Last week's Fun Friday was one of the best yet, in my humble opinion, because it involved all the good things that a really great gift should: nostalgia and quality time.
What Andrew got:
When Andrew and I first started dating, he had this amazingly comfy pair of Old Navy pajama pants. When we were watching TV one night, I'd forgotten my sweats, and so he offered me the pajama pants. Even though they were enormous, I fell in love as soon as the soft cotton touched my skin. From then on out, they were simply referred to as "Pants" and we would have silly wars over them: whoever put them on first at night got to wear them and I even took to hiding them so that I automatically got to wear them.Because Pants were old and very well-loved, they started ripping, until finally, they were totally inappropriate, due to the giant HOLE in the crotch. Sadly, they were retired. I own a million pairs of sweats, so for Fun Friday last week, I got Andrew new pajama pants. They are soft and comfy, and I'm doing my best to NOT steal them. At least not yet. And while I will always miss old pants, I'm hoping that these will become just as near and dear to our hearts.
What I Got:
Ever since I saw the preview, I've wanted to see "Where The Wild Things Are." Andrew got us tickets to see it on Sunday night. This was especially fun because I am a teacher, and had been on Fall break for the two weeks prior. It was fun to end my break with a date night. The movie was great, and I loved that my gift involved us spending time together.
