When Shaffer saw his wife, Misty, he said, “Wow! It’s really just icing on the cake because I’ve been happy with the way she’s looked since day one.”

Aww. Misty Shaffer hadn’t seen her husband for over a year, and kept photos of her new figure off the web so he wouldn't see them while deployed.

“I just kept pictures off Facebook, offline,” Misty told WECT-TV in Wilmington, N.C. “When I did send him pictures, they were from the shoulder up.”

And even better? Misty also had a second surprise for Larry: She bought a house for the couple and their young daughter. They're set to move in soon.

The woman handles her business!
