Date Night!

railroadtracks

Anthony and I decided to go on a walk for our date night last night. Yes, we have Tuesday night date nights! How old and lame are we? Haha! But seriously, the sights were great and the conversation was even better. Plus Tuesdays are great because no one else is out so if we want to go out to eat or get ice cream or whatever, there aren’t any lines or waiting lists. It can also make for a more intimate setting. And date nights have been so good for our marriage. So good you guys. Sometimes the best dates cost the least, you know what I mean?

And we also went to a shaved ice stand that we had never been to before but oh my goodness. We didn’t realize how BIG it was going to be! Like they basically gave us double to size of the cup. I mean look at it!!! Instant regret. So much sugar!

Do you have date nights? What are your favorite date nights? Mine are usually in the fall. Stay tuned for those. ūüėČ

Conversation Starters

It has been cold and snowing here in the Midwest lately!¬†Indoor play dates, movies, popcorn, baking (bread,¬†cookies, etc.), and lots of hot beverages like this new tea that I got (It’s awesome! Plum white is perfect!). Cold, snowy, hot beverage days also means more coffee dates with friends. And my husband when he’s got some time. That man works SO hard. Proud of him. ūüôā

Anyone else like going out for coffee with a friend or the spouse? I love it. In fact, one of my favorite dates with my husband includes going for hot chocolate during the cold seasons or cold drink during the warm seasons. Without a toddler in tow. I love her and enjoy bringing her with me, buuuut it’s nice to have an uninterrupted conversation with someone every once in a while. You know what I mean mamas?

In order to have a conversation, you need some communication. Questions to ask, something to talk about. I mean dirty diapers and how many times you can make cheese quesadillas in a week (I’ve got 4 days so far!) are great to chat about. But there’s got to be something more, right? I found some of these great questions here and the rest are from my own experience, awkward pauses and all. ūüėČ

1.) If you could live in any era, what would it be and why?

2.) If you could change your name, what would you change it to?

3.) If you could invite any 3 people over for dinner (dead or alive), who would you invite and why?

4.) What’s your favorite thing about yourself and why?

5.) Are you an optimist, pessimist, or realist? Give a real life example.

6.) What are some things you splurge on and why?

7.) What are some things you save on and why?

8.) If you could only have one hobby for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?

9.) Describe your current life situation in 3 adjectives.

10.) What’s your dream house look like? Big, small, modern, old?

Happy Hump Day friends! ūüėÄ What’s your favorite drink to order on coffee dates?
