the time my best friend drove 27 hours and surprised me.
on sunday, mike suggested that we head to the Forks (market/shops/restaurants/river walk) for the afternoon. there were quite a few things that really needed to be done (including an intimidatingly enormous pile of dishes) but i agreed. i took my time getting ready to go and mike kept hovering around impatiently - not really like him at all. it's usually me that hovers around annoyingly.
we got to the forks and mike seemed to get flustered as i suggested that we go to the frozen yogurt place instead of the ice cream place - and oh, maybe we should sit by the river - or at least go outside to eat... finally he got me to sit down at a table. we had just dug into our frozen yogurt, when a sweet voice asks, "is this seat taken?".
instinctively i thought, "lady, there are lots of other seats around!" (ha! i'm so unfriendly?!)... then i looked up and saw my beautiful friend melissa, who hails from surrey, british columbia. i screamed, hopped around, looked between mike & mel in astonishment, and demanded to know how they planned this. absolute, complete, and utter surprise - a fabulous feeling! i was in a state of shock the rest of the day!
so i've decided that when best friends + boyfriends plan surprises, it's the best combination ever.
