him.

geez.
he completely makes me smile.

We get a tiny impromptu date night tonight!! I wasn't sure if I would be able to attend my art show or not but turns out I have permission to go and sit for a bit of the event :). I am so excited!

Date nights can be hard to come by with little ones around. And then throw bedrest into the mix- but today, yes today I get a night out with my love. 
We don't get out just us two enough. I think I need to be more intentional in this area. 
Taking away Aiden's naps and gaining back our evenings together was huge. But now with a new little one on the way, I think it's going to be a new goal. 
More date nights. 
Even if that means a night away doing not much of anything.

Happy Thursday, can't wait to show pics from the show!

  1. That's so exciting for you two! Have a fun time tonight. And fitting in that time together can be tough. A mentor mom from my MOPs group used to have candlelight dinners once the kids were asleep. Sometimes, especially when there are little ones involved, you have to take what you can get.

  3. Yay for date nights! We have a 4 yr old and a 5 month old so we're in the same 'hardly get any alone time with one another' boat. The plus side is we really cherish the time we do get with just us! maybe God is showing us how to truly value the others company:)
    have fun tonight!!

  7. My hubby and I don't get a lot of date nights either! We have two little ones and work opposite shifts through the week. Dates are so important though, so we try to make them happen when we can! In the mean time, we have this really funny Bieber fight going on.. haha! It makes us laugh :) Have a fabulous time on your date night, I have to wait until Sunday! xo

  8. Yay! So glad y'all get to get out!

    We don't have very exciting date nights anymore either, but that's really okay. Sometimes dinner and a walk around Target with Starbucks coffee is just perfect.

  13. chris looks like a movie star!
    shawn and i have the same thing about date nights. part of it is money. no money for a sitter or only having a couple of sitters that we even trust to put them to bed. that's really only shawn's parents and they live 45 mins away.
    we have thought about lunch dates on thursdays, the day i work at the cottage, because the sitter is already at the house!

  14. I definitely agree. I am about to have our 2nd child, (literally! My due date is tomorrow) and I know my husband and I have to be way more intentional about this! We are so happy and free after we get some time alone. :)

  21. Have fun! I think as married people we often forget to 'invest' in our relationships... Take your time and enjoy that evening together...
