10 Years, 10 Clues

As of tomorrow, Marshall and I will have been married for 10 years.
We don’t usually do much for our anniversary, but this year?
He’s taking me on a mystery trip!

Each day, I get one clue.

So far I have:
1. We will fly Delta
2. The hotel has 31 floors.
3. The weather there is forecasted to be better than the weather here.
4. The flight will take no more than 3 hours.
5. There is a river near where we are staying.
6. We will be remaining in the Eastern Time Zone.
7. It’s a city I’ve been to before.
**I’ve been to a fair number of cities on the East Coast, so that really doesn’t help me out all that much.**
8. Dress code for the event Sunday: a  Sunday type dress, but not “churchy”
9. Weather Forecast:

Low Saturday night: 65
Sunday: High 79/Low 65, Partly Cloudy, 20% chance of rain
Monday: High 84, 0% chance of rain.

10. (I’ll find out the city once we get to the airport.)

A package was delivered yesterday with the mysterious tickets.
And although I’m pretty excited about the mystery destination and the mystery plans,
I am most excited about taking a trip with just the two of us!

Have you ever been on a mystery trip?  Where’d you go?

    that’s awesome- 1 million bonus points to Marshall 🙂 Hmmmm well the river clue may have something to do with the Mississippi- b/c it’s pretty much close to everything right now 🙂 and I can’t believe it’s ten years– wow!!

    What a wonderful husband you have. It’s great that he would do something so special to show you his love! Enjoy your time together, take pictures and be grateful for the love you share!

    My husband has done this for me a few times in our married life. (We’ve been married 27 years) And everytime it makes me feel so loved. I am grateful for men that are willing to show their love so freely.

    Oh, how fun! This is fantastic! I think I’m going to have to show this post to the Hubs… he has 3 1/2 years to plan! 😉

    Enjoy getting each clue, but more importantly, enjoy the time with just the 2 of you!!

    I’m gonna vote NYC! (Perhaps I’m a bit biased, but it totally fits the clues, assuming you’ve been here before). Marahall wins a million sweetheart points for making this fun for everyone you know!

    Happy Anniversary! I’m guessing NYC and a trip to see Wicked of course! Maybe I’m wishing that for you but that would totally be awesome. I hope whatever it is you have a magical time and take a ton of pictures!
