I have a nice husband. He spoils me. This past weekend, he really went overboard, and I loved it.
He and a few of his buddies decided to treat their wives to a "girls night on the town" full of surprises. I came home from work and found an envelope full of clues.
The first clue led me to dinner with friends at one of those crazy Japanese restaurants:
We all decided to order fancy drinks, since our husbands said to order whatever we wanted. Tiffany, who is nine months pregnant, announced to the waitress, "I'm going to stick with water, since I now weigh ______ pounds." I will not publish her weight on a public blog, but I will say that I love that girl's honesty. She is hilarious.
The next clue led me to a chubby, hairy masseur at the New York Massage School. (No photo, thank goodness.) It was a little awkward to be rubbed down by Vince, but who doesn't like a good massage?
Finally, it was off to the movies--and then to a hotel for a night of girl talk.
I know, my husband is way too nice to me. But I really can't give Ryan all the credit...he is not a planner, and he freely admits that this entire event was planned by his friends. I am grateful, however, that he is always willing to jump on board with other people's good ideas, and he is generous when it comes to pampering his wife.
Life has been a little stressful lately with teaching and grading, responsibilities at church, fertility treatments, adoption drama, pedo residency applications...I was grateful for the fun diversion. And I am forever and always grateful for the ultimate fun diversion: Mr. Ry Guy.
I came home from the outing with friends exhausted (as you can imagine, we stayed up talking until the wee hours of the morning) and fell asleep on his shoulder. He studied while I snoozed.
I love that skinny guy.
