This past weekend Nate surprised me with a little babymoon getaway, which means of course that he is a) the sweetest husband ever, b) very very sneaky with his surprises, and c) awesome in every way possible.
He booked us a room at The Inverness Hotel & Conference Center in Englewood, CO. It was far enough away from home to be considered a trip, but still close enough that staying one night was an easy feat. Besides, since I could *technically* go into labor at any point in time we needed to be close-ish to the hospital. Just in case!
We got there Friday night and enjoyed the best burger I think we’ve ever had at one of the hotel restaurants, then promptly got to our room and passed out on the bed to the tune of an Old School marathon on TV. We slept in (gotta get that rest while we can, right?!) and laid in bed and talked. Now here’s where I have to interject something: talking to my husband is one of my favorite things ever. If I have the chance to lay in bed with no responsibilities, snuggle with him and talk about our lives then I’m a happy girl. I was in heaven 🙂
Anyway, we spent the rest of the morning relaxing and eating breakfast, then around noon headed over to Ikea for a couple of last-minute baby things. We did some maternity photos (I’ll share those later!) and just generally spent the day together, which was perfection. Just goes to show that while a full-on vacation is great, spending time together for a little weekend getaway doesn’t have to be extravagant. In fact, I’d say the less extravagant the better…I had the best time!
