Kevin and I celebrated our three year anniversary last Tuesday (May 24th) - CHEERS! It's been such a wonderful three years and I am so grateful for having found the love of my life. We had such a wonderful day celebrating - I'm such a lucky girl!
Kevin planned an amazing day and it was so nice to get to spend some quality time together. Since our anniversary was on a Tuesday and Kevin needed to get a few things done at the office, he sent me off to the spa while he did some work. What a great husband! At 11am, after dropping R off at his grandparents, I checked in to Bliss Spa for my "blissage" and it was amazing! After that I had a waxing treatment done and I have to agree with D Magazine - Best Waxing in Dallas. It seriously was painless - I have no idea how they do it!
My last appointment was for a triple oxygen facial. The reviews were great and my face needed some help! For some reason I am the only 28-year old I know that breakouts like a teenager! I haven't had the best luck with facials - I got my first one when I was 18 and it was horrible. It was the most painful thing I ever experienced and the lady actually tried to remove a mole thinking it was a blackhead. So since then I have been a little gun-shy about the whole facial thing. No need to worry. It was AMAZING. I basically explained my issues with my face to the lady and she changed my facial to a basic one and we added the alpha beta peel chemical peel. At first I was terrified but she assured me that I would not leave looking like Samantha from Sex in the City. My face has completely cleared up and I didn't have to go through one of those "it gets worse before it gets better' phases. like I said. Amazing.
Ok so enough about me and my time alone - this was our anniversary! So Kevin left work around 2pm and headed up to the W so we could lounge poolside and have a few drinks. I got out there first and there was no one. There was no one and no sun. boo. On top of that the entire layout of the area was horrible. I am pretty sure they will never hire that architect again. The pool is on the 16th floor and it is like sitting in a wind tunnel!!! You really can't get any sun either unless you are actually in the pool. We sat up there and debated on whether we should stick it out or head out. In the end we decided to pack it up and head out. We ended up patio-side at Meddlesome Moth. In the end it really didn't matter where we were, we had a great time chit chatting away with a couple of drinks and a cheese plate! Sometimes I forget how nice it is for us to get away and have a conversation without sweet little R.
At about 4:30 we headed to pick up little R from grandma and grandpas. I wanted to nurse him before we went out for dinner so I didn't have to pump....I will do anything in order not to pump. We got showered and ready to go out, I fed him and then grandma and grandpa came over to watch him again (have I mentioned how much they rock!) Kevin and I went to dinner at a restaurant in Deep Ellum called Local. We had such an amazing time at dinner and the food was awesome! We didn't even realize the crazy weather that was going on outside until we checked our phones and each had crazy text messages from family and friends! Kevin's dad had texted "where is the emergency radio" and my neighbor wrote "are y'all going to take cover?" We were so confused! I guess the tornado sirens were going off and everyone was taking cover - and we were out wining and dining. Thankfully nothing major happened and everyone was safe. We got home a little after 9:30 and everything was just fine.
It's crazy to think that when I met Kevin back in 2001 that this is our "in 10 years". If you would have told me that back then I would have been just as happy and giddy as I am now. Kevin is such an amazing husband and the best daddy anyone could ever ask for. Ryan and I are so lucky!!!
