This past Saturday, my husband and I hired a babysitter (for the first time in 18 months!) and went to dinner at a friend’s house.
(Side note - my husband and I work opposite shifts so any time together that we have off from work we really like to have family time, hence no date night in such a long time, but we realize that spending time together as a couple is super important which is why we found a babysitter.)
After we left our dinner date we decided to take full advantage of having a babysitter who was going to sleep over and go do something else.... here's the problem. We're sitting in our car in our friends driveway and our conversation goes like this.
Husband - "what do you want to do?"
Me - "I don’t know, what do you want to do?"
Husband - "not sure."
Me - "do you want to go to Target?"
Husband - "sure!"
So, off to Target we went. It was 9:15 pm and the store was closing at 10 so we were basically pushed out the door at 9:55 and then the same conversation ensued again..... this time, we ended up at the 24 hour CVS. Our purchases included eyeliner, a Dora book and coloring book, a couple Valentine's crafts for Olivia, a shirt for Olivia, blueberries and frozen shrimp.
Although it was pretty pathetic that we didn’t have any special place to go or do anything really exciting we had fun, held hands and talked, mostly about our girl, but she's our life. At 29 years old, this is what our lives have become and we wouldn’t change it for the world!
