I’ve been holding off on this post because I didn’t want to jinx it. Not that I’m a superstitious person, but I do find a certain amount of comedic irony and predictable pitfalls in my life. But considering that it’s nearly over, I’m going to just put it out there. I may have just had a perfect weekend.
It began on Friday, when we left right after work to drive down to Ocean City. We cashed in some of my husband’s Hilton Honors points for an ocean-front suite at a beach resort. With school back in session, the drive down was a breeze and we ran into practically no traffic.
We had dinner at my favorite chain restaurant, Carrabba’s. The meal was perfect, featuring even my favorite soup de jour: the spicy sausage and lentil. The waitress was awesome, and the experience left absolutely to be desired. I even scored a great parking space.
Arriving at the hotel, we checked into our very comfortable suite, which featured a full kitchen, living room, and ocean view balcony. We popped in season 2 of Community of DVD and relaxed for the rest of the evening.
Saturday, we slept in. The beds were super comfy that it was difficult to get moving. We then headed to breakfast, using the free vouchers that my husband’s diamond level status provided to us to upgrade to the full hot buffet.
After breakfast, we hung out by the pool until we were hungry. Then we ordered yummy sandwiches and noshed to the sounds of the acoustic guitar duo that played nearby. After we’d had our fill, we took a walk along the beach.
For dinner, we headed to our favorite crab house for their all-you-can-eat special. We sat outside in the breeze and picked crabs until the sun went down. As we watched the lone storm they predicted for the evening roll in, we grabbed a few beers and some snacks. The rain caught us on the drive back, but by then we were ready to relax in our suite for the rest of the night. We finished the DVD and went to bed.
The drive home was easy and uneventful. The rest of the day was filled with laundry, grocery shopping and watching football. We had yummy Chinese take out from a new place, since we won’t go back to the other place anymore. As the evening wears down, I’m happy to report a near-perfect weekend experience, not to brag, but because they happen so infrequently, it needs to be documented.
