Birthday Weekend

Chad took me out for a weekend getaway last weekend for my birthday. We drove down to Talihina and looked at the beautiful foliage on Talimena Drive. If you've never been, you must go. I think we missed the peak colors by about a week, but it was still breathtakingly beautiful. It was so nice to just get away for a bit. I love spending time together. He has a way of making me feel so special. Here are a few of my favorite pics from my camera. I'll post a few more once I figure out how to load them off of Chad's camera.

Check out the price of gas!!!!

Early Birthday/Christmas Present

Last night my husband gave me an early birthday/Christmas present...remote start for my car!!!! I am so excited! I don't have to go outside in the freezing cold to heat my car up! He is so thoughtful! How great is this!!!
About a month ago we were running errands together in Joplin. He wanted to stop at this car place to see about getting his alarm on his Yukon fixed. While we were there he asked about remote start. I was thinking to myself...ARE YOU KIDDING ME!?! You don't even drive your truck walk to work. Why in the world would you need that. I didn't say anything though. I decided not to make an issue of it, but to give it some time and see if anything came of it. Looking back, I'm so glad I didn't throw a fit because he was actually asking about it for my car. Sneaky, huh? So fast forward to Friday... Friday morning Chad got up early to go workout, so he was up before I left. He went outside to warm up my car for me and start his. When he came back in, he informed me that his truck wouldn't start and he needed to borrow mine for the day. Sometimes his truck doesn't start, so I didn't even think anything of it. Later that night when he got home, he gave me my early present. This is so great! I really hate being cold! Thanks to Chad, now when my windshield has a layer of frost on it, I can go ahead and defrost it without even going outside! I can stay warm inside the house instead of sitting in my car saying "burr" for 30 minutes while my whole body tenses up. This was such a great gift! I keep thinking of how this would have come in handy the year my mom and I tried to defrost my door handles with hairdryers....those days are long gone now! Thank you for being so thoughtful Chad, I love you! You're the best!!!
