Project 52: Date Night week before last

Last week I was out of town and I left on the day that I normally post about our dates, so this is from that week, if I can remember what we did....

We had a super low key date night because there was an event at the church on Friday night and Saturday day and Hannah and I were leaving on the following Monday, oh yeah and I helped with coffee hour at church that Sunday.  A much busier weekend than what we are accustomed to to say the least. 

I dropped by the dollar bin at Target again and picked up a little Toy Story game book with the special marker that makes things appear on the pages.  It was actually a lot of fun.  We went through the entire book and talked a little smack in some of the games, even though the majority of them are luck of the color.  It was nice to have a little respite and coloring on such a busy weekend. 

It is a new month and the ownership of the date night should switch to Joel.  His birthday is this weekend, so I might have to make up for missing last week with a really nice night this week.  I bought a Jenga the other day and thought we might try our hand at truth or Jenga one of these nights. 

Thanks for dropping by!  I look forward to reading around for some great ideas!

  1. We're stuggling for date night mojo at the moment - just lack of time - but at least remembering this means that we are talking more than before. Every minute counts! xo

  2. I am all for low-key. We can't be brillant every date! (Thankfully) We have just had our 20th and I feel like we have done it all already. I guess we just have to start over again. Happy birthday Joel.

I really like making bread.  It's fun to get your hands dirty, but I understand that yeast is a scary thing for people who don't have experience with it.  Somehow, I started using it when I was young and too immature to understand the fear that comes along with wasting time, money and energy.  I had time and energy in abundance.  My first real forte into baking was in the 7 th grade.  I must have cooked before then because I choose to see which flour rose the highest using a cinnamon roll recipe.  I made a lot of cinnamon rolls that year and when I turned in my report, there were questions asked of me that I had no idea what she meant.  Questions about the weather and the heat of the oven.  Things that I didn't know could make a difference in the baking of bread.  Lots has happened since that first memorable baking.  Today, I invited a friend over to make bread.  I was kind of concerned about the strength of the yeast, because we bought a huge stash of it last year someti

Sweet Caroline by Kelda Poynot

  First off, my copy of Sweet Caroline  (aff link) is not a gifted review book, I spent my well earned Amazon No-Rush Rewards money on this book. Second of all, this is not my standard close door kind of romance. Third of all, this is a really fun read. Caroline is a hard working young lady that is doing all that she can to make ends meet and to get her graduate degree. Part of that work is renting out the room above her garage. When she answers the phone of an unknown number, believing it's a future tenant, she has no idea how much her life is about to change.  The young man on the other end of that call, Hashim, is tall, dark, and mysterious in all the right ways. The story quickly moves from the girl next door falling for a stranger to a fight for their lives. And in true real life fashion, those fights aren't just with external enemies but the ones we carry within.  It's an entertaining story of Caroline and Hashim, discovering their love for each other and fighting to

Project 52: Good Friday is low key

We had a wonderful Holy week, full of celebrations, one of my favorites was the Good Friday celebration.  But it was emotionally and physically draining.  By the time that evening rolled around, we weren't up for much of anything.  We ended up having a game night on our bed with crackers, cheese and salami.  It was fun, we played cribbage, and In a Pickle (which we determined is not for two people with little to no brain power).  I'm looking forward to this Friday because Joel is off the entire week, which should mean more energy and maybe something creative!
