I don't like when my husband works Saturdays. I don't complain though because it's nice not having to stretch the paycheck as much. Besides, he's making up for times this winter when work was slow. He's usually home by 3 or so when he does work on Saturdays so it could be worse, but I still would rather have him home with me!
So a few weeks ago, on a Saturday, when my husband was at work, my doorbell rang and there was this sweet old man handing me a beautiful bouquet of flowers. I ripped open the note...
I was so thrilled! I had always thought it was soooo romantic when a husband did this kind of thing for his wife and now my husband was doing it for me. Totally out of the blue.
This is my puzzled face. Definitely not a mad face although looking at it now, I think I look a bit irritated. But for real, I was puzzled and tickled!
We headed out and made some stops along the way. One of them to MacDonald's to chill with a mocha frappe....mmmmm. Then we had to fill our tire with air. I sat in the car and sipped my frappe while hubby dear did his manly duty and made our chariot ready.
My hubby was determined to keep our destination a secret as long as possible and kept his mouth shut even in the face of true adversity! As soon as we headed east, I assumed we were headed to Philadelphia or somewhere around there. It doesn't get much more "east" than that unless you want to drive for a few hours and head northeast or southeast. Ok..I'm getting off track...We did end up in Philly. Brad reserved an executive suite at the Crowne Plaza Hotel.
Brad said that it actually wasn't as great as the website made it seem, but we did have a lovely room! The executive part meant that we had full access to a 24 hour snack bar on that floor. We did help ourselves to some goodies and then got bagels and fruit there in the morning for breakfast.
