Relationship Challenge Weekly Recap

Relationship Challenge Weekly Recap

See Week 1 recap here and Week 2 here. This week was hard. There were two challenges I didn't complete.

Wednesday the 16

Go on a lunch date during the week together.


Today's the 20

Challenge each other in the kitchen by whipping up a meal with what you can find already in the pantry.

We get a lot of opportunity to eat out. And nothing compares to this date night so unless we were going for something special it feels silly to mention it. As for today's, we haven't done much cooking, lately. Besides salad. This is something we use to do a lot of, in fact I have a blog dedicated to all the recipes we have done in the past. But we just haven't felt like it. Food is evil right now, maybe one day I'll write why.

What I did write about was Healthy Living - also having to do with food but more geared towards our working out habits!

I reviewed everything to do with our wedding! This post took forever to write and Kevin kept adding things to it. And while it's not the most blog worthy post, it's information I wanted to remember.

I am having a hard time picking a favorite post this week because Old Memories and Board Games are pretty high up there. Remember the good times is so important to me and those two posts cover that well.

I think though my favorite post was Bookstore Shopping Adventures, mostly because I didn't realize how many book selfies I took! Even after writing that post I still found more images!! I love books so much!

I am really looking forward to this next week and I hope you enjoyed this post! Let me know which one was your favorite!
