We Survived Our First Overnight

Y’all life has been busy, too busy, and it really won’t slow down until the second week of May, but we decided to take advantage of an opportunity and had our first overnight without Kobi!! 

We actually picked her up like usual from our friend’s house, and then we came home gave her a bath put pajamas on her and got back in the car and dropped her off. It was hard leaving her, but I knew she was in good hands and we didn’t spend the whole time talking about her, in fact we only paused from our night to make her a goodnight video, but we did missed her terribly this morning!! 

We didn’t even do much of anything. We decided to go out to dinner to enjoy someone else doing the dishes and to enjoy a meal uninterrupted, then we tried to find me an (out of season) cardigan for the office that didn’t cost an arm and a leg (Kohls)! We did talk, and dream a little about our future, Bill told me a riddle that wasn’t really a riddle but more like a word problem, but not a word problem at all, and it went way left and I was confused for a while but we shared a really good laugh over it and then we ended up on the couch eating ice cream watching Bones. It was a great time of togetherness even though we were both tired before dinner and I had to leave early (only one episode of Bones) to do homework! 

I guess I’m surprised that we made it through the night with no tears on my part and we were able to just sit and enjoy the time we had. It’s needed every once in a while, but I do love the routines we have in place with Kobi and I look forward to being able to spend more time with my family after the second week of May!!  

Hopefully it won’t be quite as long until the next post, but alas I make no promises, because grad school!

Date Night Tonight!!

Y’all I am so excited! William and I are going to have a date night by ourselves tonight! We are suppose to go to the movies and maybe grab something to eat. Or maybe we’ll go play Pokemon and grab some coffee. I’m just excited to spend some alone time with William before it’s bed time! I’m gonna get all dolled up and make sure we get a decent picture together too! 

We’ve gone on plenty of dates since Kobi came along (except to the movies so we may really follow through with that) and we haven’t had any major issues with bringing her because it allows us to be a family, which is something we’ve wanted for a while. However, tonight will only be the second time we’ve left her in the care of someone and went out together!

With me starting school and us both working along with the rest of the responsibilities we have the plan is to try to have a date night (even if it’s just at the house) at least once a week! 

What are some things you do for date night?
