Days of Love 3 & 4

February 8, 2012

Day 3 will go down as one of the sweetest dates I’ve been on.

You might ask, how could a night out to dinner be ranked as one of my favorites?

Well, it was all about the little things that set it apart. For all intents and purposes I’ve allotted the little things with points. 3 points for the adorable way he asked me. Talk about waaay cuter than seeing my scary bed head first thing in the morning. Another 2 points for the surprise gerbers waiting on my seat in the car! Pretty sure I even tee-hee’d (giggled) out loud, followed by a long drawn-out Awwwwww, Babe! And last but not least, a whopping 5 points for the personal love letter (not some phony cheesy-mess, but rather completely genuine and from the heart). Thankfully he snapped the picture before the giant black mascara tears bled down my face.

If you’ve kept track, you’re right (3+2+5)… This date was a 10! Hmm… maybe I should tell him points can be redeemed? Maybe that’ll result in more 10 point date nights in the future.

After Friday’s night out on the town it was my turn to plan a date night at home. Not sure I scored ANY points in comparison to what he busted out. But, I will say cuddly blankets, a good chick flick, and simple snacks always makes for an enjoyable night just relaxing at home.

On a side note, how I snatched up a football-loving-chick-flick-watching kinda guy is beyond me… But it’s a heavenly combination.

      Do it this weekend but tweak it. We do date nights all the time that are practically free and don’t even involve a sitter! Once angel nugget is in bed, make dinner together and eat it on the floor with candles, and take turn talking about memories you have together (or exchange letters you’ve written for each other).

      He’s kind of a gem that has had years of practicing. However, I do have to say he’s kind of a natural bc when we were dating he’d surprise me with a different batch of a flowers each week in my apartment. Somehow he always managed to do it without fail for almost 4 months straight. Ive never seen so many varieties of flowers.

    Aw you really scored a great match with that husband of yours! I can’t believe how thoughtful he is! Glad you guys are having a wonderful February!

      Dude, I was stressed out with the thought of pulling something like this off (a sweet thing every.single.day?!? it was kind of daunting). But now that we’re actually doing it, it’s quite the opposite! We’re making some GREAT memories.

    I love that you are both doing this! What a cute way to keep the spark in your relationship.

    Also, you are the cutest pregnant woman. Hope I look like you when its my turn :)

      It’s been so special to share little things with each other. And you’re right, it’s definitely reigniting the spark! I think it’ll become a yearly tradition as a result. And thank you for the bumpcake compliment… I never get sick of hearing those when I feel like a barge! ha!
