Date Night

Sorry that I haven't blogged in FOREVER, but seriously, not working any more you may think, "WOW she has way more time to blog and craft and read." But in reality, nope not true.  I seriously am reading and studying all afternoon before I pick Chris up from work around 6:30p.m. However, I wanted to post about our really most recent date night.

Chris works quite a bit, including a full shift of 9:30a.m. to 3:00p.m. on Saturdays.  So, I am by myself... a lot and get lonely quite a bit too.  So we hadn't been on a real date in awhile because usually we just want to lay around the house and relax.

I usually make a lunch of Chris and I recently bought him his own lunch box.  On this particular day I thought I'd sent along with his lunch a little note asking him out on a date of dinner, movie, and ice cream. Please do not take notice of my bad spelling, it has never been a strength of mine.

I made this really yummy vegetable minestrone soup that I have been wanting to make for awhile.  After I picked him up from work we had a nice dinner with one another at home and then headed to the movies for "Rise of the Planet of the Apes."

Look at all that yummy veggieness and pasta!
I didn't get any pictures at the movie theatre but here is one of us at TCBY hittin' up the Fro Yo.

The movie and such was on a Thursday and the next day Friday the date kinda continued.  We attend a Florida State Volleyball game (FYI all games are FREE TO ALL).  It was WAY fun and I got a free shirt out of it. The game was apart of a tournament they were having.
While we were there across the way (basically the other side of the court from where we were sitting) We saw some FSU basketball players.  

Quick side story.  We went to a basketball game last year that was during the Winter break from school against Stetson (no one was there, very empty).  However, sitting behind us was EJ Manuel (FSU quaterback) and Chris asked me if we could go up there and if he could take a picture with him for his Dad.  I was too nervous and felt silly so I said no... and then EJ Manuel left and Chris was sad.  I promised him next time we see him or any one else that he would like to take a picture with I would let him.  So here is Chris with Bernard James in the white and Michael Snear in the the blue.  FYI they were all standing on the floor, that's all natural height in those boys (including Chris, haha!)

They played Kentucky and as you can see by the score they pretty much dominated the whole time.  Seriously you should go check out a volleyball game they are way fun and exciting.

With my new found or sometimes lost time I'll try and keep up.  We did just finally signed for our new home and will be moving in this week so I'll have that to blog about for sure.  Have a great Sabbath Day!


  1. Cute note in the lunch box idea!

  3. I'm definitely gonna need the recipe for that soup. It sounds delish and I've been wanting to make homemade soup, but don't know how. Also, I wanna see pictures of your new house!!!
