thankful day twelve;
today i am thankful for
spontaneous get aways with the husband!

we woke up yesterday
and decided to get a hotel
in the nearby city of lynnwood-
it is north of seattle and about 
an hour & half away from home...
it is a place we stay quite frequently
when we want to decompress
and just enjoy some time together.

but, first off i went to the local thrift store
with a was 50% off day (veteran's day sale)
we had a great time and 
both of us found some awesome deals!
we went straight to the shoes
and i found a fantastic pair of 'beat up'
leather ankle boots that i just ADORE...
i kept saying, how much i loved them! hehe
while we were in the shoes...
over the intercom came a reminder that it was: 
11/11/11 and the time was 11:11
i will always remember where i was that day...
in the shoe dept. finding my awesome boots!!! :) :)

after my little shopping/lunch date with the gal-pal
i picked up the hubbie and we headed for 
our little get away.

this particular hotel has happy hour 
in the evening-with snacks and drinks
and a free made to order breakfast in the morning~

we went to a movie last night
complete with tons of buttered popcorn and skittles ;)

today we are going to drive around,
go to the bookstore, mall and take
a drive on old highway 99

i just LOVE little get aways!

i hope your saturday is just lovely-
that you have time with those you love
and that you can rest in the moment...
life is too short not to enjoy the ride!

shine on!
