an at home date

so this weekend we had two whole days with highs in the eighties. after who knows how many days of brutally hot not even worth knowing the temperature because it might make you cry .. 88° feels like pure heaven. and it was the first tailgating weekend so the weather was basically perfect. RT and i love to have people to the house on game day. we live about seven steps from the stadium of the college we went to so you can literally hear the game plain as day when we are hanging out on the back porch. RT usually grills or smokes something and i make all the sides and we all just hang out and enjoy the football company. as far as we are concerned the more the merrier. our team kicked major booty this weekend too and RT's parents were in town so it was extra bonuses on every end!

yesterday at church the sermon was on being burned by marriage .. or any relationship but he was referring to marriage specifically. RT and I have a great marriage and we are in a super happy place right now but it got us taking on the way home. one of the things we agreed on was that we want to date each other again. I know you hear about this all the time .. date your spouse. but we decided to seriously make a priority of it. one of the things that RT said that I absolutely loved was that when we were dating .. if I suggested we go to a movie he never would have said maybe tomorrow hunny I'm tired tonight .. {ha!} it's funny but also so true.

so last night .. ironically we were both really tired and didn't want to go out and do anything .. soooo we had date night at home. I made giant buffalo tostadas {recipe inspired by and adapted from skinny taste link} for dinner .. yum!


and we snuggled up on the couch to watch the movie safe house on pay per view. it was so fun!! seriously!! even though we stayed home we still got out of our normal "anything good on dvr" routine and ordered a movie. we turned off all the lights so it was sorta like being at the movie theater except it was much cozier .. a lot cheaper .. and the dogs got to come too. The only things we were missing were giant sodas and family sized packs of candy.

hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

happy monday!!
