I thought this has to be it....but no, the girls put me back in the car and said Mark is taking you to your NEXT destination. I was floored!!!!
I felt like royalty driving thru the city streets of Charlotte in this stunning car.....people looking at me at every light....wondering who I was and what I was about....because this thing was fancy!!! Mark drove me into Uptown Charlotte and dropped me off at the front door of the famous Dunhill Hotel......he said you need to go inside.....and left me at my destination full of wonder and excitement. Then I saw him....my Adam....dressed to the nines, carrying a gorgeous, HUGE bouquet of fragrant pink roses. He was a vision and I immediately started crying...."what have you done?? I can't believe you planned of all this." You could see relief in his eyes and pure joy as his surprise had come together. I was then taken upstairs to our gorgeous suite for the night...he had planned everything....I had all my tolietries, a bag packed, a pretty dress to wear....it was our night together...while my parents (who remember knew the whole time) had come down just for the weekend to see me for my birthday and took the time to stay at our place, order chinese food, watch a movie and keep the puppies. I am forever grateful for that! A night away....our first since finding out the baby was on the way....it was absolutely amazing....I've never, ever had a surprise like it.....We then had an amazing dinner downstairs at the Monticello restaurant in the hotel, we relaxed late night in our room with room service dessert, and woke up early early to watch the sunrise over Charlotte on the first day of my 30th year. Every minute, every laugh, every tear, every smile....genuine, loving and heartfelt...
Thank you Adam......you never cease to amaze me.....you outdid yourself this time baby! Thank you for making my 30th my best birthday yet!
Here are just some of the pics of my amazing day:
