What ever happened to that giant list of things that you and your girlfriend (or boyfriend) had when you first met? There was so much you guys wanted to do, but when you're stuck making a decisions it either: A) takes you over 10 minutes to decide which direction to drive in, or B) you're stuck at a crossroad and end up eating at the same place... again.
Well there's no better time than the present and what better gift would there be than to surprise her with an adorable date?! She'll love the thought you put into it, and it'll be a fun-fulled afternoon or evening... just don't show her this list. We'll say it was all your idea.
