Dating My Husband (again)
If you’re married with kids you know just how hard it is to find quality time with your partner. Right? I’m not talking about dinner and a movie on a Friday night, I’m talking an entire weekend with just you and your man! I’m telling all you married folks – make it happen! Now.
The hubby and I recently returned from a weekend in Chicago. And my feet haven’t touched the ground since. Look, I’ll be the first to say I have some “diva-like” tendencies but this wasn’t some over the top swanky vacay. Truth be known, there was no suite at the Four Seasons, no reservations at a 5-star restaurant and no front row seats to a sold-out concert. In fact, the weekend highlight for me was freezing our asses off at a Notre Dame Football game at Soldier Field.
Perhaps I was feeling nostalgic? But there was something about getting all cozy with my man on those freezing metal bleacher seats. We sat there all bundled up cheering for the home team – throwing back peanuts and beer. It reminded me of our very first date at a Yankee/Mariner baseball game. Except this time the Mister “scored” after the game (wink wink)!
So when is the last time you got away with the hubby without the kids?
