Sweet Husband & A Delightful Surprise

Yesterday was my 25th birthday as well as my first day of school. I was hired in late October of last year so I never had to do an official first day of school and I was REALLY nervous for this one. I, of course, woke up extra early to have enough time to get to school and be prepared. Around 6:30 I hear Dirk call my name and I peek my head around the bathroom door wondering what he is doing up so early. He very groggily says, "I have to get something out of my car, I'll be right back." I say, "Okay" and he leaves. Well 10 minutes later I'm starting to get worried, it doesn't take that long to walk down the 3 flights of stairs get something from your car and come back up. After 15 minutes I'm starting worry that he got mugged or something (I know, I know) so I call him and he says he'll be up shortly. When he comes in he's carrying a Starbucks drink carrier and a pastry. I thought it was so sweet of him then there was the real kicker. He says, "It's a Pumpkin Spice Latte."

Now, you have to understand that almost three years ago (is that correct Alyssa?)right before Jon and Alyssa got married Alyssa had me try her Pumpkin Spice Latte and I fell in love. It used to be that it didn't come out until October and then last year it came out around the end of September and I have been talking about it for at least a month now. So when Dirk walks in and tells me he has a Pumpkin Spice Latte I was really surprised and very excited. I guess they came out yesterday, at least in some stores. I like to think that Starbucks gave me a birthday present. My hubby is so sweet and the Pumpkin Spice Latte was AMAZING!!! I can't wait to get another one!
