My husband was off work on Friday and I worked half a day so we decided to celebrate Valentine's day a day early. We decided (actually I guess I decided) a month ago that we would exchange love letters for Valentine's day. So I had no expectations for the day. I thought we would grab some lunch, do a little shopping, and just hang out.
I called him right before I was ready to leave to see if he wanted to go out for lunch. He was very blah and decided that we should save money at eat lunch at home. I was a bit bummed, but could understand the rationale. So I headed home. When I walked in the door, I could immediately tell that the house had been cleaned. Wow, that's a nice surprise.
We ate lunch and ran a couple of errands. As we were heading home, my husband turned the wrong way. Hmmmm. He said we were going to check something out. Ok, so he has something planned. We pulled up to a spa. Yep. That's right. He had booked a couple's massage. I was totally surprised and luckily had shaved my legs that morning.
Earlier he had dropped off roses and a card to the spa so they were waiting for me when we went into the room. He later told me that he put the arrangement together. The vase was one from home. He had collected some plants from the yard and then he bought the roses. How sweet. It gets better. If that is even possible. I open the card and it says "P.S. We have a babysitter tonight." There was also a two page love letter in there too. Man, I felt completely spoiled.
His parents came over to watch the kids. We ate dinner at a Mexican restaurant and drank some margaritas. It was the most perfect Valentine's day.
