The other week Joel told me he had a surprise weekend planned.He had gotten a baby sitter for the weekend - but he wouldn't give me any more details.When that man plans a secret,he keeps a secret!
Unlike me,who has to throw little hints here and there because as much as I love surprises, I love giving them too but have a hard time keeping a good surprise for long.
He finally had me so confused I didn't know what to think - was it for Valentines,was it not? Was it just the two of us, or not? Was it far away,was it close? What for clothes should I pack? Dressy or not dressy? It was finally to much!I made him look through the clothes I had packed to make sure they were ok! Later I found out he packed some for me behind my back! Told you he keeps a secret.
Anyhow...The day came when the surprise was finally revealed.He and his brothers rented a cabin in the smokies for the weekend. It was supposed to be a surprise for the wives but the northern wives knew before they ever got there.Me and Gina were surprised :)
It was a cute little cabin and we had a wonderful weekend,just hangin out and takin' it easy! It was a nice surprise! There was only 2 babies there, babies I didn't have to take care of so it felt really free :)
I'd say I have a great set of sister- in- laws and brother- in- laws.It was fun being with all of them again since we don't get to see each other that often.
I decided I'm going to do a special "heart shaped" Valentines supper here at home with the children.They always love that kind of stuff.It makes them and hubby happy so it makes me happy too :)
We had heart shaped chicken turnovers, boiled,smashed,seasoned potatoes ( I will post that recipe,they are super easy and yummy) corn, and cucumber salad. Then we topped off the meal with heart shaped brownies, icecream and chocolate covered strawberries.It's fun doing that kind of thing every now and then :)
Here's hoping all of you had an extra special Valentines (like I did) and wish for all of you that the love will continue all year long and for the rest of your lives! :)
And now before I bore anyone for any longer,I will sign out! Because I didn't have alot of time, I have a feeling this post turned out a little 'blah' sounding :)
And since I have something else on my mind (the reason I couldn't focus to much on this post),that includes a deal with hubby, I'd better run and get my part of the deal done for the day :)
Much love to all ~ Staci
