my husband is so dreamy.

he totally surprised me on valentine's weekend...

he waited until friday morning to tell me what we were doing that night. he said we would be eating dinner at benihana and to pack a bag because we weren't staying at home that night.

this was very exciting to think about all day. later on he told me we would be staying at the hotel we stayed at on our wedding night...the marriott by disneyland. so romantic!




so, we went to an amazing dinner, had a little mini vacation, and the next morning, we went to zen and got an hour-long full body couples massage!!!

it was such an awesome weekend with my favorite person in the world. i'm so lucky to be his wife :)
