At 4:30 today - Jade & I are taking off. We have a hot date!
You can find us here! Literally we are in the nosebleed section right about in this area! Jade is pumped - Cardinals vs. Cubs - a serious rivalry & he's prepared to root on his favorite team from St. Louis. I am just going for the food, people watching, and time with my favorite person.
We get the joy of an over night stay - thank you Abbie. You are now my favorite sister. Tomorrow we have a sitter lined up for the entire day. We may sleep in, we may go shopping, we may catch a movie - we can do whatever we want. That's the best part!
My parents dated each other a lot when I was growing up. They taught me the importance of still keeping your spouse your number one priority in life. I think this is one of the most valuable lessons they taught me. There is a big difference between Annie & Jade as a couple & Annie & Jade as parents. We need time together to enjoy our friendship & to relax and talk without little ears sneaking in. Don't get me wrong - family dates are important too, but any opportunity to sneak away with Jade is my favorite kind of date! Besides - one day our ornery kids will grow up and move out. When that day comes, I still want to be together as teammates & best friends. That is why I married him after all!
