Yesterday was the day I was supposed to plan as a special day with Röbert. He had suggested shopping, which was sweet, but I didn’t really want to do that because we have different definitions for the word “affordable”. I decided a spa day would be perfect, but Röbert got a call confirming our mani-pedi, and told me that he just didn’t think he felt comfortable with that. Just like I don’t feel comfortable with camping, I guess. So we ended up shopping anyway.
Here’s the thing, as nice as it was for Röbert to offer, it wasn’t as much fun to do with him as it would be with one of my gal pals. He really doesn’t like poking in stores and I think he looked bored at the makeup counter. I did get some cute everyday things, but I didn’t dare look at the designer places or even glance towards my favorite purses.
We went to the cutest lil’ cafe for brunch and we were seated on the patio, which was fantastic. I think Röbert enjoyed that part.
Our next date should probably be to a neutral place. No mountains, no stores…maybe a fashion show or antiquing.
