We have had a pretty busy weekend and it just seems to be stretching out and following us. I know that both My Mr. Right and I could use a little R&R. While we can’t afford to go spend a few days just lazing around on the beach (that would be my first choice, anyway. And preferably a warm, tropical beach…) we can take some time to just relax. My honey is a movie buff. Probably 50% of talking to each other is quoting movies. Ok, not that high of a percentage, but it is quite a lot. He watches a lot more movies than I do, which makes his movie quote library bigger than mine.. Not because I don’t like movies, I just don’t have the time! And, lately, we’ve been quoting a lot, and I mean A LOT, of Finding Nemo. Courtesy of the little monkey, of course. Some times you just need a big person movie. Just like I sometimes take a trip to Wal-Mart or Target or the Dollar Store to have an adult conversation, even if it’s just with the cashier at the check out!
So, this date night is low-key and simple. Grab a movie you haven’t seen in a while, snag a new one from the $5 rack while you’re at Wal-Mart, put a good one in the Netflix queue or check out the instant watch options or even pay-per-view. There are tons of options. I’d recommend 500 Days of Summer, The Bounty Hunter or Love Happens Pop some popcorn, grab a couple check out candies to share. Don’t forget your favorite “treat” beverage. Ours would be Dr. Pepper with fresh lime. YUM!
Put the kiddos to bed, grab a cuddly blanket, pop that DVD in the player and settle in with your sweetie. Enjoy your evening!
