I'm not sure if you remember last year's post, which you can see here, but I mentioned last year that A and I came to an agreement that each year 1 of us would be the present buyer and the other would be the organiser of the plans/supriser.
This worked our perfectly for this year, with all our wedding related expenses.
I was the supriser this year and I was so so so excited for the night, way more than A because I knew what was in store!
At around 4:30pm, I got an email from security saying "parcel for you" and I thought nothing of it, A doesn't usually send me things to work and I thought it was probably just something boring I had ordered for my office, plus I was busy trying to get out of work on time, so I thought I'd just leave it.
At 5pm I get a call from security "Sarah we are going to eat your chocolates" to which I replied "What chocolates? Ooooo it's a special package!" and I ran downstairs to see what it was...
My first EVER box of a dozen long stemmed roses, ohh how I loved them!!!
Of course, I think boys are entitled to flowers as well and at lunch time I had picked these up for A. He looks thrilled to be holding them doesn't he? :P
We headed down towards darling harbour, and with some time to spare, we ducked into a bar for a beginning cocktail.
I forget what it was called, but it was tequila based and delicious!
After our cocktail we continued on our journey, and I was being all secretive until I couldn't find the entrance to the place and we had to turn around... then A got cluey and said "We're not going to the Wildlife Park are we?"
Even when I said yes he didn't believe me and then I explained how we were getting canapes, a sit down meal with the Koalas and drinks for 3 hours.
He couldn't stop hugging me and telling me how well I did in planning the surprise. He was so excited.
I loved this little echnida!
The night was great - we started by wandering around looking at the animals, sipping on champagne and eating entree canapes.
Only 15 couples were allowed, so it was nice and intimate - it felt like the whole place was open just for us!
We had a Kangaroo talk.
Our restaurant for the evening.
Then we sat down for a sit down dinner, we shared our meals and let me tell you, this food was good if I was in a restaurant, let alone in a wildlife park - it was beyond my expectations!
It was also awesome that these little guys were in the trees around us. After we finished eating, A then surprised me with 2 necklace and earring sets. As long as I am with this man, I will never ever need to buy myself jewellery.
Darling Habour even provided us with a fireworks display.
After dinner, desert canapes were served and then we found out about the giant 5mtr, 700kg croc!
By the end of the talk, I think it is safe to say that I was rather "Merry"
This is my collage labelled "you can't take me anywhere", which A said multiple times that night hehehe.
At 9:45pm we were told that we could run through Madame Tussuad's next door before it closed if we wanted to. Wanted to? of course we do!
A and I dashed through taking photos with as many wax figures as we could.
It was such a fun night and the next day A was still telling me how much he enjoyed it!
Can't wait to marry that man xx
