I've been trying to soak up as much "Chase time" as possible before little one arrives to rock our world and sleep schedules. Even evenings spent watching Duck Dynasty while eating a home cooked meal is special & sacred time these days. With Chase's work & school schedule and my odd, yet sometimes flexible "work from home" schedule, days off are few and far between around here, especially when we're both able to not work for a whole day on the same day.
One of my favorite ways to spend days off is exploring with Chase. In the summertime, warmer temperatures and nicer weather allow us to go for hikes and such. In the winter, we like to explore cities/towns that we don't live in. It's a fun way to date my husband without a typical dinner out date night. A few weeks ago, I decided to surprise Chase and drive up to Fort Collins for the day...with a stop at Daylight Donuts in Longmont, of course.
I had a day planned of a brewery tour ((which were full both times we showed up)), lunch date at our favorite place in town, a cupcake pit-stop, some time to stroll around in the sunshine, and what I thought would be a nice sache through a flower garden ((pansies were promised on their website)) turned out to be a dud and so we cruised around one of the art museum exhibits on CSU's campus. It was so fun to just spend the day being silly and care-free with the love of my life.
No flowers, but COFFEE FUEL ((and plenty of sunshine))!
We shared a buffalo reuben (YUM!) on the patio at Choice City with our preferred beverages of choice.
No cameras were allowed, oops. I just loved these retro chairs!
I pose. Chase climbs. Typical. I better get used to our Little One being just like him. :)
We each got a chocolate stout cupcake from Butter Cream Cupcakery. Win. I'm not kidding about whose was whose. I'm eating for two, ya know ;)
What's your favorite way to spend a day or a date night with your husband?
