Battleship & Smore’s Dip

I have two words: Battleship and Smore’s dip. 

You know, the notorious and completely nostalgic guessing game that exterminates your fleet of ships, dawning a mix of heart palpitations and childhood bliss only amnesia could erase. Plus this ingenious remix of deconstructed smore's had me swimming in delight. Decadent dark and milk chocolates layered together and topped with airy marshmallows, toasted to perfection and scooped up by those slightly sweet but exquisitely crisp grahams. Seriously - all the feels. 

“Date Night In” is the epitome of relaxation for me. The introvert in me bursts with delight as I relish the evening of creativity I am endowed with. The PNW girl in me has a deep devotion for cozy sweatshirts and snug slippers that I get to burrow into - although, according to my hubby, the socks are kinda nerdy 🙂 Whatever the reason, for me, “Date Night In” releases the potential to cultivate a vast array of fresh flair and old school throw down’s; like Battleship and smore’s dip. 

Adam and I are in an intentional season of reaching towards each-other; remembering why we fell in love. I’ve been honest about this from day #1 - our connection hasn't been effortless but it has been fruitful. I used to belief that marriage should be “uncomplicated” or “easy” and if it wasn't - something was wrong. I now understand that everything we do in life, especially in our marriages, has two options: unintentionally drift apart or intentionally bond stronger. There is no in-between. And the latter, we have to fight for. 

We’re best friends and love each-other deeply, yet it can be so easy to forget why we chose one another and let the “little annoyances” steal our connection. Nights like this are the perfect reminder - plus I love how excited he gets when he wins (we actually tied ;)) Hence me hiding my face and then laughing so hard... I was so close to winning! It was a great way to move towards one another. 

How do you do “Date Night In?” 

Happy Fri-Yay!

    Any relationship worth anything will take effort and communication. Thank you for your reminder that it can be fun and silly. It can be a move from the mundane and take a step back to childhood. Our best relationship with Christ is that with a Child-like faith, so why not that same faith with our spouse. Unconditional love, laughter, and ultimately trust – but intentional in our pursuit. God bless you and your family, as you are intentional in your pursuit of Battleships, smores, each other and ultimately our Amazing Heavenly Father.

      Thank you! I can be so serious, so the fun side is very refreshing. I love your insight. We really do need child like faith with God and our spouses, its been a learning curve, but a fruitful one at that. Thanks!
