- Wedding: October 2013
Well bees, I hate to dissapoint, but it was not a ring….It was something so much more special!
Which one of you said he was going to have the lawn landscaped??!?
SO is a professional landscaper for his mothers very successful, and high end landscaping company. SO works LONG hours, sometimes from 6 am till 9 pm. Today I got a call from him arounnd 4 pm…”Hi hunny, listen….were going to be working kind of late tonight. We have this one last job to do and it’s a pretty big landscape job. But I need a favor. Can you go over to my mom’s house and keep an eye on the dogs? Hunter has been messing around with Dino a lot and Dino isn’t feeling well.” So me being the stupid ditz that I am, thought nothing of it and went on over. I was there for almost 3 hours when SO called me and said his dad would be coming home soon, so I could go home. His mom lives about 10 minutes from our house, so I stopped and picked up some dinner for us, and started home.
I pulled into our court, not even looking around or paying attention. And out of the corner of my eye I see SO, his mom, and Jollan, one of the other landscapers, sitting on my front steps. I thought, what the hell are they doing here!?!?! I parked, and got out…..And only then did I realize that our entire front yard, which had always looked so crappy, was not BEAUTIFULL landscaped with mulch, pansy’s, Mums, and liriope! It looked GORGEOUS!! They had spent HOURS doing this just for me! SO even had a card sitting in between a few plants.
This was so special. Not just because they took time out of their hectic and busy schedule to do this, but because SO built this for our home with his own 2 hands. It gets me teary just thinking about it. He did this for OUR HOME.
OH! I forgot to mention….The surprise his mom had for me on thursday???? She rented a HELICOPTER for us for a few hours! And not just any helicopter. But the same exact one that the Queen of England, Donald Trump, and a few other famous people have ridden in! I was sitting in the EXACT seat as they did! She flew us to NYC and I got to see NYC from air!! The even had to file a special flight plan because of flying over NYC and the whole 9/11 thing.
So safe to say, this has been the most AMAZING birthday ever. The only thing that could have made it better was a ring! But you know, I’m so content with my life, that it really doesn’t seem to be the most important thing on my mind anymore!
