Text Bait

I had an idea of a great surprise.  I’m hesitant to post about it because I really want to do this sometime for Tom.


I will spill the beans and hope it won’t spoil it for us in the future.

Here’s the plan – right before your spouse is about to head home send them a text message telling them to go somewhere totally unexpected.  You can be in the car to where you’ll see them arrive.  Once they get there, send them another text with a clue they have to collect – like “get a napkin from such and such a restaurant.”  Then, tell them where to go for their next clue.  You can do this several times before having them end up where you want them to be.  It could be at your home, at a hotel, at a restaurant or a park.  It’s totally up to you.  The whole idea is to keep them guessing and following your “Text Bait.”  It’s a fun way to go fishing with you being the “catch” at the end of the day. As an added bonus why not buy a pair of fishnet stockings!  😉

So why not plan a date of “Go Fish?”  You might just realize what a perfect match the two of you make!

    My husband did something similar to ask me to marry him! Except he was with me and his parents were one step ahead of us. planting notes and gifts for me to figure out where I had to go next..so much fun and will always remember it!
