Going on a date!
Well technically it's not a date, it's a wedding, but my hubby and I so rarely get a chance to go out and do something just the two of us, that we're considering it a date! It's funny. We were talking about it last night and he said, "I can't wait to dance with my wife this weekend". As soon as the words left his mouth I realized two things. First of all, my hubby rocks and he always knows the best things to say without even trying and second, this will be the first time we've danced with each other since OUR wedding almost seven years ago. That is WAY too long to go without dancing with your spouse!
It's so hard to make the time to get away with jobs, responsibilities, kids. It seems like so much work some times that we just eventually gave up trying. Plus, we're picky about who we leave our kids with. They don't really stay with anyone besides my mom or my husbands mom and both our mothers are still working, his mom has two jobs so it makes it hard for them to have time to babysit. I mean, they've stayed with a friend of mine for a couple hours a couple of times, but that's always a day thing because she has children and a husband of her own. My nieces and nephew used to babysit, but now they're too into their own thing than to babysit on a Saturday night.
So, needless to say, we're really looking forward to this wedding on Saturday. Not only do we get to see my husband's cousin marry a great guy, but we get a date night out of it too! We vowed to try and start making this happen more often. Hopefully, we'll stick to it this time.
Do you have date nights with your spouse?
