So, Brandon came home with a pretty awesome surprise today.
Oh, you should have seen my reaction. This guy can keep a secret...for a long time.
I'll try to keep the story short. We have been shopping for a van for a while now to accommodate our growing family (wahoo for twins, can't tell you how excited I am!). We looked at a few different vans, test drove some, and talked about it a lot. Brandon knew which one was my top choice and today he did the coolest thing ever and went and bought it for us!
He came home from work and we ate some food, did dishes, whatever. He was trying to get me in the garage to see the new car but of course I am dense and wasn't picking up on any of his hints. Finally he said he was going to go work out in the yard and asked if I wanted to come. We went out front and I was going to do a little weeding (I should have picked up on this because usually he tells me I'm not allowed to do anything out there because he doesn't want me to go into labor). So we go out there and I decided I needed some gloves so I went and opened the garage and as it slowly opens, I see that there is a different car parked in there and it totally took me a minute to realize why there would be a different car and what car it was. It was the van I wanted! I pretty much freaked out and couldn't stop hugging him and almost cried. I wanted to jump up on him but I have a rather large belly that didn't allow it.
(This is what I saw when I opened the garage.)
So anyway, yay, a HUGE item off our to do list, DONE! I am so happy. And yay, we don't have to share a car anymore. He sold our Camry about two and a half weeks ago and it really wasn't bad at all sharing a car for a bit but this will just be so nice and not that we want our twins to come yet, but we are ready for them now. Wahoo!
That really was the short version of the story by the way. Made for a VERY happy evening.
And speaking of the twins, I realized today I am just about as big as I was when I delivered Mckinley at 41 weeks and I still have 10 weeks (hopefully) to go. Yikes!!! This could get scary...
