Wow!!! What a great story. Good job and congratulations TandT!!! Have a wonderful time at CTI.
Oh boy, I can see a bunch of women showing this thread to their husbands, and being a husband, I hope it works for you all. What a great read and a great ending. 140 days to Swept Away, but no surprise planned yet, although it is our 40th Anniversary, hmm.
I am so glad it worked out for you. I would be happy if my hubby would take a little initiative to do some things for me at home let alone plan our trips.
So excited to read the update. Thank you, TandT for taking the time to tell us how it went. I am so happy that she was pleasantly surprised and pleased with your packing skills. Kudos to you! Enjoy your trip!
AWESOME!!!! I don't think that I would have the courage to do this for my wife, as I know she is a packing guru for our trips. Kudos to you. I know that you will have an awesome time. Dunn's River Falls is a great excursion, and a "not to be missed" adventure.
Be sure to show her this thread, and wish her a very happy birthday from us. She is a very lucky lady to have you.

I know you guys are already at beautiful CTI and I think this is amazing! I wish I would have seen it earlier because I would have told you that almost anything you forgot could be purchased at CTI's store. Bathing suits, cover ups, even nice dresses :-) I certainly hope you took a trip to the island! My husband & I have been to CTI twice and go there FOR THE ISLAND! Always a party :-) Hope you had fun! and Happy Birthday!!!
Still have two more surprises up my sleeve.... ;)
Private dinner on the island tonight and then horseback riding on the beach tomorrow.....
This place is pure paradise... we will definately be returning...
I just read your follow up post as well... Job well done!!!!!!! You actaully heard her, and went out of your way to make sure it was special, in turn making her feel special! She will never forget the effort and the thought you put into it!!!!! Again GREAT JOB! She is a very lucky lady!
TandT - GREAT NEWS & WAY TO GO .... Been waiting to hear .... I told my husband about what you were doing & he said that if he packed for me that I'd have a complete nervous breakdown ..... LOL ..... Which is probably true but as I reminded him - I about have a complete nervous breakdown packing for myself anyway so I'd be willing to risk it ..... Hope that seed has been planted. :rolleyes: So glad you're both having a good time ..... That was VERY SWEET of you & know that your wife will cherish the memory forever !!!!
tony i would die without my hair straigtner, hair ties, all my hair stuff lol!!! I love this!!! ummm i would also want my beach bag, but don't sweat it they have a gift shop if she needs something but not make-up type stuff. But if she already knows to pack for one night she will have the must have stuff!
I showed the wife the MB when we got home - she was really surprised with the effort I put into this and she is planning to post a big recap from her point of view tonight!
I'll keep you guys posted!
Thanks again!! Couldn't have pulled it off without all the wonderful people and suggestions here on the MB!!!
All women (and men) are different, but I would love to be completely surprised. I don't know if she needs any special hair products like a certain gel, curling iron, special type of hair dryer, etc. watch her get ready one morning and take note.
Hi guys... This is Mr.T's, Mrs... (TandT) First of all I would like to thank everyone on the board for all the packing input. He did a wonderful job!! The only thing he forgot, as everyone I'm sure knows, is the underwear.. but I guess he was right, (another shock) I didn't need them. (No need to elaborate on that one I'm sure...lol).. I dont know where to begin on how AMAZING my husband is for doing this for me.
As everyone knows, I was completely shocked from the moment we stepped into the airport. When we said goodbye to the children, the dogs and every other home thing, I was just so happy to be away with my husband, it didnt matter where we were going.
Never ever expecting to be whisked off to Paradise and have all of the amazing, romantic, loving and considerate things he did. I guess he really did listen when I told him about my dreams. Horseback riding on the beach, a relaxing, stress free day in the sun (completely free on the Island..lol) a romantic picnic, which turned out to be an over the top candle lit private dinner on the island, and a couples massage after a day at the beach. No stress in what to pack, who's going to watch the kids, dogs, house, vacation time from work, he truly went above and beyond to make this my ULTIMATE DREAM!!!
He truly is the love of my life. I have to agree with the ladies on the board that commented on how wonderful he is, and how lucky I am to have him, trust me, that is an understatement!! He is the BEST and I could not have asked for anything better in a man...
CTI along with all my husbands planning was by far, the BEST vacation we have ever been on. We didn't want to come home. CTI is by far a couples Paradise. We met alot of really great people, especially on the island that also added to our great time. Thanks to you guys for telling Tony to take me there the first day...and thanks to my husband for making me get up to get the first round of drinks, it definately was an ice breaker for me ...needless to say, it was all fun in the sun after that.
Just a note to let everyone else know, we never went to any other sunbathing spot..
We're already looking into a Paradise week next year. (Can't come fast enough)... Sory I took so long to post and to sincerly thank everyone on the board for your input on making this the most memorable vacation ever...But I know everyone knows how it is, now...back to reality.kids, dogs, work. chores, etc....ughhhhh...
Looking forward to our next trip to PARADISE!! Thanks again everyone.........
Toni (Mrs. TandT)
Awesome...so very :cool: !
And so very jealous...lol
Toni - Glad you had such a FABULOUS time. I think you're both "Keepers".
I would love this......him packing and all. One thing that you might need to think of his hair stuff......curling or flat iron? Gel? Certain type of hair dryer or diffuser? Watch her get ready a few times and see what all she uses, so you can make sure she has it :)
