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.

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast. Stories from the Kitchen Season 2, Episode 2: Taste and See Notes from the episode: Taste and See by Margaret Feinberg Dad’s New York Cheesecake (from the back of a Philidelphia Cream Cheese package) 1 ⅞ cups graham cracker crumbs ¼ to ½ cup butter, melted 1 cup sugar, divided 2 lbs cream cheese (4 packs) 2 large eggs (lightly beaten) 1 tsp vanilla 2 tbsp cornstarch 1 cup sour cream Preheat oven to 450F Mix well graham crackers, 2 tbsp sugar, and enough butter that the mixture holds together.

Our Daily Question from Ink & Willow

Did you ever have a book that you love so much because it's just right? That's Our Daily Question for me. It's a three-year journal to share with your significant other. How does that work? Well, each calendar date has a question and divided space to record your answer three times.  There is a great mix of fun, serious, thought-provoking, and heartfelt questions. Generally, the only ones that we've skipped over have been the ones that talk about all the time. It's been nice to be able to pick it up with morning coffee and have a conversation ready to go. Some we've even used at the dinner table to have family discussions.  It's a wonderful little keepsake, one that will have much more value when you finish with it than when you start. If you're looking for a special gift to give a newly married couple, yourself, or even a pair of love birds that have been married for over 20 years, this is a great choice.  I received a copy of this book from Ink & W

Project 52: Shiver me dufuses

This date I pulled out a puzzle that I had bought for Joel years ago.  I put up a little camp table , and even devised a system to keep the pieces in place with some fabric, so we could roll it up and stow it.  I was all ready to go and then the reality of the puzzle set in and I realised, I don't like puzzles.  I was already frustrated and worn out by the darn thing and we were only a mere few minutes into working on it!  Instead of getting upset, we changed plans. The puzzle was abandoned and Joel went out for a shamrock shake from McD's and two cherry pies.  We played some MadLibs .  The one we bought for Hannah today was Pirate themed and the story that was the funniest included a peg elbow and a pet pencil sitting on your shoulder saying "Shiver me dufuses!" We even had a joke book that we'd picked up for Hannah and read a couple of terrible jokes to one another while shuffling cards for cribbage. A fun night full of laughter and green shakes.  Well, I&#
