On a lighter note

I love going on dates with my husband but with life as crazy as it is I spend more time wishing for a date than going on any.  Here is a list of my top 5 fantasy dates.

1. going wedding cake tasting
With a 3 month engagement there were somethings we didn't get to do so I've always thought this sounded like fun. ( I wonder if it's like wine tasting but they let you keep the plate?

2. going on a midnight picnic.
This one started while we were dating.  I challenged Phillip to a game of "Battleship" and he said if I beat him he would take me on a midnight picnic in a golf course (because they are the best and most beautifully maintained parks around!).  Hasn't happened yet but I'm sure it will some day.

3. going camping together.
this one is more romantic to me than to him but I think a hike up to Domke Lake (the only way to get to this high altitude lake is hiking) and a couple days fishing in the warm clean deliciously clear glacial runoff lake would be fun.  Oh, and the only way to get to the bottom of the 5 mile trail up to the lake is by boat so it is ultra solitary and serene ... or at least that is how I remember it.  I haven't gone there since my senior year in high school.

4. spending the weekend in a yurt.
like camping but a little easier and lower maintenance

5. going "gunkholing" through the San Juans
there are tons of tiny little islands in Washington and cruising from island to island is called gunkholing.  It's a great way to explore, fish and sight see.

That's just the top 5 and I know each of them are more elaborate but I find romance in the thought fullness that goes into all the planning. How about you? What's your dream date?

My "dream date" probably changes depending on my mood, but I would LOVE to go to one of those fancy schmancy spas that you see in the movies where people wear those big fluffy white robes around and spend the day getting massages and facials...mmmmmm...oh yeah, Andy can come too! :)

i don't know...i'll have to think about that one, but the pet issue. i totally agree with you. there is a lady who walks her little dog around in a stroller and i hate to admit it, but i'm always tempted to run the stroller over. terrible of me, but it BUGS me to no end when i see her. looks like you are having so much fun! i'm envious.

oh Joy, I'm dying of laughter! Whatever happened to taking a dog for a walk? their legs work don't they? You'll have to restrain yourself with that poor little dog even though it probably has better health and life insurance than I do :)
