Mother/Daughter Date Night

Hailey and I do spend a lot of time together, but we decided to do an official Mother/Daughter Date Night this last Friday.  We have been taking a mother/daughter bible study called Raising Little Women of God.  The books we are following suggested doing a special date night, so that’s what we did!

I actually took Friday afternoon off from the bank because I had an appointment at the college I attend with the Assistant Dean.  I picked Hailey up a half hour early from school so she could come with me.  More about that appointment later!

After the appointment Hailey and I headed to our favorite restaraunt, The Olive Garden.  We love going there and I have been taking Hailey to eat there since she was 3 years old.  We don’t go too often because it’s kinda pricey, so we knew this was the place to go for our special dinner!

After eating way too much for delicious dinner we headed back home.  Hailey put on a little show for me singing and dancing.

After the entertainment portion of the evening, we snuggled into our comfy clothes and cuddled up on the couch to watch one of our favorite shows, Bewitched.  This show has been one of my favorites for as long as I can remember and I am happy that Hailey is into it now too!  Normally I do not allow Jackson on the couch, but sometimes he wiggles his way up and cuddles so quickly and by the time I see him he is too darn cute!

Hailey wanted to make us a special snack.  She made healthy yogurt parfaits.  My sister came to teach our girl scout troop about nutrition and she showed the girls how to make these.  Hailey loves to make these at home now all the time!

After watching a few episodes, eating some delicious home made popcorn sprinkled with garlic salt, and lots of snuggling with Jacksy and Marley, we called it a night!
