Andrew and I have a goal to not only go on dates every week, but to have an occasional date or Sunday dinner with other couples. This week, we had both.
Last night, we went out with the Lymans (Sara and Zach). Sara and I have been friends since we were 14 years old. We definitely supported each other through those tough, teenaged years. We survived through the boy drama and various unreliable friendships with late-night TP-ing attacks (usually to boys we were crushing on) and excursions to the beach, with our windows rolled down and music blaring through the speakers of my little Nissan Maxima. Although our friendship has had it's ups and downs, we have always seemed to come back to each other.
So now that I have Andrew as "my person", it only seemed right to go on a date with Sara and her husband, Zach, and create more memories and connections between the 4 of us. We ended up eating pizza at Malawi's and then painting at Color Me Mine in Provo. It was a truly wonderful night. We caught up on each others' lives, told stories, laughed our guts out, and the boys tried out a new activity. Andrew and I both agree that it was a great night, and we will definitely need to go out with Zach and Sara again :)
Tonight, we have invited two couples from our new ward to share dinner with us. I will be making Vodka pasta (see the "What's cooking" section for this amazing recipe), and our guests will be bringing salad and dessert.
While it's sometimes hard to find your place in a new ward, I love the opportunities we have already had to make new friends in our ward. I think that having a monthly (don't hold me to that) Sunday dinner with different couples will only help us deepen these relationships created at church.
So, all in all, life is good :) We have good friends and are anxious to form even more.
Andrew and Maichael
