D had said a few times we would be driving so I had envisioned a trip to Colorado or something like that. However, then he brought up all our camping equipment so I was thinking probably a little hiking adventure(not my idea of a romantic getaway but I figured I'd go with it because I knew his heart was in the right place) However, the morning we were supposed to leave I climbed in the car only to hear D saying..."Now we're going to be doing alot of driving this trip so just get used to being in the car because we're going on a little adventure up north.) At this point my head was about to explode, because I could take ONE long day in the car, and a couple nights camping, but thinking of unpacking and packing a tent every single night and being on the road all.day.long. does NOT a good vacation make!!! Sooooo in typical Amber fashion, I started crying. Yes big, round sad tears. I just couldn't hold it in any longer. D looked over and I could tell he didn't know what to do...he just kept assuring me we were going to have a great time just being together. So I tried to be strong and prepare for long hours in the car...just as I was really getting my head around the idea he took a sudden turn...toward the airport!!!!
This was my totally creepy smile moments after I found out we weren't driving anywhere!!!!(Sorry I just had to share this picture to show how ridiculously excited I was...I actually started screaming lol)
So, now the second surprise...where on earth were we going?????
Well...I think Tony Bennett sang it best when he said....
I left my
So, I was thrilled to say the least and we truly had the time of our lives. Our first stop...lunch!!Ha. Of course...a girl has to eat!So, we found a fun bar and grill that literally had more alcohol than I'd ever seen in my life in one place. I tried to capture it, but this picture didn't do it justice. It was crazy!
