The Happy Day Project #6: Surprise Someone

Hehehe. I had fun with Alicia’s (over at La Famille) challenge this week. At first, I had so many surprises in mind for so many people that I had to narrow it down.

And Joey was the recipient of my surprise.

Because we are fledgling business owners, we have a very limited (aka as NO) eating-out budget. For date nights, we often make omelets or nachos. Or, if we are really going wild, we use some of the grocery budget to go to Subway. So, I decided to try to scrounge up some money to treat him to supper.

And this was the perfect week for the surprise because this week on date-night Friday we had had a big order at our fledgling business: cake for 400 people.


By the time we were finished frosting and decorating eight large cakes, I knew that Joey just wanted to step away from any more food preparation, so I sprang my surprise. I asked him what he wanted for supper and he said, “A big chicken fried steak.” I said, “Okay. Go order it.” He laughingly said, “Are you paying?” And I laughingly said, “Yep.”

That’s when I knew I had really surprised him. He mockingly staggered back, holding his heart. Hehehe.


Doesn’t he look surprised?


Hopefully, this meal won’t have him clutching his heart for real in the future.


We are obviously easily surprised–and amused. Now, I’m going to figure out how to execute some of my other surprises. Hehehe.
