@MrsHoneyC:  I like both ideas, the difference between them is do you want him figuring this out to happen in teh airport (in public) or in the car (in private)?

@MrsHoneyC:  I gave a shorter answer on the Charters thread but I’ll give you the whole story here.

I waited 12 days to tell Darling Husband because I wanted to do it in person. He was goe over Christmas and I flew down there a few days beforehand to visit him. I bought a mini Xmas tree and some lights to decorate and surprise him with a gift! I waited until he left for work and decorated a small area of the house he was staying in. When I was done, I placed a wrapped gift under the tree. Inside was a custom onesie I had printed up for the occasion. We’re both big sci-fi/fantasy fans and huge nerds in general, so that’s how I chose the font and wording. The covered area is our last name:

I like option 2! It’s so cute and there’s more anticipation while he’s opening the gift!

Aww both of those are great ideas, I think I like the VW one a little better since it is personalized a little. Congrats! I also got my BFP at 8dpo πŸ™‚ crazy early!

option 2!! you’ve been waiting to give that to him so i think you should use it. πŸ™‚ does he see your chart when he’s away or just ask you via text how it’s looking?

I had to wait 24 hours and it was so hard! Eight days would kill me! 


I gave Darling Husband a coupon that said something like .. Good for one baby .. Redeemable in June 2013

I pick option two

Both are super cute but I think I’d go with the second option. There’s suspense and surprise and excitment all wrapped up in one with that box!

I don’t have much of a story since I basically shoved the pee stick in DH’s face 5 min after I took it, but I just wanted to say…..

CONGRATU-FREAKING-LATIONS!!!!!!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ So happy for you! And I would never be able to hold it in that long, so good luck!  I think both of your ideas are adorable and I bet he would love either one πŸ™‚

Yay congrats! I like number 2! I think private is better. I also think with the balloons you will be around a lot of distractions and it might not work out as well. He will be happy to see you, carrying a suitcase, trying to find you in the crowd… I can imagine how just a little distraction could really take away from it! I think number two is more likely to work out
