Life Lately...

Today I wanted to take a break from talking about serious stuff and share with you what we have been up to lately.  My husband Derek lost his job the end of March and we finally found him a new one that he just started last Monday he is loving it and it so nice to know that he has a job again.  He will also be graduating with his Bachelors in Communication on April 26th and I am so excited for him to be done with school.

I have been having a hard time with life lately dealing with infertility and life stresses so last week my husband Derek surprised me with an amazing date night to help take my mind off of things and relax. I got home and he jumped out of no where and put my scarf on my head and told me to close my eyes and not to peek. This didn't work out too well because the scarf had holes in it and I could see so he grabbed a towel from his back seat and but that over my head. 

He drove around and around taking roads left and right and confusing me so I wouldn't know where we were going.  With all of his stopping and going and turning I got really car sick, I almost puked.  We finally arrived at our stop.  I had no clue where we were or what we were doing, other than we were going to eat first.  With all the bumps we were hitting and slow moving and stopping and going I thought we were in the mountain some where.  Little did I know we were in downtown Layton.  Derek came to the car to let me out but still told me to close my eyes, so I kept my eyes closed the whole way.  I was proud of myself for not peeking it is so hard for me to not know where we were going.  I suddenly heard country music playing and I was trying to figure out what restaurant we were at.  I didn't know until we sat down and he let me open my eyes.  We had arrived at Texas Roadhouse.  I was so excited!! I looked on the table and there were these beautiful flowers on the table.  I was very impressed.  Underneath the flowers were two tickets the a movie, The Host.

My handsomely, awesome, amazing husband!!! And the beautiful flowers.

Us at the movie The Host.  It was actually pretty good, a little long but good.

Have you ever been surprised with a date night?  I would love to hear from you!

  2. haha thanks Mikelle! He didn't have anything else in his car to use so that's what he came up with. And things are going really good for us finally, I think majority of it is that we are making better decisions for us. I miss you too! When are you coming back to Utah?
