the joke's on josh!!!

I had a VERY successful April Fool's Day!!

I must say, I am quite proud of myself!

I had been planning this for a while, because Josh got me GOOD last year!  Before I tell my April Fool's joke on Josh, I will tell you what he did to me last year!

Last year on the night before April Fool's Day, we had a long conversation about getting married and when we wanted to get married, etc.  I went home feeling happy and excited for what was in store.  {Also that night, Josh had told me about a position that had opened up at Aspen Ridge(where he currently works) and he had had an unofficial interview for it earlier that day.} 

The next morning, he called me while I was getting ready for work and told me he had good news AND bad news.

The good news was that he had been offered that job. {Lie #1}


The bad news was that he had to go to Arizona for a month for training. {I easily believed him because I knew the company had a facility in Arizona}

I acted as happy and supportive as I could on the phone, but deep down I was extremely sad that he was going to be gone for a month-especially after the big marriage conversation we had the night before.  How would this affect our marriage plans?  Would he still want to marry me after he got back from Arizona??

We ended the conversation and I headed to work, fighting tears the entire time.  A little while into work, I checked my phone and saw that Josh had called about 5 times.  I snuck down into the stairway and called him back.  He immediately said, "APRIL FOOLS!!!"

I was SO relieved!!  Ever since then, I have had a plan to get him back!  Josh is constantly tricking me, so it was time for some sweet revenge!!

The timing and everything about this trick was PERFECT!

This morning Josh received a text with this picture:

Along with the picture I said,

"Surprise!!  I stopped at the store this morning and bought another test!!!  ahhhhhh!!!"

{This may be too much information, but I completely skipped my cycle last month and really did take 2 pregnancy tests this week-which both immediately came up NEGATIVE.  Don't worry, I am NOT pregnant and you won't hear a baby announcement from us for a while.  I am still on the pill and NO!  That is not an April Fool's joke!}

Last night while we were talking in bed, I told Josh I was going to take one more pregnancy test the next day, just to be sure!  (The timing of my April Fool's joke could not have been better!)

Anyway, when I got to work, I went to Google Images and typed in "Positive Pregnancy Test."  I took a picture of the picture with my phone, and sent the text.

A little while later, I get a call from Josh at work.  I could immediately hear the panic in his voice.  I wish I could remember exactly what he said, but it was somewhere along the lines of, "Oh my gosh!  Are you serious?  Is that picture for real?  We can't be pregnant!  etc, etc." 

My original plan was to get him going on this all day.

However....I have a HORRIBLE poker face and cannot tell a lie to save my life, so after a few minutes of his freaking out, I busted up laughing and yelled, "APRIL FOOLS!!"

It. Was. Awesome.

He totally fell for it and I was finally able to trick my husband. 

Allison 1.  Josh 0 (For 2010 at least)

Also, every year on April Fool's, I am reminded of an April Fool's joke that was played on me on Concert Choir tour Junior year by two of my good friends.  It is a GREAT story, and would blog about it if I could keep my eyes open for 5 more minutes, but I don't think I can.  I will have to tell it sometime though.  They got me good!

Natalie and Shawna....prepare to get punked!!!  haha.  :)
