My Weekend Adventure

I didn't have any big plans for the weekend...there's always lots to work on around the house, enjoying the girls long weekend and the nice weather.

Well, I woke up Thursday morning to a love letter on my nightstand that told me I did indeed have plans for the weekend and I needed to pack my bag!

I did as the letter told me. At 10 AM I received a call from a friend informing me we were having lunch together.
I got in the car, only to see it well stocked with water and my much loved Dark Chocolate Frappacinos!
On the way to lunch, I stopped by the chiropractor for a much needed appointment my husband lined up for me.
Lunch was wonderful and encouraging. My friend then gave me another letter telling me that my husband had scheduled a (much needed/2 years in the waiting) hair appointment for me!
As my hair cut was wrapping up, some of the girls that worked there brought me a bag full of snacks and another letter. (One of the young college girls who worked there said, "maybe he's going to propose tonight!" I just laughed)
The letter told me that there was a reservation at a hotel for me...a night to relax and watch my favorite show (The Office).
(I will add here that The Office is my only show that I love and want to watch, but Thursday night is also the night Jacob works late...and so I usually don't get to watch it!)
I had a wonderful night of laying in bed and watching TV!
Friday morning my phone rings, and a dear friend is on the line (all the way from Oklahoma) It was nice to hear her voice and all her wonderful encouragement! She then proceeded to tell me that my husband had put an envelope of money (and another love letter) in the car for me to have a day of shopping! (With the rules that it couldn't be spent on the girls or the house).
I had a great time...taking my time and actually trying things on!!!
I received another call telling me to hop in the car again and drive 3 hours to see my best friend Sara! She's a busy mom of 4 littles and a new business owner of a floral shop. Needless to say, we don't get to see each other enough!
I arrived Friday afternoon, and was informed that my husband was sending BOTH of us to the spa for the night!
We had massages, manicures and pedicures...and lots of laughs! We came back to Sara's home and relaxed...with a movie and some cookie dough to eat!
Saturday there was a bit more shopping and another love letter saying it was time to return home to go out for dinner with my husband!
As sweet as that time was...I missed my husband and girls so much...I was ready to come home.

Could a girl do much better? I think not! He's the best!

I can't believe it. That was so nice. I don't know why but I almost cried--so thoughtful of Jacob.

Glad you had a great rest of your trip . . . and glad I could be "in" on it :o) You deserved it girl. I'm sure it took you half a day to start relaxing (at least that's my experience!). Did you get any good clothes FOR YOU? Can't wait to hear more details sometime soon. You are loved and missed, friend.
