I got spoiled on Saturday!!

Well the title is only partially true.  I get spoiled almost every day by Eric.  I just might be the luckiest girl alive.  This Saturday was a day of extra spoiling though.  First of all, I got to sleep in which always makes me happy on a Saturday.  I got to go for a nice run in the brisk fall air, and then I got to play tennis with a friend.  I'd say that's a great start to a great day!

Now comes the good stuff.  Eric told me he had something planned for me, and that I needed to be ready at 2:00.  I usually ask a lot of questions, but I actually restrained myself this time.  I only asked a few.  2:00 rolled around and there was a knock at the door.  It was Lisa.  She was told to be at my place at 2.  She didn't know what was going on either.  A couple of minutes later there was another knock on the door.  It was our friends Dan and Katie.  Now I was really confused!!  Turns out we have awesome husbands and they surprised us with pedicures!  Seriously, I love being surprised with something like that! The three of us headed off to be pampered and were told to be at Red Robin for dinner at 4:00.

The pedicures were obviously wonderful.  It was Katie's first one and I'm sure it won't be her last!  Here's some proof:

Don't they look so happy?!

I decided to go with orange to celebrate Halloween and Thanksgiving. 

After our relaxing pedicures, we met up with our husband's and cute little Carter at Red Robin for a delicious meal.  It was a good time.  It always is. 

After that Eric and I, and Dan and Katie headed up to Costco to pick up some needed food.  Eric and Dan both like to walk up and down every aisle so Katie and I went along with it.  Eric loves Costco so he was having the time of his life.  Dan and Katie also found a little gem there.  A pack of Harry Potter movies 1-6 for $32.99!!  That's a steal.  Dan and Katie bought it and I was a little jealous.  Eric said we'd get it later, but he has this philosophy that you never pass up a deal at Costco.  He was acting weird, and I had a feeling something was up but I just played along.  Well, once we got home, it turns out he had a Halloween gift for me.  The movies!!  He had bought them the other day and wanted me to have them before the new one comes out.  Isn't he the best?  We also noticed that there were two coupons inside for $7.50 off the new movie.  That makes it an even better deal.  I think it makes each movie about $3! 

Moral of the story is, I have the best husband in the whole world, I have pretty toes, and now I own 6 great movies.  I am one lucky lady!
