE-The DAY after I thought of this idea, Richard and I were out running errands together. When we were done, instead of heading towards home, he made a different turn and drove right to Wendy's! He said, "We haven't gone once since moving here. I thought it would be a good end to our day together!" I couldn't believe it!

Lastly, for sentimental reasons, I was going to buy some IBC rootbeer for him.
In a creative response to him asking me on my first date, I bought some IBC rootbeer for him, and left a note saying, "I B C'n you at the football game" So, how was this surprise ruined? Last week, there was a sale on 2 liter bottles of pop. But 3 get 3 free. So, Richard came home with LOTS of rootbeer.

After this incident, I just came out and told him all my other thoughts and surprises for his birthday, because I couldn't handle it anymore! It was all way TOO funny. So I made one more trip to buy him a present. You'll never guess what I got him. Except, I'll just tell you cuz I don't care--a toothbrush. Yes, Richard, you get a new toothbrush for your birthday. 

Happy Birthday Silly Man.

Sometimes it seems the harder you try, the worse it gets! This story just cracked me up because you started planning so far and had such clever ideas. Oh well!
