I've spent the entire weekend in bed sick with the flu, and today I finally feel up to working on some stuff. I've been writing lesson plans and thought I'd get this post put together as well!
This month, I asked my sponsors to answer the following question: What would your idea of a perfect date be?
I have to say April 25th. It's not too hot and not too cold. All you need is a light jacket! (I couldn't resist!). But in all seriousness, I would say that the prefect date would be a mountain weekend getaway! camping in the summer or a warm cabin in the winter. Yes, please.
My perfect date would be just spending time with the guy I love . . . preferably on a beach whilst barefoot, provided the water's not too cold. Haha, I'm not very picky, though; anywhere with him would be lovely!
My perfect date would be dinner at my favorite Italian restaurant and then a walk downtown and ice cream for dessert. I have two daughters, so I'm easily impressed when it comes to grown up activities.
My perfect date would have to be just getting to spend the time with my husband, having him focus completely on what we were doing. He gets distracted easily! Our first date was lunch, hanging out, mini golf, dinner then movie and it was an amazing just hang out all day and relaxing with each other. I would love to have a date like that again, some sort of activity, bowling, boccie ball, mini golf, anything fun and easy going. Then after that to a nicer dinner ... which is magically paid for by someone else of course.
Through the years, I've become less and less romantic in the typical sense of the word. Just being together, uninterrupted (my work, phone) is perfect enough for me. A picnic would be nice, even if it means just sitting in the car while parked at our favorite spot having dinner (since it's been consistently below zero here).My perfect date would be spent with my husband walking around the downtown area of our city, walking to little shops and getting treats at the bakery. We'd go to a fun hole-in-the-wall restaurant or pub and spend hours eating and talking. Then, we'd go home and spread out a blanket in our living room and watch silly cartoons with glasses of wine.
I had to think about this for a long time and really didn't know. You see I have been in a long distance relationship for about 25/32 months of dating. We closed the distance last October and have had 2 dates since then. I used to think a perfect date was the same dish (him-lunch & me-dinner), the same dessert and rootbeer with a new movie we both watch on Youtube at the same time. That was the perfect date. Now we are actually learning what real dating should be like but I think the perfect date now is....being together...FOR REAL!

The perfect date would be dinner at Chipotle (pronounced like "Chip-pot-l") and a night out salsa dancing... So I can burn off the humongous burrito bowl I just ate ;)Anything that involves the great outdoors and quality time with my dear boyfriend is an absolutely delightful date. However my heart throbs for long walks with no agenda or route just honest conversation and meeting one another where we are at while exploring the little corner of the world we are a part of. An added dose of laughter especially does the trick.
