The Biggest Secret I’ve Ever Kept….

by DanicasDaily on August 13, 2011

Happy Friday Saturday since this didn’t post!!  I am so freakin’ excited that I can finally tell you all about the BIGGEST SECRET I’ve ever kept in my life!  I DID IT!!! I am honestly really bad at keeping secrets….I am pretty sure I wouldn’t be too good at poker either because The Husband can always “read me” based on my face LOL.

But, this time…..this time, I got him good!  He is actually turning the BIG 4-0 on Tuesday, August 16th so I knew his birthday present HAD to be good this year….

Bigger than BIG….

Extra Special……

Something he would NEVER EVER expect me to do, yet has always wanted to do!

Because honestly I LOVE THAT BOY more than anything




I wanted to give him the world….something he will never forget…..

I planned, conspired with my closest friends and family and just took a leap of faith…..



PACKED HIS BAGS in a way he wouldn’t notice anything missing (this included buying duplicates!)

Then, I told him, we were just heading to the City for dinner ~ but, he didn’t know where.

When you read this we will be off having dinner at Forbes Island (you know the place he kept having me take pictures of a few weeks back Open-mouthed smile!)


Instead of driving home, we will be driving to the airport and heading to…….



He has ALWAYS wanted to actually stay at Atlantis especially after our visit last year during our cruise


After all…you only turn 40 once so I had to make it extra special!!

Did I mention he has NO CLUE?!!! Details of how it all went down, his reaction and our recaps coming up when we return. 

Stay tuned for some fantastic guest posters I have lined up for you all!

See you all next week!!!


gahhhhhhh so freakin’ excited

Wow that is simply the best and sweetest present ever! I can’t believe you even went to the trouble of buying duplicate clothes just so he would have no clue! That’s brilliant!

I hope you and your husband are having a wonderful time!!

PS. Congrats on the weight loss! You are an inspiration in more ways than one!

What a great wife you are! I can’t wait to hear about his reaction. I don’t know how you kept the secret. I would be so afraid it would slip. I get way too excited when someone else is going to get something great. Just ask my sister the year she received a gumball machine when we were little. 😉
