Friday night was date night! The kids were at the church for Parent's Night Out and Lance and I had a few hours to ourselves. The question was....what are we going to do? Usually, I've had these evenings planned way ahead of time - that's just how I am - a planner. But, this time I was feeling a little puny and not completely in the mood. It seems we weren't the only parents feeling this way. A quick survey in the church hallway was that no one had a clue what they were going to do!
So, Lance and I went and had a pedicure together. I LOVE pedicures. Lance had never had one. I wasn't sure if he'd be up for it, but he was! The massage chairs are great. We got to have an hour long conversation with no interruptions - it was awesome! Now, some guys have been making fun of Lance, but I think they are the ones missing out!
After our relaxing pedicures, we went and had dinner and then headed to Hastings to pick out a movie for the next evening. We rented Juno. Very quirky, but very well done! Has a little of the Napoleon Dynamite vibe to it, if you know what I mean.
All in all, a great date night. No movie (which is normally our favorite thing to do) and yet we had great conversation. The type of conversation that is very hard to have around our house until 10pm and I'm a zombie. It was great to have conversation when I'm still awake and can piece thoughts together!
Yeah for date nights!
