Life is Grand!!!

Last week I had a great time surprising my hubby! On Wednesday I happened to win an ebay auction for a Browns pre-season game. I got two tickets for $1.04!!! I couldn't believe it! I paid a lot more for shipping, of course, to get them here in time for game night last Friday. I decided to keep this a secret from my hubby, so I talked to a buddy of his into taking him...the friend was more than willing!! So for two days I had to keep this to myself. It was def not easy since I was so exciting about it! I told my honey to get off early on Friday since I had something planned for him. I packed them up a dinner, got directions, received the tickets in time, packed a poncho, got the digital camera ready, bought two cheap shirts (one brown, one orange-since the seats were in the Dawg Pound), found my hubby's stadium chair, and saved some money for the downtown parking...all to make sure the guys were well taken care of.

As you can read here, the guys had a great time! They had quite an eventful drive to the stadium, and then a long walk from the parking garage to the stadium. But, at least it stopped raining for the game. My honey came home a very happy man (at 2am) who had no clue that I would surprise him with NFL tickets to a game almost 3 hours away! It was so much fun for me!

How was your weekend?

What a terrific surprise! What a good wife you are! I hadn't thought of looking for that sort of thing on Ebay. I'm still a newby at it! Great idea!

My weekend was lovely thank you for asking!

I hoped that uhura might do the same for me, now that I am retired and more able to attend matches.

I got nothing though.

I guess i'll have to attend that Klingon cage match on my own.

I actually had two co-workers bet lunch on the outcome of that game. How much more fun would they have had if they could have gone to the game to see the outcome decided.

At $.52, it would have been no problem!

What a great surprise! If my hubby were a sports fan, he'd love something like that.
