Awesome Anniversary Date (+ Some Fun for the Little One)

Hey, guys.  Hope y'all had a good weekend.

DK and I just celebrated six years of marriage.  Not sure how I got so lucky, but I certainly realize that I am.  I often joke that when I first met DK (almost 11 years ago), I knew he'd be my husband and the father of my kid(s). That's actually a true story.  Not sure how I knew it (at 18 years old, I should add), but I did.  Good instincts!

DK can make me madder than anyone else on this planet, but he can also make me smile bigger than anyone.  The latter far outweighs the former, so I guess I'll keep him around. Ha! All jokes aside -- I love DK so much, and I'm so glad God chose him for me.  (Now.  Enough of all the mushy stuff.  Plus if he finds out I put this on my blog, he's gonna totally make fun of me. Have I ever told you that he makes fun of me and my blogging sometimes?  It's hilarious!)

Anyhoo, we celebrated by going to dinner and a movie (thanks to my sweet in-laws, who were happy to keep the little one for us).  We ate at one of our new favorite spots and saw the Spiderman movie (SO good).  Let me tell you the best part of our anniversary date, though (which pretty much confirms that I'm officially a grown-up):  we had a little downtime between the dinner and movie, so we planned to use it to start the search for a new dishwasher (ours died six months ago).  Both of us HATE shopping, so we quickly found a few that were in our price range, read online reviews, made a choice, bought the thing, and set a delivery date.  All in a matter of an hour!  Dishwasher will be here next week!  The fact that we were able to go to dinner and a movie AND purchase an appliance for our house in one evening makes it the best date ever!

Anyhoo, the little one had some fun this weekend, too.  We took her to Chuck E. Cheese's Friday night.  She wasn't feeling it at first, but she eventually found a few games she liked (she apparently enjoyed it more when she went
in 2010 with my sisters).  Of course she loved meeting the mouse (again).  I didn't realize how inexpensive this place was.  I found a coupon online and was able to feed all three of us and get her 30 tokens (more than enough for a kid her age) for less than $20.  Not bad! (Join their e-club to get this particular coupon.  My favorite coupon site also has some good ones.)

Anyhoo, add in a birthday party on Sunday (my kid's the one picking her nose on the group pic), and it was a pretty fun weekend!  Hope you had a good one, too!

  1. Happy Anniversary again!
    On date nights we always find ourselves looking around at Lowe's or Home Depot so I guess that makes us old too.
