If you regularly follow Ashar and me, you’ve already noticed that we’ve been away for a while, like for 2 weeks, if I’m not wrong. Believe me or not, we’ve remembered posting every single day and missed writing as well. Still, the situation isn’t always the same.
They say every day is new, so here I am back writing on my desktop with my mind’s ideas. To communicate with you and share what my husband and I were up to!
Today was one of the lazy days that I’d prefer not to have around in the future. You know those days when nothing feels good, the brain is in a sleeping mode, and all our body wants is to stretch on the bed for the whole day. But this is the rare day. In the end, I cooked yummy dinner and writing as one of the kids is calmly snoring while the other just jumping around.
Not all days are the same in life, right? We had today, but we had SATURDAY as well that I ADORE entirely! You’re thinking, what was so special? Well, if you read the title, I’m telling you about my birthday celebration in this post. YAYY!!
This happened last Saturday though my birthday was on Sunday. All the credit goes to my adorable husband. Our original plan was to celebrate on Sunday, but our Sunday was a mess. In some other post, I’ll tell you what actually happened to us on Sunday that the celebration did not go as planned.
My birthday celebration was not extravagant in terms of spending money. We invited no one on my birthday. Instead, we celebrated at home, just at 12 AM on Saturday night to Sunday morning. Just me, hubby and our son blowing candles (that we already had from before) and a home-made cake that I originally made for my son. My husband did not buy me anything but care and time. Though there was something more that I wasn’t aware of on the Saturday afternoon. Don’t worry, you’ll get to know soon; just keep reading.
A week before, my husband asked me, ‘What would you like for your birthday?’ And I’m like, ‘Nothing much, just some fine dine out.’ Obviously, I wasn’t interested in cooking the same food at home. Yes, I love cooking, and my original plan was to bake a Chicken Lasagne at home, but soon I realized that my husband and I must avoid Cheese and Fat for now.
Coming back to the gift, so he asked me to tell him something other than the food, and I go, ‘The only thing I adore is to eat out. Yes, I’m a foody’. I told him to take me to THAILAND.
What? No, don’t get me wrong! I asked him to go to ‘Thailand Restaurant,’ a unique Thai restaurant in our suburb, not overseas!
My hubby noted my request and said, ‘means I have to get something for you I won’t tell you.’ And I go, ‘But I really don’t want anything. I always get the pocket money from you and spends with my wish; why would I bother asking you something special?’. But he’s a good man. He kept what he wanted to surprise me within his mind.
On Saturday, he asked me to go somewhere I was unaware of. He lied that he needs to buy himself shoes. I’m like, ‘but why I’m going, mate!’ He did not answer. I ran up and got ready instantly. I’ve never been that prompt before!
We finally arrived at the Mall, and I asked him at the entrance, ‘Where are we going? The Adidas Store is on the right, not straight’. And he asked me to keep moving. I was quite familiar with the Shopping Centre, so I started getting a vibe of what was going on. Guess what? He was taking me to the HAIR SALON!
YAY YAY! I was waiting for the moment he reveals because I was extraordinarily happy within, but I wanted to be sure. And my guess was RIGHT!
Do you get enough time for self-care? Especially if you’re a Mom, and you take care of the family. Is it hard, right? Due to the COVID-19, I did not have hair color and trimmed done for the past 6 months from the Salon. Though I was dying my hair and trimmed at home every 2 months. But it doesn’t give as finished look as it does with a Salon Dye. So, I had foils plus hairstyling and blew dry. The whole process was so relaxing!
For me, it does not matter how much he spent on my hair foils or whether or not he bought me a designer dress and a branded jewelery. Being his life partner, I’m most proud that he clearly understands my needs without telling him. He knew what I was planning to do for long, and he simply surprised me. This was a sweet little gesture that I could not thank him enough. But this wasn’t the only one; we still had a dine out at my favorite restaurant the next day!
To my husband:
“I’m so proud of you. I just wanted to tell you in case no one has”.Tweet
