We then sat on the couch talking and snuggling with Kona, who is always desperate for attention after being home alone all day. At one point AJ asked for his computer and looked at something that I couldn't see. I asked him what he was doing, but he either didn't respond or I didn't hear what he said. I then got distracted and didn't follow up. After he put his computer away we started talking about what we wanted for dinner. I noticed that he kept looking past me instead of looking at me when we were talking. At first it didn't alarm me, but then he started doing it so frequently that I stopped in mid sentence and screamed "What are you looking at!?!".
It was then that his surprise was ruined. I knew something was up...he knew I knew something was up...so I finally squeezed it out of him. He ordered two Oxfords from Gap that were on sale for 12 dollars or something (I'm proud of him for getting a good deal!), but he felt bad only buying stuff for himself, so he bought a dress for me too! Behind me were the windows and he was keeping a lookout for the UPS truck. He had checked the status of the package on UPS.com when he was on the computer and opened the blinds on the window near the door so that the UPS man would know that we were home.
Now, this is a big deal because this is the longest AJ has ever been able to keep a surprise from me. He is no good at keeping secrets! This time he lasted a few days. He even hid the email confirmations so I wouldn't find them. Too funny.
Isn't he sweet!?
