Joe and I took a couple days and went to Big City. It was our late 5th anniversary celebration. Bethany and Joseph stayed with my mom and Jenna came with us. When Joe and I get away we have so much fun. Our idea of a good time together usually includes shopping, eating yummy food, Starbucks and a Hyatt Place. Plenty glamorous for us and definitely a splurge!!We leisurely looked around a bookstore and enjoyed our frappachino's. It is really weird not being in a hurry. I caught myself several times getting ready to tell Joe to "come on." Then I'd realize, we didn't have to be anywhere! The same when we ate out. I just about gulped all my food down in my normal fashion, only to remind myself to SLOW down.
We went to see the movie Fireproof in the theater. It was an awesome movie. So much better than we expected. Everyone has to see it. Joe and I both were very impressed and think it is incredible. Jenna was really good while we were there. She did a little of everything, slept, ate, and played. I was glad I didn't miss any of the movie because of her. This was her second movie in the theater. She also "saw" Handcock.
Our hotel was perfect. We love staying at Hyatt Place. I like the pretty decor and the poka dot key cards. Joe likes the 42" flat screen TV. We both love the bed. They have the best beds. You know you can buy their mattress? It's only $1,550.00!! :) Jenna was happy to play on the bed. She had been in her carseat or sling most of the day.
We ate at Buca di Beppo's finally. Our friend Chris has been singing the praises of that restraunt forever. It is a really funny place to eat. The decor is CRAZY!! I laughed and laughed. These pictures do not do it justice. On the way to be seated, we were led through the kitchen! It is an italian restraunt. There are Christmas lights on the walls and pictures of italian families, along with all kinds of knick knacks. It was a fun place to eat and the food was really good.
It was a great little trip. I have an amazing husband! I love spending time with him. He makes me happy. We are so blessed to be able to get away and have fun. Bethany and Joseph had a great time at Mamma and Papaw's. We don't know what we would do or how we would make it without them.
