Dates, The Beach, and Green Bottles
The weekend of Memorial Day, McDreamy and I spent the weekend with my brother, his beautiful wife, The Bean, mom, dad, and my sister. We had SUCH a fun time. The Bean is simply hysterical...and SO SO SO smart. For his 2nd birthday, he got a Lightning McQueen car that he actually drives. So at dinner, he looks at me and says, "Aunt Bea , who made my McQueen car?" And I sort of laughed and said, "Oh, probably somebody over in Asia." To this The Bean replied: "Who's Asia? Is she one of my neighbors?" One of many times where he proves he can be WAY more interesting to converse with than some adults...we love him!! We also went down to the beach that weekend, and we wanted to post some pictures from that too.
Moving on...date night. Date night is something that we have recently re-established in our marriage. It's not that we didn't go out on dates anymore...it's just that they were random and scattered, and life always seems to get too busy to have date night. So, a couple weeks ago, we decided it was necessary, and boy oh boy am I glad! Wednesday nights are our official date night, and they have been SO MUCH fun!!! It just really gives us an opportunity to connect with each other totally uninterrupted by the rest of our lives. So hooray for date night!
Finally...I have come across a company over in the UK by the name of Bottle Green Drink Co. Check out their website: http://www.bottle-green.co.uk/. It looks really fantastic, and I've been trying to get in touch with them to see how to get their products here, but so far have had no such luck. If you have any ideas...please let me know!
