the surprise

Well, as many of you know from my tweets leading up to the big day, I surprised handsome in Montana a day early. He got home from work Thursday and thought he was picking me up at the airport Friday morning, but really I was already there Thursday when he got home. I'm sneaky, I know. :)

The plan was to have his roommate pick me up at 12:30 when I landed, and he would get home a couple hours later. I flew from Phoenix to Salt Lake City with a 40 minute layover which was a terrible idea, because 49 minutes is barely enough time to get across the airport + board. And of course my luck the gate I arrived at and the gate I departed from we're at opposite ends of the airport, typical. 

After running to my second flight and getting on the plane, my nerves started to settle in. What if he figured it out? What if he wasn't surprised? I figured he'd call me when he got to his truck (like he always does) and instead of saying he was on his way home he'd say he was going to the store or to run errands or something. Not that that would be terrible, I just figured that the one time I wanted him to hurry home he'd have a bunch of stuff to do! 

But when I landed in great falls and turned my phone off of airplane mode (by the way they let you use your phone the whole time now- you don't have to put it away during landing and take off) I had a text from him. He said he was going to be home in about 15 minutes. And I was still on the plane. Cool. I really wanted to beat him home, and luckily I did. But barely. 

When we got to the house I ran to the bathroom to get some mouthwash and before I could even get my breath minty fresh I heard his big loud truck pulling i to the driveway. At this point I was so damn nervous I was shaking and shit. Chelsea and I we're watching out the window waiting for the perfect moment for me to run out there. As he was walking down the sidewalk to the house I ran out and yelled "hey handsome!" And I could tell he was so confused at first. It was awesome. He just smiled and was so surprised and I ran up to him and jumped into his arms. It was perfect! Best part- I didn't even trip when I was running to him. Which is a big deal, you know?
I couldn't have asked for a better trip. It was short, but we still had an amazing time. I'm thinking I'll dedicate the next few posts to my Montana adventures, so stay tuned!


Have you ever surprised a loved one? How'd it go??

  8. This is so sweet! I surprised my boyfriend once (I was teaching English in France and told him I couldn't come home for Christmas...but I did haha) and you perfectly described the feelings leading up to the big moment. It's so nervewracking and exciting at the same time! I'm so happy for you, this was just so cute to read :]
