Of course this date also had many thought provoking questions like: "Would you rather take a one-week $5000 vacation or go on five different long weekends that cost $1000 each?" or "One of the nicest thing you have ever done is____________." We laughed at a lot of the pet names they suggested for the husband to use that night like, "Gansta baby" or "Bunches of Oats"...um, no thanks! Ha! I got the best part, patting my man on the gluteus maximus at least two times before the night is over.
After our dinner we were told to select a store to buy your spouse a $2 or less gift... the thought is ALL that count$. We then had 10 minutes to complete this task. Well, we choose none other than this store.
Once inside we separated. I stayed on one side of the store and Michael stayed on the other. Well, for the most part. He did try to sneak a peek or two. Here are the gifts:
My gift from Michael: Sugar Babies: "Give me some 'sugar, baby'!" Trail Mix: Michael said it has healthy things like peanuts, raisins, pineapple, and bananas. (I'm trying to eat healthy) But, it also has my weakness chocolate. It's kind of like our marriage. 80% healthy, 20% needs improvement!
My gift to Michael: Duster-to keep our marriage clean and shining. I also bought the infuser to...keep our marriage spicy! Oh, yeah!
Looking a little tired and rough, but happy! Okay, be nice!
Once home, we turned up the music and danced under the *stars*....it was a great night.
I have to give a shout out to my awesome sister, Tara and Rodney for keeping the boys! They had a blast: Wii games, swimming, 4-wheeler rides, roasted hot dogs and made smores. They were worn out from all the fun. Thanks!
Hey YOU...yeah, I'm talking to you my friend...date your husband! It is vital to a happy, healthy marriage!
