Ry rocked our first Married Valentines Day.
I'll spill all the dirty details. Actually no but here's the story. I get home from teaching school all tired and frustrated. Ryley tells me to get dressed up and pack a bag overnight. Yea! I have no idea what's going on, but I get ready and pack the thinks he tells me I'll need. We get in the car and he blind folds me. Pretty sure I got a million weird looks while we were driving. Too bad we got stuck in traffic and so Ry let me take off the blind fold so I wouldn't look crazy for an hour plus. Still had no idea where we were going.
We pull up at a theater. This may seem small, but we haven't gone to an expensive show since we've been married. Too expensive for newly weds for sure! We get tickets for When In Rome which I had been wanting to see every since we had looked up the preview. The movie was super cute and it was fun to be in a nice theater. So we got there a smidge late and missed the very first of the movie. So after it was over we decided to wait around and watch the first part that we missed. After we saw what we missed we left the movie. This is where we get toBonus #1. While we were walking out an usher asked if we walked out of our movie. We told him we had a reservation to get to. So he says "Then take these." and pulls out 2 free movie passes. Score! So now we can go back for free and watch another movie! Yea!
Next Ryley pulls us up in front of Tucanos which is a Brazilian restaurant with the most delicious meats. There is a ginormous salad bar you can help yourself to, and while you're eating servers some around with skewers of different kinds of meat and offer you slices. There are a million different kinds of meats and they just keep bringing it until you realize that if you eat one more bite you might throw up. We got the Valentine's Day Special which included a red table cloth, a beautiful rose, rib eye steak, shrimp, and 2 chocolate covered strawberries. Mmm so delicious. But seriously we both almost threw up walking to our car.
Next Ry drives us to a beautiful Marriot. This hotel was beautiful. Nicest I've stayed in. While we were checking in Ry and I spied Danny Glover. Ryley recognized him and pointed it out to me since I'm always oblivious. Danny Glover has played in tons of movies. He was the president in 2012 and I knew him from Lethal Weapon. Anyways, who thought we would see someone famous in a hotel in Provo ever?
We had some troubles checking in since their system was down. We sat there for 30-40 minutes. Not too big of a deal since I was still sick from dinner. We finally got our keys and went into our room. We had a door that let us out onto the courtyard roof and decided to take a look. Bad idea. Our key to our room wouldn't work. We were locked out. We went to the front desk. Long story short after trying a million things, calling the electrician out of bed to come help and waiting another 40 minutes we got in our room. Here comes Bonus #2... Because of all the trouble we got our room for free plus two free tickets to an amazing breakfast. I Love breakfast food so was super stoked. We had a wonderful night in our hotel. I don't know why it's so fun sleeping somewhere besides your house, but it just is. Plus the bed had the most fluffy white duvet with huge fluffy pillows and the mattress was unbelievably comfy!
The next morning we woke up and ate a Delicious breakfast. Weird. No one else was wearing pjs but us. I was bare foot and all which I thought was normal. Apparently this was a little bit of a nicer breakfast. Oh well. We ate waffles with fruit and whipped cream, sausage, bacon, eggs, hash browns, fresh fruit and yogert, my most favoritest granola ever, hot chocolate with whipped cream + cinnamon, and orange juice! So stinken good!
This is just a little close up of my fav granola. (it's the kind they put in acie bowls in Hawaii)
After breakfast we went hot tubbing and swimming. *side note- pretty happy with the beginning showings of our p90x ab workouts*
Hot tub. Super hot. Pool. Refreshing. All in all very relaxing.
Last we went upstairs, clean up, packed up, and went for a stroll on the courtyard on our roof.
The entire trip was Romantic, Relaxing, Rejuvenating, and a complete Party
Once again Ryley rocks my world
