And I thought NO ONE could surprise me...

Let me just walk you through what happened to me last night...

I get a text from Katie asking what I thought about posting at night. Whereas it's never worked out well for me, she said she was going to test it out and see if anyone would actually be reading blogs on a Sunday night. Father's day, to be exact. She then continued with...

So 10ish minutes go by, and like the good friend I try to be, I attempt to be her ONE reader.
The title reads something like "Grow/Change/SURPRISE". I roll my eyes and think "Oh Lord. Another insightful post from Katie...is she drunk again?" (Slightly kidding...)

I'm impatient so I completely scroll through all this sentimental "change" crap thinking I need to get to the meat of this post already...

And then...

I read this...

*Steph (SJHK)-SURPRISE WOMAN! In just over 2 weeks, Billy and I will be arriving in your neck of the woods (literally-hello Frio river!) bright and early at 10am on July 3rd and staying for 6 lovely days, until Monday the 9th. Please have my Range Rover, our norm Iced coff, with a side of sangria, to pick us up from the airport. And yes, Beau and I planned/texted about this behind your back for a couple weeks...don't hate me.

Followed by this image:

She said "Y'ALL"!!!!

Okay so maybe that was 50% of the shock. The other 50% was obviously that she has been planning this for WEEKS now and EVERYONE and their chihuahua has known about it except moi! WEEEEEKS!!

It took a few loud screeches and about 20 minutes of "OH MY GOD" before it really started to sink in. And then I realized this is in 2.5 short weeks and instantly started regretting that pizza I had just shoved in my pie hole. Shit.

Not only will they be coming to MY hometown but they're coming with us to our favorite place in the whole wide world...the Frio River!!!! FOR 6 FLIPPING DAYS!!! They'll meet all our friends, our family, go to our favorite bars and even get to see where we live/where we'll be moving in a few months. Excited is a complete understatement.

She ended her post with this: "It has been killing me the past couple weeks to not be able to tell you, but we thought it would be fun to surprise you via blog post so, here we are. I know Father's Day is a hard day for you, but I hope this cheers you up a bit. I figured you would kill me if I didn't tell you at all, because you would probably want notice to shop and detox first. Am I right or am I right?"

A surprise, on Father's Day (one of the toughest days of the year for me) and even a fair warning to shop and detox prior to her arrival. That, my friends, is what you call a gem. 


  1. When I read that she was coming to Texas last night, I got SO excited!!! I really hope I can have the honor of meeting up with you two, even if it's just for a minute! I know you'll be super busy!
