Matt and I had date night last night and we had so much fun! I love it when Matt takes the time to plan a special evening for us that is extra special. We have our standard Friday night date but that usually involves me still in my work clothes and him in a shirt and jeans. Well usually once every month Matt will plan a special night and we get a little dressed up and we go out and do something fun. Last night we had dinner at The Cheese Cake Factory (with their yummy 30th anniversary cheesecake)

After dinner we headed to Richardson to the Eisman center for a wonder spin off of Cirque Du Soleil but called Cirque Soleil montage. It was AMAZING! I had so much fun and I have some much respect for what these people can do with their bodies!!! I mean it is good for me to be able to touch my toes and these girls and guys were bending and using thier bodies in ways I could not imagine. The Eisman center is really nice and I look forward to seeing some different shows there in the future. While we were there we also saw Adam Smith and a friend and Jen and Eric times!

Just a Swing'n

Matt and I had a relaxing weekend and spent some good time together just hanging out. On Saturday we went to Chair King and bought this new tree/porch swing:) We have such a beautiful and BIG Live Oak in our front yard and I thought that a swing would be the perfect touch to our yard. Matt and I spend a lot of time outside working in the yard and visiting with our great neighbors and now we have a place to sit in the front yard. I took several pictures of the swing. Thanks to my Mom, Matt, Todd and our neighbor Bryan the swing is now level and in just the right place. Matt and I tried to hang it by ourselves but our ladder was not quite tall enough to hang the right side of the swing....Matt suggested that I climb up the tree and hang out on the limb to hang it and I told him he married the wrong girl for that type of work:) Thankfully we did not have trouble hanging it but then when the guys had to cut off the extra chain both Matt and Bryan cut their fingers a little with the saw (not bad just a little cut.) I was laughing because just minutes before that happened the guys were telling me that they were professionals and they did not need me:)....until they needed a band-aide:)
This is an up close shot of the pillows I got at Marshalls on clearance! My house is a lovely shade of baby blue and until I find an extra couple of grand laying around it will stay this shade for I am working with it....not gonna fight you baby blue:) These pillows were the perfect shade and they also had some other fun colors and a cute pattern so I got them for the swing and they add a nice touch.

Well you can call Matt and I old because now you might find us sitting in our front yard just swinging and watching the world go by from our front yard.
