Date Night "V"

To be perfectly honest, I'm starting to feel like our ABC date nights are never going to end.  We are both stalling with these last few letters and they seem harder than ever. Nevertheless, we soilder on.  It's hubby's turn and he chooses to go out for pizza. Veggie Pizza. 
Hubby is a meat lover, so his concession to veggie pizza for the sake of the letter "V" is no small thing  Gotta give credit where credit is due!

While waiting for our pizza to come, hubby pulls out a notebook and gives us each a piece of paper.  He instructed me to make a list of the top five accomplishments I value most.  Now, for some people this may seem easy, but I was stumped.  Hubby is quickly compiling his list and I am sitting there feeling kind of lost.  Eventually, I did come up with a few.  One being that we raised some pretty terrific kids.  It's kind of hard to think of that as an accomplishment, BUT, I guess it counts....right?  I sure hope so since that's what I spent over twenty five years of my life doing!  It's hard to believe how fast that time went and even crazier, that we are now grandparents!  So, we spent some time talking about our lists.....It's surprising the things we learn about each other when we do these sorts of things.  Amazing, in fact, the conversations that we have when we're away from home and the distractions there, especially the TV!

Because Hubby's date nights usually always include food there was only one natural conclusion to this date: Vanilla Ice Cream!
We spent the rest of our time talking about dream vacation destinations.  Hubby wanted to plan a vacation for this year but since we are already going on a family vacation this summer with all the kiddos, we decided we would delay our next trip until 2013.  One of the downfalls of being self employed is there isn't any paid vacation time.....but it gets balanced out with the perk of getting to be the employee of the month EVERY month!  In any event, we have some great ideas and lots of time to think and dream about Vacation 2013!  Vegas?  Virgin Islands?  Venice?  The possibilities are endless!
