A Date!!

Tonight, I'm going on a date!! Matt and I are going out to Pastafina and are going to see Snow White and the Huntsman. I can't wait! I seriously think dating ones own spouse is an underrated experience and something we take for granted--at least, we do. We go out and eat all the time, enjoy one another's company and nice conversation, but we never consider it a date. Add a movie and, suddenly, we're in date territory because Matt and I don't often go out to movies--I think the last one we saw was Hunger Games--which is crazy because it's so inexpensive here in town.

It's funny because every time I tell someone that we can see a matinee for $3.25 each (it was only $3.00 each when we saw Hunger Games), their mouths fall open and they look at me like I've grown another head. Hilarious!  Regular evening showings are only $5.25 each, which isn't too bad either. Sadly, though, when we moved here in 2004 a matinee was only like a $1.50 per person and evening showings were only $3.00. Then, they renovated the theater and have been slowly raising the price every couple of months. Another few years and we'll be almost as expensive as everyone else.

Anyway, back to the topic. It's crazy how excited I am about going on this date, too. I almost feel like we're dating again, in that giddy sort of way, which I think is a really healthy thing. It means I'm still, even after 13 years together, really into my husband. I think more couples should go on a date every once in a while.

Okay, for now I need to go. The movie's at 4:40 (I think) and it's already after 1pm and Matt's still sleeping. Time to kick his lazy bones into gear. I also need to do something with my hair. I'll let you know what I think of the movie!
