Smeeks & A Movie

I don't know about you guys, but since Greg and I got married dating just isn't the same. We don't really plan ahead of time and it ends up just always being the same old thing. To me it doesn't really feel like a date because its just our weekly routine. I know I know those of you who have kids are probably thinking that we are lucky we even get to do things every weekend, but I figure if we master it now then we will be better at it when we have kids. So we decided to make more of an effort and plan dates ahead of time, make them unique and fun. Greg and I wrote down a bunch of things we would like to do for a date and put them in a jar. So every Sunday we alternate who picks one out and plans the date for the weekend. We keep it a surprise to add more excitement :). So yesterday I started us off. We went to this adorable candy store in phoenix called Smeeks...

We took pictures in the photo booth...

and we got some fun candy and cream soda for a movie....



We ended up going to Extraordinary Measures afterwards. It was a great movie. We loved going all out. I definitely recommend going to Smeeks sometime. It was the cutest store ever. It would be a perfect place to take the kiddies for a field trip, we loved it.
