On most weekends, Bill and I stay in.
Over the past five months of official coupledom, we've created a pretty reliable routine of hanging out every Saturday, and being as laid back and chill as possible.
We stay home, we kiss through movies, we get take out or fast food and we enjoy the moments where we feel like blissed out loved birds as much as possible.
It's been lovely.
But every once in a while, we venture out and brave the big bad world. In other words, we go actually do something.
This was one of those weekends.
And to my pleasant surprise, it turned into a lovely, relaxing date weekend, with a pretty stellar guy.
Chambord Margaritas, shrimp guacamole tostada bite apps and delicious hot corn bread at Z Tejas Saturday night, and then an afternoon drive up to Cave Creek, for lunch at the Horny Toad and some exploring through the eclectic shops in downtown Cave Creek.
As you can see, they love their cowboy boots up in there.
If you'd been a fly on the wall this weekend, you may have heard one or two of these gems:
"We quit while we're ahead in this relationship!"
"You have a bigger elbow bone than me. That's good to know." -Bill
"One of us is sitting in the middle seat when we fly somewhere on vacation, and it's not me." -Bill again
"I'e always wanted baby pigs" - Me, "That's funny because I've never wanted baby pigs" -Bill "We have everything in common" -Me
"You don't have to worry about me leaving you. I hate first dates." -Bill
He's a funny dude, that Bill.
Cheers, to a lovely date weekend.
