Surprise! | LOVELY LITTLE RANTS

Surprise!



Sunday after church Jason goes "K you can't look at my phone because I have a surprise for you later tonight!!!" A surprise!?!??!?! I am the worst at surprises. Like the literal worst ever. I always ask for 854698892342795 clues, always make millions of guesses, and always BEG to just be told. Also, I am learning that patience is a virtue I need to work on.... like a lot. Jason always has the best surprises ever so it always KILLS me when he says he has one and then I have to wait for it.

FINALLY after waiting a few entire hours and just having finished dinner at his parents, he said we could go to the surprise now! Obviously I was so excited and asking questions for days on the drive to the surprise. We pull up to an apartment complex and all I could think of is that I had to pee (typical Candace) So I asked if we know the people we were about to go see and if it would be weird if I asked them to use their bathroom. J said we didn't know them and it would be weird. haha anyways, we've been mom-car shopping so I thought maybe he was surprising me with meeting up to test drive someones car to maybe buy or something??? We waited for the people to get home as we sat outside their apartment door. 

Up walked our friends Weston and Darian!! The surprise was that we were hanging out with them (I've been wanting to hang out with them for like 100 years so it was such a good surprise) Plus married friends!!!! Married friends are hard to find. You have you like the wife and your husband has to like their husband, otherwise it's not fun to hang out because one spouse is always like.... this isn't fun (if they don't mesh with the other spouse, ya know?) We all get along so well and it's like a married friend match made in heaven. Wes and D are cool because they go on adventures! 


Stole this from D's instagram of them because they're the cutest things ever. This was on our adventure (of course) Also I was so sad I didn't get a picture with Darian, guess we just have to hang out again :) 

We headed to canyon lake and talked and skipped rocks and explored and it was great. For .1 second I was a little sad that we may not be able to go on adventures that much once baby is here and then immediately I was like WAIT YES WE CAN! Because babies love adventures!! I just got the ergo baby 360 that I've heard is amazing so baby can totally hang in that and adventure with us. Oh I can't even wait!! 

Anyways though, Jason and Wes are rock skipping PROS. Like if it was a real sport they would probably be team captions, for real. When it was getting dark, we went back to their house and hung out for a little while longer before it was time to head out. s/o to Jason for being a little surprise sweetie :)

  1. So glad that you guys got to hang out. I agree that finding a great married couple to hang out with can be tricky, with getting everyone to mesh just right. We have a few of those, and we've definitely been on at least one double date where my husband totally requested to never go out with the couple because they guy was being SO lame the entire time that the rest of us were trying to have fun.
    The pictures are gorgeous!

  6. Preach. lol Married friends are near impossible to find. In fact, we only have 1 couple friends and they aren't married, though it's totally coming. We love hanging out with them, and our little one has a total crush on the guy! haha

  15. That is beautiful! I love it when we get older, things that make us happy aren't material. Sometimes, it's the company of friends or people who matter most to us!

  16. Sometimes I seriously can't believe you're pregnant lol. Like I just opened up your blog and looked at the top instagram pictures for like two minutes and was like, "wow when did that happen?" Hhaha. I've been so MIA. SORRY!!! I miss being a good blogger. That was fun lol. Maybe it'll happen again? Anyways. This was such a sweet post. I love that you guys surprise each other. We have NEVER lol. And I say this a million times, but AZ looks so beautiful. You DEF have to bring that baby around on your adventures. There's no reason not to!! Those ergos scare me though lol. The last baby I watched, the Mom was always like, "you can take the baby carrier" and I'd be like...ah no thats okay. I felt like....I don't know a person with another person attached to me haha. I'm sure it's totally not weird feeling though if it's YOUR kid. I just didn't think it was normal for me to wear someone elses child haha. I'm so weird.

    1. hahah I forget I'm pregnant sometime when I'm getting dressed and then I'm like wait... can't wear that right now! I miss being a good blogger, too! So I feel ya, life is just crazy lately for some reason! And you have a better excuse than me, you MOVED! hahah I guess I never really thought too much about the carrier but I would probably feel kind of nervous carrying someone else' kid in one just because like what if they cry because I'm not their mom and then they're stuck to me in this carrier!
