Date Your Mate - Week 11

Last week, when I was indulging in one of my guilty pleasures, I came upon a paperback, pocket dictionary. At the time, I didn't know what I would use it for....but it was too good to pass up, and I tossed it in my basket. 99 cents, Peoples! How can you not buy anything HALFWAY decent when it costs only 99 cents?! (This very statement could be reason in itself for a whole different kind of Date Your Mate post. Remember that "Pet Peeves" one I was promising awhile back?? But I digress.....)

After the past few months hiatus...I was a little uninspired when it came time to get serious about focusing on this challenge again. Then I remembered my 99 cent, no reason, purchase and a flash of brilliance came over me.

Date Your Mate Challenge Week 11 - "Define Your Love"

Get yourself to the nearest 99 cent store....dollar spot...bargain depot...and buy yourself a pocket dictionary. (This One is not quite a dollar, but still a total bargain for not having to leave the couch!) Quickly thumb through the pages and highlight every word you see that makes you think of your mate.

Neon Yellow is all over these words in mine:

Good
Teeth
Truck
Destiny
Deltoid
Safe
Mexico
Polaroid
Friend
Football
Ocean
Commitment
Distance
Gift
Science
Dream
Faith
Honesty
Love
Fun
Want
Trust
Father
Forever
Marriage
Sushi
Smile
Dedication
Warm
First
Only
Right
Make
Babies
Sunshine
Happy
Rock
Example
Unconditional
Daughter
Son
Complete
Purpose
Blessing
Meant
To
Be
Us
More

I tied it up with a cute, bright bow and tagged it with this: "Words can't describe what you do to my heart...but it never hurts to try! Let's get our VERB on!" A little Dorky? Maybe...but I'm okay with that. For HIM, I'll be a dork any day!

Are you up for the Challenge? Go get YOUR verb on and have fun!
