Joel and I started our Project 52: Date Night this past Friday. Being so religious in all other aspects of our lives, this one thing was actually given a bit of freedom, in that we choose Friday as our date night, even though we know that there is a standing conflict. Hey, 40 is better than none and maybe we'll change the night of that one week and do something special, like, leave the house :D
So we got dressed, I even put on some makeup and made my hair look extra crazy. I did my nails, Joel picked out our evening events. We made a fru-fru coffee drink together which was really tasty. You can find the recipe here. And then we watched one of the movies that I picked up from Target for Valentine's day. It was one of those four films for nine bucks things and it was the Ocean's trilogy (Ocean's 11, 12 and 13) as well as the original 1960's version of Ocean's 11. It was a great movie. There were scenes in it that were obviously ad libbed, because they were just so wonderful. The Rat Pack was top notch and Shirley MacLaine even has a cameo with Dean Martin in which she looks just like that Renée Zellweger in Bridget Jone's Diary.
It was all in all a very pleasant date night. But I must admit, other than the earrings and makeup, it was not much different than any other night around here. I'm taking March as my month to plan and we'll see how things play out from there.
