What an incredible weekend! This weekend was just what the doctor ordered- excitement, romance, and adventure!!
David and I watched a movie and grilled at home with David's Valentine gift. Yummy!
My mom, granny, and I had a girls' day out. We ate out and shopped all day. I dropped some placemats off to be monogramed for our dining room, and found some great buys: high-heeled boot book ends, a vertical slender chest for my built-ins, and some damask napkins. We had such a great time chumming together.
David woke me up early and said that he had a surprise for me! He wouldn't tell me where we were going, only to get ready. After trying to guess several times, David told me to write down a few guesses, and to open the paper when we got there. If the guess was right, he would take me out shopping somewhere I wanted. I wrote down two guesses- a fun, new subdivision to go house hunting in and Terra Studios, which is where he proposed eight years ago. I really couldn't think of anywhere he could take me as a surprise. When he told Bichon to get in the car and go with us, I was puzzled. Where could we go that Bichon could also go? Well, when we dropped her off at my parents' house, I knew my mom was in on it. She asked David what time we would come home, and he said 10:00 p.m. Yikes!! I reminded David that I had morning duty at 7:30 a.m.(I was totally afraid he would haul me off to timbukto!) We drove, and drove, and drove.. We drove close to two hours... where were we going??? I was so excited when we ended up in Tulsa at the zoo! My guesses were wrong of course, but he took me shopping anyway (Yeah!!!). It was a beautiful day and all the animals were out and about. The Tulsa zoo recently had two baby chimps born, and they were just the cutest little things ever. We spend a good half hour with our faces pressed to the glass, cooing. David loved the polar bear. He pointed and grinned and tapped on the glass, squeezing in between toddlers and middle school kids. The tigers were soo vocal, roaring and pacing. They were incredible. Being at the zoo somehow restored my faith in this world and in humanity. Seeing new life made me feel that all is truly, truly well with the world- that God loves and cares for all creation. I am just a fruit cake over animals! I love them! After several hours at the zoo, David and I hit some stores and went out to eat. What a sweet time it was for us! We talked, and chatted, and played games in the car. We were like two high school kids on a road trip. Thank you, David! I know you read my blog, and I want you to know how sweet I think you are to plan a day all about the things I love. I appreciate you! : )
