Date Day Thursday

Sorry I have been “away” for a bit…but I have seriously needed to spend some time just hanging out with my hubby…

Thursday’s are our Date Day and yesterday we had an ALL DAY outing together…I love that my husband is my BEST(est) friend in the whole world, and that after 15 years together we can still talk, hang out, encourage each other, and have a great time just t he two of us!!!

We started our day with 3 hours of sitting outside at Panera Bread Company reading, talking, planning out the rest of 2007 (family calendar stuff), and enjoying the amazing “fall weather” here in South Florida. (It has been in the 70’s for the last couple of days…absolutely amazing!)

Then we went out to Applebee’s for a quick bite to eat…yum!!

Then we popped over to Muvico theathers to watch an afternoon movie…Matt tried to get them to give me the “Senior Citizen Discount”…can you believe that? (What a goober!)

We sat down to watch a movie, we were two out of the four people in the theater…which always leads to Matt cutting up (out loud) in the theater…those poor two other people that were there!

The movie was really good…but the day was even better!!!

Take some time today to enjoy the “special” person God has placed in your life…

Hanging out with Hubby,

Don’t forget to stop by and comment for a chance to win the 200th Post Blog Give Away listed here. The winner will be picked November 12th.


  1. My husband and I have been married almost 30 years and we’re still having fun together. He’s my bestest friend too. I think it’s wonderful that you and I know how lucky we are.

    Your day sounds heavenly.


  2. Hey Mel, Well I spent 4 hours in the car with my boys. Plus I got to meet Sue at Praise and Coffee. It has been a great day enjoying who God has placed in my life.

    If you have any ideas about a “bloggy Chick conference” I would love to hear them.

  3. Kat…
    That is so awesome, 30 years!!! Congrats to you and your hubby for knowing a good thing when you have it!! (wink wink!)

    I would love to have a conference and have tons of ideas…let’s throw the ideas down in an email and see what we can come up with.


  4. Great idea, I need a fresh date with hubby! We usually take a morning during the week, but the past few weeks have been full on – a lovely encouragement to remind us to make some time again.

    Oh could you kindly email your Mum in love’s postal addy so I can send her book to her? ( xxx

  5. Just popped in to see how your “Giving Thanks” list was coming – and it’s growing! Way to go! And thank you, God, for blessing Melissa so very, very much! =)

  6. Great day! Good & smart of you! I was just thinking today that we need a fun day soon, as well!

    We have been married 24 years this year. And He is my bestest friend, too!

    But, I am still grateful for girlfriends!

    P.S. (beautiful)St Augustine Florida has some great locations for a conference….I would love to help!

  7. Sounds like a great day!!
    Can’t wait to hear your ideas about a conference.

  8. Karen…
    You and your husband should take a day and just enjoy each other…go on a date and see how he lights up from it! 😉

    You had a marvelous idea…I am just thankful to be able to be a small part of it!

    Yep…you need a day together…my in laws (love) are Christian Counselors and they have encouraged us (for many many years)to go on a regular date day and this is the first time in almost 15 years that we listened. (Go figure)…and yes, St. Augustine has some marvelous places for conferences…I love it up there!

    YOU, my friend, are always chock full of good ideas…I think if we all get our heads together we can really get something going here…


  9. Your day with your husband sounds wonderful. My husband and I have one just like that planned for Dec 7th… coffee, lunch, a movie and maybe a little Christmas shopping.
