Now that we're settled and living together it's a lot harder than it used to be to go on dates. Most nights we don't get home until late and we're both so pooped we just snuggle up with Netflix and watch some episodes of whatever TV show we're obsessed with (until the new season if OITNB comes out we're hooked on PLL). Jacamo gave use a fab opportunity to have a date night in as part of the Shoeduction campaign!
A mysterious box popped through my mailbox and I was under strict instruction to hand it right over to B and let him do his thing. It took literally everything I have not to peek inside the box, but I refrained and I'm glad I did!
I was called upstairs to find a gorgeous candle lit bubble bath waiting for me (which smelled divine), and even a glass of wine on the side.
I don't know what was going on while I was having a lovely soak (I may, or may not have heard a knock at the door) but I was soon getting the smell of delicious food wafting up the stairs. I ventured down to find a delicious candle lit Chinese feast laid out at the table, plus more wine (duh!). We talked, we laughed and we stuffed our faces. It was actually really nice to just have a romantic dinner that wasn't rushed - we tend to throw our dinner down during the week because we're both so busy!
After polishing off our food we headed upstairs to get cosy. Out came a huge box of chocolates and The Notebook. We snuggled up and watch the movie together and I even got a relaxing shoulder massage with some delightful smelling oil.
Before settling down for a good nights sleep we giggled over the quips and anecdotes in the hilarious little Pillow Talk book that was included in the box. B really pulled off the most romantic of all date nights in!
I was even a bad blogger and decided that it was going to be all about the date and spending quality time with B - whenever we go out for meals the blogger in both of us is terrible for snapping away instead of actually enjoying each others company! Thank you so much to Jacamo for giving us this lovely opportunity to spend some time together and for sending all the lovely goodies in the mystery box!
