Happy hump day all! I’m so happy its Wednesday because that means that all the bowling nights for the week are over (Dennis bowls in two weekly leagues, one on Monday and one on Tuesday) and we can have a nice relaxing night at home. Our “relaxing nights at home” normally consist of catching up on the shows that we watch together. I know some people might say that you can’t really connect while watching TV, and that might be true, but it’s time that we’ve both come to enjoy. We still talk it’s not like we just sit there like complete zombies with our eyes glued to the TV.
Today I’m really loving the new blog that I stumbled across but haven’t had a chance to fully look through yet. The Dating Divas is a blog full of fun ideas for dates with your husband/significant other. I can’t wait to start looking through them and trying some of them. I think that it would be a lot of fun to start a new tradition with Dennis and I, either now or after the wedding. I’d like to do a monthly date night where we do something we don’t always do. We really don’t go out to the movies very often so I’m totally ok with something like that, but I’d also like to use it as a way to get us to think outside of the box. I’m really excited because I think The Dating Divas blog would be a great place to find new ideas! They have ideas for just the two of you, group dates, themed dates, romantic dates, adventurous dates, dates at home and dates out on the town. I love that there are ideas for everyone and every mood. Whether you’re the kind of couple that likes to go out or stay in. Whether you’re feeling adventurous or romantic. There are ideas that you’re sure to love!
Today I’m loving the book that I just finished listening to. I can’t remember if I’ve mentioned lately how hooked I am to listening to audio books while I’m at work. I found out that I can download audio books for free through my local library. I just finished listening to Oceans Apart by Karen Kingsbury. This was the first book that I’ve read by Karen Kingsbury and to be honest I was a little worried because she is classified as a “christian author” and I wasn’t really in the mood for a super religious book. I was so not disappointed! The book was amazing. There was mention of religion but not too much, at least for me. The book was about an airline pilot that had an affair with a flight attendant and had fathered a son that he knows nothing about. When the flight attendant is killed in a plane crash it is revealed that in her will she asks that, before her son be turned over to the state, he spend two weeks with his father. The book follows the journey of the little boy, the pilot and his family as they get to know each other and attempt to heal. I would totally recommend reading it!
