Date Night

My husband will be the first to admit that he's not the most romantic guy.
He can fix just about anything in the world, and he makes me laugh like it's nobody's business, but romance is not at the top of his list. I honestly think his idea of romance is trying to limit his amount of gas when I'm sitting on the couch with him. He's also the worst liar I've ever met, so imagine my shock when I came home from a run yesterday to find the kids eating dinner and this in the bathroom:

(He told me he was coming home early so I could run before he had to go back to work for the evening.)

We have this crazy date tradition where we take our picture in silly sunglasses and text it to some friends. They do the same for us when they're out. It's really fun and mature and you should definitely try it sometime.

And even though we didn't get chased by mobsters or see Marky Mark without his shirt on, it was still a pretty great night. (And if you don't know what I'm talking about, stop reading this and go rent the movie Date Night with Steve Carrell and Tina Fey. And you may want to wear a diaper while watching it in case you wet yourself from laughing so hard.)



  1. next time i'm on a date with Connor I will send you a picture.

  2. LOve it! I was trying to figure out why you were describing his DAD though....too funny!

    Glad the romance sneaks in just often enough :D

  3. I love this post. My hubby is not capable of being romantic, but he can make me laugh at any given moment & handy as all get out. I try to remember the latter when feeling neglected :) I'm glad to hear you had some romance your way (please send it my way when you are finished :)
