Date day

Thanks for all the good ideas for our date day. We didn't use them (boooh on us!), but we'll probably use them next week so they weren't said in vain :) We ended up going to a gun show with some friends (it's TX...that is a date ;), went out for lunch, hung out with some friends. But, we did put down the couch cushions on the floor with blankets and pillows while we watched Christmas themed movies. It was nice just to hang out. Nothing too spectacular, but enough to appreciate each other.

I hope those of you that haven't taken a date with your hubby/wifey/significant other in a while think about doing it! We make a point to spend the day together on Saturdays so that grad school and, well, life doesn't get the better of us. Even if it's a few hours of you two in a park while your mom/dad/sister/brother/etc watches the kids (for you moms and dads), it can really help the rest of your week and remind you of how great your life is. This is especially true if you're having problems lately that make you feel down in the dumps). Sometimes we need to be reminded of how much we are loved.

P.S. Chantelle - I promise I'll get to the 7 random things again. Till then, you can read what I said last time here :)

it does not matter what you do, the important thing is to spend time together. that is what hubby and i did this weekend - nothing! it was great :)

Glad you had a nice time together. If we had a sitter we would for sure be out doing "alone" things lol. But no sitter means no go for now at least.

Have a SUPER wonderful week!

Sounds like a good date day. You were appreciating each other and that's what counts. Thanks for the reminder to do that.

That sounds real nice! I'm excited because my hubby and I will get some alone time this weekend while my sister and her family watch our 4 year old! Yay!!!

Our dates usually consist of drinking wine and watching a movie in our living room after the kids go to bed. Does that count? Once in a while we actually get out of the house, but not often. My hubby's too cheap to spring for a sitter often.

you KNOW I agree with the making time...if we didnt EVERY SINGLE WEEK NO MATTER WHAT I fear to think where we'd be.

nothing fancy---just us-time.
