"just call me Russell Crowe"

when you see this face you know he does NOT want to be taking a picture :)

Once you've been married for awhile, how often do you get to surprise your spouse with a date?!  For us.... that's rare!  I was so excited because I was actually able to surprise Eric with this date!!  We spent the day with Trevor and Alycia (my brother and sis-in-law) and had such a great time!  I'd seen Alycia blog about shooting arrows with Trevor and I knew Eric would love it!  I was right :) 
Shooting arrows is quite the workout!  I was definitely feeling the whole time.  Makes a girl feel pretty weak haha!  But seriously, I loved shooting as well!  I hope this becomes a hobby for the both of us!  The problem is, Eric and I are both right handed, but left eye dominant.  Which means it feels more natural to shoot guns/bow and arrow right handed, but we have to do it left handed.  Well they don't have left handed bows to rent out so needless to say, Eric and I were shooting blind half the time :)  Maybe we'll have to wear eye patches over our left eye?  We'll be pirate-robin hood's :) 
Anyway, we had such a great date!!  Thank you Trevor and Alycia!  (speaking of Trevor and Alycia, no pictures with them :(  I have to be better about taking pictures!)  It was funny, Eric kept telling us "just call me Russell Crowe" then we would all talk about how we didn't really care for that movie.  But let me show you a little secret...

I'm the only one who shot right through the middle x!  Woo woo :)  I'm hoping we get to do this again real soon!  Then you'll be seeing us with our pirate patches on ;)

P.S.  How was the weather for you over the weekend?!  Ours was...

I bet if I had a clue how to edit this could be a really great picture haha
This snow is not my cup of tea.  I'm definitely a desert girl all the way!  Please send some warm, sunshine rays my way :)
P.P.S.  A huge thank you to Lesley at Ireland Ever After for awarding me with the Stylish Blogger Award.  I am definitely feeling the blog love :)
