The Perfect Saturday

All week, I had been feeling a little down because Mr. LoLo was going to have to work Saturday and have Sunday off, the same day that I would be leaving for Puerto Rico at 5am. We looked at our calendars together and realized that we wouldn't have another day off together until the last weekend of October and that felt like just too long.

Saturday morning, I woke up because Bronx was whining (squeaking really) and because I heard kind of a loud noise coming from downstairs. LoLo had gotten up at 6:30 to go to work so I was a little nervous when I heard noises. My first instinct was to look out the bedroom window which overlooks the driveway and what do I see? LoLo's car!

I swung open the bedroom door to hear the sound of sizzling and the smell of onions and green peppers. I yelled down, "LoLo??? What are you doing here?!" And ran down the stairs with Bronx right behind me.

When I got downstairs, there was LoLo all dressed and cooking an amazing breakfast. Apparently, his boss had made a mistake with the schedule and told him Friday night that he wouldn't have to work Saturday, but LoLo wanted to surprise me.

Eggs, shredded potatoes with onions and red and green peppers, and garlic toast... YUMMMM!
After breakfast, we decided to run lots of errands together. The first stop was the L.L. Bean Flagship store right up in Freeport. When we got out of our car, we realized there was some sort of barbeque happening right on the green in front of the store. There was even an L.L. Bean Bear walking around so of course I had to take a picture.

On our way back to our car we realized they were giving away free peeps and chocolate truffles so we headed over to the Peep-mobile and the Lindt Chocolate Bunny-mobile.

And right before we got to our car, we saw free local cider and apples.

It turned out to be such a nice little fall date even though we didn't plan any of it! Sometimes the days you don't plan turn out to be the absolute best ones!

Ahh I love LL Bean in Freeport! They always have the most random stuff happening. I've stopped by on days when there are concerts all day and one day in the winter where they had actual sled dogs you could meet! Awesome. I'm jealous.
