Dreams really do come true!

From our previous post, you might guess that Jason and I just celebrated our 4-year anniversary. Well, this year Jason really outdid himself. Its been a known fact that Jason has never, truly been able to surprise me. Somehow or other, I always know what we are going to do for birthdays, anniversaries, etc... Well, this year he was determined to surprise me and he did just that. Our anniversary was Thursday, but we celebrated on Friday. We dropped Kamryn off at my friend, Heather's house and we were off. (A huge thanks goes out to Heather for watching Kamryn for us from 10am to 10pm...and we apologize that you had to witness one of her classic tantrums...we owe you!) . Anyhow, Jason started by driving the most random way to Disneyland. He wanted to throw me off by taking the 10 to the 605 to the 5 and for those who know the area....that is not the most direct route. So, we get to Disneyland and he "calls Ron to sign us in." (Ron is our good friend who works at the Dland hotel and usually signs us in). So we go to allegedly meet him and once we get there, Jason then tells me we are not waiting for Ron and to wait while he gets our tickets at Guest Relations. At this point, I am still totally baffled. We get into the park and start going on rides and goofing around and having a blast on all the big kid rides.
Here I am on a segway. They were letting you ride these things at the "Innoventions" place in Tomorrowland. It was pretty cool.

Anyway, soon enough, the surprise is revealed...and I have one word and a number for you.

CLUB 33!!!!! Holy crap, I almost threw up. This has been a dream of mine for years now. For those who don't know, it is an exclusive Disneyland club that you can only get into if you know a member. Walt Disney used to entertain his friends here, so after he died they turned it into this fancy shmancy club. Jason has a friend at work, whose father is a member and he hooked us up. Jason has had this reservation for THREE MONTHS and I never knew until the day we got there. He done himself proud.

I was debating whether or not to post this picture because of how hideous I look in it, but I decided to post it anyway so you could all see the extreme giddiness that is plastered all over my goofy looking face. This is a picture of us riding up in the French lift (elevator).

Yes, I took a picture of my food....just so you could see the 33 on the plate. I ordered the Filet de Chateau briane (I probably just butchered the spelling on that) and Jason got the 5 course meal with the New York Strip Steak. This food was divine...and it better be for the pretty penny it cost us. I was not let down in the slightest with my experience here. Everything was so fancy, from the Evian water they poured us to our waiter whose name was Alistair. But as fancy as it was, everyone there was so nice and seemed down to earth.

They even offered to take pictures of us, without us even asking. It was truly a magical and romantic evening and I am so grateful to my husband for realizing one of my dreams and making it come true. You rock my world Jason!

Alright Jason! Maybe Jarom can get some tips from you for our August anniversary. That sounds like so much fun! Congratulations on 4 years.

I've known about Club 33 since high school. I can't believe you got in! Way to go Jason! I guess Amy wasn't too good for you after all.
