bobby, meet the spa...

you may know me and my tendency to struggle sitting still. i'm a mover and a shaker-but maybe not the skilled dancing kind...- i like active adventures and exploring pretty places.

further evidence i've grown a little bit more like the husband was our anniversary celebration activities. you see, this year was my turn. i started out with grand ideas of forgetting all worries of budget and responsibility and taking a last child-free excursion. then downgraded to local adventures. but really, when i thought about it, all i wanted was time. time together. chill time at that. bobby what have you done to me?

so the plotting began. and i had the perfect chill activity in mind. bobby and i were going to go to the spa. you see, husband of mine has a particular love for getting his back scratched. how could he not love the combined, scratch- read exfoliate- massage lovliness? And we happen to have a delightful spa school in the neighborhood that makes it even more user friendly for us somewhat poor- or saving for bebe- folks.

we stole a few hours away from work and school in the middle of the day, and i sprung the news on him right before we left. he didn't need to stew on it too long for fear of freaking himself out with false images of pedicures and painted nails. and off we went a-pampering! bobby getting the ultimate back scratch, and myself a lovely facial, seems i have a slight bump preventing me from laying on the stomach region...

image stolen from the dating days... i didn't actually sneak a camera into the spa. actually didn't even think twice about taking pictures all the day long...

it was a lovely time with the husband. we had lunch. we enjoyed spending some daylight hours together. he kept commenting how nice it was to see the sun. poor sad dungeons and fluorescent lighting at byu...

we topped the day off with an evening p.f. changs picnic on the bed. it was glorious. when the lights were out and we were drifting off to sleep, he mumbled something about doing this again tomorrow... i think that means he liked it...
