So, I have to take time to give the hubby some Kudos.  I know I will post when he makes me mad so he deserves this!

I am always saying he is not romantic and spontaneous.  I complain he never "plans" for anything.  On the night of my birthday this year, he ran out and got a cake at 9PM!!! On valentines days, he stopped at Walmart on the way home from lunch and bought me the movie "serendipity" and said " HONEY, ITS YOUR FAVORITE MOVIE!"  i was like " it is???"  ( it is not my favorite- i had metioned to him that i want to eat at that resturant when we go to NY this summer)For my 21st birthday, he bought me a REMOTE CONTROL, because I lost mine and I was complaining to him one night- so he thought he was sooooo thoughtful getting me a new one. So, for holidays, I am MORE specific now!   I am always telling him that I would love to be suprised and whisked away.  He is just not the type.  I know that and I don't expect him to be that way but last night was the sweetest thing!!

He came home and told me to get dressed, we are going to a movie.  He already had plans for his aunt to come watch the kids.  So, we went!!! It was fun.  It's so simple, but really meant a lot to me.  I meant a lot that he noticed I needed a break.  I wasn't whining or complaining about it but he just knew.   Usually a date night takes a lot of planning and happens only on special occasions.  Usually, i do all the planning!

It felt like old times.  We were laughing and giggling.  We didn't have to hold drinks and popcorn for the kids or take anyone to the potty.  I remember what made me fall for him 9 years ago!  We truly enjoyed just being together doing simple things!

So, he really did good this time.  Maybe he will try it more often!!

yay for Pat!  I am glad you had such a good time.  I wouldnt hold your breath about him doing it more often though!  The longer they wait in between good things that they do, the bigger fuss we make over it, so why try harder?!!!  I am so happy you had a nice time!
