Surprise Birthday Road Trip

I've officially kidnapped my husband. I've been planning a little birthday get away for Mr. Mhire for weeks now and I'm so happy it's finally here. Last night I snagged him up, car fully packed, and told him he's not allowed to ask a single question. I really love surprises (the good kind of course), so this isn't the first time I've forced him on a spontaneous endeavor. He has sweetly abided by all my rules; such a sport. Our first stop was St. Louis. We are successfully three hours into our second destination and he hasn't a clue of what's in store, which I'm secretly very pleased about.

Here's a sweet little playlist I threw together for our surprise getaway..You'll
notice Bon Iver a bit much, forgive the obsession..

  2. Awww! That's so much fun! My mom and my friends threw me a surprise birthday party for my birthday last year, it was the best. I was so happy (after getting the best present in the world, my canon 50d, and my friends popping out of my closet) I began to cry. And I cried throughout the whole party... but of course they were tears of happiness. (:

  7. Aw, that's like something my husband would do, I love it! I'm too much of a chicken and a second-guesser to pull a surprise road trip (or even a surprise party)... but I'm getting better!
