B-day Surprise a la Mr. Hotpants

Mr.Hotpants has always been a good one with birthday surprises, mothers day, and most other holidays!  He likes the element of surprise and likes to spoil . .  and this birthday was no different!

Last Friday he came to pick me up from work (we carpool a few days a week); I jumped in the car, we asked how each others day was then he announced "So this is the beginning of your birthday weekend!"  Then he said that he had booked me 2 spa treatments (75min massage with paraffin foot massage, and a hot stone pedicure) at The W Hotel's Bliss Spa.  Then we would be heading downstairs for some cocktails followed by a yummy dinner!!! I was blown away and SO SO needed the break.  The treatments were unbelievable, I took a steam shower before my massage and it made it that much better!  

The gorgeous W Hotel in Westwood

My standing drink, a Kir Royale, at one of my most favorite and memorable restaurants, Soleil in Westwood! Mr. Hotpants and I lived in the most perfect little cottage in Westwood from our engagement till after our wedding. . . and since we were married in the South of France, we immediately sought out a French restaurant in our neighborhood after our honeymoon . . .We found Soleil and Luc (the owner) and it was love at first bite! (we had my 30th birthday party here too)

Our little cottage . . . so many great memories here . . . le sigh!

My first cocktail of the evening . . . a delicious fresh mint organic mojito!

Mr. Hotpants in all his stunning beauty! he he he . . . 

The bar in the W Hotel . . . modern rustic! loved it 

Restaurant at the W hotel . . . loved the minimal, modern rustic decor . . . highly recommend going for a drink here

The rest of the weekend was wonderful . . . there was some gardening, drawing, shopping, and ladybug buying!!! We went to our local Armstrong's and picked up some ladybugs to put on the rosebushes to eat the aphids!!! and we found these carnivorous "King Charles" snails . . . the eat all the brown garden snails (the ones that eat all you plants)  . . . we set both of these guys out Saturday night so we will see if it helps the garden this summer!

Mr. Hotpants made little Ms. Em's lunch for school and look how cute it was!!! Flower PB&J sandwich, fresh fruit salad, and tofu!
