HA! Have I mentioned that I love surprises?
I was thinking that my sister might be reading the blog so I figured yesterday’s post would be a great way to totally throw her off. You see, I have been known to pull off some fantastic surprises!
Yep, that’s right, the boyfriend and I flew across the country and showed up at her house on Friday night to pull off a super surprise!
Some quotes from J over the past few months as she was disappointed that I wouldn’t be coming out (or so she thought!). I heard:
- ‘You love to travel, why wouldn’t you just come out for my birthday?’
- ‘It’s not like my 30th birthday just snuck up on you – you’ve known for thirty years’
- ‘I really wish you would come out and celebrate with me’
- ‘When am i going to see you next? It’s been almost six months’
- ‘I miss you.’
Here’s a recent text exchange:
Lil sis (her): I’m going to be 30 in 9 days =-0
Awesome big sis (me): I know but I’m beyond upset that airfare is so ridiculously overpriced that I’m going to miss your entire bday month. Still hoping and looking. I will keep you posted. xo
Lil sis: Yup
Big sis: If I can’t find a flight tomorrow for this weekend or next I’m going to book for December. Let me know what Dec weekends are best.
Lil sis: For someone so on top of her traveling I’m quite surprised this wasn’t already done
Big sis: Can you take any Fri or Mondays off?
Lil sis: No more time left
How bummed was she?! Or so she thought!
J – I wouldn’t have missed your birthday weekend for the world – and coming from me, that’s really saying a lot.
Editors note: If you are following along in real-time, you will notice that blog posts for 11/11 and 11/12 did not post in real-time due to the major surprise element. This also is assuming that J reads my blog every day. There were no surprises harmed in the scheduling of these two posts.
