Love, Fun and Football: The Week That Got Away

Jul 18, 2014

The Week That Got Away

I'm going to keep things short and sweet today because I'm just too darn tired to do anything else. There, I said it! This week got away from me a little bit. It's funny how weeks will go by where I do nothing but go to work and come home every day… and then all of a sudden a week like this happens and I barely have time to catch my breath!

Work is really picking up and this may come as a shock to some of you-- but football season has basically started! Well, it officially will next week when we kick off training camp. So the office is a busy, busy place right now. It does make the days go a lot faster though, so I'm definitely not complaining. Just excuse my glazed-over eyes.

Besides being busy at work I squeezed in the Cincinnati blate, two of Jared's softball games and a fun night with my girl Lacey last night. It's made for some late nights, but they've all been worth it. I've been feeling some very real loneliness lately, but I definitely made up for lost time and crammed in all the girl-time possible in the past few days. I needed it in the worst way.

And now? I need some time with my husband in the worst way. As we were getting ready for bed earlier this week, we couldn't remember the last time we did a classic "dinner and a movie" date. That seems to be the opposite of other people… the ones who say that's all they EVER do. I think the last dinner/movie we did was Thanksgiving weekend when we saw Catching Fire in theaters. So tonight, if you need me, I'll have one hand laced with Jared's, and the other hand in the popcorn. Enjoy your weekend, friends!

  6. Sounds like so much fun! We aren't really a dinner and movie couple, we usually stay in and watch reruns of Chopped, but it's fun too.

    Glad you were able to see your ladies, girlfriends are amazing!

  7. Josh and I rarely do the dinner and movie date. You can't talk during movies or people get mad, and I like to talk. ha. We tend to do dinner and coffee shop or something....

  8. Enjoy your date night :) We love going to movies (there's SO many out we want to see right now), but my husband is a cheapo so we normally day-date movies. Our tickets have gotten up to 10.50/person! So insane.

  12. Enjoy your date night! My hubby and I actually just went on a date last night. It's a little harder to find a sitter on the weekend, but weeknight dates can be fun to. We just went to dinner, but it was so nice to take awhile, have 2 glasses of wine, talk to each other face to face without being interrupted by our toddler. It's good to invest time in each other!

  15. I'm SO sad I'm not there for training camp! :( I was there for training camp last year when they were filming Hard Knocks so now I've been watching it pretending like I'm there again (and looking for myself on tv of course)! Enjoy your date tonight!!

  18. I think that's what made me the most sad about leaving our vacation in paradise and heading back to reality - not getting to spend as much time with Keith like we got to. But I have to have hope that that changes one day!

    Enjoy your weekend :)
