Okay, I have to admit that making a date happen in March (the month of moving) was a bit of a challenge. And throw in the fact that we are in a new area and have to start from scratch when it comes to finding a good baby-sitter . . . . and you can see that the odds were against us. (Conner's almost there, but not quite ready to watch the other two for hours in the evening. This is also the reason why I haven't seen the Hunger Games movie yet, dag-nabbit!)
I pulled something together this weekend.
I think the most important part of this date-your-husband thing is just that you set aside time for each other. No distractions. Where you can focus on each other. It doesn't have to be fancy. This month's date is a testament to that!
It's a British theme night. In a round-a-bout way. Because themes are fun.
First, we hopped in the truck and ran to Red Robin to pick up some fish & chips. (We were only gone for 30 minutes - totally doable).
We brought the food home and gave the kids one more hug & kiss goodnight (Scott thought it would be funny to bang on the patio sliding door before entering the apartment, which scared the boys out of their whits -- haha).
We spread out the food on our bachelor pad coffee table . . . .
And turned on Netflix to watch . . .
Oh yes. I have finally arrived. Episodes 1 and 2 of season one were great and I can't wait to watch more.
Now, you're probably wondering what Scott thought about this date . . . . Well, several weeks ago when I shared my desire to join the Downton Abbey club he said that he would watch it with me. So I took him up on his offer. He liked it too. We both agreed that the show is really interesting. It's eye-opening to see how people in differing social classes lived in this period of time.
Now do you see how the British theme came together? Fish and chips . . . . Downton Abbey. It's a pretty loose interpretation of the theme, but in a pinch it works.
I had everything read to make scones as well, but we were too full. So I made them for breakfast the next day.
Okay now it's your turn!
Here's how it goes:
1. Go on a date with your husband. Easy, right? And post a wrap-up on your blog. This is for anyone . . . whether you put together a Year of Dates gift or not.
2. On the first of the month, come here and submit a link to your blog post. Not your blog
3. In your blog post include a text link back to me. You're also welcome to use the image below.
4. Lastly, have fun and visit each other!
