Nick and I don’t get out of town by ourselves much. The last time the two of us were away by ourselves was 2012. I remember it vividly we went to Vegas for 3 glorious days. So fast forward to 2 weeks ago when, I had just left the kids with their babysitter and headed to work. I call Nick as I am pulling out of the driveway (my normal routine) and he says he has a “surprise” for me. Now when someone says, “I have a surprise for you,” your typical reaction is to get all sorts of giddy with lots of anticipation. Mine wasn’t, and not because I am a horrible person, but Nick tends to over use the word “surprise.” It turns into, “Tiff! I have a surprise for you!” then here comes the giddy with lots of anticipation, right?? But then he’ll tell me my Amazon package (which I was already expecting) came in. Cue the let down music, wha wha whaaaaaaaaa. This happens quite often, so you can see why I wasn’t excited whatsoever. But then he tells me, we have a sitter set so the two of us can take a 3 day weekend to Coronado Island. I’m more than positive my next words were “Shut the Front Door!” Not gonna lie, that phrase may have been a bit different at the moment. Don’t judge me, I was so stoked!
