The Ninja's Birthday

So this year for The Ninja's birthday I wanted to surprise him with an awesome gift. When we first started dating we talked a lot about going on a cruise with our friends. It was going to be the ultimate in worry free vacations. We talked a lot about it, but then life got in the way and we never did get around to planning it.

I finally got around to it and I decided to give it to The Ninja for his birthday. Here is how I did it.

First I found our cruise. We will be traveling on the Norwegian Jewel out of Houston for seven days. We will travel to Cozumel, Belize City, and Trujillo before heading back home.

I wanted to tell him in a fun way with our friends since a couple of them will be heading to sea with us. I decided on making an origami boat with the locations of our cruise on the sheet. Once it was folded up he wouldn't be able to read it. I placed a flag in the top of the boat that said "Unfold Me!" and then placed it in a oversized mason jar. I used an origami folding tutorial from YouTube. You can find it here

Here is The Ninja opening his gift: (Sorry about the sound quality, we were in the middle of a busy restaurant with all of our friends!) 

P.S. I know I typo'd maintenance, but it's too late to apologize!!! Well, I guess this would count as my apology...

It was super fun to be able to surprise him with something I knew he would enjoy! Have you guys ever had the chance to plan a BIG surprise!?! How did you keep the secret!?! Have an excellent Wednesday everyone and remember to alway stay exceptionally chic & exquisitely geek!!!
