Him and Her Golf Outing

By on May 20, 2017

Greg and I do a ton of activities together! We honestly just love to play and be together, and having all of these activities that we can do together brings us closer and makes our relationship what it is. We constantly want to add new activities, too, and then we are like oh my gosh our garage is going to be so full with toys (I can’t imagine what it will be like when we have kids lol)! Between the kayaks, hunting equipment, fishing poles, golf clubs, and camping stuff we have a lot of stuff to play with, and we are always trying to squeeze just one more thing in!

Anyway, we got our first round of golf in for the season, and it was ahhmazing! Perfect day and we actually had a pretty good round. Greg’s drives were totally on, and I think I’m finally getting the hang of using my wedge. Greg was giving me some one on one coaching on the course that totally helped. He would show me exactly what to do and then I would copy his moves, and my hits would be way better. We also played best ball so his drives and my puts helped us get a pretty good score- our teamwork was on!

I also think golf is the perfect activity for a couple to start together. I love it because you get to be out in the sun, wear cute, preppy outfits, it’s sporty, and I am obsessed with pink golf balls! It’s also relaxing because you can take it slow or fast depending on your mood, and the golf course is such a great place to connect with each other- I think it’s a little oasis of peace!

Having a hobby you can share totally brings you closer. You get to spend time together, get competitive, and work towards new goals together. My current golfing goal is being able to drive the ball further because I want to be able to get over the water hazards, and Greg wants his drive to be super straight.

After a weekend full of fun together Greg and I miss each other more than ever when we have to go to work! We’re always texting each other like “I can’t wait to see you again” or “only 4 more hours until we get to eat dinner together :).”

Hope you’re all having an amazing Saturday night! We went to Noodles for dinner and are currently watching some Netflix!

Sunday Sweetness

I hope you all had the most relaxing weekend! Greg and I sure did. For whatever reason last week felt so so long and somewhat stressful, and this weekend was exactly what we needed. Saturday night we cuddled on the couch, and I totally zonked out at like 7pm and slept like a full 12 hours! It was revitalizing, and I woke up the happiest ever! We also took it super easy this morning. We went and had french toast and omelets at the Times Past Inn , walked around Dick’s Sporting Goods, and then went out to Lake Evergreen for some fishing. It was so nice to just be able to chill and cuddle and relax together. Also, I am not so sure if I am ready for Monday to come yet lol. Can we just relive Sundays forever?! That would be the dream life.

Anyway, these pictures are from last Sunday (we took some today, too, but I felt like these should come first). Last week was just so crazy and got away from me, so here they are! We took a quick little fishing trip before dinner, and I absolutely loved this spot. This was at Lake Evergreen too, but we had to walk down this hill and over some rocks to get to it. It felt super adventurous. Greg and I are both so happy that fishing season is here, and now I am ready for some serious sunshine and dresses and taking the kayaks out!

And finally a few of my favorite things about Sundays….

  1. All the extra cuddles we have time for!
  2. Lighting a vanilla candle when we roll out of bed. It just makes our house smell so lovey dovey!
  3. Getting all dressed up for our Sunday breakfast dates! (Greg gets some extra sleep, and I get all dolled up. I love it!)
  4. The unlimited hot coffee at Bob Evans or wherever we decide to get breakfast 🙂
  5. Riding in Greg’s truck, listening to country, while we’re on our way to our weekly adventure.
  6. Ending the night with a great movie!

Gilson Beach Dreams

We fished  Lake Michigan in one of my favorite areas ever when we were up at my parents this past week! With a taste of spring in February, Greg and I took full advantage. We drove to Gilson Beach in Wilmette. Oh, and on our drive there we were listening to the top country songs of 2017 so far, and you have got to give God, Your Mama, and Me a listen! Just give it a click, and you can watch the cutest music video, too. We are playing it on repeat at the moment :).

We went in the evening time, and it had started to cool down. Luckily we had a blanket and Greg’s jacket in the car so we could still go on our little adventure.It was so fun walking in the sand and climbing the rocks to get to our fishing spot. All I could think about was how lucky I am to be with Greg taking in this beautiful scene and fresh air together. The water and sky were both iridescent, and we could even see the Bahai Temple! It was the perfect backdrop for Greg to tie a lure and throw his line.

We stayed there until it was almost dark, and one of my favorite parts was this cute little gate we had to walk through to get to the pier. It was one of those swinging gates, and Greg was so sweet when he made sure I wouldn’t get stuck!

Anyway, I hope you all have an amazing rest of your weekend and can totally relax! Greg and I are busy cuddling on the coach at the moment because it’s back to winter for now.
