Ok, for those of you who know us well, you know "Date Night" is a our favorite night of the week! For years now, Brian and I have had a date night once a week, whether it be just upstairs with carry-out Chinese or an actual leave the kids at home and hit the town (by town, I mean more like Rita's Italian Ice!). Well, for this stay at home momma who usually has sticky fingerprints and baby drool all over my clothes, it is an amazing treat every now and then to get a real winner of a date night, and we had one just this week! Brian had a work thing...dress up, valet parking, fancy food, handsome husband, intelligent conversation...a fun reminder that I actually am an educated adult who can mix with other intelligent adults! So what did I do just before we left home for the kid free night....I printed out a recent family photo so we could show off our little darlings to anyone who would take a look! As fun as going out is, I'll gladly keep my day job...bring on the sticky fingers and baby drool...but let me change my clothes first!
Before Brian and I were married, if you would have asked us what we'd like to be doing in 15 years it would go something like this! "We want a big happy family! Catherine could homeschool the kids, and Brian could coach their sports teams. We'll serve in the church and teach our children about Jesus. Maybe we'll even adopt some kids!" Well, we're living our dream, and we love it! God is good!
