Four Year Anniversary

We celebrated our 4 year anniversary on the 19th (really? that went fast!) I had such a fun time planning this and I was totally inspired  by The Dating Diva's, if you havn't checked out there blog you need to, it is amazing! They have two great posts for 4th anniversarys you can find them here & here, I took inspiration from both of these. 

All of this was a total surprise to my husband. I can't believe I was able to keep it a secret ( I get really excited about surprises!) I started out by giving him this Chinese takeout box that had 4 fortune cookies in it. The fortunes were pretty generic, I didn't want to give to much away with this part. I had him open each cookie with an envelope that had a clue about the day in it.   

 He was so confused when he read this and started asking all kinds of questions about if the little man was coming, who was babysitting, what he needed to bring, it was pretty funny. Of course I had everything packed and babysitters arranged :)
Our drive took us to the gas station, romantic huh? No? Well it was planned, after we filled up and got some treats for the drive I had him open the next cookie and envelope #2.
Envelope #2 took us Go-Kart Racing! I wanted to make sure that we did something we had never done before and this was SO much fun!! Not to mention that I totally kicked butt and won!! When we were done racing he got to open the next cookie and envelope #3.

 
 How do you like that cheesy saying? I was having a major case of mommy brain and could not think of anything! Oh well, the hubby didn't care when he found out we were going to his favorite place on earth, Texas Roadhouse! It was delicious as always and we were stuffed. After we finished eating I let him open the final cookie along with envelope #4.

 This one was hilarious! After he read it he looked at me and said what does this mean, we all ready had a awesome night! This is when I told him the BIG surprise, we were going to Park City for the night. He could not believe it and kept asking me if it was a joke!! He was so shocked and it was just the reaction that I was hoping for!
Once we got to Park City I had the game Connect Four and the movie Fantastic Four.

The next morning we went up to the Utah Olympic Park and watched Team Austrilia practice the ski jump. We stayed there for almost 2 hours, it was so fun!  
 We definately had an awesome anniversary and I know that my Husband loved it!!

We did the above part of our anniversary a little early due to the husband's work schedule so this is what I gave him on our actual anniversary. 
This idea came from Love, Actually (another great blog!)  
 And the final gift for my wonderful husband was this candy gram that I saw over on

I love you babe and I really am the luckiest girl in the WORLD!!

Linking up to THESE great parties!
