Date Nights

Kyle and I had our first of many date nights to come. With TV viewing in a lull for the summer still, there just wasn't anything good on TV or on our DVR other than Star Trek, which isn't my favorite watch. But, we love playing games, so we pulled out a game from the archives which we haven't played since our dating days. I know it sounds funny, but it's a Start Wars trading card game. We don't actually trade cards or anything but you take all these random cards and you build a deck and then you battle; Light Side vs. Dark Side. I'm always the Light Side because I just can't stand to be evil. Any way, it's just a lot of fun.

So, we heated up our Red Baron 4 Cheese Pizza, hunkered down on the living room floor around the coffee table and played for hours. It was a great time to connect. We haven't played games together in a long time, so it was really fun! Last Comic Standing was on the background, but I think we're done watching that show because the final 3 people lack the "funnies".

There you have it, our first weekly date night. Since our financial situation doesn't allow us to go out every week on a date night without Monkey, we've decided to do one at home every week and then the last week of the month find a babysitter and go out just the two of us.

On a total side note, Kyle and I went to see Harry Potter, FINALLY! It was a great movie. We also finished reading the last and final book a few weeks ago and I give that book an A+ as well (except for the last chapter which I found SUPER corny).

Over and out, Monkey calls!

Although I've never tried the Star Wars game.. I'm glad you two got to have a fun evening together - sometimes a date at home is better than a date out and about!!
