Christmas Eve 2011, after a long day of fun at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter (we are complete nerds), hubby decides to be a sneaky sneakster and ask me to go out and pick up dinner.
As I am roaming the isles of Target I am completely oblivious to the amazingness that is waiting for me at home! As I walk up to the apartment, I notice hubby's car is gone and there is a note on the door...not just any note...A CLUE. This was the first clue in my upcoming 2 hour scavenger hunt around town. Every clue rhymed and made me nervously laugh because I honestly had no idea what would be waiting for me at the end.
What are these genius clues you ask, that would make Dr. Seuss roll over in his grave?
If I were a duck Id hang out here while you feed me bread. Since I cant, Ill just hang out here instead. (We feed the ducks at this huge pond by Target all the time)
I love to park here when I want something Swedish, probably to eat something meatish! (We always park in the same spot at Ikea and we both love the meatballs :)
I have never seen a train on these tracks. The road sucks, its always cracked! (This led me to a back road we always take with broken train tracks)
Dunkin Donuts makes me go nuts! Why would anyone ever throw these away?! (Near the dumpster at Dunkin Donuts where we used to eat breakfast alot)
If you could sit anywhere in the mall, choose here so asleep I could fall. (We have these couches in ZGallerie that we used to go sit on once a week...we will buy them this year, I promise!)
Youre already in the mall...If you were me, Id check the tree! (He left a clue in the GIANT christmas tree hanging from a ornament in the middle of the mall)
Now its time to head back. Be prepared for your gift, and a heart attack!
You'll find an ornament thats not the same. Yoda would say "find it, and end will your game!" (My hubby is perfect. enough said.)
As I headed to the tree there was a new stocking ornament and I picked it up and felt nothing inside so of course, I throw it on the table. The ring falls out onto the floor and I scream YES!!!! Hubby never even had a chance, did he? And like any good wife who ruins surprises, a few days later I proceeded to ask why he never got on one knee and confessed his undying love to me. :)
Here is the ring I fell in love with
a 14k white gold 3 stone ring with a center 1.5k diamond.
I know what horrible rap song just popped into your head...
"everytime I come around your city, bling blinggg"
I think its perfect and never give up the opportunity to show it off
