Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas...
In the Potter household that is :)
Mark bought our tree yesturday and we are going to put up our decorations tonight. We try to make Fridays our date night so this week we are going to decorate our home, have homemade chicken and rice for dinner and then maybe go get a coffee or something later. We are excited. Last friday we went to dinner at a little local place called "Sundance Grill". It was a gourmet mexican I think I would say. They had a small but delicious choice of dinner options. The place was small and quiet and we really enjoyed just being out having fun together and being able to relax. Then Mark took me out to the church office because he has a surprise for me :) Since we dont have a fireplace in our apartment I had been complaining about not having anywhere to put our stockings. So Mark being the innovator that he is set out to surprise me with a fireplace. He had been making me a wooden fireplace at the office. It was painted with a mantel and everything! Of course we cant make a fire in it but none-the-less I was excited. So after finishing together some last finishing touches on our fireplace we set out to Beaners to get Snowmint Mochas, my new favorite. We ran into Ben there and hung out with him for a while and then we decided to go to Barnes and Noble. We love hanging out at book stores and we still had about an hour before we would need to get to bed for our early morning shift at Beaners. So we read in big comfy chairs at the book store and then headed to our cozy home for bed. It was truly a great evening. We love our date nights together. Its our one time to be together just for the purpose of being with each other and enjoying life. We have each others undivided attention and get to enjoy or new marriage. We may be together a lot during the week but it is in between jobs, emails and dirty laundry and so we really look forward to our weekly date night!
So I'm excited about tonight. We both love Christmas and although it may be about a week early at least we will get to begin to enjoy our first Christmas together :) Hopefully it will snow soon. Im excited for it.
