January 13th was the day he selected for us to have our January Date.
Our January Date consisted of us putting on our jammies (him=basketball shorts & a tee, me= leopard print onesie), going into the Man Cave (a magical place in the house that I'm not allowed to clean), letting him pick out what we listen to & BLARE it on his surround sound system, and play Monopoly Deal - his favorite card game. Last year, after he proposed, we started a score card on a plain index card, and used it to keep track of the all-time winner! So I made us a 2012 Score-Card to use & stuck it in the envelope.
We played Monopoly Deal & filled our cheecks with Starbursts. =)
So we played Monopoly Deal and snuggled with Zombie. He was full of snuggles that night!
But after I beat Mr. Robinson in the first game, he decided he didn't like that game anymore. And he wanted to play Pachisi of India, instead. It was a board game we got from my dear friend Lizzy for Christmas - because we are game people & he is obsessed with Indian culture.
While I was wining that game as well, Zombie chewed on my leopard-foot.
Mr. Robinson is a sore loser, so when I won THAT game as well...we played a baseball game on his play station. I'd never played it before and suggested (in the written date description) that he teach me how to play a PS game. He was DELIGHTED! And Zombie finally settled down in my lap. He was not interested in the learning experience at all.
So the January date was a success and I'm excited about February! I'm excited about him opening the envelope, about choosing a day, about going on the date, and about revealing it in a blog post. Before I leave y'all, I want to be honest.
