There I was at work Friday afternoon, and realized Caleb and I had no plans at all for the night. So, I sat at my desk, and took it upon myself to start brainstorming free or cheap date night ideas for us to get into once we were off work. I text him this fun idea about using our gift cards for a movie/dinner date night, I was set on it. I would buy sour patch kids and he, the popcorn...and we'd see Frozen. It was just going to happen.
Until... "umm...babe, I've got a night planned with the guys, didn't I tell you?" happened.
So, instead of getting sad because my hypothetical plans had just crumbled right before me...I decided to embrace a night in, alone. I could've asked any number of my ladies to hang, but I decided I really needed a night off from everything. To sit, grab some food, sit in my comfy clothes and do whatever the heck I wanted.
What did I decide to do first? Be a fatty. Grab Chickfila. DONE.
Then...find my husband's comfiest clothes and get into them immediately.
Next? Facetime with my sweet friend Becky and plan out what we'll do when she comes to visit me next month! Still can't believe girlfriend bought a plane ticket and thought hanging out with me for an entire weekend sounded like a good idea ;) but I'm thankful she did.
Next? I decided I'd attempt drafting a few blog posts...until that didn't happen because I got distracted by Pinterest.
Then Erin found me on g-chat and we spent the next 3 hours (or more...I'm not kidding) acting like 14 year old on AIM. Sending each other hilarious pictures of ourselves, and essentially planning out the rest of our lives. Yes, we're that cool.
The next day was full of family, drinking a not-so-fancy-only-a-dollar Starbucks coffee, and hanging out with cute pups!
My point of this silly post? Friday nights in by yourself aren't too shabby. Take it from me, I had a blast all by my bad self. Hope your weekend was a success!
