Well my husband has really outdone himself this time and I don't know what is to come.
It was our wedding anniversary in September and DH decided we would celebrate with a weekend away....without Ellyse. Because of the night marking job I was doing at the time and school holidays we delayed it and are heading off this weekend. Everything is a suprise to me. I know the location, I guessed, but apart from that I have no idea. DH is great at keeping secrets, and I have had to resist the temptation to look at the credit card statements and our hotmail account. I don't want to spoil the suprise so up until now I have not ventured there. As the weekend approaches it is getting difficult though and I just want to know what we are doing!
Last Friday night I went out with some friends to the movies and coffee. When I got home there was an envelope with my name on it on the bench for me. Inside was a letter outlining my mission, which was to take the large amount of money and spoil myself on a shopping spree. I was breathless. DH has been doing some private jobs and has been stashing the money away. He has been working so hard for us to enjoy this weekend away.
So today my great friend H and I went shopping. We spent most of the day spending DH's hard earned money. It was so much fun. I had a lot of money to spend, more than I have ever spent in one shopping trip in my life, but somehow it didn't seem enough. You know when you have something you always want more! In saying that though I did really well for my money and am so happy with everything I got. I am a pretty bad shopper, I often get frustrated as I don't have a design bone in me and also as I have mentioned before I am quite tight with our money, so to be let loose with this money was very different for me.
Needless to say my summer wardrobe is sorted!
I love my husband so much, not just for the material things he provides for me but for his every thought and action. He is always out to make me feel great and loves to suprise me. I love the way he loves me. Right now he is doing the washing up I was supposed to do after dinner, he was happy for me to get my thoughts down.
I am so looking froward to this weekend, to connect with DH, to have fun, to wear my new clothes, and to seeing Ellyse when we get home! I am going to miss her a lot.
So look out for Monday's entry!
