{Top Five} Friday

{Top Five} Dates with My Mister:
1. Arizona State Fair/ABBA Concert
The ABBA concert blew our minds. So good!

2. "This Is Not A Book" Date
Marcus got me this book for my birthday, because I was the founder and sole member of my movement. It was called the Anti-Boredom Movement. Whenever we got bored, we could just open this baby up and have an adventure...
This is not a book, this is an itinerary. 
1. Go to the closest park. --Pioneer Park
2. Spend 10 minutes looking at the sky. What do you see?:
A silver dollar moon, 2 airplanes, 1 star/satellite, 8 palm trees, 1 rainbowbeam producing light, musky blue sky, 1 purple and orange sunset (SUNS!), 1 dying tree, the breeze via dancing palm leaves.
3. Document yourself standing under a tree (photos, drawing, etc.)

4. Arrange something you find into a circle.--leaves

5. List the number of people you see: 30

6. Leave something of yours in a secret location.--My Lucky 
Seashell

3. Visual Stimulation
I made this date up. It was awesome. 
I told Marcus to think of a song that stimulated him, visually. One that really painted his imagination. He had one day to think of it. Once he had a specific song in mind we was to get it stuck in his head, whatever means necessary. That night when he came over after work I had paints and canvases out and our self-selected songs ready to play. We listened and painted what we felt. One word: Rad.
He chose a Coldplay song. I chose a John Denver song.

4. Kids Play
feeling old? act like a kid.
gourmet grilled cheese, fruit, and apple juice
build a fort. utilize the magic of the glowstick.
you'll have fun. i promise.

5.Shooting Range
According to my mother, we're distantly related to Annie Oakley, you know from Annie Get Your Gun! Basically she was amazing, and her love for shooting runs deeply through my blood. Marcus was surprised. That was fun.

My favorite date ever: (sadly not with my hubby) it was a prom: my date took us in an old land rover (like Steve's) to go pigeon shooting, we got stuck in a lake on our way back and had to use the powerwench, then we went to a bayou restaurant in Roberts and ate alligator (one of the other guys passed out there). Then drove to the prom in a tractor. Very Idaho! In college we used to do 4-square Fridays. Very fun!
