Some of you that have been reading for a while may remember last October when I tried to be a super awesome fiance and plan a surprise birthday trip for Kristian down to the Outerbanks in N.C. which is his most favorite place in the world to fish. Well as you can see in THIS post things didn't go according to plan when his car broke down.
Well we've decided to try again this year. Unfortunately with the expense and time needed each weekend for wedding planning we were never able to make it down there prior to getting married. So next Thursday night around midnight we plan to head down (in my car which has about 100K LESS miles on it) so that he will be on the beach bright and early for fishing Friday morning.
A few things are different this time around. First being that not only was the trip not a surprise but Kristian pretty much did all the planning (I will be doing most of the paying as my gift to him). Another difference is that this time we are going with another couple. Kristian's friend Rob and his wife Holly. This will be nice because now Kristian will have a fishing buddy and I'll also have someone to talk to while he's fishing.
We'll be staying at a quaint little motel on the beach that looks more like little cottages and will probably have a pretty low key weekend, though I told him I would like to try to go out for a nice dinner Saturday night to celebrate his birthday, which is actually Oct. 22.
Hopefully Mother Nature won't be a bitch and try to ruin our fun with rain like she did at the wedding. But even if she does we'll still make the best of it just like we did at the wedding. Work has been so insane lately thanks to this being our busy season that having a day off, even if it's a rainy day at the beach, sounds fabulous right about now.
