Alphabet Dating: A

When Kaitlyn introduced Alphabet Dating, I was super excited. First off, I love going on dates with the hubby and second, I love doing new dates! Perfect combo if you ask me. Ross thought the idea was genius whenever I told him about it too. In fact, the other day, he goes, "Oh! I thought of an awesome date for the letter I." What a cutie.

So, without further adieu, I present our "A" date:
 
Our day was spent going to downtown Austin, Amy's Ice Cream, and the Arcade. SO MUCH FUN! Seriously! I earned some major wifey points... just sayin'.

Amy's Ice Cream is one of my favorite ice cream places ever! I always get the same thing because I'm boring like that, but I know what I like. My ice cream of choice is Belgian chocolate with cookie dough mixed in. Okay, my mouth is officially watering.
If you're lucky, they'll even do neat tricks when they're putting the ice cream into your cup. Totally tip-worthy.

Our favorite part of the date was definitely going to Dave & Busters! Who doesn't love this place?! I hadn't been since I was a wee little girl.
We walked in and our eyes got really big. So.Many.Games. Ross was in heaven, that's for sure. We did just about every game there was. We "rode" a virtual roller coaster. Did Skee ball. Pin ball. Wheel of Fortune  And everything in between.
Skee ball is easily my favorite game. I am pretty good too. But I definitely don't compare to Ross. He only won like 531 million tickets. I kid you not, that man has some skillz.
Skinner Winner.
I forgot to mention that we even got a workout - or at least I did. Try shooting basketballs into a moving hoop for one minute straight. And if you're short like me, expect to jump every time you shoot a ball. Let's take a lookie at my ballin' hubby, why don't we?
We ended our day date with some brewskies and headed home. Sorta perfect, in my book.

  12. This is a great idea. I swear I am married to Mr. Indecisive when it comes to choosing dates so I'm gonna spring this on him next time we have a date night. And be difficult and give him some letter like Q. :)

  17. Beautiful pictures! Just another attraction to Texas for me! :) We've been alphabet dating since January (every other week) and we're loving it! I love it when my husband says something like, "I have a great idea for the letter ___" too. It's funny how into it you can get. Plus the different dates help you to get to know each other better.
