Mid-Week Date Night

Today after work I completed Day 2 of the 2nd week of the Couch to 5K. I have to say today was a bit harder than the others have been, I was hoping that it wouldn't be hard for awhile but today kinda kicked my butt. But I am still planning on sticking with it, it feels good to accomplish each day.

After my run on the treadmill when I fully looked like a sweaty hot-mess Luke and I took a little break from our busy regular routine of TV watching, blog surfing and guitar playing and and went out for a little date night.

As you may know tonight was the night of the Country Music Awards and I have had it written in my planner for about a month now.

Yes, I record future TV shows in my planner so that I won't forget them.

But the hubs wanted to go on a date night and I like spending time with him so I decided it would be a good way to spend the night.

However if the DVR was not invented I'm not sure I would have so quickly agreed to this date night.

First we made a stop at a yummy Italian restaurant which was so good.After knowing this boy for six years I am still amazed at how he can arch his eyebrows like thatAfter dinner we headed to a college worship service.

It was during this service that I realized several things:

1. EVERY girl in college has a North Face jacket
2. Facebook has taken over the world
3. I miss college
4. I'm also glad college is over
5. I am O.L.D.

It was so nice to worship next to my husband. Usually he is on stage leading worship so the times that I get to stand next to him are few and far between. I absolutely love those moments.

Sometimes I wish we were 'normal' and could ride to church together, leave in the same car, sit next to each other etc. But then I remember that this is a calling on our lives and I feel ok.

I guess I could ride to church with Luke if I woke up at 6am on Sunday morning. We all know that's not happening anytime soon.

It was a fun night spontaneous date night with this cute guy. I am thankful for a great husband!

Even though he does have some unsightly hair above his lip that I'm praying will fall out since he does not plan on shaving it anytime soon.

Don't mind the mint in my mouth, I was out of gum.

Now I'm watching the CMA's at 11:00pm. Maybe I'm not as old as I think.

Wait, considering 11:00pm late and only staying up to watch an awards show?

Yes, I am definitely old.

What a fun date night!! You guys are so cute!

I love spontaneous date nights!!

Rachel said...

We went on a date on Tuesday night, and I agree. Mid week date nights are better than the ones on the weekend! We've also found that a lot of restaurants have better deals and specials when you go out during the week.

Good work on your couch to 5k! You're keeping me motivated!

Lauren said...

What a fun night! I just love spontaneous date nights!

Great job on your Cto5K workout! I absolutely love that feeling after a really hard run when you are all sweaty and exhausted but you completed what you set out to do. Love that. It looks like you guys had a super adorable date night-- my hubs and I need to get better about doing things like that.

I can't believe you are on week 2. I'm impressed. You're right, every college kid has a northface jacket.

THE Stephanie said...

Wanna know how I know I'm OLD???? What's a Northface Jacket? LOL

UGH!!!

And that pic of Luke with the spaghetti seriously made me laugh. Good one.

Faith said...

How fun! Y'all are just darling and I'm so glad that you had a fun, spontaneous date night. I loved the part where you talked about worshipping beside your husband - so precious!

I am praying for y'all and the calling that God has placed on your lives. Love you girl!

Lindsay said...

I am on the exact same page as you with the worship thing! My husband is a worship pastor also and your thoughts on going to church at the same time, etc. are my exact thought processes! ha! But you're right, in the end you remember the calling.

So glad y'all had a great date night!! :)

Becca said...

Looks like fun! :-) Dvr is totally the best . . . and you should see my hubby's facial hair. It is seriously out of control.

Brown Eyed Girl said...

Aww I love it! It's so fun to have a date night during the week. We always seem to save them for Friday/Saturday nights but it's nice to mix it up a little! You guys are so cute and your dinner looks delicious!! Nothing like cheesy pasta!

Kelley said...

can you share the plan behind the couch to 5k? cause my fat clothes aren't fitting anymore!

and on the whole feeling old thing....when I explain to my middle schoolers that I remember what they feel like at that age, and then I have to say that it was like 10 years ago

ahhh i'm so old!

From VA to CA said...

Megan said...

My fiance is a youth pastor in OKC (i'm three hours away from him) and I am already bummed about not being able to drive to church with him on sundays!!

RN Mama said...

Girl, you are not even close to old!

Oh, and I hate to tell you this...but, every girl every where has a North Face jacket! I'm 30 (gasp), so I'm not even close to being a cool college girl, and I have 3! Yikes!
