Nothing that a hammock can’t fix

Posted in Life at 9:01 am by lifebytheday

My cousin got married over the weekend in upstate New York (a beautiful ceremony at Singer Castle on the St. Lawrence river, followed by a super fun backyard barbecue) – so we spent most of the day Friday and again Sunday DRIVING.  Sunday was also S’s 29th birthday, and unfortunately, driving all day, with a hangover, AND getting stopped for a speeding ticket, was not how he had planned to spend his day.  Needless to say, we were both a bit worn out by the time we got home.

Luckily though, his present had arrived – a big ‘ole L.L.Bean hammock – which he promptly set up in the living room.  After an hour laying there, all (well, most!) was forgiven. 😉  Although I did promise him that he could have a birthday week instead of just a day.  We’re doing a cake with my folks tonight and then going up to the lake in Maine with friends and family for the weekend.  Any ideas for some other special surprises?

    I LOVE our hammock! What a great gift!
    How about a day of all his favorites – do his favorite hobby (movies? golf?), eat at his favorite restaurant, etc. I did it for my DH last year and it got me lots of brownie points. 🙂
