Sweet little date nights.

The other night, Ryan and I went out to get fro-yo and when we got back in the truck
he asked if I wanted to take our treats home or eat them by the beach.
 Beach, of course. No contest there.
He backed into an oceanside parking spot and we sat in the bed of
his pickup and watched the waves crashing in
while we ate our frozen yogurt.
I even had the pleasure of wearing his dirty old coveralls when my legs got too cold
(and believe me, I was looking like hot stuff).
While I love getting all dressed up for a fancy night out,
casual (and spontaneous) dates like this have to be my absolute favorite.
It was almost like being in high school again, when we used to
cruise around town in Ryan's mom's mini-van.
(There's not much else to do when you grow up in a small town.)
In six and a half years, we've spent countless nights sitting at a park
with our frozen treats, just talking.
This night was just like old times,
except the view has gotten a million times better
and so have our haircuts.

  6. Well isn't this just the sweetest thing ever. At least you both ate ice cream together, that way our hardcore workout numbers will suffer equally.

  21. This sounds like the perfect date night to me -- I love our spontaneous and sweet dates more than the fancy ones, too. So lucky to be living right near the beach! xo

  23. ....and so have our haircuts.

    Listen Andrea. You should know I accidently colored my hair purple, like last week. So I was talking to my best friend today and I said, I am having such a good hair day.. "Shay, you can't have that with purple hair."

    I thought you would appreciate this. You should also know from here on out I will simply call you Ice Cream.
