From impromptu sushi with friends, nights on Northgate, randomly ending up at the tattoo parlor(truly it did happen), to oh my we are lucky enough to have a sitter (my mom so graciously volunteered). What do we do now? The thought of having alone time together stumps us, since we usually have to leave the house there goes the idea of a nice night in. Well this past Friday we were lucky enough to have a night together thanks to my my mom. So we started the night with a little dinner.
That part was easy to figure out, it was what to do with our selves after dinner that got us. We did have the time nor the money to see a movie(when did it start costing so much to see a movie). We then threw out the idea of grocery shopping sans kids but we weren’t really sure of what we did and didn’t need. I don’t know how my love of the dollar store came up in the conversation but it did and we were off to the dollar store.
When we pulled up in the parking lot and saw one of the discount hair cutting places, we both talked of our need for hair cuts. Seeing my chance, I walked in and bravely sat down(the last time I got a hair cut at a place like this, I lost a lot of hair and was given a hair cut I couldn’t handle). Not this time, I was blessed with the luck and got an amazingly trained stylist. Who had the knowledge to train the beast. Casey on the other hand, did not get his cut. He did go back on Sunday with a coupon and got his and Ian’s done.
So what a change from pre-kids/college days, what do you do to keep your Date Nights fun?

Since coming home, I have made it a priority to make my home in all aspects home. So after almost 5 years of marriage, I have finally got to turn that energy towards my master bedroom.
Poor thing has been the most neglected room, for the first three years of our marriage we slept on a hand me down queen mattress on a broken frame. The first step we made was buying a king bed with a an amazing bed frame. That is about as far as we ever got, oh wait and some $9 side tables from ikea.
I finally had enough of the post college, new marriage chic. I wanted to make it look like we cared. The first step was to make this happen on less then a shoe string budget. So far I am managing to pull this off. The biggest project redoing the dresser is whats left, so wish me luck on that one. I started simple, I started with a much needed place to store my necklaces. My towel holder in my bathroom wasn’t cutting it.
I used a free cycle find, a sample can of paint ($2.50 at lowes) and my own two hands. It took me about 2 coats, and 14 hours start to finish. To get the paint about right, it still isn’t perfect it was my first home improvement project.
Picking the color was one of the hardest parts, we knew the main colors were going to be Gray and White with Accents of Navy. So we needed one more accent color and after listening to the ladies of twitter we finally decided on shades of turquoise. The shades part will make sense in the next few bedroom redo posts.
So my question today is would you like a post on how I decorated nearly my whole house with out buying but a handful of things new?
In the coming weeks, an awesome giveaway, introducing a new sponsor, and more bedroom redo plus what ever else pops in my mind.
