Today we celebrated my boyfriend’s birthday (his real birthday is April 9th- tomorrow)…and I surprised him by taking a trip to get him an expensive pair of in-line skates that he really wanted. It was so cute– he showed me this pair of rollerblades he wanted about a month ago and I told him I thought they were ugly (which was partially true lol), so a month later I called his mom to ask what size his old rollerblades were and she asked why– I told her I was planning to get him a new pair, and she told me oh no! he had asked her if he could have money for his birthday so he could buy the blades on his own…CRAP! So I told her to tell him not to buy them yet (1. to see if he bought them and 2. to stall him) because someone she works with son might be able to get a discount..Meantime, I called a sporting good store in NYC and had them put them on hold for him, so get this–we are walking in the city to a surprise brunch (so he thinks) and he points out one of the top sports stores in the city that and tells me all about the store and how it sells different high end sports equipment (CLUELESS, I had put his rollerblades on hold at this exact same store!) and I said oh really, maybe we should go in I need a new pair of sneakers for running…we go in the store and I told him the truth and he started tearing up!!!! It was SO CUTE!! He was shocked that I got him so good and joked around that he felt like he was being pawned back and forth and couldn’t believe he had believed it all- YAY!!
SO, I ask what were some of your best surprises?!
