I would always choose...

...a night in.

We are 
home 
bodies.


Friday came this week and we moaned and groaned about what to do.  I always feel some sort of unnecessary pressurized feeling to do something cool freaktastic awesome just because it's a Friday.  
So Mr. Murphy and I threw some ideas around.  We thought about going to Chicken and Waffles, we thought about going mini-golfing, we thought about venturing to the $ theater.  But all of these things required jeans or some sort of pants that are definitely not better than leggings paired with an over-sized shirt and tall socks.
So, we decided on a lovely evening with our new flat screen, ice-cream, and Hulu/Netflix.


I let the hubs pick out my outfit to go out for our evening trek to pick up our night-time treat.  I almost left the house in a purple shirt paired with some zebra heels. 
Almost.
I had to veto husband's shoe choice.

As we perused the ice-cream section in Kroger, Mr. Murphy came close to me and his warm soft hand slid into mine.  That moment may not have meant anything to him but to me it was unforgettable.  Everything got a little hazy and it felt so good. We stood there chatting about what flavors to get and in my mind I was saying this...

"I don't care what I am doing as long as I am with you. You make everything fun, everything interesting, everything exciting. Our life is amazing, is everyone this lucky?  The simplest thing makes for the most lovely of memories, and this is it. Having you makes every moment of life enchanting.  There is nothing in the world I would rather be doing than standing in front of the freezer section in Kroger holding your enormous comforting hand. Nothing."

The sound of New York Style Pumpkin Cheesecake Ice Cream brought me back to reality.  So, then we ogled all of the new flavors and decided on these two gems.


and






You know whats cool?

Hanging out with your husband in sweats and leggings. 
Eating copious amounts of New York-Style Pumpkin Cheesecake Ice Cream and English Toffee Ice Cream.
Making-out every time the stupid Verizon commercial with weird lightening plays AGAIN, just so you have a reason not to have to watch it for the billionth time.
Watching old episodes of Felix the Cat and trying to learn the theme song.
Watching old episodes of Rugrats.  You know you remember Tommy, Chucky, Phil, Lil, and Angelica.
Eating maraschino cherries from a jar.
Staying up unreasonably late with the sweet sweet feeling of knowing that you can sleep in however late you'd like the next morning.
Yellow argyle socks that go half way up your calf.
Pillow Fights at 3 a.m.
Staying in on Friday nights, dare to be different.

You guys are too cute!

And yes, I'd much rather stay in with my love on a Friday night than going out as well. Although the boyfriend has to work every Friday and Saturday night, so I have to stay in alone most of the time. :(

Kell said...

I am like this too! We usually just go to Walmart or something to get a few things, and spend the night watching movies and eating junk. I think it's much more fun and comfy :)

Ashley said...

Sounds great! You guys will do great when/if you have kids since you already know how to enjoy time in! :)

Love it! Sounds like our Saturday night, except we had good intentions. We invited people over for games but it fell through. Secretly we were happy because it meant we could read from Harry Potter 7! I read about five chapters aloud. Such nerds we are :)

I have had this very same moment... many MANY times. they are the best. & when I have these moments I get a huge grin on my face, then my husband asks: 'what did you do?' or 'is there something on my face?'.. and I reply 'nope, you are just perfect.' so glad others have these beautiful moments!

Shalyn said...

I am so with you on this one! I think that makes you guys pretty special- the simple fact that you dont need outside influences to make a night of fun! Love the pictures! And have you ever tried toesocks? They take warm feet to a whole new level!

leggings + oversized shirt + tall socks = my weekend outfit.

i have not wanted to do anything the past few weekends and it is oh-so glorious!

Ashley said...

There's nothing better to me, than staying in. Comfy, cozy, and laid back. Heck, if hubby didn't make me sometimes I'd probably never leave the house! :)

Whenever I think about my homebody ways, I always sing this John Mayer verse in my head: "I was born a house cat, by the slight of my mother's hand."

Enjoy your home-y time (& the Rugrats...boy, they're great!)

Jenna said...

oh my goodness, your date night sounds perfect! absolutely perfect. i am so happy for you that you are so happily married. it's such a blessing for both of you.
what tv channel plays rugrats!? that was totally my show when i was little.

in reply to your comment, i left just in time for the snow to hit atl! i have important school stuff later this week and couldn't risk getting stuck at home. :( i wish so badly that i could be at home with my boy watching the snow fall to the ground...
enjoy your relaxing monday!
