One of our goals for the new year (and hopefully forever!) is to go on a planned date each week. We figured that sometimes that date would have to be after Nate goes to bed and at our own place or sometimes it'll be a family outing date. So far we've been pretty good about it! Last week Steve had a dinner thing with the firm he's working for this summer and he asked if he could bring me. They said that it was more of an employee only event. What?! They can't take my boyfriend (aka. husband) away from me on Friday date night! Well...I got over it after a few minutes. It was earlier in the evening so Steve didn't come home too terribly late and we still enjoyed date time together.
But I decided to take my other boyfriend on a date instead:
We went to McDonald's because I thought he might like chicken nuggets, french fries, chocolate milk, and a cool toy. Well, he wasn't too into the food, but he LOVED the booths. It was a huge McDonald's but was practically empty so I let him climb around and enjoy the sitting area as a "play place" since their real play place was outside in the snow. I enjoyed drinking his chocolate milk for him and I have to say I did sneak a chicken nugget or two. We had a good time together and I felt satisfied that I had a date for that evening :)
The Friday before the last one was pretty fun. We went to the mall to exchange a Christmas item that didn't fit Steve. We got a killer deal by the way. We returned one thing and left with 3 things and only had to pay 3 more dollars. JcPenny rocks.
And then we left the mall with this beautiful dessert!
Can you see it? It's a Caramel Pecan Turtle cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory! We went home to make dinner and I'm pretty sure we ate the cheesecake while dinner was cooking...oops :) It was divine.
Well, I'm sure I'll have more reports of our adventurous date nights throughout the year. Whether they be extravagant or simple, I love going on dates with Steve Merrill. He's the caramel topping to my cheesecake, no he's the cream cheese to my cheesecake, no he's the whole cheesecake that makes me go, "WOW, life is good." :)
