Weeks ago Rebecca sent me and Kaylynn an email asking if we could join her for a gathering that was very important to her on May 31st. I was originally going to run a race that day, but didn't... so this is what happened. I racked my brain trying to figure out what it could be that Rebecca wanted me to be there for? I was thinking...pregnant? visitors? Leading up to our outing she mentioned that we would be gone from 9am-12pm that day. It turned out to be very different. :)
At 9am on Saturday the 31st, Rebecca and Kaylynn showed up to pick me up and sat me down at the table. They had to tell me something! I was so nervous! What could it be? Then they told me I had 5 minutes to pack an overnight bag and that they were kidnapping me for the night!! I'm not sure that I've ever been surprised like that. So spur of the moment. Ed wasn't surprised at all since he obviously knew he'd be taking care of Sarah for the night. :)
So that was that, I quickly packed and we left...driving North...but I still had no idea what was ahead. When we parked Kaylynn and Rebecca revealed the next surprise. They proceeded to tell me that this whole trip was planned by Ed and gave me the card he wrote to explain.
The excitement and anticipation was so overwhelming my eyes teared up a little as I read the card Ed wrote. It basically said that Mothers don't get enough time away and that this little trip was well deserved by me. He told me to relax, have fun, not to worry, and that he and Sarah would get some great daddy daughter time. Not only this but there was a big wad of cash that fell out of the card and along with this the note explained that I was to spend ALL of the money shopping with the girls! If you know me I'm pretty thrifty. I don't buy large amounts of clothes EVER! This was a big deal!! That Ed of mine is so sneaky and sweet. He always plans the greatest surprises! So I took a deep breath and off we went to shop!
It didn't take long for me to get over the shock and start enjoying myself. It was great!! Rebecca and Kaylynn have great fashion sense so they were great shopping partners. I tried on SO MANY clothes and for once didn't look at every price tag before I tried it on. It was an elimination process. :)
Shopping was a great success, and Kaylynn and Rebecca got a lot of things too. Lunch was at Norstrom cafe, yummy... More shopping, some shoes I purchased that were meant for me named, Lindsay (close enough), dinner at an awesome steak house, and delicious ice cream!
The night didn't end there. We stayed at the Westin in San Fran and yes we jumped on the bed in our jammies. :)The breakfast the next morning was scrumptious!
Thank you Ed for the weekend away! You're the best! Thank you ladies for executing the plan well! I'll never forget it!! LOVE YOU!!
What did Ed and Sarah do? Daddy took her to the toy store to drive some mini cars and let her try french fries and hamburger for the first time. Classic! She loved it!!
