What do you do when you're stressed? What do you do when it is cold and miserable outside? Do you dream of warmer climates and relaxation? I DO! I DO!
I'm not going to go into detail about how I'm SO not into winter this year, or how the snow is just obnoxious, or about how we have winds like the city of Chicago, or how the lack of daylight is not making me CrazyLo but BitchyLo. No, I wouldn't dare fill a blog post with that kind of negativity.
What I will do is show you the birthday trip I've planned for myself. Last year, I had a great birthday until 10PM hit. It was at this unfortunate hour that everyone was drunk but me and bailing to go home and pass out. Pschh..whimps. :) That resulted in me being a cry baby who felt the birthday was a flop. Then I realized I'm not 21 and maybe I shouldn't be planning a drunk fest every year for my birthday anymore. So, without further ado.
This year we'll be visiting Eureka Springs, AR. I've heard so many great things about this town. Full of old buildings, cobblestone streets, shopping, spas, restaurants, a huge Jesus statue, and beautiful springs; this town will be a great low-key couples vacation. Everyone I've spoken with told me how we had to find a cute bed and breakfast and make a romantic weekend of it. Well, bed and breakfasts are great and all, but I'm not into staying in a room that looks like grandma's house. No floral wallpaper or creepy dolls in this girl's room. I want something relaxing, romantic and sleek. BUT, I want to be spoiled by the beautiful nature and scenery found in the Ozarks.
And what did my google stumble across?
That, my friends, is a treehouse. But don't you dare think I'm going to be camping in any way. I'll do enough of that during truck show season.
This is a view of the inside. Specifically, this is the Santa Fe room.
Ahh...and best of all a jacuzzi.
All of these pictures and room details can be found here.
My sweet husband has allowed me to book 3 nights at this beautiful place where we will hopefully get some massages, shopping, eating, hiking and bike riding in. Oh, and bubble baths with wine. This is a requirement. I'm so excited and so happy I have something to look forward to. And what can be better than spending a romantic weekend with my best friend in the entire world? *gush*
