Did you all know that Fawn, creator of The Happy Wives Club is working to make National Husband’s day an official holiday? That’s right, her team is lobbying to make January 22nd an official day to honor, love, and celebrate our husbands. You can read all about it here. Once I read about this, I knew I wanted to celebrate it in our household official or not.
Since January 22nd falls on a boring Thursday this year, I decided to celebrate it this past weekend. I told my hubby that I was taking him out on a date, and he was excited because I was making the day all about him. He’d been wanting to see Gone Girl since it was released back in September. We never got around to seeing it; but imagine our excitement when we learned that it was still playing at the dollar movie! I didn’t even know dollar movie theaters still existed, lol!
He also loves a good pizza pie, so I took him to Brixx Pizza for dinner. It was located at The Avenues of East Cobb, which is a posh shopping complex in Marietta, Ga. Neither of us had ever been to Brixx, but I’m sure glad we tried it. They cook their pizzas on a wood-fire brick oven and brush the crust with olive oil! The pizzas are all 10’ so you each get your own pizza! I ordered the Americo (pepperoni, mozzarella, mushrooms, and I added bell pepper) and he had the 4x4, which was topped with a ton of meat! They were delicious!
I also did most of the driving, until it got dark! I have horrible night-time vision, so that was the best I could do. On a normal date, he does all of the driving, so I did as much driving as I could, so that he could get the royal treatment.
I shared some footage from our date night below. I finally pulled out my Canon PowerShot Elph 150 that I asked for this past Christmas. I tried my hand at editing, but I'm not perfect by a long shot, lol!
I hope you enjoy!
What do you think about National Husband’s Day?
Have you seen Gone Girl? Why y’all didn’t tell me how crazy that movie was? LOL
