About a month ago, I wrote about how I tried to do this nice night out for my hubby and me for his birthday (http://tcyarbs-talkingtomyself.blogspot.com/2009/03/best-of-intentions.html) and I totally screwed it up. This past weekend, my husband planned a very nice outing-which we referred to as a sleepover to our kids-for my birthday. And it was perfect. I know it isn't a competition, but I must concede. He really nailed it.
First, I had a full day of spa treatments -what a slice of HEAVEN! Message, manicure, pedicure, steam room, on and on. It was wonderful. Then, I get to my beautiful room in the gorgeous, historic Oxford hotel to find my handsome husband waiting for me with a martini. Then he whisked us both off to dinner at Morton's, where we had an excellent dinner. Afterward, we headed to the Cruise room, which is a hip little bar just inside the Oxford hotel. It was the first bar to open in Denver after prohibition. The bartender even shared some ghost stories with us-which I just LOVED! Then we just hit the elevator button to our room-which was oh so nice. We got to sleep in! The next morning, we enjoyed a delicious brunch-and then headed home to celebrate Easter with our family.
What a great night!
