A Little Break from it All...

This last Friday I worked until 5 PM and Garrett worked until 6 PM. I was planning on making dinner and picking up the house a bit when I got home...that didn't exactly end up happening. I was so exhausted when I got home I just wanted to rest a little bit, so I plopped down on the couch and started to watch one of my fave shows, Fraiser. Before I knew it Everybody loves Raymond came on and I stayed on the couch. I hadn't gotten anything done when Garrett walked in the door. The first thing I said was, "I'm really sorry, but I haven't started dinner yet." He just said, "That's ok because we are going out." He then informed me that he wanted to take me on a date and that we need to take a little time to focus on eachother during this busy time.... You have to understand that Garrett doesn't usually just come home from work and tell me that we need to spend time focusing on eachother! Don't get me wrong he is very romantic and we spend lots of quality time together, but usually it is me who initiates it. I was very happily surprised. So, we got ready and headed out. Our home team had given us an American Express gift card the night before since it was our last home team. :( So we used a little bit of that money for our little date. We went to Arby's for dinner and got the 5 for $5.95 deal. It was very yummy. :) Then we went to Office Depot to get some of our school supplies. This part was fun for me, but Garrett probably could have passed on the shopping. Then we went to Kathryn Albertson's park and took some pictures before the movie started @ 9:20 PM. We went and saw Hairspray...all I can say is I loved it! We were both busting up laughing! It was just so lighthearted and had a good message...we left feeling encouraged. That is rare now-a-days with movies. Plus, I love is a secret dream of mine to be in one...I guess it isn't a secret anymore, though. :) Anyways, we just had a really good night together. It was something both of us really needed during this hectic time in our life.
This last week and this next week are weighing me down! There is so much to do before we leave that I can't think straight. I think this calls for one of my famous To-do lists.
Just to inform everyone, Garrett and I leave Monday August 13th for Portland, OR! It is coming up quickly...our lives are about to change...big time!

Anyways, here are some of the pics we took at the park on our date:
