so I'm well aware that I didn't post at all last week - not even our Date Night
[especially our Date Night]
and the reason is - our Date Night last week was really a Date Weekend because it was The Date of the Year, which really means it was our Anniversary
cuz My Man's buddy from school is a manager at a swanky resort, and hooked us up with three days there for free
and we basically had the time of our lives
and lived like kings
and drank pretty fruity drinks by the side of the pool
and stayed in a suite with two balconies and fluffy bathrobes and a double-headed shower and a 100000000000 thread-count comforter
and we slept like kings
and we went to the spa
and we got massages and facials
and primped like kings
and we went to a five-star restaurant
and ate edible art that we couldn't really pronounce but was beyond delicious and just thinking about it makes my mouth water and my eyes roll back in my head
so we ate like kings
and then we went horseback riding
[and my butt hurt for three days]
but it was beautiful
and we didn't really ride like kings, but it was still fun
and everything was so unbelievably idyllic and perfect and I took a ton of pictures and had composed all these breathtaking descriptions for the blog and then My Man's friend said I couldn't blog about the fact that it was free.
and i died.
because if I DIDN'T blog about the Free Aspect of our kingly weekend, I fear I would come across as this stuck-up-hoity-toity-rich-lady-who-goes-to-the-spa-and-eats-at-five-star-restaurants-like-it's-no-big-deal-kinda-chick. Not that there's anything WRONG with being a stuck-up-hoity-toity-rich-lady-who-goes-to-the-spa-and-eats-at-five-star-restaurants-like-it's-no-big-deal-kinda-chick. I'm sure they're perfectly nice. But I'm not that chick. And I don't want to come across as that chick. Because I have a complex.
so then I didn't want to write anything at all, until My Man pointed out I could just NOT MENTION THE NAME OF THE HOTEL, and that was a brilliant idea, but my buzz was already killed and our weekend was magical and that's the end.
