ACTORSCIA....What does that spell??

This morning when our alarm went off Josh handed me a valentine's card with a big A on the front of it. Inside it read....

A if for Amazing. You're an amazing wife, mother and friend. You amaze me with your excellence at work and at home.


8 More of these cards showed up randomly throughout the day. Josh told me to keep them in order because they would eventually spell something. As you can see, the order was quite odd...I could not figure out what he was going to spell.

C is for Caring. You are so caring towards other people which is why everyone wants to be your friend.

T is for Team Rives. I am so excited about Team Rives growing bigger and sticking together.

O is for Old. I cannot wait to grow old with you and watch our kids grow up. I love the idea of being with you for 100 years.

R is for Relaxation. I love to just relax and do nothing next to you. We should do that more often.

S is for Sweet. You have such a sweet personality and everyone loves to be around you.

C is for Creative. You are so unbelievably creative and I am amazed at how you can take nothing and turn it into something beautiful.

I is for Incredible. You are an incredible woman of God, an incredible mother to Lucy and an incredible wife.

A if for All. As in you have all of my love and you have all of the letters you need. What does that spell?

After he gave me the last card when he got home from work, he fessed up and said that the cards were actually not in order and that I needed to unscramble them to figured out what they spelled. So, I spread them all out on the dinning room table and finally figured out that they spelled....


That's right....Josh is taking me to COSTA RICA in August!!! How sweet, romantic and creative is my hubby??!! I was SO surprised...I think Josh definitely got the reaction he was looking for!! I was squealing loud and jumping high for a solid minute! It's so much fun to have something exciting like this to look forward to. And another surprise....the Simmons are going with us!! We love traveling with Chris and Marina!! We've racked up quite a few British Airways miles from all of our travels to and from Zambia over the past couple of years, so Josh decided it was time to put them to good use....in Costa Rica!! I can't wait to get there!! Now, it's time to get serious about losing these last 10 pregnancy pounds!! Motivation....motivation....motivation!! :)
