staycation

Somehow in my brain, I thought the day off for Presidents day was next week. So imagine my delight this last week when I discovered that this was the long weekend! Suddenly I was having dreams of getting away for the weekend.

It was my turn to plan the Love day festivities, so I immediately began brainstorming. And though I really wanted an excuse to splurge on some fancy place to stay, my frugal side (& my house) we calling for me to be creative. So I dreamt up a stay-cation for the two of us. I led Bobby to believe that we were getting away, and I put him in the car, drove him around blindfolded, and arrived at the esteemed Porter Cottage.



the hanging hearts thanks to martha, came highly recommended by karla last year

Inside Bobby was provided a personalized brochure outlining a vacation worth of relaxation, yummy food and entertainment.

thanksgiving point lets you watch glass blowing and stained glass. You can even make your own flowers...


and more with movies, dinner and dancing.. but the best part was pretending like real life didn't exist around us and just being on vacation together.
