Date Night, Cause That's the Way We Roll

Friday! Today, I am going to demonstrate, "How to Go on a Date With Your Husband You Have Been Married To For 22 Years". I'm sure everyone will benefit from today's lesson. Today's installment will NOT feature ridiculous amounts of children. That is NOT the way we roll....Whew! Unless you're disappointed, and then, I'm sorry.

Tonight is Date Night. And, like the recently released movie starring Steve Carell and Tina Fey, TGH and I are often concerned that our date nights lack a  Don't get me wrong, nothing more romantic than looking into one another's eyes at the Panda Express over Orange Chicken and Pepsi's but sometimes we wonder. Are we missing something here? We're not quite ready for New York and a government sex scandal (maybe next week) but maybe we ought to branch out. So far this week, we've had the following conversation, about 10 times:

TGH: Did you wanna do something this weekend? (A note here, TGH and I have gone out every Friday night for the last 15 years)
Me: Sure, what do you want to do? (note: with few exceptions, every Friday night for the last 15 years we have gone to a budget based dinner and then seen a movie)
TGH: I thought we'd have dinner, maybe see a movie. (see above 'note')
Me: Ok, sounds good.
TGH: Where should we eat?

Here's where the real excitement is. We eat at LOTS of different places! Seriously! We do! We eat everywhere, Chinese Buffets, Steak Houses, Thai shacks, Taco Huts, Burger Joints, Mexican Fiesta-rants, and Italian (I'm dying to say 'bistros' here, but that would be an outrageous lie) places (way more truthful). We've eaten at Chili's and Appleby's and Fuddruckers (the most carefully pronounced restaurant in these parts). We really pull out all the stops in choosing our pre-dollar movie eatery.

Then the movie, again, there is no limit to the kind of movie we will choose. If it's playing at the dollar movies, we will see it!

You know, I take it back, our date nights ROCK! Cause we are Mr and Mrs Date Night and that's the way we roll!

I love it! Ha. I've been married for 6 months and date nights are still difficult to plan and carry out a lot of the time. We have a date jar for quick, inexpensive date ideas. If you're interested you can check ours out here:
Or the original (way cooler how-make-one) here:
