It Felt Like a First Date

This past Friday night Aaron and I got to go out on an actual, honest to goodness, just the two of us date! It had been too long...almost 3 years too long...since we'd been out for fun together on a real life date (we'd been out together to different group events sans kids, but even those had been few and far between) and seriously, it felt like a first date...the awkward silences, trying to figure out what to say to each other, wondering if the other person liked us...haha, just kidding, but it sure did feel weird since it had been so long!

Our babysitter (sweet Miss Brianna, whom the boys have taken to pretty well) came over to watch our little dudes. As soon as Aaron was home from work we took off to catch a light dinner before going to watch the 2nd Sherlock Holmes movie...it was so good...and all in all the date was awesome!

Oh, and just to brag on my hubby he had flowers delivered to me during the day on Friday before our date...isn't that just the sweetest thing! Funny thing is, around 12:45 early Friday afternoon I had this intuitive feeling that Aaron was going to send me flowers...it just seemed like the sort of thing he would do since we were both excited about our date that night. So, when he got home I thanked him for his thoughtfulness (especially since he sent me a bouquet with two red roses in it for Johnathan and Eli and 4 white roses in it to represent our sweet children in Heaven, so double romantic points for him!). I asked Aaron when he ordered the flowers because I knew it was probably around the time I had my intuitive feeling, and sure enough, he had ordered them a little before he saw his afternoon patients at 1:00...crazy, right?!! Stuff like that has happened frequently with us so I like to think that we're connected in a cool way, haha! :)

Anyhoo, our week is off to a good start after having a nice weekend. We are enjoying this lovely weather and have been outside a bunch as a result. It's so nice to have temps in the 70's in the middle of January...only in Texas, haha!

Happy Monday to y'all!
