    • Wedding: September 2009 - Catholic ceremony, reception at local armory

    Pre-wedding planning, we would hug& kiss, cook dinner together, go on a walk or run errands together, then watch our favorite shows.  Now that we’re so busy planning the wedding, we hug & kiss, then figure out what to eat for dinner (I usually have a protein shake, he eats something real) then we work on wedding projects until it’s time for bed.  I can’t wait to go back to the old routine!

    • Wedding: November 1999

    My hubby isn’t home everyday, but on the days he is home as soon as we walk in the door we give each other a kiss.  Then, I usually like to catch up on my e-mail and all that.  Then, we’ll usually start working on dinner, or figure out where we are eating.

    • Wedding: September 2012 - Our backyard!

    We do a mix of these things. Usually we make dinner together and then talk about our days while eating. Then I usually go to my computer for a while to catch up on emails while he watches a baseball game. Sometimes we go for a walk a little after dinner with our dog, while other times we’ll light candles and catch up on one of our favorite tv shows (like True Blood!) in bed. We are mega nerds and spend most of our nights together at home like hermits. We usually save the smoochin’ for later hehe.

    We have a smooch and say hello πŸ™‚ We’ll normally walk the dogs which is our catch up time. A lot of nights we have something on, like dinner at the parentals, or he has a footy game or I have a dancing lesson. Otherwise I cook while he plays on the computer, and we meet up in front of the TV to eat and watch something πŸ™‚ He generally likes his alone time when he first gets home, so I’ve learnt to not bombard him as soon as I walk in the door, but to be patient and he’ll come out of his room later on πŸ™‚ We eat late so it’s normally shower and then bed time after that…I do like nights at home!

    He usually has dinner ready when I get home so we eat together. Then we sit and watch tv (and I’m on my computer). Then we go to the gym together. But I do try to get him to take walks with me. We both enjoy the time just to talk with no distractions, but it’s hard to get him out the door!

    We only have one car, so one of us picks the other person up from work, depending on the day.  We usually catch up on our days briefly on the drive home.  When we get home, we usually chat for a couple of minutes, while we get ready to go to the gym.  Not the most romantic tradition, but it works for us.

    we don’t live together, but we do see each other every day. I always get a great big hug and kiss and then we sit down and talk about the day and discuss our plans for the evening.

    We catch up on our days as soon as we see each other and then sometimes we’ll both go and workout.  He will go to the gym while I go running or do my workout videos at home.  Then we make dinner together and eat it while watching TMZ.  haha  Then we just hang out together and watch our shows or go on our computers or work on one of our DIYs for the wedding.  We are big fans of quality time at home πŸ™‚

    • Wedding: April 2010

    We always have dinner together. There’s no way to avoid conversation when your right next to someone for at least 20 minutes lol!

    After dinner we do yardwork or housework, and then watch TV together or go for a walk.

    We have a big hug session and chat while we make dinner.  Usually this includes a qucik walk around the block with the dog too, so it’s a little bit of most of those options. 

    We always reconnect, physically and emotionally, that’s what’s key.

    • Wedding: September 2010

    We catch up on each other’s day and take our dogs for a walk.  We also eat dinner and watch tv together.

    Lately, we’ve been working on remodeling one of the bathrooms in the house and redoing a couple of the other rooms… so we’ve been busy busy busy.  I’ll be glad when we can just hang out in the evenings and relax.
