Tangled date

While shopping at Walmart, I saw that the movie Tangled was finally out and wanted to do a fun date with Carl. I had seen this post on The Dating Divas and thought it would be really fun to base a date around the movie... now, I knew we didn't have time to do all the activities the post suggested, so I picked one that I knew we could do and have time for.....

Sooo... when Carl came home from school, he found me waiting in the garage with a little snack and a place to put up his feet. I thought that he might need a little break/ winding down time before we jumped into the date. We sat outside talking about our day and just having fun for about 45 minutes... it was so nice!

I decorated with some yellow lanterns (and if you've seen the movie, you'll remember the floating lanterns).

and I made this poster from a printoff the dating divas posted and a pic of Carl I took at
Disneyland.... he was giving me his best Indiana Jones look :)

And we painted while watching the movie. When we got started, I don't think either of us knew what we were going to paint, but we ended up painting the same part of the movie- the floating lanterns (one of the best parts of the movie.... although the movie is so cute and is full of LOTS of 'best parts' LOL)

We both had a really good time... we watched a movie, painted, ate some leftovers, and just enjoyed being with each other.


  1. You are so cute and creative! I need ideas like this. I am just a boring wife now Brian gets to come home to me with makeup on from the day before and laying on the couch with Mya in my crummy clothes. Maybe I should do one of these dates every once in a while.

  2. It was totally fun! We both had a good time and it is nice to do something out of the ordinary. I remember back in high school when I used to really try to make our dates exciting, but you get comfortable with life and forget the importance of showing your mate how much you care.

    I bet you are not as 'boring' as you think you are sis, just cuddling on the couch while watching survivor is a great way to connect :)
