Props to Matt and I for getting in 2 date nights in one month! One weekend as a matter of fact. (I guess it was a slow weekend on our social calendar.)
Our October date night didn’t actually happen until November, so we were pressed to have 2 dates in the ever-so-hectic month of December.
These date nights were very low-key and involved staying in and chilling in front of the TV. Sounds like most people’s weeknights, but we don’t really watch TV together so, yes, it was an event.
On a Saturday night we had a movie night where we made popcorn and tea and settled into watching The Dark Knight rises together.
Except The Dark Knight didn’t rise since the version we downloaded was a dud. So instead we watched The Muppets’ Christmas Carol!
I swear I didn’t sabotage the Batman movie. (Really, I didn’t!) But I can’t say I wasn’t thrilled to watch the Muppets instead.
Date night and knocking off an item from my Winter Bucket List? Peeer-fect!
The next day, Matt and I had an afternoon date of a home tailgate party. I cooked up some mini grilled cheese sandwiches, and some baked chicken wings, which Matt loved (yay!). . .and we watched the Lions game.
I’ll reluctantly admit that football is growing on me now that I’m learning more about how the game is played, and who the players are, and which teams are good and which ones are crap. Weeks ago, I even called Minnesota to make the playoffs, which BTW, they did.
I used to not give a shit at all and now I’m mildly interested. But only in the last couple of minutes. And only if the score is close.
You all should be impressed (and by ‘you all’ I mostly mean Matt. . . and maybe my dad).
It’s funny the things you can learn if you actually pay attention when your husband talks about football.
The Lions lost. Surprise, surprise.
It’s nice that we got in our date night in December because now that the playoffs are coming up I’ll be a football widow for the next couple of weekends.
