Driving Range + Cheese Soufflé

Driving Range + Cheese Soufflé

Venturing into unknown territory can be uncomfortable but is usually where the most innovation, creativity, and (in our case) fun is cultivated. Our past date night involved both an uncomfortable (for Britt) date adventure and unknown (for both of us) meal. We had a great…

Game Night In + BBQ Chicken Pizza

Game Night In + BBQ Chicken Pizza

Good Eats (Camaraderie) Cold season officially arrived at our house this past week, and it showed no mercy wiping Lily and I out. We spent the week in comfy pants, resting, snuggling, and taking medicine. As the week progressed I was anticipating date night more…

Stuffed Lobster + Reminiscing Part II

Stuffed Lobster + Reminiscing Part II

We finally did it. After sitting for three and a half years on our 30 Things Before We Turn 30 list (more on that later), we finally crossed it off. We cooked live lobster in our very own kitchen! Of course, now the lobster is…

French Pressed Coffee & Girl Scout Cookies + Night In

French Pressed Coffee & Girl Scout Cookies + Night In

Britt and I are coffee snobs. By snobs I mean we don’t like the taste of coffee at all, but can manage it with a hefty amount of creamer. So we’re actually the exact opposite of coffee snobs. Is there a word for someone who…

Britt and I are big-time budgeters…eh, big time might be a bit much…most of the time we’re budgeters. We allot $50 a month for our date nights and begin our new budget on the 15th of each month. We had $5 left for this weeks…

Two Months In

Two Months In

Four months ago, the average date night planned by yours truly was a last-minute scramble and oftentimes peaked by watching an episode of The Office together (nothing against The Office). Date nights seemed to feel more like a night off and not an intentional, oneness building…

Indoor Camping + Sawmill Gravy

Indoor Camping + Sawmill Gravy

The first 40% of camping is awesome, the other 60% we could do without. Britt and I have camped out twice in our nearly five years of marriage. We love everything about camping until 10:00pm. At that point we feel it’s the perfect time to pack up…

Garlic Shrimp & Masher Cakes + Valentine’s Campfire

Garlic Shrimp & Masher Cakes + Valentine’s Campfire

Good Eats (Camaraderie) Note to Self: Garlic Shrimp, Garlic Potatoes, and Coffee aren’t great Valentine’s Date Night ingredients. Don’t repeat in 2014. Hindsight says Mint, Chai, Chocolate, and Cinnamon are better for Date Night. Garlic & Coffee lead to less than desirable results. Good Eats Masher Cakes…

Five Thoughts for Valentine’s Day

Five Thoughts for Valentine’s Day

The National Holiday lineup can sometimes feel like running through a gauntlet where everything is connected and one neglected step triggers chaotic madness for whoever is running. We’ve had a few of these holiday gauntlet runs over the years. Some are filled with incredible joys…
