It Just Gets Better.

This weekend was the most romantic of my life.  It all started with a phone call. 

I was driving home from pmac (backwards) and my cell rang.  I almost didn't answer it, as of July 1, California is hands-free while driving (I hate ear pieces), but I hit speaker.

On the other end was my husband, who had supposedly headed down south to check on our non-summer house and would be back tomorrow.  He said, "Pack a bag.  Include something nice to wear to dinner.  You can shower when you get there."  Then he hung up.

I was all a twitter.  My husband is a good man, fantastic father and hotter than all get out.  But, not exactly the type that plans romantic get-aways.  That's my job.  Our ten year anniversary is July 25th and apparently, he was surprising me early.

I got home, packed some stuff and waited.  He walked in and handed me a key.

No fair! You can't just leave us hanging like that. Wait--I guess you're waiting to tell all 'cause the weekend isn't over yet and you're still getting your romance on?

Okay, then--take all the time you need. Until Monday.

for a hotel suite or a new car????
what,what??

I only like surprises when they are somebody elses.

You say it's romantic, so I vote the hotel suite.
Ah. I see you are perfecting the "danglers". Happy Anniversary. I am celebrating my 10th this month as well.

That's just wrong!! I have to go back to work tomorrow and may forget to check back. Bummer
Connie said…
I sooo need a call like that. Anything to keep my mind off of the last two weeks is welcome. Only problem is I can't leave my kids right now. Couldn't even let my daughter go with her best friend to the fireworks unless I went. I know it's fall out from Mom's death but 'dealing' at this time seems impossible when I am the 'strong one' for the family.
Thanks for checking in with me ... it meant the world to me.

I'm leaving this entry on the screen for my hubby to stumble upon. He needs some inspiration! Can't wait to hear the rest of this story.

I can't wait to hear the rest!!! My husband planned a little trip once - I knew we were going somewhere but I didn't know where.
