I had a date weekend with the boo! We’re still long distance and instead of driving the 4 hours, we sometimes meet in the middle. We’ve met in Fort Wayne, IN twice, but this time it was a city equally as ‘unique’, Dayton, OH. It was a 2 hour drive for me. I recommend it to anyone in a semi-long distance relationship and we highly recommend Priceline for hotels under $50 a night. We’ve had the best luck with 3 1/2 star rooms. The only difference between 3 and 3 1/2 is a flat-screen tv. I don’t like to spend much time in a hotel room when I visit a new city so I really don’t need anything spectacular.
The first night we got in and visited downtown Dayton for dinner at The Spaghetti Warehouse. We won’t be back there to eat. The best things about the place were the decorations and the train that had dining tables. The complimentary bread was bland, and the spaghetti AND meatballs weren’t seasoned at all. I had the lasagna and it was just a step above the spaghetti (bland.3). It really seemed like it was a local favorite though because there were a couple of large birthday parties while we were there. We also ate at The Waffle House (personal fav) and Chick-CanDoNoWrong-Fil-A.
We went to the movie theater Friday and Saturday to see Hereafter and Paranormal Activity 2. Hereafter was aight. I wasn’t a big fan of the ending, and the previews gave away a little too much information. It basically tells the entire plot and nothing in the movie really surprised me, so don’t watch the trailer… unless you don’t want to watch the movie. I really liked Paranormal Activity 2. I’m a huge fan of sequels especially when they connect in a great way to the original. The movie definitely connected to the original in a way that no one expected! Corbin hasn’t seen the original so I did have to fill him in on a couple details.
The other highlight of the weekend was the Majestic Nursery & Garden Corn Maze. It took us about 30 minutes to get there, but it was well worth it. It really gave us time to bond and I think it really help us understand our roles in our relationship. I let him take hold of the map and guide us through. I would give my opinion, but it was definitely a task for me to just follow him. 😉 The maze was a lot more difficult than we thought because we had the added task of finding 5 different scarecrows along the way. After about an hour, and much exercise, we found all 5 scarecrows, but only 4 of them had cards to prove it. :/ Corbin was the navigator keeping us on path, and I scoped out the scenery finding the scarecrows along the way. We made it to the end to get our surprise gift (see below) lol. I highly recommend taking a random vacation just to season your relationship or spice up your life! #spicegirls
