    Well I had the nicest surprise this weekend.
    FI made me cancel my hair appointment Saturday because he said it would be the first nice weekend we'd have together...maybe we'd go riding...whatever...so I said fine.
    then we see the weather, and it's supposed to poor, but he said we'd go see Alice in Wonderland....and not to re make the appointment.

    So we end up sleeping in,dressed for the gym, so sloppy...very little makeup and then just kind of shopping around...he's telling me how he's so happy to spend time with me - he's helping me pick out things for my centerpieces...then we go to a hardware store...YAWN
    then he says he wants to go to a tool store...I can wait in the car...fine by me...i took a little nap...I figured we would head to the gym after.

    so if you haven't heard about what's been going on in NJ, we had a NorEaster yesterday, which is basically a hurricane in the winter....rain, 55 mph winds...

    He gets back to the car and tells me we have to stop at our friends house...i say ok...we get there and he asks me if I'm coming in, i say of course...

    We go in and my friend hands me a paper that says,
    Welcome to your spa day

    and I'm looking at it like what is this?
    so she pushes me towards the dining room
    and there are my friends, my sister and my mom and FMIL

    They made me a spa day shower!

    i was floored.

    I never expected a shower of any kind, because a) it's my second wedding and B) having a DW, I didn't want anyone to go any more out of their way for me.

    so they had a massage therapist, a manicurist, a make up artist and a hair stylist there to give anyone whatever they want.

    Unfortunately, we lost power about halfway through my massage!!!! the power is still out in much of NJ.

    so I still managed to get my massage, some pretty nail art, and my make up done before it got too dark.

    they also told me they had a special caterer coming....

    so when the caterer got there I went to the door, and it was my FI!!!!
    Right after he dropped me off he went home and started cooking!

    I am still so shocked and filled with happiness at how much effort and planning went into this by my friends. All of them travelled over an hour in a huge storm to get to this, and be there for me.

    i am so lucky!
    i will have pictures soon, i promise.
