David and I went on a cruise a few weeks ago. We had a blast (I'm sure I'll post about this more later), we have desperately needed to reconnect. A LOT of things have changed for us in the last 27 months! This was our first time away since becoming parents -- my first night away from my kids other than when I was in the hospital giving birth to Kru! We decided we needed to have more date nights, go away for a night or two a couple of times a year and save the big trips to do with the kids. We did NEED this cruise and wouldn't have traded it for the world but we just kept seeing things we wish we could have shared with the kids. David's family loves to go on cruises so I'm sure we'll go again soon and will get to share it with our kids, I can't wait!
Anyway, as I said, we want to do more date nights. I was planning one for David -- one I knew HE would love -- a LOST series finale date night. I woke up one morning and decided to do it that night, so it was kind of thrown together but come off really well. I got all my ideas from this great website The Dating Divas, they are a bunch of married women that give ideas on how to date your hubby. I love it!
So, our date...
I planned on doing a few theme things for David and I to enjoy after the kids went to bed but as I was getting ready I realized the girls would really enjoy a lot of this, too. So, I decided we would have a family night first, put the kids to bed, and then we'd have our date night time. It was a great night!!
Our "Dharma" stuff. Food, a manual (love notes from all of us), a gift which was a shirt with the Dharma symbol:
Then the kids went to bed, we turned on the season finale and drank our Dharma White Wine. :o) Good times.
