A Long Overdue Date

With the baby just around the corner we decided that we needed to try to have sometime for ourselves before she comes.  Blake had Friday off of work so we decided to spend the day relaxing and enjoying the time together.  I was really hoping for a sunny day so that we could go to the horse park and have a picnic…but it rained and stormed all day long.  We headed out of the house early to get breakfast.  While at breakfast we tried to decide what to do since it was going to rain all day.

With not many options to choose from we decided on going to see a movie.  This is something we have said we needed to do before the baby came because we have never been to the theater together.  We dated for 8 long months long distance so the things we could do were just over the phone.  We did watch movies over the phone by syncing a dvd to start on our computers at the same time.  Sounds weird but it worked and when you are apart for 8 months you will do anything to spend time together and try to make things feel normal!

After getting married we couldn’t justify spending the money to go see a movie when we enjoyed the comfort of watching one at home.  So with the rain we decided to have a traditional movie date before the baby comes.  We watched Knowing which was very good!  It was nice because we catch an early show time and so there were only a couple of other people in the theater.

After the movie we went to a few stores to look for some deals on a few baby items that we still need.  We didn’t really find anything so then we headed to dinner.  We ate a quick dinner at Steak n Shake; Blake had never been there before.  We shared a milk shake after dinner and then headed home.  We spent the rest of the night like a few teenagers playing video games all night.  We had just gotten Mario Cart for the Wii and battled it out all night.  We had so much fun!  We must have really decided we could still act like teenagers because we ordered a very late greasy pizza at 10:30.  We had a fun time but the next day realized we just can’t eat like that anymore.

So I guess now we are completly ready for this baby.

  3. Wooof! What a fun day! Mommy and Daddy go horsey back riding. I am sorry it stormed, I run and hide when it does. I don’t get to go to movie theatres but Im glad you had fun. It’s good you went before the baby cause after you will have to justify paying a babysitter on top of the tickets!! BOL Steak sounds yummy and I think I saw Mommy lick her lips over a milk shake! I sure hope the baby comes soon! I promise not to bark at her like I do other babies and kids!
