Surprise!

As you well know, I have the sweetest, most romantical Husband in the world.

Now that you've been reminded, let me tell you what he did for me this weekend. Please realize you must have a strong constitution level for mushiness.

Husband and I have been sick and somewhat out of sorts for the past month, roughly. The out of sorts part is due to the fact that we were in dire need of a rest. As most of you know, Husband is a contract worker which means he doesn't get paid if he doesn't work- This means no vacation. Yes, ever. Therefore we desperately needed some variation on a vacation.

Sweet wonderful man that he is, surprised (Yes, I -- me, the planner--had absolutely no idea where we were going!) me with a weekend getaway to the beach! Awww... I know, and since it is the off season, he got a tremendous deal on an oceanfront room! Woohoo! We took some beautiful pictures of the ocean and I can't wait to look at them again!

Day One we went to the Wright Brothers Museum since Husband had never been to see it and we both enjoy history. If you ever go there, be sure you are in the best shape of your life or you just might want to die walking up to the monument on the hill.

Day Two we drove and ferried up and down the Outer Banks to see the lighthouses, which neither of us had ever done before. It was fun and I couldn't remember ever being on a ferry before! If you ever do the lighthouse driving thing on the Outer Banks, Ocracoke Island lighthouse-- not so impressive by the time you find it. We packed a picnic lunch and enjoyed it at Cape Hatteras. Very romantical, I know.

All in all, we had a fun relaxing time just being together, and after all, isn't that the point of a vacation anyway? Thank you Husband for a great weekend!
