Practically Perfect

I'm the worst person to try and surprise. Surprises and I have a love/hate relationship. I love being surprised but hate the unknown, thus, I always end up figuring out whatever surprises John tries to muster up. In my defense, I try hard not to let my mind figure out the surprise, but I can't help that I'm just too smart.

Since our anniversary fell on a Sunday this year, we decided to celebrate our day of marital matrimony on Saturday, and John was adamant that the day be full of surprises.  To oblige, I tried hard not to "figure out" what he had planned. 

I think we both succeeded. 

Success included...

Tandem bike ride around Lake Hefner, something I've been wanting to do for awhile now, but never really thought we actually would...

Note to self: Always let the man sit in front, it's a much more pleasant ride that way.

Followed by a cool down session at the pool. Now that we've discovered such easy access to a pool (and it's 110 degrees outside) it's the only thing that gets us through the days...

And then, lunch of course, and a second failed attempted at using our groupon, the fine print will get you every time...


After a packed morning, relaxation was in order.
Massages, couples massages to be exact, my all time favorite thing EVER. Ever ever ever EVER EVER!
Not pictured, for your sake more than ours.

And then we freshened up and headed out for a night on the town, Oklahoma style...


For the first time since moving to Oklahoma, I actually thought OKC is kind of cool. Maybe we just need to hang out downtown more often to enjoy it's night life that I never knew existed.

The Melting Pot was calling our name, and seeing that they had a table, and a Happy Anniversary card waiting for us, we couldn't really say no...





 

Love him!

A strapless swimsuit AND blue pants? The horror!

See if John can guess who said that one. :)

Looked like a fun night. I kind of want to come to OKC again. Is that weird?

Best packed day ever--you should be an event planner.

So happy to have discovered your blog. Now I can stalk you instead of just randomly sending you messages on facebook asking about cookbooks.

haha you guys crack me up - happy anniversary!
#1) Men should always ride in the front on tandem bikes. I heartily concur.
#2) Love the swimsuit & the hair & the outfits. I think you should be an event planner/tv show host/model/magazine writer/everything.
#3) That last picture belongs in the John Lovell Hall of Fame Pictures. He's got talent! :)
