(by Aubree)

This is what I woke up to this morning. The new Stephanie Meyer book, flowers, and a sweet little note. It was a beautiful sight! My wonderful husband went through a lot for this suprise too. So this is what happened. Last night I was exhausted, but we started a movie and I couldn't finish it, so I went to bed. Jeff said he didn't feel like sleeping, which isn't abnormal--a lot of times he will stay up on the weekend when I'm too tired to. A couple of hours later, he woke me up and told me he was hungry and he was going to get something to eat. I thought nothing of it, so I didn't suspect anything about what he had previously planned and where he was really going.

Earlier in the day, Jeff had read that the new "Twilight" book "Breaking Dawn" was coming out at midnight, and knowing what a fan I am, he decided he would stay up and go buy it for me after I fell asleep. He called the book store earlier to see how late they were staying open, and they told him they were having a party starting at 12:00 midnight where there would be people that would dress up and celebrate the new book coming out, and they thought they would be open until about 1:30. Jeff decided he would leave at 1:00 am so he could miss the party and hopefully most of the crowd. Well, when he got there, there of course was a huge line, and he felt a little awkward being a full grown man waiting in line with a bunch of teenage girls dressed up like vampires. Not too long after he got there, he decided that he would just go back home, order the book online, and get me flowers with a note telling me that the book was on its way.

So he went to Smith's just down the road from our house (by the way--the book store he went to was in Bountiful about 10 miles away, and there was a big accident that he ran into on the way that slowed him down) to get me some flowers, and lo and behold, there was a shopping cart full of "Breaking Dawn" books right as he walked in the door. So he was able to buy a book without having to stand in line (and still decided to buy me the flowers anyway). By the time he got home, it was past 2:00 in the morning.

To my precious husband: you are so sweet, and I love you so much. Thank you for going through so much to suprise me. It means more than you know.

What a sweet husband! Hope you enjoy the book- I still need to read the 3rd one.

Hey, have you read it yet? I got one on Saturday too. I am 3/4 of the way done. I think it has been very good so far. I am a huge twilight fan as well.

Enjoy the book!
