Loved This Date.

Today's topic for the Fab V-Day Challenge hosted by Casey, Amber, and Neely is "Loved This Date-- Best Date Ever."  

Due to the long distance, Donny and I have never really ever had a "date" where he comes and picks me up and we go out somewhere.  We pick each other up at the airport and then drop off a few days later instead!  :)  But, one of my favorite days we've had together was during his first trip here in September of last year.  

First stop that morning was Blowing Rock, NC (which is one of my fave places in NC).  The Blowing Rock park itself is cute (a little small) but has amazing views and is great for picture-taking.  Then, we went into the town, walked around in all the cute little shops, and had lunch.  After BR, we went to Grandfather Mountain where I conquered my fear of the Mile High Bridge (The Bachelor producers would be proud).

I almost had a panic attack driving down the mountain, but I survived.  After we got back to where I live, we had dinner with some of my friends, who were excited to meet Donny.

We spent the whole day laughing and talking and just being relaxed and fun.  Loved it.  :)


  1. Oh my gosh Katie. I give you much kudos for that bridge. There is no way you can get me on that! I think the picking up at the airport is very romantic :-)

  2. That bridge looks terrifying! And I think you can call anything you want a date! Sometimes I tell my husband we are on a couch date while we are watching TV at home :)

    Thanks for linking up with us for the Valentine's Challenge!

  3. Aww, what a fun date! I'm impressed that you went on the bridge! I would be TERRIFIED!

  4. I love the Bachelor reference :)

  5. What a fun date!! And I, too, loved the Bachelor reference!!

  6. Such a cute story! There is a bridge like that in Colorado that I went to a couple years ago. I am not too bad about heights so I loved it, it was beautiful!


  7. I love blowing rock. THis post made me think of another great date I've had with my fiance up there. Thanks for sharing!

  9. I think laughing is the most important part of any date. If you can't laugh with your man, you can't be with them forever :)

  10. I agree--probably my favorite of our days together as well!
