So I mentioned in my last post that I had big plans for Valentimes, and that I'd share those plans on Monday. It is now Monday. Wanna know what we did? Great!
Without telling him until the absolute last minute, I whisked my husband away to a meal of divine proportions, followed by a stay in a gorgeous hotel. We were not even an hour from home, but I knew we both needed a little break. We love our children and are beyond blessed to have our roles as "Mommy" and "Daddy." For us, though, marriage comes first. And that relationship takes priority above any other. We were due for some couple time. Big time.
On Friday afternoon we dropped the girls off at my in-laws', which is where they'd rather be most of the time anyway. We headed south to The Carnegie Hotel, in Johnson City, TN.
This was our room...however our cheese tray was accompained by Bellinis. You know, peach puree and champagne? It's liquid ambrosia, indeed.
Wellington's is the restaurant located ajacent to The Carnegie. It. Is. Fabulous. Scott devoured fish and lobster, while I feasted on beef medallions and fried green tomatoes. Divine!
After dinner we strolled around the hotel for a while, then retired to our room. The end.
Yeah, like I'm telling y'all anything else! Well...I can reveal that rather than venture out to see the new Friday the 13th flick, we decided to enjoy a movie in the comfort of our room. Wanna know what we watched?
Yes, I spent Valentime's Eve with my husband and my boyfriend! Said Scott, "Honey, at least he's a badass." Well put, my dear. And I love you forever and ever, on Valentimes and always.
