So we had our date night the next evening. Tim usually plans our date nights so I really just get things together for the babysitter and have a fun evening planned. It's a great set up. ;) So Tim told me the plan was bowling and dinner. That sounded great to me. Any evening out on the town with my man is a treat so I was just excited to be with him. As we are driving to the bowling alley he informs me we are going to a "new bowling alley". Once again, he planned the evening so I don't have a worry in the world and not concerned where we are driving. So we pull up to a parking lot and he parks in front of a massage place. Tim says, "That's weird... my GPS said there is a bowling alley here. I guess we can just go in here instead." At this point I am so confused! I thought why would we go in here if there is no bowling. These were actually the words I was saying to Tim. But he proceeded to go inside the massage place. He told the lady, "Do you guys have availability for a couple's massage?" She said "yes" and was a little confused. Tim said, "wow, that's great! We'll do a couple's massage." The lady was so confused, she said, "Sir, you made reservations." Hilarious! He was trying to keep playing along for me but the lady was so confused. I was blown away! So sweet. It's always been in my bucket list to do a couple's massage.... check! I was so surprised. Before we left our house, I was so concerned I did not forget my socks to go bowling, yet we never made it there! ;) The massage was AMAZING and perfect after holding a baby all day.
Next we headed to dinner. As we were turning near the restaurant, he said we have one more stop. I thought, what could it be? He pulls into a hotel parking lot. He reserved us a room away for the night! He somehow packed my bag and everything I needed!! And arranged for the babysitter to stay over night! What a man!! As I was getting ready before we left, I could not find my deodorant... now I know why! We changed our clothes into "non bowling" attire and headed to a fabulous dinner with great conversation and fabulous wine!
We had a relaxing evening, uninterrupted sleep (no babies waking us up at night!) and I even slept in until 7am. Loved it! Breakfast was amazing and then we headed home.
The entire evening I said, "This is the perfect evening" and it truly was. I am thankful for my thoughtful man who went over and beyond this year for Valentine's Day and did all of this for me. So sweet!! I know he loves me so well daily and this was beyond . Locking the memory in!!
