Yesterday was my husband's 37th birthday. Back in September I won a huge mom prize which included a massage, carpet cleaning, Kroger gift card, tanning, and a facial. I decided to save some of it to make my hubby's day special.
I always volunteer at the girl's school on Mondays. I make copies and put fliers into folders. I made Matt come and help me since he doesn't usually get a chance to see how things work at school. He took his birthday off of work so we would have a afternoon without kids. We did our duty at the school and we were off on a magical adventure. Well, any afternoon alone should be called a magical adventure.
The first thing we did was went to a couple's massage. The radio station had given me enough for an hour for me and most of the money for Matt. So, of course I threw in some extras. I added a hot stone to mine, which I regretted because the guy spent more time playing with the rocks then pampering me. I had a great hot stone massage before so I thought I would try another. Even with the rocks fiasco I walked out of there feeling like I had been on a little slice of heaven.
Next, we went to Antonio's to use my next gift certificate. I had never been there so I was really excited. I loved it, minus the Broadway tunes all sung in Italian. I had the best mix of Moscato wine and Asti, yum! The food was a cheese lover, carbohydrate heaven. I also had my first gelato. Matt ended up getting chocolate which was really strong, but he enjoyed it. I had a bonbon. It was small and the perfect compliment to dinner.
Matt came home to play endless hours of video games. I took a snooze since I was in a food coma.
The one thing Matt asked the girls to do for his birthday was to get along. Which I was surprised, because for the most part they did. When they came home from school we all went to see Wreck it Ralph, which I thought was kind of cute. I'm a picky movie watcher.
Today, the girls didn't have school. So, I ended up getting to sleep for a full 10 hours. I must have needed it. They were still being sweet to each other. They were lying on Keira's floor watching movies and cuddling, a very rare moment indeed.
