He SCORES!!!!!!

This weekend was my birthday! My hubby SCORED big time points! Friday morning he went to get a haircut and upon his return casually says the following:

Him: Why aren't you ready? (said with a very sheepish grin.) We have to leave in 20 minutes.

Me: What are you talking about?

Him: Oh, did I forget to tell you? (grin is even more sheepish.) We are leaving here in a few minutes. And oh, you won't be coming home tonight so you should pack an overnight bag.

Me: Are you serious? What should I pack? Where are we going? What are we doing? And why exactly couldn't you tell me before you went to get a haircut?

Him: You're wasting time. (smile no longer sheepish.....purely evil and delighted at the prospect of watching me run around chasing my tail trying to be ready for an overnighter in 20 minutes.)

In actuality, we left the house about 45 minutes later. Not too bad for someone who was still standing in their PJs when he made his announcement.

He took me to the Hyatt Manchester Hotel in San Diego. We had a corner room on the 21st floor. Out one window we overlooked Seaport Village, Coronado Island and the bay. Out the other window was the Coronado bridge and the lights of downtown. It was beautiful. We spent the afternoon walking around Seaport Village and the marina. I would post pictures, but we didn't think to bring a camera and the pictures my cell phone took don't do the view justice.

He took me out for a very nice crab dinner. Then it was back to the hotel for an after dinner drink and dessert in the Hyatt Bar on the 40th floor. The view was amazing and the dessert just as good. Layers and layers of white, milk and dark chocolate cake and frosting etc. I had a coffee with Bailey's and whipped cream. Yummy! Don't even want to know how many calories were in that evening!

In the morning we walked about three miles along the harbor. We had to because our stay included breakfast in one of the hotel restaurants for a breakfast buffet. The food was great and I ate like a little piggy. Make that a big piggy.

I had such a nice weekend and I felt very loved. He says that he planned it because he missed me while I was visiting my daughter, but he had really planned it long before that. Nice to know I was missed, but even better to know he just wanted to do something nice. It was a great birthday weekend.
