That’s what I’m told you are supposed to yell when you are golfing and you are trying to warn people. I’ve tried golfing…we’ll leave it at that. Tyler loves to golf. Golfing however doesn’t really fit into our dating with coinage theme. Thus our golf date didn’t involve a normal golf course.
We started by playing a round of Wii golf. Tyler for sure won. He’s a great golfer! I don’t have patience for things that don’t come to me naturally.
We then built our own miniature golf course holes. Here’s what they looked like
Here are the competitors
After we had the holes constructed we played mini golf. I must admit our holes were a little advanced, but they were fun!
We ended the evening with a good laugh. Here’s a link to the video that made us laugh 🙂
This week it was Tyler’s turn for a date. During the day I called Tyler at work. He picked up on the fact that I was not having the greatest day ever. Ty is such a sweetie and brought me flowers. After putting our little girl to bed we started our date that he termed a “pamper Heather date.” It was just what I needed. We started our date by slow dancing and reminiscing. After that we watched one of my all time favorite movies, Pride and Prejudice. Tyler had never seen it and told me that he had never had a desire to see it (what a good guy). During the movie Tyler gave me a massage and we snacked on some of my favorite Easter candy that Tyler picked up on the way home. I know this date may not seem creative or new, but it was exactly what I needed after a rough day!
Our daughter will be ready to move from her crib to a big girl bed in a few months. It is an exciting time! We are trying to get ready with some “new” furniture for her room. First we headed on over to IKEA for an end table. They have these great little tables for only $10. We have a dresser from when my husband was a little boy. We decided to update it. So when we were at IKEA we look for new handles also. We’re still debating about whether or not we want to paint or refinish the dresser. We did find a couple of websites that would help if we do decide to paint. Here they are:
In my head the title was to the tune of the Snow song from “White Christmas.” We don’t know about you, but we’ve actually had some snow this year. We decided to go on a snow theme date. First we would like to introduce you to Phoebe and Bob. These are the snowmen we made. I’m not a huge fan of cold so we brought some snow inside to make our snowmen. We then decided to watch them melt. As you can see we weren’t very patient so we decided to speed things along. We got the idea from the following website http://handsonaswegrow.com/32-snow-snowflakes-snowmen-its-all-about-the-snow/ To end the evening we made some good old fashioned paper snow flakes that we are going to use to decorate our house with. Our date was a fun, warm way to enjoy the snow.
We don’t know about you, but one of our favorite parts of the holidays is all the lights and decorations. This date was simple, but a blast. We drove around to some of our favorite spots with lights. Near us there is a street that puts up the story of the nativity. There is also a circle that is named Christmas Street. Every house on the street decorates. It is a great time to chat and reminiscence.
