As I’ve said, Darling Husband and I are packing up and moving cross-country in just under six weeks. Unfortunately, the day we hop in the truck and go is also the day Darling Husband turns 30. You’d think that since he’s 30 and not 7, he would get over this, but alas, he is kind of butthurt that he’ll be spending this milestone birthday loading a giant truck with all our belongings and driving it a couple hours out of town.
I already decided that I’m going to get him a kickass present (either an iPad or a Kindle Fire, but that decision will be made with another thread, haha) and make sure to wrap and hide it long beforehand, so I can totally surprise him with that. But what else can I do to make him feel special on his birthday? A nice dinner may be out of the question, since we’re going to be chained to our truck and probably staying in a freeway motel somewhere in Bumfuck, Maryland. Maybe I can try and smuggle some sort of cake product along? How could I get away with that if we’re packing the whole truck together that day?? I’m putting myself in charge of packing a cooler with things for the road … maybe sneak something in there and hope he doesn’t go digging for a cold Rock Star?
Bees, I need your creativity to help me out!
