a great day in january.

First I would like to thank you ALL for all the wonderful
compliments on our beautiful children shared in Tuesdays post.
As much as we pushing off having little ones... we are just estactic to bring in such beautiful children in the world. Thank you!

Okay. Enough of that. Mj disappointed me enough. It's now time for happy time.
Moving along.

Every month on our 'monthly anniversary' we always find a way to celebrate somehow. Check out all the other FUN stuff we did during our fourth month here. Being the 3rd fell on a Tuesday night, which is my book study nights we had to put it off.  That being said,  on Thursday, January 5th the hubs and I both took the day off from the work life. Being tax season is coming my job will be in full force and my company doesn't allow us to take off any time for three months. Which in all honesty it doesn't effect me but I can pretend I'm upset about it. Right? What did it get me? The husband for a full day.

We woke up, hold up... I woke up at 7:30am. Early I know. I'm the early bird who can never sleep in when it's allowed. I let Aaron sleep in while I caught up on house work. Before I knew it, it was 11:30am. What? I cooked a small breakfast for him & went in for the big jump. Yes... on him in bed.  He was up in no time.
Me? I was ready for a fun day in town. I had a lot planned prior to knowing he was going to take off - some I got done, some I did not. But it was worth it.

Showered. Got Ready. & There we were in the car headed to Savannah.

Okay so we went a lot of random places.

Bass Pro Shop
Charm & Charlie
Dollar General
Visit our friends, Jon & Shanna in the hospital {they just deliver their identical girls the night before, Yay!}

We were starving at this point so we headed downtown Savannah for a wonderful dinner at Outback Steakhouse, one of our favorites. Plus we had the best time & dinner ever!

It's a ritual to order the blooming onion

& then to follow we ordered with our eyes & not our tummies basically we always order
big & then get boxes to take home.

Aaron with his usual - Filet & Lobster

& me with my {sometimes} usual - Alice Spring Chicken

Is it just mine or does your better halfs get freaked out/annoyed/eye rolling when you take pictures of EVERYTHING just in order to capture for your blog?
Mine too. He looks around to see if anyone is watching me arrange my broccoli & snap the picture. Baahaha.

We walked around downtown {my favorite} for a little bit and then got a brilliant beyond brilliant idea.
... we took a stroll over to the Savannah Civic Center and decided to kill ourselves & Ice Skate. I will admit we were both extremely nervous.

It was craZy cold in there ... at first. Until we both realized it's a lot of work to Ice Skate &  quite the exercise. Our layers peeled off in no time.

My legs look as if they are like 5 inches long?  I surely am NOT the tallest person but my legs are not this short. I mean I know we have the strangest looking children but REALLY, you must understand. Anyway, Aaron wouldn't really let me get a good picture of him skating - I think he was pretty freaked out that he may have fallen.

Aaron - 0  Jessica - 0
there were a LOT of almosts for both of us
& noooo we were NOT holding the walls the entire time. We were the ones in the middle being all famous & shiii acting like Nancy Carigan. I'm lying.
However, I will say we didn't stay long. There is only so much to do while ice skating.

Okay so we end out night with ONE.MORE.PLACE.
I always talk about this & being it was still early and we were both completely stuffed it would be a perfect place to take him for the first time. He can't stand surprises & tried to guess the entire way there....

Lovin Spoons!

This was my first time to a Lovin' Spoons - there wasn't enough fruit choice for me but it still was so delicious. Aaron loved it too. Actually he informed me last night after dinner that he's been back twice this week. Diet? Ay, not really.

We were home by 8:00pm & ended the night
on the couch with over sized jammies & a movie until it was time for shut eye!

The End!

Happy Four Months of Marriage, love!
It's been awesome!

Awww you two look like you are sooo in love! And your legs only look that small from the angle of the camera, no worries!


Brekke said...

Sounds like a great day!! Your ice skating outfit? Presh!!

Cassie said...

This is great! I love how you guys have a once a month date! I made Matthew promise me that once a month we would have a date for ourselves when he gets home. And that means for FOREVER. Not just right when he gets home! ha! And, I know whatcha mean about the picture taking. My whole family makes a big deal out of it. It's to the point now that I will be cooking and mom will say "Did you get a picture for your blog?!" lol

Carolyn said...

So cute!!! :) I love that you guys went skating!!

Raven said...

yes! The blooming onion!!!! drooling right now. You two are adorable btw. You WILL make gorgeous kids, don't let that baby maker thing fool you.

and as much as it pains me to say it, happy 4 month wedding anniversary! (It only pains me because I am one of those that hates "monthly anniversaries" BUT as my mom has always told me, DSFDF aka different strokes for different folks. AND not to mention I just like you so much that I will let this one little tidbit pass) ;-)
