So Tuesday rolls around, and my husband has a day date with Caden. This gave me a perfect chance to clean up our bedroom and transform in "La Spa Jacquee". LOL Oh man oh man was my room a DISASTER. It took me practically all day to get it where I wanted it to be. I had nice red sheets on the bed (no blankets). I put nice black material on the end tables (that I completely cleaned off). Tons of candles all over the place. On the end table I set up lotions, a hand towel, a nice little "spa" sign. Something like this (ignore my ugly bedroom... one of these days I'll do a makeover!).
|Bed and nightstand|
|Nightstand without the lotions involved|
On our chest at the foot of the bed, my daughter spelled out love in candles. :)
Once the bedroom was all ready I posted signs on our bedroom doors saying "You have been BANNED from this room. By order of the Date Master" Just to insure he didn't see the room before it was time. :) So Larry gets home bringing the most beautiful roses for our date.
Once the kids went to bed, I had him sit in the "waiting room" and complete a quiz on the Love Languages. (the modern day version of a magazine!) I *meant* to get out our foot spa thingy to do his feet while taking the quiz, but I forgot. Oops. While he was doing the quiz, however, I started a bubble bath (with skin softener) for him and put a towel and his robe going in the dryer. Once his quiz was finiished, I escorted him to the bath, presented him with a glass of beer (we didn't have anyy wine in the house), and let him relax while I set the bedroom up. I lit all the candles, made sure the room was warm with a little electric heater, and set up a wine glass with fruit set up in it.
Rubs and Touches. I actually organized them from head to foot with him laying on his back, then back up with him laying on his stomach. He actually found several methods he liked, as long as I didn't touch him quickly without him expecting it. HAHA
I didn't get a massage in return, but I was happy with what I did get. :wink:
All in all it was a wonderful date. Next week, we get to go OUT!!!
