I'm a girl who loves dates with my husband. Even though it's just the two of us, we don't spend all of our time being lovey dovey. Stuff gets in the way. Like dirty dishes or a lawn that needs to be mowed or plans to do this or that. But I have decided a long time ago that I wanted to be intentional with the time we actually do get together. Which is only the weekends, as many of you know.
Then I came upon Rebekah's Blog at A Bit Of Sunshine. You should definitely check out her blog. I guarantee you will love it.3
I prepared one of my hubby's favorite dinners and a surpise appetizer and dessert. Both he had never eaten but I just knew he would love.
While he was chipping and dipping, he hollered into the kitchen how nice this was and it smelled awful good in the kitchen! That made my heart very happy that he was enjoying himself :)
The menu was this:
Appetizer: Spinach Artichoke Dip with tortilla chips
Main Course: Amish Meat Loaf with garlic mashed potatoes and corn (I forgot the green beans!)
Dessert: Mini Kiss Pies (So delish!)
After dessert we watched A Lot Like Love. Have you seen that movie? With Ashton Kutcher and Amanda Peet? I've seen it about 17 times, give or take a few. I love it!
It was a really nice evening. And it's amazing what happens when you don't nice, intentional things for your hubby. He felt loved and appreciated and romanced :) You know how great you feel after something special has been done for you right? Do that for someone else. You won't regret it. I promise.
Happy Monday! Hope your weekend was great!
Love, The Faithful City Mouse
