After the pedis, Freddy and I went shopping for...My new Calphalon stainless steel pots and pans. You know you are officially grown up when you ask for pots and pans for your birthday!
After the shopping, Freddy and I went to Massage Envy and got back massages - in separate rooms. I've been surveying people about this. I ask them if they would prefer single rooms or a couples room if they were going with their significant other to get massages. While my research isn't complete, I found that most - not all - married couples prefer separate rooms while unmarried couples would prefer the couples room. Give them time, I say. Give them time.
I told Freddy before we went in that all I wanted was to get a non-talking massage therapist. I jinxed myself. I got the new guy, second day on the job, who talked the entire time. I tried to give him small clues that I didn't want to talk - like one-word answers, hmmms, uh-huhs, etc. Yet, somehow he did not catch on and he told me EVERYTHING about himself. The only good thing was that I guess he liked me because he gave me an extra 15 minutes for free!
After massages, we went to dinner - just the two of us. I love going to dinner with my husband! I love spending time with him period. He is an amazing husband, my perfect match. (Awwwwww...)
After dinner, I opted out of dessert and we went home to spend the rest of the evening relaxing on the couch and hanging out with Lola.
What a great birthday!
