my first thought: what on earth did she get me that would be too heavy to carry upstairs?!
i slipped on some sandals and, with Sam behind me, opened the door to our apartment to go get my gift. and then i stopped dead in my tracks.
why? because this guy was standing right outside my door:
it honestly took me a second to realize that my boyfriend was standing in the flesh in front of me! i think i said something along the lines of "you are not here right now!" (i tend to deny things when i'm surprised...it's a weird thing). i was so shocked and surprised. it took about 10 minutes for me to fully accept that he was actually here. after a couple minutes of denial and hugging, they filled me in on their sneaky plan to get him here and surprise me for graduation. moral of the story? i have the best friend and boyfriend on the planet. his visit couldn't have come at a better time (i had a stressful couple of weeks and was so happy to spend time with my favorite person).
oh, and the best part? i get to see him again in just 3 weeks!
