Hello and happy hump day! It’s been a little longer than I would have liked since my last post about our wonderful engagement in Las Vegas. Not only did I go back to work last week (yay), but my computer decided that my first day back was an appropriate time to bite the dust (boo) and it is still undergoing repair attempts (double boo). I am currently using Robert’s Macbook which is taking me an embarrassingly long time to master (creatures of habit such as myself do not learn new technology very quickly).
On top of starting school, my social calendar has kept me quite busy over the last week and a half. I had a girls night, celebrated my birthday with Robert’s family and celebrated one of my sweet friends turning 30 with a day on the water! Busy in the best way 🙂
Robert’s family always makes a big deal out of birthdays which is so much fun, even as an adult. Robert obviously picked up on this trend and always manages to make my birthdays extra special (except for that one year he took me to lunch at McDonalds and forgot to buy me a card, but we don’t talk about that). This year he REALLY went above and beyond.
I woke up Wednesday to messages on the bathroom mirror… ignore my 5 a.m. workout attire and awkward pose..it’s hard to take a picture of a mirror!
The mirror informed me that we would be going to dinner that night at Frankie Bones, a delicious restaurant on the island and it gave me my first hint about the birthday weekend getaway Robert had planned: Somewhere in Florida. Hmm. Once I came downstairs, I found a birthday note from Renly, only this time it was written on tinfoil from last nights dinner and sitting on top of the stove! That sweet dog of mine is so resourceful 🙂
After work, I came home to find flowers, several sweet cards from friends and family ( I LOVE mail!) and a box which Robert insisted I open before dinner.
Inside were three pictures which he told me were the remaining hints about our getaway.
A beach, a pool and a hotel…I still didn’t have a clue! We laughed about how ambiguous the pictures were and I opened what was left in the bottom of the box.
