The Couple Who Plays Together, Stays Together

Pin It
I'm such a believer in the saying, 
"The couple who plays together, stays together."
because it's soooo important to want to have fun with your significant other!

I will be honest, Andrew and I have been lacking on this for a couple of reasons.
Reason number 1 being the fact that we've had only two weekends together in the last two months.
Sure, we've gone to dinner or grilled at our place,
but we haven't done anything exceptionally fun lately.

Andrew and I are going on 7 years {in January} and let's be honest,
sometimes it's hard to keep that fresh excitement there.
We both know we're committed, we're going to get married, have kids...
the whole deal.

I think it gets easy to fall into slumps, and forget to just have fun together.

So, on Thursday while we were working, Andrew texted me asking me to check out a Youtube video of an artist {aka a Techno/Electronic DJ type guy} Now, I am NOT a fan of techno. Andrew is. Sure, I love "house music" {David Guetta, Calvin Harris etc.} but real techno...no thank you! 

My initial thought was, 
HELL to the no.
But I stopped myself and realized that,
hey,
he wants to go...and heaven forbid it may just be,
FUN!

We went to Amon Tobin at the Orpheum Theatre in Downtown Minneapolis. It was more of a story through a light show...with techno music. We both thought it was an awesome concept, but we definitely got a little over-whelmed after an hour and a half. Regardless though, it was fun...and something different that I did for Andrew, because that's what love is all about. Being each other's other half even when you may or may not want to do what they want to do.

Classic car pic on the way to the show.
We walked from a friend's place. It was such a gorgeous night!
One of the sweet pics I got. And check out the video below if you want to experience insanity!

The same day Andrew asked about the show, I got an email from work telling me I won Twins Baseball tickets to Friday night's game! Of course Andrew was thrilled about this, but I was too! I really love baseball and love going to games in the new Target Field! 

Thanks to my work, we got awesome seats!
See? Told you! I love it when I can see the players faces and be more part of the action!
Of course I had to have a brewski.
Me and my hot date :)

Relationships are a lot of work.
Sometimes it seems like it's too much work.
But at the end of the day,
when you decide you want to spend the rest of your life with this person,
you have to make room for the silly and fun times...
because that's what will get you through the tough times,
and make you appreciate the person standing next to you even more!

Now, go have some fun! :)
