Our anniversary is Friday. We will be married for 33 years! Where did the time go?
Every year we go away for at least a night to celebrate. This year we went mid week as it worked well with our son's schedule (and picking him up from work) and also the hotels are less expensive during the week.
We only went to Oshkosh which is about two hours from here. We stopped for a late lunch. To work off our meal and after we checked in at the hotel, we went shopping at the Outlet Mall. We both found many things and started our Christmas shopping!
We had a room with a large Jacuzzi. I still wasn't ready to use it. So, we drove around and went out to dinner at a restaurant that was recommended to us. The French Onion soup was so good, our entrees were so-so. Still, the companionship and décor of the restaurant was very nice. I took home half of my meal. ( I should have gotten the pasta and the heck with Weight Watchers that night!).
I was again, just too full to sit in that Jacuzzi! Watched TV like the old couple that we are and fell asleep, exhausted from shopping and over eating!
The next morning, like clockwork, I woke up all bright eyed and bushy tailed!
The Jacuzzi calls my name! (Hey, I didn't pay extra for the room for it to stay empty!). I'm sure our neighbors didn't appreciate the water running at 6 am, but I couldn't wait! Ahhhh! Relaxation after a not so good night's sleep.
Breakfast was provided at the hotel. Who is hungry? We are!
We then drove around some more. Went to Oaks Candy Store. It was recommended by a friend and of course, I had to see if it was as good as she said. Our local store still has them beat in chocolate and décor. However, if you are in Oshkosh, don't pass this up.
|Is that all the chocolate you want?|
A little more shopping. I decided to go back and buy a scarf that I just loved and goes with three of my sweaters. I will learn how to wear a scarf! If I didn't get it, I knew I would regret it. Jim was all excited cause he bought a "Lint Lizard," a gizmo that helps you to clean the dryer vent!
We met with my niece and her husband and had a very nice lunch at a Mexican Restaurant. I discovered I do not like Margaritas! (Tequila...icky!). Lunch was so enjoyable and loved visiting without distractions of kids running around. I remember when we were that age. What happened?
Oh, I am so tired....time to go home!
