Our Big Date

Posted by Jon in HB | 5:54 PM | 2 comments »

Well, no thanks to your comments, we had a wonderful day. After days of contemplation and planning and miscommunications and lack of communication and misinterpretation and a big old argument I finally planned a great day. Once we shuttled the kids off to camps and sitters it was about 1:30pm and we headed to the Newport Marriott's pure blu Spa for a day of relaxation.

We spent the day lounging by the salt water lap pool in our own private cabana talking, reading, napping and swimming. We sipped champagne and wine. They were four packs of the bottles you get on the airplane. Gina smuggled them in because after spending all that money on the spa, our asses were too cheap to buy booze at hotel mark-up prices.

We enjoyed the dry sauna, eucalyptus steam room, and whirlpool. Then it was off to our massages. We each enjoyed a Cool blu Signature massage and then showered and met in the hotel bar for a cocktail. We then walked across the street to Fashion Island and walked around. Finally ending up at P.F. Changs for dinner.

It was a very nice relaxing day of adult conversation and reconnecting. Through it all Gina and I discovered what are true calling is. We are going to become authors of a book or website that reviews spas for couples. Now we just need to find a lot of sitters, vacation time from work and some high roller to fund our project! If you know of someone that might be interested in helping us out, please have the call us. It would be a grueling job, but we're up for the challenge!

    You forgot to mention the following highlights:
    **Jon went way out of his comfort zone in the cabana!
    **Gina had a Pretty Woman moment in Victoria's Secret.

    And in my defense...not one attendant came by to see if we would like to order anything in the 3 hours we sat by the pool. Which we would have paid for a few drinks!! If they don't want people bringing their own booze, then the attendents should be more attentive!

    I'm glad you guys had a great time together. As for investing: I wish I could help you out, but my millions are tied up elsewhere. Maybe you could ask me in another 20 years when all of my investments (Austin, Tamila, Aaron and Travis) have paid off.
