"Common Ground": my little corner of the blogosphere where I talk (a lot-wink) about the things that matter most to me: My relationship with my Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ, homeschooling, adoption, homemaking, parenting, "spousing." (yeah, yeah....I know that's not a word.....I made it up-it’s my blog-I can do things like that! Ha!)

Since my life isn’t all that different from yours, hopefully we can find some COMMON GROUND & learn from each other. Please share your thoughts!

Through the Lords’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not.

They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness!
Lam. 3: 22 & 23

Wow! Was That Ever Fun!

Dave & I did something on Saturday night that we haven’t done-ever in our married life!

We went on a double date-just for fun!

(I can hear some of you now-why on EARTH would it take them 11 years!?!? Mostly, lack of a good babysitter-but Saturday night, my sister stepped in & saved the day!)

We have some super good friends here (Hi, Amy & Sunil!), that kept insisting that we should go out to this well-known fondue restaurant in the Springs.

Finally, after several years of hearing how good it is, we decided Saturday night was the night to do it!

My friend, Amy & I decided we were dressing up for this, too, since there were no kids going along!

&, you know what? I really should get out of the house a bit more, because as I was getting ready, I realized I was nervous!

Huh? Dressing up & looking nice made me nervous? What is up with that?!? (well, maybe I was really nervous because I have a bad habit of falling or twisting my ankle every time I wear heels! Ha! Seriously, on our cruise last year, I was walking along & suddenly found myself on the floor on all fours! How embarrassing!)

Anyway, the night out on the town delighted in every way.

The Christmas lights.

The dimly lit restaurant with soft Christmas music playing.

The company.

The conversation. (No screaming children, spilled food, or general chaos anywhere around! Not that we mind those things most of the time, but once in a while, it’s nice to have an adult conversation while eating!)

The food! (yummy-a bit overpriced, but, heh! It was worth it for the atmosphere!)

All in all, a wonderful double date-& something I think all married couples should make a habit of doing!

Do you double date much if you are married?

Sounds like a fun evening! We used to double date when we lived in Pittsburgh nearer to our friends. We haven't been on a double date in ages.

I'm glad you were out for fun as grown-ups. :) Keep it up!

We double or triple date on and off, but it IS hard to pull it off with schedules and babysitting.

I'm so glad you did this! You all look smashing! (that is such a Susan Hull word, huh?) =)

"Hi Amy and Sunil!"

Double Date?????? Oh dear Kim....36 1/2 years later....never have LOL...and now were happy to just sit home in peace and quiet.

Sure sounds like fun! You all look Fabu! =) It was nice to meet Amy and Sunil when we visited in September- I was bummed that I didn't have more time to get to know them and the rest of Eunice's family since I was so busy catching up with my Langness relatives. Glad you guys are investing in friendships and spouseships! It takes time and effort, but it's always so rewarding...
Did you go to the Melting Pot? Charlie and I went to the one on the Plaza for the first time for our anniversary this year. We didn't feel like killing 3hrs so we just had dessert. I think now that I know more about it and what to expect it would be more fun the next time.

Kim & Dave said...

Yeah, Tina, I think it was made better by going with good friends.

Jenica-"smashing" is a "Susan word", you're right! Thanks for the compliment!

Pam-I guess we were in good company-ha!

Sarah-we went to the Mona Lisa in Manitou. It was so worth all the time there!
