Good Afternoon DB Readers! Here’s another treat for you! Chandra’s fiance’s birthday is TODAY, and we had her share how she planned a thoughtful and *budget friendly* birthday surprise for her beau, Daniel! Read her great post below on the fun day they had riding horses!
Daniel’s birthday is today! Since we are trying to be somewhat cautious on our spending since our wedding & honeymoon are just 3 months away – we are coming up with creative ways to celebrate each other – which in my opinion, is always better because you have to put a little more effort into what you are going to do instead of just buying a gift card & shoving it into an envelope.
Daniel has never been the type who likes being covered in gifts or expensive things; he’s a country boy at heart & easy to please. Give him your time and he’s a happy camper. This year, I wanted to do something a little different. Yes, we live in Texas – but contrary to popular belief, as Texans, we don’t always ride our horses to the grocery store or park them outside of the local saloon. Heck, most Texans don’t even own a horse. So, I thought it would be a fun little excursion for us to partake in.
Oddly enough, after I had been thinking about doing something like that for Daniel’s birthday – what do you know? I see a great deal online for a horse trail ride. So you better believe I snatched it up! We went this past Saturday since we both work on his actual birthday. We had the time of our lives. We absolutely loved it and have agreed that we will be buying horses in the future! We spent the day hanging out, went and saw a movie, drank wine & watched the game at a local hangout spot.
Tonight, we will be hanging out with family & Daniel’s mom will be making his favorite dish of all time – Chicken DeVan! If I’m lucky enough, perhaps I can talk his momma into sharing her secret recipe and I will share it with you guys. This dish is to die for.
