date night

Saturday, February 5

First we went to dinnner
PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket
and then we went shopping
PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket
We discovered a couple things about ourselves on this date night.
First, excellent conversations are started when you treat your date like it's one of your first.
Questions like, "What's one thing that you don't already know about me, but you would like to know?"
or "If you could start this whole thing over again, what would be your dream college?"
It felt like our first date or something. And ended up triggering some mega laughs.

Second, we learned that we are magnets for killer deals. Like $3 jackets and sweaters at Gap. 
They flock to us. In our exact size. In our favorite color. 
We think it's because they know they'll be kissed and tucked snugly into bed every night if they come over to our house. Or, depending on our mood, dropped on the floor and left there for a week. 
We just don't tell them that part.

I really love your bangs! I wish I had the guts to cut my hair like that, but I'm scared I won't like it. Hah.

Have you ever come across a store that doesn't want you to take photos inside? I've heard that can be the case...just curious if you've ever experienced it.

I love treating date nights like they're our first. It DOES make it more interesting! Shopping during date nights are also some of my favorites. It's always fun to see your man get dressed up in new clothes!

Whawhoooo!!! Gap sales. I love February just for that...
You guys are cute as buttons... but I have to say the picture of the close-up of the wedding ring made me sad because Matty lost his ring today... and I was thinking 'no big deal' but it is kind of a big deal, no? That ring had my name on it...
