undisclosed destination

#12 on my 40 before 40 list. To surprise A with an unplanned vacation. Today, I sprung it on him that we are going out of town this weekend to an undisclosed destination. After relentlessly hounding me to just tell him where we are going, he started guessing.

He named every city that has water near it within a 3.5-hour radius of our town. I just let him keep guessing and I responded to each city with the same answer. Yep, you got it. Totally annoying and it was driving him crazy. Here are some of the locations that he guessed.

San Francisco
Carmel

Sausalito
Santa Cruz
Stinson Beach
My friend took his wife to Half Moon Bay a few weeks ago. As a result, A is now convinced that we must be staying at the Ritz in Half Moon Bay. It is pure bliss seeing him squirm and try to figure it out.

Ritz Carlton - Half Moon Bay
On Friday morning, our little adventure will begin. I can't wait! Hubby will FINALLY find out the surprise location. Where do you think we're headed?

Fun!!! Can't wait to find out where you are going! I've always wanted to do something like this. Ideally, I'd love DH to surprise me, but planning ahead is not really his forte. :)

This sounds so wonderful. I think Disneyland! ;)

All of those places sound good to me though. I did this for my husband when he turned 30. He didn't know where we were going until we got to the airport. It was so fun!

Have a great weekend!

This may be the cutest idea ever! Perhaps I'll try this for an EXTRA special date night soon :) We just moved to California a few months ago, and it's amazing being with driving distance of so many great vacation spots. Decisions, decisions...

P.S. I'll be stalking your blog for mention of another mug swap soon :)
