a date without food

  • Please ignore the weird squares next to only some of the date ideas… formatting from facebook is a bear.  Anyway…I thought this was very entertaining and had to share for those of you NOT on facebook anymore.  A few weeks back I realized in a panic that the next night was our date but since I was on a cleanse we couldn’t eat on our date. It’s kind of our go-to…
    So, I did the normal thing and asked facebook for date ideas that didn’t include food.  Then I proceeded to crack up hysterically as the ideas rolled in.  Now, please I mean no offense- the ideas were great- but I jest because most of them were things Bart and I NEVER do…and not because we don’t have time…more because we don’t like to do them.  I guess I never realized how selective we are in our outings- but I’m okay with that.  
    The best one offered was “make out” by my old boss/pastor/friend- who also happened to do our pre-marital counseling ha!  The only other option I considered was a movie.  
    Then I started to re-evaluate and wonder if we are okay…even though we’d rather never see a mini golf course or bowling alley for the rest of our lives.  And I concluded- yes, we’re just fine.  I also realized that on our dates; now that we have children- we LOVE to sit at a restaurant with no interruptions and just talk the night away.  I love talking to my husband…about anything and everything…oddly it’s rarely about the kiddos…its just about our lives…how we think and feel…our dreams…and everything in between.  We both love to talk.  So it works out.  And we both love to eat too. Imagine that.
    Okay. I’m going to stop this random assembliage (i know it’s not a word mom- ha!) of words.  Below is the lovely list from facebook…
