May included an international mission trip, so our date had to be low key. Plus last month was all adventurous and whatnot. It's all about balance, people.
Before children became financial parasites in our world, we used to shop a lot. We never spent a ton of money but we liked spending time looking for good deals, etc. We're actually pretty cheap, to be honest. We rarely hit the malls now since we spend half our time convincing the children it's super fun there without letting them ride those big plastic germ-fests. So I planned a night out, complete with spending money and no kids. Since I quit my job a year ago, money is rarely spent on new clothes for us so this was a treat.
After we'd spent our last penny, we headed to Ted Drews, a STL fav, for some summer treats.
Not our most creative date but good conversation over dinner (watching Friday Night Lights has spurred an endless supply of parenting conversation! Egad!) and a chill night together was pretty perfect.
