Two of my favorite words on the planet.
It was so fun to go out with my handsome man last night. We started with dinner at Settebello, and the pizzas were fantastic, even though I think next time we'd be okay to split one. :) After dinner, the tiny ice skating rink right outside the restaurant was just too tempting, so we decided to give it a go. And I'm so glad we did! I was wearing heels and needed socks...but conveniently there was a Claire's next door there so we went in and I found a pair of neon, polkadot knee-highs. The most low-key there, believe it or not. ;) While I picked my socks I caught Adam checking out the sunglasses...oh, there were some keepers. So we decided to model a few before making my purchase. Ha! We were the only ones in the store and both laughing uncontrollably at each other...love that we can be goofs together.
We rented our skates and stepped onto the rink that was lit up with a snowflake-shaped spot light and surrounded by trees wrapped in lights. Oh-so romantic...even with middle school boys schooling us on their skates at we went around the rink and spun around circles doing our best not to fall on our tushes. Neither of us had gloves, but the hand that was holding his was always warm. :) At one point Adam held both of my hands in his, brought them to his face and slowly breathed on them...warmed my hands right up, and put butterflies in my stomach. Reminded me of when we were dating in Rexburg. It was during the holidays that I fell in love with him, and I love him more today than ever.
After picking Brooks and Ava up from our sweet friend Penny, knowing they had such a fun time with her and her darling girls, it felt so good to tuck them both in and be home sweet home with our little family. I'm going to make date nights with my forever sweetheart happen more often...it gave me a sweet emotional boost, reminded me how much I love Adam and how lucky I am to be his wife, and how much I adore our crazy Littles (it was only 2 hours and I missed them!). Yep, one date night did all that. :)
