My husband and I finally had a chance to get away for a romantic weekend. It was nice that we were able to schedule it in between his birthday and Valentine's Day, killing two birds with one stone. We went to Boise, Idaho to our favorite hotel called the Anniversary Inn. They have themed rooms and since it was his birthday, I let him pick which room we would stay in. He chose "Treasure Island", a fun room that really made you feel like you were on an old tall ship. My husband loves tall ships and wants to work on one someday and his idea of a romantic cruise is to go on a working tall ship together someday.
There were two "masts" and even a wheel. You walk upstairs to the king-sized bed. The large flat-screen TV was cleverly hidden behind the sail. Rigging ropes hung from the walls and the ceiling. A total "guy" room, LOL. Hand-painted sky and waves are all around the room and ceiling.
You could walk the plank to the "sandy lagoon" complete with palm trees and a huge Jacuzzi bath tub in the middle of the "sand". The shower came out from a coconut in the palm tree and the bathwater cleverly came out from a spout in this cute treasure chest.
They gave us complimentary sparkling apple cider and cheese cake as well as a nice breakfast left outside our room in the morning at the time we specified. It is expensive but worth it!
Michael and I had a fun time exploring more of Boise's many restaurants as well as doing some shopping. We spent a great deal of time at Cabella's and got an awesome double cot that was on sale. Michael is going to make a pad for us and save us some money.
A big thanks to my mom and step dad for taking our kids so we could spend some time together. Due to an upcoming deployment, and all of the training associated with it as well as his new job as tank mechanic, we aren't going to be seeing a whole lot of each other for the next year and a half. We've got to make some more memories while we can!
Happy Valentine's Day everyone,
