Surprise...and for no reason!

Last week the hubby stayed home from work on Friday because I was still battling a nasty cold, sleep deprivation, and feeling overwhelmed with life. So, being the superb hubby that he is he stayed home, took care of the chillins, cleaned the house, and.........

planned a special alone night, just the 2 of us. It wasn't our anniversary, my birthday is not for another month. It isn't the anniversary of our first kiss, first date, day we got engaged, or the day we met. It was for no other reason than to just be together. Isn't that special?

He called Grandma to babysit, planned where we were going, the works. I did get to help in the room selection, though. He told me we were going to a Bed and Breakfast and I was totally excited. For about 5 years we lived in Provo and always saw the Hines Mansion. I'd wanted to go there ever since I heard about it, but budget wouldn't allow it, nor would or time restraints. Screw the budget and time, he decided we needed to be alone. I am not one to let my kids have overnighters- E.V.E.R. so I have not left my kids overnight for much more than being in the hospital to have the next baby. This was a treat!

I will spare you the gory (fantabulous, uber romantic) details, but suffice it to say, we had a most wonderful time. Thank you to my fab MIL for taking care of the kids so I didn't have to worry about them. Hubby and I loved every minute of our overnight getaway. Check out the mansion if you are planning on a getaway. It was very cozy, reasonably priced for a BNB and the food was phenomenal!

After we got home hubby told me he wants to make sure we do that once a year. It only took us 10 years to figure that one out!!!!
