    We try to have dinner together each night and we also try to spend about a half-hour in bed together before sleeping time. we willl talk about our days, what we need to do the next, and pray together.

    Assuming we’re both home in the evening, we’ll always eat together. We also go to bed pretty early and read/watch TV/talk for a while before actually going to sleep.

    And lately since it hasn’t been as hot, we’ve started evening walks with the dog.

    Aww, I love WNTW too, and Fiance says he hates it. BUT, when I do watch it he gets so involved and comments on all of the clothes, makeup, and hair.

    I really like when we cook together, but that only happens maybe twice a week. I also really like the time when we watch tv and cuddle before we fall asleep or when we are both reading in bed before we fall asleep.

    Our bonding time is usually during the week-end, I try to soak him as much as I can since I barely see him during the week because of his crazy work schedule. Usually we chill watching movies, go out for dinner on Saturdays, we boom boom hihi, just lay in bed canoodling (that’s how I called cuddling).

    We stay up far too late at night talking, especially after the lights are turned out. Darling Husband gets really chatty at bedtime. He even mentioned it in his vows: “I love staying up way too late with you every night, just talking. We never get enough sleep, but it’s totally worth it.”

    Darling Husband is not a big exerciser, but he wants to start working out more. He went to spin class with me yesterday and said that it was fun to spend time with me “in my natural habitat” (the gym). So if he can pull the energy together to go at 6 a.m. like I do, we may start working out more together.

    Our bedtime chats are my favourite bonding time with Darling Husband.   We sometimes cook together, always eat together, and usually spend the evening together on the couch with our books or magazines whilst watching the news.  Darling Husband hates commercial television so we rarely watch anything other than the news or educational programs but that’s ok as it gives us lots of interesting things to talk about.

    We head off to bed early to read a bit before going to sleep and that’s when we have our silly bedtime chats.  Sometimes they make sense, other times it is pure nonsense but we always end up in fits of laughter and the amount of love in the room is overwhelming.  Cheesy sounding, yes, but it’s true.  It is by far my favourite time of day.

    We do a lot together during the week which I’m grateful for since we used to go a few days without seeing each other (while living together).  We started running together, I cook (he sometimes helps) and we eat at the table together, we watch television/sports together, pretty much everything and on the weekend we do a variety of activities.  We also talk when we lay down in bed for about fifteen to thirty minutes.

    We don’t live together any more so when we do see each other, we do cooking together, TV AND boom boom…..

    When we used to live together, I guess TV was our “us time” away from the rest of our housemates. But also we played N64 games. And if the weather was nice, took a walk with the camera/went for a bike ride (because it’s a type of exercise I enjoy), took the camera for a bike ride, went out for dinner, met for drinks when he finished work, and so on! We did loads together. 🙂

    During the week, we will eat dinner together on nights that I get off early enough (which…working at a newspaper, it is really random when I get home).  We always watch an episode of a TV show together before bed (we start a season of something, then watch an episode or two every night…we’ve gone hrough Avatar: the Last Airbender, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Bones….now we’re working on Weeds…I guess we have some random tastes in shows!).  Lately, we’ve been taking bike rides in the evenings together too (I LOVE these evenings!!!)

    We watch an episode of TV together over dinner, sometimes exercise, sometimes play video games, and cuddle and chat before we fall asleep.
