Here is a shot of my happy hubby during our last back yard fire. The picture doesn't do him justice. He is sooooo cute. You'd think after 12 years (high school sweeties) I'd cool off a little, but I love him more than ever and find him more attractive too.
My hubby and I are going on a date!!!!!! I am so excited. We hardly ever get out alone. It isn't that we don't want to either. It is hard during the school year because I hate being away from the kids. I wanted to be a stay at home mom, but it hasn't worked out yet. My hubby keeps telling me I might be able to stay home a while with future babies. And during the summer it is hard because we are usually short on cash.
So anyways, we are keeping the evening very cheap. My hubby is working, so I won't get a start on our date until late. We plan to eat at Olive Garden. I know it sounds strange, but we love going there.... breadsticks, salad, leftovers... I have been saving points at MyPoints and trading them in for Olive Garden gift cards. Then we are going to listen to free music at the local arts festival taking place this weekend. If we still are awake, which for me will be easy but not so much for him, we are making a fire in our back yard where we can sit and chat uninterrupted.
I am so excited!
If you are interested in My Points you can check it out here or I can send you a personalized email invitation. I take surveys through the site and also click though emails. I never actually do the offers they send. I just click on the 5 points for going to the offer's website, but I don't actually sign up for anything. Some days I'll get over 10 emails from them, so it is easy to get points.
How do you keep your dates affordable? I'd love to get some new ideas...
