The Perfect Date

What's your idea of a perfect date?! Can your mind even go there?! Being 35 weeks pregnant and all, my perfect date would begin by NOT being pregnant. The last date we had, ended a little early because my feet were killing me as we walked through Borders.

Our dates are generally simple and satisfying; dinner, a movie, shopping, and/or wondering through a book store. Every once and a while we'll go to a nice restaurant but we'll end up home early, because we're tired! Curling up on the couch and watching a movie is sometimes WAY more appealing than being out and about. And lets face it; when you have 3 kids and another on the way (if you dont know us, its okay to say; crap, that's a lot of kids!), being tired is sometimes just life!

HOWEVER; the perfect date (and lets dream big here folks!), would be a weekend away! Can a date be extended into a weekend?! I suppose it can be, since this is MY dream perfect date! Maybe even a local hotel, where we can sleep in, order room service, watch movies, go to the hot tub, and FOR SURE spa services!
I LOVE me some spa time.
My husband and I both love DSW, so we'd have to fit some shoe shopping in there too. So...the perfect mix between luxury and relaxation, and being out and about!

Check out Friend Making Monday and Modern Mom for more perfect date ideas!

Visit me tomorrow; I'll have 35 week pictures and updates from my doctor's appointment. Im hoping I haven't gained another 7 pounds like I did last time!

***UPDATE: new blog about 35 weeks now posted


  1. I love wandering around book stores as well. And, I agree, sometimes just a movie in bed is special enough. Good luck in these next few weeks of pregnancy!!

  2. Hey! I saw this 'Project 52' on another blog...sounds like they have some neat ideas!

  3. Wow, 35 weeks! Not too much longer! Congratulations to you!

    I love to walk around in bookstores, too - you never know what you'll find. And as time goes on I, too, am coming to appreciate more and more the simplicity of just curling up on the couch and watching a movie. :-)

  4. Sounds wonderful! You are almost there. So exciting!!!


  5. Doesn't sound too much different than the perfect date of us in our 50's! Bruce's and my idea of a date out usually incorporates a Barnes and Noble and Starbucks somewhere in the mix....but since the closest one to us country folks is almost an hour away, we don't do it often. Ya know what....I can make your dreams come true! Just say the word and we'll keep the kids for the get your rest time and we get our grandkids time. It's a win, win. :) Take care of yourself....not much more time to be uncomfortable. See you soon! Love yall!

  6. I would love this date!!! Oh my back is hurting right now! I am a Mom too. 3 kids and planning on the fourth pretty soon.
    Following you now, come follow me :)
    Gros bisous

  7. Oh the spa would be wonderful. We don't get date nights very often but that I would love!!! And new shoes is always a good thing :)
