Surprise, Surprise

Wednesday, when I got home from a long day at the office, Brad mentioned that he wanted to take me out to dinner Thursday night downtown and to look at the city Christmas tree. Fun and romantic, right?

I got home from work (late again) Thursday evening, and we loaded up for P.F. Chang's. He had put Michael W. Smith's Christmastime album in the cd player, and we were singing along when he reminded me that it was the 5th anniversary of our first date. I thought that was incredibly sweet of him to remember. On that first "official" date, he took me to the Michael W. Smith Christmas concert over in Dallas. Such fun memories.

As we were talking over dinner, I made a joke about getting him a present, but that it was wrapped and under the tree. (I have been trying to get him to let me open this one package early, which is a scheme I try every year, and I thought this might work if I let him open one.) Well, to my surprise, he had something for me in his pocket: Celine Dion tickets!

Because I would never subject him to a Celine Dion concert, I am taking my mom with me on January 5th. (I think he is a little relieved.) I can't wait! I'm definitely going to see Celine!


  1. I am so jealous- of the concert and the way romantic gesture from the hubs!! Way to go BRAD!

    P.S. Fadectic is the word verification word. Couldn't that be a new word to describe someone who is addicted to fads? I think I'll start using it.

  2. Wow! Way to go Brad! What a sweet and romantic husband! Glad y'all had fun! Dec. 3rd was the 3rd anniversary of when Justin and I got engaged! Time sure flies!

    My word verication word is minglent...sounds like a mini penguin or something! ha ha
