I'm Just Full of Surprises

Though nothing could ever top the infamous banya date, I planned another surprise date for Ryan a few weekends ago.  I know, two fun dates in a month--amazing, right??  I am quite impressed with myself and don't expect this sort of creativity and spontaneity to happen again any time soon.  Our typical Friday night consists of putting Noah to bed by 7:00 and then sitting around on our computers--sad but true.  Sometimes we watch a movie together, if we're lucky.  We're boring.

To break up the monotony, I bought a Groupon to the Ice Castles at Silverthorne.  Silverthorne is in the mountains about an hour and a half from our house, but there is nothing I love more than a  long car trip with Ryan (truly), so we made an afternoon/evening trip out of it!

Miraculously, Noah napped on the way there AND on the way home, so we had lots of time to talk and hold hands and watch the sunset over the mountains together.  Perfect.

And look at how beautiful the ice castles were:

I think the pictures make it look even cooler than it actually was, but we had a good time.  We also got Ryan some new stylin' outfits at the J Crew outlet, and we hit Beau Jos pizza on the way home.  Doesn't get any better than that!


  1. Gotta love Groupon, it has inspired many a random date. I don't know why I feel like I NEED to buy it just because it says it's 65% off.

  2. I'll admit, when I read "Ice Castles" I did not think they were going to be that amazing. Wow!

  3. Wow that is gorgeous! What a fun date.

  4. Looks very cool- glad you had a nice day out!

  5. Funnest! Your nights sound EXACTLY like ours. :)

  6. And ours! Which is even more pathetic because we don't even have kids. :)

    That looks sweet - why haven't I ever even heard of that??


I love hearing from you!! Thanks for the comment!
