Love Hangover -

I've got the sweetest hangover... that I don't want to get over!!!!


So the vacationing was fun... saw some folks, did a lot of relaxing, even more eating.... took a few pictures......


But the best part was coming home. plain and simple.. I missed Troy, I missed my bed... I missed everything. And this is a good thing, Martha... cause every now and then you need a dose of appreciation for the things you have.

But the best part was what happened the day AFTER I got home.


I was going about the usual coming-back-after-being-gone-two-weeks stuff.... you know... laundry, errands, food shopping... all that fun stuff.


So troy calls me when I'm in Target and tells me I MUST come to his office before I go food shopping. Do not pass go.. go directly to jail... the whole nine. So naturally this put me in a fanulous mood (NOT!!!!) cause it was hot as balls out, Rhena was getting ready for her nap, and troy wanted me to leave the parking lot I was in, to go to his work just to come back to the same damn parking lot so I could start food shopping.

but FINE..... I went.


and lemmee tell you.... I'm glad I did.


He comes outside with this bag of 'stuff'.... a series of notes and giftcards for Anne Taylor, Victoria's Secret, and a wine store.... and proceeds to tell me to get somethin' purty, cause we were going on a date that night, and yes... someone would be watching Rhena.

*sigh*


I love that guy....


the night was simply wonderful. we had dinner..... we had drinks.... we played the stereo in the car just a little too loud on the way home.

We were only gone for about 2 hours... maybe a little more... but what a difference those 2 hours out can do. I could have done without the shopping spree... though TRUST ME... I'm not complaining!!!!.....

But just that dinner without worrying about anything except whether or not I had enough room for dessert was all I needed to remember how much I love my husband.... and how much I really like us as a couple!!!


and the best part is that we promised to do it again. Yeah... I think he's a keeper!

I LOVE the photos!! The black and white closeup of Rhena is gorgeous - and the 2 of you are beautiful together standing near the river - and her smile standing in the water. What great pics! The tubing looks SO fun - I've never done that... I know what you mean about those night's out with Hubby. All of us need to do that every once in awhile. Loved your post and your new template is much prettier! :)

Awwww! How sweet! Glad you have such a great hubby! We all deserve one. On most occasions I think I found mine. It's just those little times that I wonder what the heck I was thinking of....like when he decides it would be fun to pass gas in the isle that I am in and walk away when someone else walks up, so it looks like it was me who stunk up the place! Gotta love them though, don't ya? :)

P.S. Got your message over at my place....I didn't mean to sound so bitchy! I was just teasing you! I hope you know that!

Angela said...

Definitely a keeper! I am so glad that you are back, and I love the new look!

way to go troy! well done. brad and i went out twice in the last three weeks and i feel like a new woman-it really does make a difference to have a LITTLE time not sitting on the floor or following crouched over a crawling babe! so glad you are back momma!

Maria said...

Troy sounds like a wonderful guy. I was lucky enough to get one of those too!

Glad you had a good trip and made it home safely. Love the pics!

You two give me hope! Um, I'm going to steal a few moves from your hubby, hope you don't mind ;)

Wow, quite the new blog look and great pics. Looks like you had a good weekend.

Susie said...

Beyond sweet! Where's the pick of you in your cutey new outfit? I'll be back soon.

Just taking some time to enjoy and play with the boy. Hard to do the playing with the laptop :)

That is so awesome. Keep him. DH is taking me out on Saturday for my birthday. Dinner, a shopping spree at Sephora (because you can't have enough Philosophy shower gels), and a quiet night w/o the girls. The trade off? The girls are staying w/the MIL! ACK!

greekchickie said...

Awww! How beautiful! You are so blessed with that wonderful man.

Well, I mean, sometimes you do I'm sure, but you know what I mean.

You really lost me right when you said I'm not your bitch. I thought I was. WTF??

Did you buy a piece of me? Can I say You wanna piece of me? I don't have so much to go around. hahahahahahaha

Date night. Necessary. Props to Troy! Tell Rhena I said Chill baby!
