August 19th marks 6 years since hubby and I tied the knot. 6 tends to be a lucky number for me, so hopefully our 6th anniversary will bring us luck! (Although 2016 hasn’t quite shaped up the way I’d hoped so far, but it’s still got plenty of time to turn around!)
Something I'm Thankful For: Hubby being cool enough to step out of his element a little. Okay, a LOT. I’ve always wanted to take dance lessons, so we thought it would be fun and romantic to take some Swing Dance classes. I bought a 4 pack of lessons from Groupon for a class that had 100% positive feedback (unheard of!), and we were going to kick off the first one the night before our anniversary.
Challenge O' The Day: Planning a romantic dance night, then realizing that the class involves constantly swapping partners. Whoops. Well, at least I now understand how the term “Swingers” has originated, right? O_o
Lesson Learned: Note to self: when ordering classes on Groupon, be sure it’s exactly what you’re looking for. The teachers are a whole lot of fun and are excellent instructors (with all my terrible mommy brain that I have going on, I didn’t forget the dance steps as soon as I walked out the door! That’s a major plus). I really enjoyed them, but it wasn’t quite what hubby and I were expecting. At least we could laugh about it while going out for a pre-anniversary dinner afterward! (Special thanks to my mom who babysat and my in-laws who treated us on their dime!)
Daily Insight: 6 years into our marriage, and it’s nice to know we have plenty of fresh, fun new activities to plan together. Such as finding a dance class where we can actually dance together! (If hubby will ever give me liberty to let me plan that again…)
