This week’s date was split into two parts. Since we were snowed in last weekend (Valentine’s Day weekend) we celebrated V-day on Monday. We went back to our original Valentine’s date plan of going out to eat and having my parents babysit. Yes, it’s nice having my parents nearby. Lesson #1: Better late than never, right?
For our night out, we ate at Red Lobster. Courtesy of Nathan’s sister who sent us gift cards to Red Lobster for Christmas. I can have seafood all day, even if it’s Red Lobster. I spent most of my childhood on islands that had fresh seafood available. Then walked around Target and Kohl’s. Got home in time to put the kiddos to bed. Lesson #2: Even though Nathan dreads retail stores, he was willing to go with me. That’s love.
Then Friday rolled around, we were in the routine of doing date nights on Fridays that we spent some time playing a few games of Yahtzee after the girls went to bed. I won. Then he won. We called it good. Lesson #3: Now that we are week 8 of 52 of Project 52: Date Nights, it is becoming a habit. Yay!
Nathan said: The Valentine’s Day dinner was a nice break from the stay-at-home dates. It was refreshing to get out of the house without the kids and go to dinner on our own schedule. I’m thankful the V-day date counted as a date because thinking and planning dates is more work than I expected. Game night was fun and I was amazed at how many games of Yahtzee we’ve played over the years. At least a hundred games!
