Surprise Date Night
On Sunday evening, while my hair was pulled up in a claw clip and I brushed my teeth, Jon let me know that he liked it when I put my hair up and let some strands fall in my face. He then off-handedly said that he also like it when I wore my blue button up dress shirt he had gotten me at JC Penny's a while back. I think he must know that I love it when he tells me when I'm pretty because thats exactly what I wore & how I wore my hair the very next day. Little did I know it was a ploy!
Monday he sent me an IM asking what my favorite songs from Les Miserables were. I sent him just a few, he proceeds to tell me he thinks the music is really cool & he's going to buy them from iTunes. Then he invites me to go out to dinner. So when I got home we went to Costco for a hot dog & slice of cheese pizza and soda. You really can't get a better deal, it was only $3. He then told me how he saw this really amazing house just down the road & wanted to show me. A few blocks away, and after listening to a few Les Mis songs we run into Orem High School which has a giant poster:
I was so excited! I could hardly contain myself! The auditorium was enormous & the high school students were just amazing! They had such stage presence & amazing voices. Jean Valjean was really so good!
I have the most thoughtful husband. I don't know how long he was planning this, but it made an impression on me. He listens to what I love and tries to include that in our dates. He loves to surprise me with these thoughtful gestures. I think its time I took a note from Jon & plan something for him.
