Oh Romeo, Romeo, Wherefore Art Thou Romeo

Oh how I love surprises...but how I love to find out what they are before they are given...  Last weekend Todd took me to the winery.

I was thinking we were just enjoying a Saturday early evening at the winery then later some din din.  I was wrong.  Todd was kind of nudging us to go, he said we had reservations...what reservations how have I not heard of this???  So where was he taking me...I must figure this out!  Oh Station 220 we can have wine pairings with their four course no, CJ's because I have been wanting to try there cheesolicious pizza no Destihl because there beer tastings and stuffed poblano is to die for.  Am I close :0)

All I can say is poor Todd.  I try to ruin surprises.  They are so fun but tell me, tell me, tell me.  So we rush home and a cab picks us up.  I was thinking good restaurant, lots of bubbly... Then  we get into the cab and sneaky Julia reads what is one the cabos screen EWING MANOR.  Oh my, Ewing Manor, the castle thing...!!!  My first reaction was OMG Todd is going to propose tonight, he reserved the Ewing Manor, has Station 220 cooking for us and he is going to get down on one knee and pledge his love.  Then I knocked myself back into smart mode and was like...come on, we have not looked "looked" at rings and my imagination runs wild.  So we get there and there is no white horse to take us on a carriage ride around the beautiful city of Bloomington :) No one cooking a lavish dinner and family is awaiting in the back on the castle all geddy.  You know what was going on though!?  The Shakespeare Festival!!!!  I have been waiting to go there forever, it always looks so cool and there is the play!  Oh Romeo, Romeo, Wherefore Art Thou Romeo.  It was awesome.  We were late but there was jazz before, Todd ordered Kelly's Bakery and he got us the best seats in the house for the play.  This was an early birthday gift and one of the most thoughtful gifts ever.  So are truly the best and I love you with my whole heart.
