a golden weekend (weekend replay)

This past weekend was Kyle's first days off in 19 days.  He is a trooper.  We both needed some time together really bad.  

Friday he texted me and asked "want to do something fun tonight?".

Yes please.

He offered no suggestion... so I made plans.  He got home and we ate dinner together, and then headed to the east end of town with the idea being to go play mini golf.  We haven't played in a really long time... and usually its his idea.

But first... since we were on that side of town... I wanted to take advantage of being over at Off Broadway Shoes... because I wanted/needed some new tennis shoes!  I knew as soon as I got out of the car... we probably wouldn't be going to play mini golf.  I just felt really crappy.  I toughed it out to browse the shoes but then I told Kyle we just needed to go home.  So we grabbed Blizzards and watched a movie on the couch instead.  

I was really bummed... I really really really needed time away from the couch.  That is really all we do... but what else is there when he gets home 2 hours before he needs to be in bed and has been at work the past 15 hours?

Saturday I asked him to get out of bed around 8:00 so we could have some breakfast together before I met Aly at the Indie Craft Parade downtown.  And he did!  

The craft show was pretty great.  Some affordable things mixed with some really high end items.  I walked away with a gift for a friend and two paper items to eventually hang in the house.  And to top it off... I ran into our Realtor Margie!  First time we have seen each other since we closed on the house!  

I got home around noon, Kyle and I ate some lunch, and then he was ready to get out of the house.  So we headed back to the east end and went straight to Frankie's Fun Park for that mini golf.  It was the hottest part of the day... and there was very little shade.  It was borderline miserable for my pregnant self but we did manage to have a lot of fun!  And he beat me by a lot.

I still managed to end up dragging him back to the shoe store... where he picked out my new shoes :).  I'm sort of in love with them.  He also was drug to Babies-R-Us to take back a few duplicates from the shower.

THEN he wanted to eat out.  We were headed to a chinese bistro when he found a Korean BBQ place with great reviews.  A little hole in the wall connected to a gas station.  It was DELICIOUS.

He gave me all of Saturday.  So I gave him all of Sunday.  We rushed home after church and he watched football... with the added treat of the Titans winning!

It was a fantastic date day on Saturday.  It was so good to just have fun with him all afternoon and not worry about cleaning anything or working on any projects.  This weekend I was reminded how blessed I am to have the husband that I do.  He may not be around much, but he is really trying hard to BE there with me when he is.

Today I am linking up with my friend Beth Ann over at My Life More Abundant.
