First came the note in a mostly-empty bag of potato chips.
Hints got me started on my scavenger hunt to find 2 gifts he'd hidden in the house. He does this so he doesn't have to wrap anything or buy me a card, but its fun so I let him get by with it.
The first gift was a message in a bottle - not sure if you can see it, but the beer bottle even has a picture of a ship on it.
GIFT #1 - Jay being responsible for dinner for the next 14 days! *Disclaimer at the bottom advising that the coupon has no cash value and cannot be redeemed for any other services.*
The next gift was hinted at as being an "approximation" of the first gift. (First gift being a message.) The location hint was "in an area designed by Jay" - meaning the closet. I knew that right away, however finding it was like a needle in a hay stack.
This is my side of the closet. I assumed (hoped) he hadn't hidden it on his side amongst his thrift store t-shirt collection. I felt each of the stacks trying to find something lumpy. Finally Jay gave up on me and started saying "hot" or "cold" depending on how close I got.
Turns out, my gift was flat, thus making it difficult to find. Eventually I stuck my hand under my KTC Socialites race jersey.
And pulled it out to find...
A gift certificate to my favorite spa!!
I get to have a manicure, pedicure, and a 50 minute massage!! My man knows me well. I love the time and effort he put into the scavenger hunt, not to mention the work he's going to be doing the next few days cooking me dinner!!
