if you know anything about megan, then you know she is a great gift giver. she always puts a lot of thought into the gifts she gives and they are always perfect! and if you follow me on instagram (and if you don't, you should!), then you might already know that megan and chris gave jim a scavenger hunt for his birthday, which we cashed in on last weekend. (really, the gift was for both jim and me, since i got to tag along.) and along with the scavenger hunt, they included babysitting so that we would have a fun date night out all by ourselves! it was such a thoughtful gift and it turned out to be such a fun night! the first clue led us to a neighborhood bar where we enjoyed a couple of beers, an appetizer, and one another's company. that clue also told us not to fill up since there would be more food later! the next clue took us to megan and chris's house where megan had cooked and laid out a delicious living room picnic! there were candles everywhere, wine was being chilled, and cheesy 80s love songs were playing on pandora. it was awesome. we ate and drank and talked and laughed. it was so nice to have a long, leisurely, uninterrupted dinner with my husband. no kids, no phones (okay, i took mine out once to take a photo for instagram!), no worries. and finally, the last clue gave us a choice: a night out on the town or a night in, hanging out with megan and chris at our house. since they are two of our favorite people, we, of course, chose the latter option. when we got to our house, the kids were in bed, the beer was in the fridge, and there was a fun new board game to be played (also part of the gift)! it ended up being an awesome night. more fun then i have had in a long time! thanks, megan and chris!
both megan and chris's birthdays are coming up very soon! jim and i had better start brainstorming the perfect gift!
