My Husband Couldn't Keep His Secret

My husband, Trey and I were watching one of our shows the other night when he paused it right in the middle...

"I can't keep a secret from you" he said a little too seriously.  It made me a little nervous :)

"I...booked a trip for us...to Florida today"


"What?!"  We have been wanting to go since before we got married.  And talking about it like it would happen a couple decades in the future.  Luckily, since we have been saving every penny we can and got a bigger tax return back than we usually do we can almost afford it. 

"I got a deal for less than half what it usually costs."  Because, you see, we look at deals for trips to Florida more than we probably should and we knew what it would cost at any given time for the past 4 years...

So, that was his secret.  Kept for an entire 4 hours or so.  Which is totally Trey because he couldn't even hold onto my engagement ring for a few hours after getting it. :)

So now...I am hoping and praying and wishing that the oil spill won't affect it...REALLY hoping.  And dreaming about what it might be like...




And REALLY REALLY hoping it won't be like this:


P.S.

Did I mention one of the main reasons we are going there?



Yep.

Sounds like you will be going during football season & Jacksonville is on the East side of Florida, hopefully well beyond any damage. It is beautiful there, and Sawgrass is just a little drive over into Georgia. I'm laughing at your husband's gift...my precious husband loved the Univ. of Texas Longhorn football team more than anything. We always went whereever they played, so I've gotten some nice little vacations because of football, and if the team won, I got to go shopping. xx's
