The Most Perfect Weekend

Jefferson somehow managed to surprise me with a weekend vacation this last weekend. I say that because since I don't have a job at the moment, I am home all of the time which makes surprises harder to pull off...or so I thought...I have a pretty sneaky husband. Last week was Jeff's final week of Monday-Thursday schedule. This week he goes back to the normal Monday-Friday so he planned a weekend getaway for the two of us.
Ready to start the journey!

Packing up for the weekend!

On our way to the car! Isn't he so handsome

He got us tickets to see Cirque du Soleil which was absolutely amazing.

They set up the entire tent in the parking lot of Cardinals Stadium. Crazy!
Next came Culver's for dinner. Jeff ate here a lot (especially the ice cream) when he was on his mission in Chicago. We were talking about how good it was the other day and realized that they are all over down here now. Hint: if you join their club online you get a buy one get one free coupon for a meal but you have to use it within 2 weeks of joining. If you have them around you, go. You won't be sorry.
Thank goodness we parked right next to the trailer so that I could get this awesome picture. This boy was excited!

Double bacon butterburger delux did not disappoint.

However the peanut butter with peanut butter cup ice cream topped it all off.

Mine was leaking out the bottom. Still just as delicious. 
After dinner it was time to pick up apple turnovers for breakfast (this tradition started on our honeymoon and has no end in sight) and then headed to the Wigwam for the weekend.

Breakfast the next morning. Proof that we do love those turnovers.

 Then we relaxed and finally decided to get ready for the day. First stop, Wendys for lunch.

Then on to see the new Snow White movie. It was awesome! And yes, we did buy our drinks at Wendys and sneak them into the theater in my purse. Good thing no one seemed to hear the clanking of the ice with each step. In the theater's defense, they didn't have much hope of catching us when the movie in each theater was printed on computer paper and taped next to the theater number. 

Then we went swimming. No pictures of that. A storm had just hit and another one was coming so it was a bit chilly which is always weird for July in Phoenix. 

The other night while laying in bed I told Jeff that I really wanted Macayo's mini chimis. In his mostly-asleep voice he said "if you want it, it's yours." Guess where he planned on going to dinner? Funny story. We each ordered our meal and then got a cheese quesadilla to share plus they give you the chips and salsa. Yes that is a lot of food. The waitress got a little confused and thought we were splitting Jeff's meal so she brought it out on 2 plates. Our table was literally completely covered in food. We looked like total pigs but it was so funny!

The next morning it was more apple turnovers and more relaxing. We slept in later than we have in a while. Here's some more pictures for your enjoyment. 

Thank you for planning this whole vacation Jeff. It was perfect and I had such a great time!
