Great Date #1
We had a blast together! It was interesting to have someone else plan our date and provide great questions.
Our first stop, after dropping the boys off at my sister's house, was Colten's for dinner. According to the date "rules" we were supposed to let the waitress choose our meal. We could give her one stipulation, so we told her no seafood. Since Michael is the picky one I let him choose the stipulation. I was not nervous at all, but our waitress was! I told Michael before we got to the restaurant that we would either get someone who was excited to play along, or get someone who would be apprehensive. Even though she was nervous, she picked out great food. Michael was served a steak, salad, and stemmed broccoli. I had loaded chicken with a side of sweet potato fries. It was so good.
Before we left we had more fun with our waitress. You should have seen her face after she took our picture and asked if there is anything else she was suppose to do. I jokingly replied, "pick up the tab" Ha! We did leave her a big tip for being a good sport. We had great conversation and felt like two teenagers in love while throwing peanut shells at each other.
Michael talking during the picture! Ha!
The next point was to choose an activity to do together. We were going to go to the Razorback baseball game, but I didn't bring my coat and it was getting cold. We chose a movie instead. No, movies are not the best place for conversation, but we chose the drive-in movies where it is more intimate and asked our questions in between the movies. We watched Blindside (again), and New Moon.
There were great questions to be discussed; picking out a $2.00 dessert in a grocery store for each other; yelling "my husband is HOT" in public; kissing at every red light until someone honks; and carving our initials into a tree. So many fun ideas! We laughed and laughed because we went through many stop lights and they were all green. Finally, we started hitting a few red ones, but nobody would honk at us, even after it turned green a while. Ha!
I love dating my husband! One of my Love Languages is quality time. After last night...
My LOVE TANK is full!
