My first date of the day was with a dreamy guy. He has these gorgeous brown eyes, big full lips, beautiful smile. He's sweet, kind, and keeps me laughing all the time. He's my son, Justus. :)

I sent him an invite, hinting at the things I had planned. He figured about half of it out. We started out by making a pitt stop at Walmart to pick up something for my SECOND date for that day (good thing he's not the jealous sort!). Made a swing through Goodwill so he could see if anything caught his eye... nothing really did. Then we headed on over to Santo Coyote. This is Justus's favorite restaurant. Mine too, if we're eating Mexican. If you haven't... you should seriously check it out. YUM! They truly have the best cheese dip ever.

Once we left the Heifer village, we (ok *I*) decided to head down to the River Market area. He's been wanting to walk across the Junction Bridge for quite some time, so that's the first thing we did. We didn't walk the whole way across the river. Just over the Little Rock side. ;) I made him pose for a bunch of pictures while up there tho. Poor boy. ;) I kind of wish I had taken him all the way across, but oh well. Maybe next time. :) It was interesting to see just how many people ride their bikes across tho!!!
About the only thing we didn't do that I *tentatively* had planned, was the Nature Center. I promised him we'd hit that on another day. I did buy him a strawberry shake on the way home to make up for it. ;)
Once I got home, and the kids went to bed, I broke out my purchases from earlier that day. I decided that I'd have a "no no" date... one that I don't plan on doing often. But it wasn't our typical date night, so this was a bonus date anyway (well, and we never had a TRUE date night last week, tho we spent several nights playing games together). Anyway I bought the movie Courageous for us to watch. We had never seen it, but had been looking forward to it for quite some time. I must say this is a terrific movie, and all we had expected it to be! I love it, and encourage everyone to watch it. But even better than the movie, was snuggling on the couch with my baby... We enjoyed it so much, when Courageous was over, we put on another movie and just continued to snuggle. <3 Tonight, my kids are reaping the benifits of date nights. 2 kids are watching Courageous (one on dvd and one on blueray), 1 is watching Fireproof, and 1 is watching Facing the Giants. I love their taste in movies! :)
Another great week for date nights!! I hope you are all dating up a storm too. Trust me... it's so worth it!
