More Weekly Date Nights - Marriage & Relationship Goals {link up}

Happy June, everyone! Can you believe it's June? I sure can't! The beginning of June means a lot of things, but today is all about new Marriage Goals!

Last month, my main goal for my marriage was to go on an intentional date with my husband every week. And guess what, we did it! I set up rules, and for the most part, we followed those rules. So lets take a moment to look at those dates, shall we?
  • At the beginning of the month, we saw Age of Ultron. In fact, we saw it twice in one weekend.
  • The next weekend, we were in Searcy for my brother's graduation. I count the entire weekend as a date because we were constantly together and having fun with family and friends.
  • The next Saturday, we watched Pitch Perfect on DVD before heading to the theater for Pitch Perfect 2
  • Then, on Memorial Day Weekend, we bought a car and hiked the trails at Highbanks Metro Park.
  • And just this past Saturday, we went to the Village Bookshop. We thought about doing the Bookstore Scavenger hunt, but we decided to just explore because it was Pearson's first time there. Afterwords, we went to Jeni's because they've reopened after the listeria crises! Yay!
This month, I'd like to continue the intentional date nights. This may be a little tough because I have The Music Man rehearsals on week nights, but I still think we can do it. The dates must be intentional. Anything we would do anyway, like running errands or eating dinner, doesn't count. The dates must be planned ahead of time and they must happen outside of the our apartment.

Another goal I want to add this month is that I am not going to micro-manage Pearson. I don't think I do this that often. At least not out loud. But I've noticed a little in the past few weeks that I sometimes ask him to do something and get really mad when he doesn't do it exactly like I would have and I criticize every little thing he does in my head. Hello? He's a different person from me. He does things differently. And who am I to say my way is always better? Also, I'm not his mother. It's not my job to gripe at him to do things a certain way. I should be thankful he wants to help or he's willing to do something for me!

So those are my goals for June; weekly intentional date nights and no micro-managing/criticizing my husband!
