Surprise Rendezvous


Joe and I have two amazing friends (they are family too…but family does not necessarily mean that you are friends). Jim & Alisha wanted to bless us with an evening away. Sounds nice enough right? Well they didn’t stop there. They got us a suite on the top floor of the Hilton in Downstown St. Louis. It was a great room that included a giant jacuzzi tub. It doesn’t stop there, they filled the room with lots of fun stuff (chocolate, wine, candles, etc.). Plus gift certificates and reservations at Vin De Set and Bailey’s Chocolate Bar. And…that’s right, and…a pedicure and some foot lotion for me & a Starbuck’s gift certificate & book for Joe (so he could go next door and relax while I was getting my pedicure).

It was a great night. We were able to have a conversation that didn’t get interrupted by a 22 month old. It was extra special because they planned all this not knowing it was 9 years to the day of when Joe & I became an official couple. We had a chance to talk about our past but also what our future may be looking like. Anyway, it was really nice. We had no idea what our plans were for the evening until about 4:00 on Thursday. Needless to say, it was a huge surprise.

You may be asking where was Elle during all of this? Jim & Alisha stayed with her at our house. They spoiled her rotten, on Friday morning Alisha took her to preschool time at Bounce U. Elle has been talking about the slide there ever since. They both love Elle so much, she is blessed to have them in her life.

This all kinda makes you want to befriend Jim & Alisha doesn’t it??
