Date Night

Justin and I don't get out a whole lot. There are a lot of reasons for that, but we got to have a date night. Even better than that it is practically free!

My little sister, can I still call her little? I guess so, since I'm still a little taller than she is. Anyway, she gave us a gift card to TGI Friday's for Christmas.

Isn't that a cute box? We haven't been big on going out lately, as it includes three small children and Justin's dietary restrictions, but tonight was the perfect night.

A local ministry, MarriageVine, sponsored a community date night. It was a lovely night out. They had childcare set up for us and a short time of preparation to start couples' conversations with a short questionnaire. Ninety minutes was allotted for date time--enough time to chat, but not enough for a movie--probably intentionally.

Justin and I obviously had dinner while we chatted. It was odd to be out and not have anyone else to occupy us. There were no dinners to cut up other than our own and no one to entertain until the food came. We got to have a nice talk though--everything from the kiddos to chemistry and back again.

We were slightly rushed at dinner, simply because the location wasn't horribly close to the church and our dinner took a little longer to come than we had expected. We were able to finish and get back in time, we just had more conversation before dinner and not so much while we were eating.

A nice night out! Thanks Hol & MarriageVine!

Glad to hear you had a good time away from the kiddos.
