A Little Last Minute Love....Update

What did we end up doing on our romantic Saturday evening date? Well, my sister Emily is in town so Saturday afternoon she helped me brainstorm and shop for my little plan.

I took Shane out to the movies and we snuck in hamburgers and sodas. (I know, we're so bad.) While we were out, Emily (who was also taking care of her baby, my baby and Lydia)....... grabbed the basket full of the supplies we had gathered and......

Set up a tent in the backyard....

Filled it with our softest pillows and blankets....

Set out battery operated tea lights (even hung some from the ceiling)...

Arranged a tray with some incredible cupcakes from a nearby bakery..

Along with some sparkling white grape juice.

When we came home from the movies, I asked Shane to come to the backyard for a minute. He was very surprised. :) We even had the baby monitor on so we could stay out there until Collin woke up to nurse. It was fabulously romantic. We needed it. Thank you Emily. You're the best!

No ice blocking? Humph. Well, I get Emily next! This weekend she's mine, so enjoy her while you can! I must say, I do have very cool sisters.

No. No ice blocking. Sitting our private parts on ice for a few hours isn't really our style of romantic.
