Ever since we made our big life change almost 6 months ago, Zack and I spend a lot more time together. Don’t get me wrong, we both love all the added time we are able to see each other at home and at work…but it is a big change.
Before we moved we both had separate jobs with almost opposite hours, we weren’t able to see each other a whole lot. It stunk big time. But now, seeing each other almost every second of every day (that’s an exaggeration) we have settled into some routines that can be a bit monotonous. Me, being a pretty random person, (and weird maybe?) I like to find little ways to spice things up. Not to worry folks, (mom) this is a G rated post…keep reading :)
To preface things, we live near a golf course… and we have to drive by said golf course every day to and from work. The other night we were driving home around 10pm and I got a brilliant idea.
We got home and once we were inside I told Zack to change into all his black ninja clothes, it was time for an adventure. He was probably confused—but did as I asked anyways… he’s such a great sport. As we were sneaking out the door in our ninja ensembles I grabbed the scissors, they were necessary for this plan of mine.
You see, I had been telling Zack earlier that day about how obsessed I have been with fresh flowers lately, and how one day when we have our own house and yard I want to keep a little vase in the kitchen to always have a couple fresh flowers displayed. Like these:
As we were driving past the golf course on our way home a noticed a huge patch of daffodils just calling my name. I’m sure you can see where this is going… Zack and I snuck down in the dark to the field of flowers and cut, just a couple, of beautiful daffodils to take home.
It was a sneaky little adventure.
It was a lot of fun. We laughed a lot.
And now, we get to look at these beauties.
Win-win situation… except for maybe the golf course, but I doubt they even noticed. And if by chance they did, I’m sure they wouldn’t mind knowing how much joy it brings us (ok, me) daily.
Sure Zack thinks I’m a bit crazy, but he knew that already going into this marriage so he’s stuck. :)
What was the last adventurous thing you did?
