Last week I charged you lovely souls with coming up with birthday ideas for my blushing bride, and you came out in force. Many of you felt that the way to her heart would be a day at the spa, which I thought was a great idea. Almost ready to pull the trigger on that idea, I was suddenly approached by my nosy little gal, who informed me that she had been reading the post, and although she likes spa treatments, she is already sitting on a gift card to one that she has had for almost two years. I asked her, "Well then, sweetie, is there something else you have your heart set on?" She replied, "Yes, I'd like an electric griddle for when I make pancakes", something she loves to do.
So I went out today and got her the griddle she asked for, which I kept hidden upstairs tonight while she opened her real present...which was wrapped in a griddle box. I thank you all for your suggestions, you really came out strong for me. In the end, I thought the safest course of action was not to give her what she asked for, but what she wanted.
