My DH and I are long distance and he’s coming into town this weekend. Happy dance!
So, I want to make this visit really special for him to show him how much I missed him. Any ideas on how to add a speical little touch? We’ve taken off Monday and Friday so we have 4 days to work with. So far I’m thinking:
– Have a bottle of wine and some nice sweets or similar waiting on the table at home, with candles ready to be lit. (It’ll be after 11pm by the time we get back from the airport)
– Stock up on some of his favorite foods and have lots of groceries in the house so that we have lots of healthy food to grab-and-go when we head out on adventures. Prep some of his favorite recipes in advance so we can eat well without spending a lot of time cooking. (Oooh, I have a really nice beef roast in the freezer!)
These are all so basic, I’m so boring! Any ideas for things that would make the visit a little extra special?

I would suggest chocolate covered strawberries for eating with the wine when he gets home.
You could put together a playlist of songs to listen to over the weekend whilst driving and adventuring so that you will have a soundtrack for your weekend.
Perhaps buy some special new outfits for your couple time? 😛

cbgg: I agree with PP as far as something WOW while intimate (not sure if youre a virgin or not but throwing it out there lol) Im in a “LDR” (only 2 and a half hours by car, i see him at least once a month) and I hate to be blunt but we always just end up straight in bed lol.
but i second the wine and things u mentioned. what are his hobbies? does he like plays, operas, museums, picnic, the movies, etc? Maybe plan one thing that would peak his interest.. but spend most of the time just enjoying your time together not coordinating full days. dont over think it too much, im sure he will be happy just to hold you in person again 🙂

this might sound totally lame, but maybe you could buy some fun games or a cool puzzle to do. i know those sound like ideas for an 8 year old, lol, but i recently found my old jenga game and when my husband saw it he was like, “you have jenga? i’ve always wanted to play this!” lol. and you can make things interesting, like loser owes the winner a backrub or something. we also recently bought a 1000-piece puzzle of disneyland and we worked on it together for 2 days. it was low key, but it was nice 🙂
