Usually my husband and I don't buy each other gifts for Christmas. Rather, our tradition for the past four years has been a late November day trip to New York City. That trip didn't happen this fall for a variety of reasons (I'm holding out that we can make it in the spring!), so we had a local Christmas date night instead. My husband's idea was simple: bowling and dinner out. I loved it. So, that's what we did.
I wish all decisions were that easy!
For $31, we rented a lane and shoes for one hour. Here's one of our scoreboards (please excuse the steamy penguins and kitten - they were the only sticker options in my photo editing program that would cover Mr. G's name):
We hadn't been bowling in ages, and it was so much fun! (88 was my high score for the day - I'm terrible!)
Our super fashionable rental shoes:
Dinner was great. Steak for Mr. G (and I didn't have to go near it in its raw state - win!) and fried greens beans with a salad for me. Not quite the same as traditional Christmas presents, but so enjoyable. Mr. G even got photographic evidence of my poor form when wielding a bowling ball, which I'll have to add to our yearly photo album. I get the feeling we'll be laughing about all my gutter balls every time we look through it ;)
How do you and your significant other celebrate holidays?
