Since having a baby 6 and a half months ago, there seems to be conspicuously less time available for Red and Honey to go on romantic and adventurous dates.

Clearly, this is a tragedy.

Though not so much as one might think. Despite the ridiculously crazy foray into parenthood that has become our lives… we’ve more or less not minded that we’ve stayed home more.

Less spending money we don’t have on dates that are forgettable anyway, more sitting on the couch sipping tea and talking with one another or watching a favorite show together… has been quite nice, really.

Nonetheless, it is still nice to get away every once in a while. To dress up pretty, and eat fancy food. To have him open my car door for me. To eat filet mignon that’s perfectly tasty and completely free

Tonight we’re going to a fancy dinner for Honey’s work. Because my Honey does the audio and technical directing of the evening, I always get to tag along, and we have a free date.

This year, though, with the noticeable decline of fancy dinners and dates as of late, I am especially grateful that we get to go again this year. So today’s Gratituesday is this: I am grateful for (free!) dates with my amazing hubby!

I’ll hopefully show you a picture of us all spit-shined and fancied up on our big date. Stay tuned!

What are you grateful for? Write about it, or leave a comment below. Don’t forget to link up to Heavenly Homemakers too!

Today I’m going to participate in my first ever blogging carnival. It’s called Gratituesday, and it’s hosted by Heavenly Homemakers. A blogging carnival is basically where people post on a certain theme, and then add their links to the host’s site. I think it sounds like fun, so here we go…

Something for which I am grateful… hmmm. I don’t have to think hard on this one. I may as well start out with the obvious. I am so grateful for my family. Yup, the classic “I love my family”. It might not sound very exciting, or original… but it’s absolutely true, and I can’t help but say it!

I didn’t have a photo of all 3 of us available because hubby is fiddling with our home server right now… but here’s the world’s cutest baby, as mentioned in my 5m4mom party post. I’ve basically wanted this for as long as I can remember – a husband and children, that is – and sometimes it’s still surreal!

Grateful, I think, would be an understatment.

I’m so in love with my hubby and son!

I'm Red, he's Honey. I'm the writer of this blog and the source of your entertainment and/or boredom. We're parents of an exceptionally adorable child, and we have no idea what we're doing! This blog is the outlet for my thoughts along the way - welcome! Pull up a couch, grab a cup of tea, and stay a while! Or back away slowly. Whatever works.
