My wonderful boyfriend came in to see me this past weekend. I had school on Friday and he said that when I got home, I would have a surprise waiting for me. This was completely out of the blue, so I had NO idea what he was going to do! He made me call him when I was on my way home that afternoon. When I arrived home, this is what I found...
this note was outside on my garage door
as I walked in, this is what I saw..
and continued to see while also hearing Brad Paisley's "She's Everything" playing in the background(Bryan says that song always reminds him of me)
up until I got to the sliding doors that lead outside the backyard to my patio
It was my SWING!
To give you a little background info, I've been wanting a porch swing forever. I don't have any room in my front yard for one, because I don't have a big porch, so no porch swing for me :0( So, I just wanted to get a swing that I could put out in my backyard on my patio. I'd been planning on getting my swing, but because I was recently put on a budget(thank you Bryan ;0) and took another look at my finances, I decided that the swing would have to wait. Bryan has a porch swing at his family's house and we love hanging out and relaxing on the porch swing. It's kind of our "thing"! So, that was my big surprise when I got home on Friday afternoon! He had gone and gotten my swing, spent all day outside putting it together, and got a really bad sunburn in the process! Poor baby!
I don't know which I was more impressed with; the swing, or the fact that he wrote sweet little notes all over the house and laid them down with roses. HOW ROMANTIC! :0) I was so impressed with him. I always say that I USED to think I was romantic, but I sure don't think so anymore. Bryan beats me in that category!
Here's a picture of my beautiful roses!
and all the little notes! I'm not sure if you can click on the picture and enlarge it, so I'll just write out what each note says. Baby, I hope this is ok. If not, oops! :0
