It's been almost a week since I've blogged. I'm getting about as bad as my boyfriend. ;) Just kidding, Punky!
As the title states, I just spent the most wonderful weekend with my boyfriend. Our two year anniversary was last week, but it happened to be the same time as DDays. So he was going to be in Vermillion and he insisted that our anniversary was to be spent in Sioux Falls. I had no reason why, because he kept everything a secret. Ok. Here's the thing with me and secrets. I want them! I enjoy them! But only when I don't know in advance.
Example: Devon surprised me this past Valentine's Day by showing up with wine, roses and a song written for me! Perfect!! I loved it. The anticipation and anxiety wasn't there!
This time, I knew there was something up his sleeve... I just didn't know what and it was driving me CRAZY!!
For the weekend, he INSISTED that I wear a dress. So. Katie bought a new, pretty dress and wore it just for her Punky!
We went to supper at A Touch of Europe. I love the atmosphere of that place. It's downtown Sioux Falls and it's in the basement. It's just the coolest place ever!
After supper we started driving and he pulled out a card from his glove compartment and handed it to me. The card was sweet and inside the card were lessons to go ballroom dancing!! They have lessons every Friday night, but what do you know...of ALL nights, they weren't doing it on our date night. But no fear, we will definitely be using them sometime in the future! And I'm very excited about it!
We then went out to the casino! I was excited! Even though I was a loser, it's still always fun and entertaining. Plus, Devon came out ahead, so it was all good. He claimed he had to go to the bathroom. I decided to just sit and still pull some slots. I was getting creeped out by some weird guys staring at me, so I texted Devon to tell hi to hurry up and find me. He came and found me after being in the bathroom a very long time. He said he wanted to walk around the casino and hotel. We did. We went up the elevator and looked out. It was really pretty. We went back down and I told Devon that I needed to go to the bathroom. He said there was probably some in the hotel. I told him he was NUTS and I refused to walk down the hotel. All of a sudden he starts putting his card into random key slots and one magically opens. What s stinker! He didn't go to the bathroom at all. He surprised me with a beautiful, upgraded hotel room. And my bags were there and everything!
The next morning started rough. I found out one of my friends from Morningside and USD had died! It started my day off on a weird note. But my day got better, because I was with my love. We had lunch at the Pickel Barrel (yummy place! Highly recommend). We got back and watched some Arrested Development (which I got Devon hooked on! You're welcome, world). We went for a motorcycle ride. We rode all over Sioux Falls. We were going to get ice cream and ended up at the Sanford Wellness Center. Devon said there was ice cream there better than Peachwave...Gullible me, I believed him. We ended up going to see a Don....a massage therapist! The stinker got us a couple's massage!! Which was JUST what I needed!
We suppered at Carnaval (the Brazilian restaurant) and spent the rest of the evening watching Arrested Development.
The next morning we didn't have anything planned. I decided to stay an extra day. We went shopping and I got a new coat and some new movies. Life is good. We also got pumpkins to carve. We spent the afternoon carving pumpkins. Mine was a ghost and Devon's was a Guinness glass.
We had supper and watched the Vikings play at Texas Roadhouse and snuggled for the rest of the evening just talking about everything.
I am so lucky to be in love with such an amazing man who happens to be very romantic! Thank you Punky for such a perfect weekend. You may think things fell apart, but in my opinion it was JUST right!
I love you! <3
