For FHE we played a game.
First game: Write A - Z and fill in the letters with something about the other person.
Ex: A - Always Smiling
B - Beautiful
We got some good giggles out of it.
Second game: We each have $2000 that has to be spent on your spouse. We wrote down what you would buy for them and estimate the costs.
What Derek would by for Amanda:
Camera - $700
3 swim suits, 3 shirts, 1 pair shoes - $300 (I think he forgets I shop at thrift stores...when I shop)
Couches - $600
Humming Bird Feeder - $20
Gift cards to Olive Garden/Zupas - $80
Crafting Material - $300
What Amanda would by for Derek:
Kindle - $120
Flat Screen TV - $600
Real Oakleys - $100
Weekend in Park City - $150
New Suit - $180
Weight Lifting Equipment - $200
Couches - $700
We both thought of things after the game was over that would have been on the list. Derek has been begging for an ant farm. I told him we can get one when we have a child so I don't have to explain to everyone why we have an ant farm. Jk. I secretly want one too. And he thought of a sewing machine. I want one so bad. Not quite sure where the humming bird feeder came from?? It must have come from my obsession with nature and animals.
Also, my brother was in the Charlotte Newspaper! We were super stoked, besides the fact that the article is about letting homosexuals into the military, and under his picture it talks about all of the soldiers saying "yes sir" to the idea of 'don't ask don't tell'.
He is the bald one, in the camo, with the gun. Jk. He is the tall one on the left that is the focus of the picture. Front and center! What a cutie!!
Happy Family Night to you all!
