Away To The Westin

On the Saturday before Valentine's day Derek came home and surprised me with beautiful flowers and a teddy bear! The flowers were so pretty - I think these are some of my favorites - I love hydrangeas.





He told me we were going somewhere, so I packed my bags and we started driving Saturday afternoon.

He surprised me by taking me to the Westin! It's a four star hotel, and very fancy. The lobby was just huge and so expensive looking, and the room had a flat screen TV. It was kind of fun to stay in such a nice place for once! We usually just go for the Holiday Inn when we take a trip, so this was a new experience.



We were on the fifth floor so the view was nice too.



We spent some time lazing around in the hot tub.



We went out to a nice Italian dinner and I got an Italian soda. It was so good.



We went and got a Dairy Queen, but at this point the camera died.



The next day we went to see a movie, and Derek let me by some pretty new stationary. Then we headed to the store, then came home. We spent Valentine's evening watching The Island, which I had never seen before.

I did get a Valentine's Day gift though! It's this beautiful heart-shaped diamond necklace. Derek spoils me.





Derek asked for a new tool box, so I got him a new one, plus a couple of movies that I cleverly hid inside! I know, I'm so smart.

It was just a nice relaxing getaway weekend. We didn't do anything too unique or crazy, just spent some time together - and that's what made it so relaxing. Initially I didn't want to spend the money to go somewhere this year, but I'm glad we did, because it was refreshing, and sometimes you just need to get away!
