Surprises Are Hard to Pull Off

It’s really hard to plan surprises when you live life with your husband on the road. Of course the little surprises like having the kitchen clean before your spouse gets home or a little gift here and there are still doable, but bigger surprises aren’t always that easy to pull off.

I am a huge fan of planning events – and planning ahead for that matter. For friends, for just the two of us, whatever! The trouble with doing this is always the scheduling… Chico can have shows pop up on the schedule at any time – it’s just the nature of the biz.

  1. It’s SO hard to pull of surprises when you can schedule anything in advance! I have this same problem but also the same ‘pro’s” to this 🙂 Getting to travel to interesting places is also a major plus side! I love your guys’ blog but I can’t see where to subscribe to it.. Such a cute idea and you will have this forever to look back on 🙂
