Date Night

We leave for New York Friday at 7:00 a.m. Sometimes you have to get through a schedule like this to get to NYC! ..
Every Saturday Andy gets his schedule for the week. This has been one of the hardest things for me regarding his job. I am a planner, and not getting your schedule until a day before the week starts is not good for a planner! But I can adapt. Right?
Andy and I just started something new. Every week when we get his schedule we pick one night we have free and set it aside as a date night. We take turns planning the date. Sometimes we eat in. Sometimes we go out. Sometimes we sit and watch movies. Sometimes we are active. Here are a few of my favs.
Tupelo Honey and Orange Leaf. Can you guess who planned this one?
Arts and Crafts :)
Grilled Chicken and Golf
 Every week on our date we ask each other 3 questions.
1. What is one way I made you feel loved this week?
2. What can I do to love you better?
3. How can I be praying for you? 
It has been a blessing to set aside time and "touch base." I am thankful for a husband who is intentional.

Today I am thankful

Meet Miss Crawford. I am thankful for people like her. She is my friend, and if you meet her she will be yours too. She is one of those people that always makes you feel right at home. I got to see her classroom. Yes classroom. She is a teacher. And a darn good one at that. She has so much passion for teaching and making a difference in children that it is contagious.
The Bearden Gang. Go dogs.
I am thankful for these ladies and the continued friendship I have had with them since High School. I don't know what I would do without them in my life. I got to go to dinner with them this past week. So refreshing to catch up on life.
Thankful for my sweet friend Kelli who gave me these flowers. Her and her fiance came over for dinner this past week. I am going to be in her wedding in May. I am excited to celebrate this season of life with her.
I am thankful for my job. I am doing something I LOVE. Work doesn't feel like work anymore. I don't dread the next day, I actually look forward to it. Thankful for the doors the Lord opened to allow me to work for such a wonderful company.

Thankful that in 14 days I will be in NYC about to go to a Yankees game. For my mom's 50th she wanted to go to New York for the weekend. And what Meg wants Meg gets :) so off we go to NYC.
