Date Your Mate - Week 5


Date Your Mate Challenge


I'm kinda cheating with this week's challenge because it's something that Matt and I already do. But it's still FUN! It's actually one of my favorite parts of every Friday. (Also - I still want to squeeze in some more "playtime" from last week, so I went easy on myself this week!) AND...I added a song to the blog today. It's the first song to play on another blog that I love to visit everyday....and each time I hear it, Baby, it's fact, I think of YOU!

Date Your Mate Challenge - Week 5 "Lunch Buddies"

This week challenge is to make a lunch date with your husband. It's fun to see your mate in the middle of the work day. You both are out of your usual "relationship" atmosphere and because there tends to be limits that come with lunch during the work week, you can enjoy the formality and flirtation that comes with these boundaries.

I usually take Matt lunch at work on Fridays. He's a teacher and we eat in his classroom, at the lab tables, during his 30 minute lunch "hour." You can imagine the limits and boundaries we have being on a high school campus surrounded by his students. He barely kisses me goodbye, even when the classroom is empty! But it's fun to have a quick 30 minutes to connect at a time in the day we wouldn't normally see each other. We usually try and take this opportunity to talk about things we don't usually get the time to talk about....and enjoy the lack of interruptions!

Are you up for the Challenge? Grab some take out or pack a sack lunch, and get Lunching!

I agree. It's fun to see your husband in their professional atmosphere. Where's Wyatt on these days?

Mike will have to bring me lunch to my classroom!!! I am going to have him come on Wednesday and I'll let you know how it goes.

Wy comes along - he just toddles around the classroom and looks at all of Matt's animals.
