Date Night with the Hubby

Posted in Uncategorized on November 27, 2008 by alainayoung

So I am pretty excited today because I get to go on a date with my amazing husband tonight! You see, we have only been on 3, yes I said 3, dates since we have moved to Colorado almost a year ago! We are long overdue! I made a deal with myself that I would make it a point to build up my babysitter base and start dating my husband again. I have used the excuse that it was not worth the effort or the money that it takes to find someone to watch him and then pay to go on a date, but I am trying to change my mindset! I have found that when we get a little break we are actually better parents and a closer couple! We benefit and so does our precious little guy! 

We had a revelation a few weeks ago that made me realize how important this decision to make date night a priority really was. Adam and I exchanged a quick kiss one evening in front of Beckett and it made him sooooo happy. He started grinning and laughing and so of course, we did it again! He just laughed and laughed! I immediately realized how vital it is to the family that Adam and I stay strong in our marriage and how secure and happy it makes my child feel when he sees that we love each other!!! Oh to see life through the innocent eyes of a child! I pray that I try to do it more and more!

Well, off to pretty myself and then to the movies!!! Hope everyone has an incredible Thanksgiving tomorrow…. don’t take family for granted, enjoy them, I wish I could see my family tomorrow! I am so grateful though that God has blessed me with some amazing friends who have invited us to spend the day with them! He always provides!!!

Just a Little Update…

Well it has been a crazy couple of weeks for the Young family! Beckett caught some kind of virus and ran 104 temp for 3 days…. we even ended up in the ER in the middle of the night due to a rash and a very upset little guy! I was a nervous wreck and couldn’t stop bawling, you see, this was the first time my child has ever been sick and I didn’t quite know what to do! Needless to say, it was a long sleepless week for me!

The clouds eventually parted and the sun began to shine at the beginning of last week! My friend Joy flew in from Oklahoma to attend the Celine Dion Concert with me, which was cancelled due to her being sick, but we still had a great time anyway! We shopped and drank so much Starbucks… I am pretty sure I gained at least 5 pounds while she was here!!! All in all, it was so good for me to have “girl time” and I definitely enjoyed every minute of it! 

The end of the week was spent with family in Silverthorne, CO! Adam’s family drove up to vacation and ski and we were so excited to join them! I got to do more shopping on Friday at an amazing outlet mall and Saturday was spent skiing on the great slopes of Loveland!!! Grandma cooked some amazing food and we enjoyed her eagerness to watch Beckett so Mamma and Daddy could have a little break! We are so thankful for family and wish we could see them more often!!dsc01704_2Just a little family photo from the Mountains…. You know I can’t have a post without a picture!

I know it is a few days past Halloween, but I have been a little tied up and not able to access the computer at my convenience! Fall Festival was a good time…. I had the cutest little penquin you have ever seen! He didn’t even fight me on wearing the headpiece, which is usually the case with any type of head adornment!!!
