Surprised you with construction? I woke up from a nap yesterday to find my dh doing demolition on our bathroom. We have talked about redoing it before but it was mostly just talk. I was very surprised he said it's my birthday present. Luckily we have the exact same taste and he does construction so I'm not worried about how it will turn out at all, I think he is so sweet for doing this.

No my husband wouldn't do construction as a birthday present for me. 

I mean he would do construction on the house for me just not as a birthday present.

If he had discussed it before then I wouldn't mind! But if it was just out of the blue.....well I don't like surprises very much! I would still be great full though. It's a very nice gesture.

This is most likely his thought process...

Crap her birthday is coming up > what do I get her, she has everything she needs > I have a slow week coming up > I would really love to use a sledge hammer right now > I'll remodel the bathroom!!

He would never admit to how he comes up with stuff but I guarantee he realized it was my birthday, panicked, then noticed a sledge hammer lol.

Not my exdh. But one year the week of Thanksgiving (the day mom was going to have 40 people over...) dad decided she needed a new kitchen floor. I'm still surprised he lived through that one lol

I don't think so, I would rather him remodel a bathroom than buy me jewelry or something that I won't use and probably have two of already. I'm hard to shop for, at least he remembers my birthday and thinks of something.
