SO... most of you know that I have one of the greatest husbands in the world. Not only is he a great husband and father, but he actually cleans the kitchen and does the laundry! Well, he topped himself this weekend. Last week he told me that he had a special surprise for me Friday night....he booked a hotel room for me and ONLY me at the new Holiday Inn & Suites, which happens to be the hotel that Johnny's is in.
Oh my goodness, a whole evening to myself with no kids or husband. An absolute dream come true for a working mother!!
So...Friday my boss let me off early (1:00) and I was able to go pick up a few new books and head to the hotel to check in for the night. It was heavenly! The suite was perfect. I had a living room, nice size bathroom, kitchenette and bedroom with a big comfy bed that would be mine all night. Drew surprised me with stocking the fridge with some pop, water and munchies for the night. I was all set. Then at 7:00, he personally delivered dinner to me. A nice steak with asparagus and sweet potato fries. It was perfect! Then he brought me back chocolate covered strawberries and left me to my own for the rest of the night. Which included getting through half of my new book and watching a couple of movies. I fell asleep and slept uninterrupted for 9 whole hours. It was pure heaven!
On Saturday, I took my time getting ready and checked out at noon. I headed home to see my babes, because I did miss them a little bit and had another surprise, as Drew had the whole weekend off! It was great to have some alone time to start off the weekend and then to have some much needed family time.
So...all of you husbands out there (as I am sure there are SO many that read my blog) ;o), if you want the perfect gift for your wife...a hotel room to herself may be it!
