Three Dates. One week.

I don’t know how I pulled this off. The stars must have aligned in just the right way. I am going on THREE dates in one week. THREE!! Brandon and I have not gone on three dates in the last three months, but somehow we are going on three dates in one week. Yay!

Last night to close out one of the worst weekends in the history in my life, Brandon took me out for ice cream which we proceeded to take to the park and eat on the bed of his truck :) I got low calorie mint chocolate chip (obviously the green kind). It was absolutely delicious. Brandon got a shake or something with Reese’s and Snickers. It had just rained so it was nice and cool, a little breezy and all kinds of perfect. Oh simply country love, how I have missed you. Thank God summer is just round the corner, so dates like that can be more frequent.

Tomorrow we are going to the movies to see Bridesmaids. RCPD gets free tickets so Michelle is picking them up for us :) I have heard really great things about the movie, so I am really looking forward to it. I plan to take Brandon to a nice dinner beforehand (you know, a little thank you for agreeing to a chick flick) – perhaps a little Gordon Beirsch action. Mmm yum. Then I have two AMC movie tickets that I got from work for my birthday (seven months ago…). So later this week we are going to go see Something Borrowed. I read the book, so I am excited to see it. Nervous too though after what happened with the freaking Lovely Bones. So not only am I going on three dates – two of them are to see chick flicks. Yep, not only is Brandon going to see two movies in theatres, but they are both CHICK FLICKS. Uh huh, yep, I heard it too -- hell is freezing over.

I have absolutely no doubt that this is a fluke and we will go back to spontaneous dates or planned large scale events like concerts, but for now, I will absolutely just relish the idea of three dates in one week while secretly hoping that nicer weather means more date nights with my soon-to-be hubby.
