Date Night

After a rough week at work, I wasn't up for doing much during my weekly "date night" with the hubby. Fortunately, he's as happy as I am with a simple dinner out followed by a leisurely visit to a bookstore.

Tonight I left with two treasures...the new issue of Cloth Paper Scissors and a special one-time edition of Somerset in Love. This is the kind of reading I do these days. I love spending a little time looking through these type of magazines while under the covers...especially on cold winter nights like we're experiencing right now.

I love valentines and I'm sure the Somerset special edition will stimulate my creativity for months long after February is past. And how could I not buy the Cloth Paper Scissors? Not only do I love the magazine, but fellow blogger Jodi Ohl of Sweet Repeats has one of her projects featured in it. How cool is that? (something I would like to do in 2009!) You can also find Jodi's work for sale in her Etsy shop. Check it out!

So I'm ready to call it a night...I have some reading to do!

How awesome that you and hubby do a weekly date night! dinner and bookstore sounds just right to me too...and those magazines look divine! I sure hope I can get 'In Love' here, I was at our bookstore yesterday desperate for CPS, no luck yet. Enjoy your goodies!

Well you have an ideal man if he enjoys a nice dinner out and a quiet trip to the book, if you all went to the craft store as well---then the date would be over the top, no doubt!

Thanks for the mention, Risa!! hugs,
