Date 2/12

Or what shall from hence forth be called the MOST FUN DATE EVA!

Here was his clue...

Here's what we did...

We went on a curling lesson!!! Ah! We freakin' loved it!! Across the river is an ice sports complex that offers lessons. They ran a groupon and I snatched it up quickly.






(That's us sweeping together. On our second date? Don't judge.)

After our lesson we filled up at one of Russ' favorite places:

We answered 10 more questions out of our books and Russ is officially ahead on our scores. We're loving the randomness of the questions and surprising ourselves with what we know (and don't know...eek!) We also spent far too long coming up with names for a curling team if we were to start one (including a t-shirt design). I'd list our top 4 favs but you'd have to know curling lingo to get them. Otherwise you'd just think we were inappropriate.

I can not emphasize enough how much fun this date was. It was silly and out of the box. It was active and educational (sort of). Not to mention, finding out at 35 what a natural I am at an Olympic sport. I've failed you, USA, I apologize.

For more of our dates from this project, go here., for other peeps doing the same gift/project, go here.

Oh my goodness - this is the coolest date ever! T-shirts sound like a great idea for your follow-up lesson. ;) I think I need to scour the groupon offerings more closely for something equally cool and new to do. Thanks so much for linking up!
