This post is actually for two different dates. The first date Tyler called a “Heather’s favorites date.” We started off the date with him giving me a massage. It was much needed after all the work we’ve been doing in our yard. To finish the night ate popcorn and watched a chick flick. I was having a hard time coming up with a good date idea last week so I stole Ty’s idea and we had a “Ty’s favorites date.” We played a video game of Ty’s choice, because it is not very often that I consent to play video games with Ty. In fact Tyler asked me the next day if I wanted to play a video game and I told him I was at my limit for the month. We made Ty’s favorite caramel popcorn that we’ve posted in a previous post. Finally we watched a movie of his choice. Totally simple dates, but we love to just spend time together it doesn’t really matter what we do 🙂
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!
To start this date off, we dug into our costume supply and created some interesting ensembles, which can be seen below. This date was themed around Garfield’s Halloween Adventure. In honor of Garfield, we had lasagna for dinner while in costume. We then donned another set of amazing costumes and watched the Garfield Halloween movie. This is another holiday classic.
