Thursday Thoughts

Happy Thursday, lovelies! I hope all of you have been having a good week. My days have been jam-packed with running around and my evenings have been spent with friends. Tonight is date night with my hubby. Bryan and I try to set aside one night a week to spend by ourselves. Our date can consist on pizza on the floor and a movie, but we really try to get away from the hustle and bustle of life and spend some quality time together. Since we're having such pretty weather, we are planning on hitting the mountain bike trail and then grilling something for dinner.

Did you know that kissing your spouse just 10 seconds in the morning and 10 seconds in the evening makes your relationship stronger?

"What do you wanna marry me for anyhow? So I can kiss you anytime I want."

After three and a half years of marriage, Bryan and I are finally in a small group with other young couples from our church. It is wonderful! We have the most amazing leaders, who have been such a blessing in our lives. In the short amount of time we have been meeting I cannot tell you how much it has enriched out lives to spend time with these special people.

Bryan and I are going with one of the couples to a wine and jazz evening at a local restaurant this weekend. How fun does that sound? As much as I love cooking desserts, I said the other day that I would die a happy woman if I could just have a glass of wine and piece of chocolate a day. {Both make the heart happy.}

With all of my fresh herbs in my back yard I have been thinking of ways to put them to good use. Most of you already know this, but I am a huge water girl. During the day I only drink water. {After my morning coffee.} Occasionally there is the exception of when I go out to eat and order sweet tea. This is weird, but I don't like the taste of water in lots of restaurants, thus I sometimes order tea. And on occasion I will have a mixed drink, but that is the only time I have a carbonated beverage. My favorite water right now is mint and orange water. Crush up some fresh mint and squeeze in some fresh oranges--viola! Yummy flavored water!

Those are my semi random thoughts for the day, hopefully you weren't too bored. ;) 


  1. Have a great date night!! Agree with wine + chocolate, this makes me very happy as well :) I love putting orange and mint in my water but have not combined them - sounds delish!

  2. I simply HAVE to get a date night going. I've been married for nearly 13 years (although we've been together since University - so almost 20 years) we have 3 kids, a happy home, a dog, and we have NEVER got round to having a date night since being married - doesn't that sound SO unromantic! Anyway, hope you have a great one, love your idea about orange and mint water - will definitely try that! x

  3. Love these. M and I kiss every morning and every night, and throughout as well lol. Needy hahaha but whatev lol.


  4. Love your random thoughts. I have heard that about kissing too. I always tell Matt he needs to kiss me as he walks out the door to work and right when he gets home. That is awesome you are in a group at your church! and enjoy your wine! I am the same way chocolate and wine make me happy:)
