Date Night in the Hill Country

Date Night? What's that? I've got too much to do with the kids and all their activities......blah, blah, blah. Let me tell you a little secret. If you don't carve out a little space for each other, you will regret it. And you will be in a better frame of mind and less stressed out! Marriage is hard. You must get away every now and then. Do you really want to wake up one day after the last kid is going off to college and realize you don't even know that person you married  anymore?  If not, you need to get to work and figure out a way to get together! I've been thinking about … [Read more...]

Balcones Heights Jazz Festival

I was out on a long overdue date night with the husband on Friday night. We finally went to see the movie Bernie which was playing at the Bijou at Crossroads Mall.

Emergency Date Night

I was feeling overwhelmed with birthday parties and the kids school and sports activities. I called for an emergency date night on Saturday night.   I just wanted a casual meal with my man that wasn't rushed or one I didn't have to cook.

He said, "What exactly makes it an emergency?"  I assured him that it didn't involve talking about his feelings. Of course with this … [Read more...]
