The Retreat

Does your husband do this? I will suggest something which he will shoot down. At some point in the future, he has the same idea but it is now brilliant. Why do men do that? Not that I'm really complaining too much. In this instance, I am beyond thrilled he has "come up" with this idea.

He has been working a lot lately. Even more than his usual work-aholic self. I've been feeling overwhelmed and need a break together with my honey. Last night he had the ingenious idea to go on a relaxing get away together. He even said he would be willing to do a couples massage. I was in heaven. I told him I was going to book it before he changed his mind.

So last night I spent most of the evening checking out romantic escapes. I'm looking for something nearby, romantic but not too much (cuz I'm cheap and I have a mortgage to pay too). I was originally looking at resorts with spas on site but those are kind of pricey. So now I'm thinking maybe a hotel and a local day spa instead. I need some recommendations people! I'd love to do a couple massage and facials but more likely we'll only pay for the massages. Where have you gone and liked? Any great romantic hidden hotel/B&B gems that aren't advertised? I'm so excited to have a break! I've already been talking up Grandma for a sleepover to cover childcare.

We stayed at the Castle Creek Inn last year and it was AMAZING!! They are having some July specials so go to their website and check them out.

We got a couples massage at a local Massage Envy, and it was very nice. Granted, I'd never had a massage before that and I haven't had one since, but it felt great!

Here is a link to my blog. It is pictures of the Romeo and Juliet room that we stayed in.

I've never done ANYTHING like this, so I'm excited to see what you figure out!

The Hines Mansion in Provo is really great! Or it was...it's changed ownership since we've been there so I can't vouch for it now. Themed rooms and close location.
