Date night of the year!


I am adding a goal to my list of New Year's resolutions and I think you're gonna like it ...

I resolve to blog more about the goings on in my life. My friends, family, Bill and I are always doing fun stuff and I always take pictures and I think about blogging about it, but then ... the blogging about it just doesn't happen!  So, in an effort to share more with you all while also creating a virtual memory lane, I will write about the shenanigans we find ourselves in these days!

First up: Date night of the year.

Bill and I's first date in 2013 was Friday night. We originally planned on him coming over to my place and watching movies or something before I had to go to my work overnight at 10:30 (ugh).

Instead, around 4pm he calls and asks if I remember when he told his best friend and his friend's 4 year old son that we would go to Monster Jam with them on the 4th. Monster Jam is a .... Monster Trucks Rally! I laughed, and usually being up for anything, said sure, let's go!

 

So, for the first date of the year we attended a monster truck rally and watched loud, ginormous trucks jump over cars, flip over, lose wheels and, in general, be really obnoxious. But, you know what?


It was AWESOME! I would definitely go again. :)


What is the best or most memorable date you have been on?

That sounds really fun! I am glad you had a fun date night! Phil and I are such home bodies, so most of our nights are spent together, making dinner and playing cribbage. My favorite date night so far was probably when we celebrated Christmas as we make buckeyes together and just had so much fun! Later this month I am hoping that we can go ice skating at there is this free rink up in St. Paul until early February!

How fun! I can't say that I've ever been on that kind of date, but when you're with someone who makes you happy (and you love seeing happy) I don't think it matters where you are! I love date nights and cannot wait to get back to them soon!! Glad to see you with a huge smile on your face girl; you deserve it!

Monster trucks are a blast! Great date night.

That does sound fun! Sometimes doing the most random things together can be the best. Eric and I definitely need to do more date nights. We have become SUCH home bodies over the last year. Partly due to us trying to save money but also because we've gotten a bit lazy. lol

Sounds really fun. My bf and I usually do date days and spend the entire day doing this and that.

Haha that sounds pretty hilarious actually! Glad you had fun :) Probably my favorite thing in the world is just doing something fun with Eric and it's usually something pretty random. I like relaxing at home but since we live together we do that most nights so it's fun to plan something a little different to do on a Saturday.

I don't think I've ever to a monster truck rally. And by that I mean I've never been, but I could see how with the right person it could be fun.

As for the random-est date, early on with the boy I and were dating he took me to a horse track, which in itself would have been random. But her parents were there that night, and it's the first time I met them as well.

That looks like fun! Hey, I think I went to an arena football game at that stadium where you are!

How fun! I've always seen the commercials for these when they come to town but I've never been!
