price check on aisle 4


Remember my nerdy snow angel pictures and I challenged you guys to take some self-timer photos. Well, it only gets worse folks...
Saturday night was date night.
Which means that the couple short hours where we are not taking care of kids is an excuse to act like kids.
Hence, taking photos with Strawberry Nesquick & a pineapple.
We choose the less trafficked aisle... the juice aisle. Only a few people came through to pick up their prune or apple juice. I don't think anyone noticed my camera mixed in with the Hot Cocoa but I did get a couple strange looks. Which actually was nothing compared to the strange looks we got when Collin was blaring Lady Gaga and driving through the parking lot 3 times with the windows down hollering, "where da club at?" to a group of teenage kids. Yeah, I'm pretty sure that was worse. When it came down to it, it was much easier to ask him to pose at the grocery store after the crazy parking lot episode. Yes, I was ducking and hiding in the passenger seat at the time.

We took three quick shots at different levels of the shelves to get the whole dorky scene. Then layered them to create one dorky photo. Definitely fun because I will never forget this night.

Tweet #936: Then I hitched a ride to the car... that's what happens when you go grocery shopping in heels.

LOL, love it! You two win for cutest couple ever. I was taking a drink of my soda and choked on it when I read what he was doing in the parking lot. Awesome idea!!! haha

Queen of Paper said...

you guys sound like Jason and I. Our dates are always dorkish, but that's how I like it. It's how I fell in love with him. lol
PS love the red shoes ;)

♥Amber Filkins♥ said...

Oh my gosh, so funny!! That sounds similar to us. The last 2 Saturday nights we've gone out with our besties, and find ourselves at restaurants laughing, talking WAY too loud, giggling, getting lots of stares. And then the same at Target. lol.

Glad you caught it on camera. And so cute!

Dawn said...

Scrappy Girl said...

Oh how I wish I could get Dr. Hubby to act like a kid...so serious ALL THE TIME! On date night in December I couldn't even get him to take a pic with me and Santa...so I know the pineapple is out...bummer.

lolafalola said...

I love how much fun you two have...ah to be young(er) again!! great shots...thanks for making me laugh this morning!

Jenni said...

you guys are hilarious!!!! hey i think it sounds like a fun date night :) Is that a red box movie in your cart??? love the heels!

A Forest Frolic said...

That is hilarious! At least you only had to deal with Lady Gaga...my husband will yell across the isles at the drug store, 'hun, did you get the diarrhea medicine,' and then he'll duck and leave me stranded with rosy cheeks as the passerby's giggle and stare! That's why I always try to take the kids with me when we go, because he is less likely to pull a stunt like that ;)

Isn't it funny how fun date nights (and time without the kiddos) can be even if you are just grocery shopping!? It always brings me back to our time before 3 kids and boy were those some crazy times! Not that it's not the best time of our lives right now...but you know what I'm saying, tee hee!

Jamie : )

We live in a Zoo! said...

Love the red heels! :D
PS. I wouldn't have looked at you weird.

Hilarous! We usually end up at the grocery store at the end of all our date nights too but we do the boring thing and just shop. I'm gonna have to forward this to the hubby and let him have a chuckle

Mauri said...

You guys are too funny! I'd love to hang out with you guys, but my husband might be a little too uptight for these kind of hijinks. ;) Here's to staying young!

Michelley! said...

iamahoneybee said...

aww that is so cute! I love the self timer shots!

Kami said...

I love the dorky photos and love that you flaunt it on your blog!! You may have me beat in the dorky dept. - although I recently purchased a copy of "Labrynth" on DVD....

Sara said...

I seriously laughed all day about this. I used to do that kind of stuff, and it reminded me so much of it! I can just see the looks on the kids faces. It reminded me to never take life too seriously. A lot of my old ways have calmed down as i've gotten older, but it's nice to see that you guys still have fun like that (not that i'm saying your old), and even better, you do it together! Too cute!

Lara said...

If you can't laugh and have fun together...what's the point, right??!! Strawberry Quick....yummm. You guys are too cute!

PS Did you ever find "da club"? Lol!!

Anonymous said...

What a crack up!! I couldn't stop laughing. You made me feel alot more normal. My teenagers are constantly embarrassed by my behaviour. You are only as old as you feel and in that case I think Im five years old. Anyway thanks for the laugh and the constant inspiration, not only in scrapping but in living life to the fullest. Take care and enjoy the snow as we are melting here in Australia.

Crystal Alves-Tusim said...

sooo loving that you guys did that! Last time I acted crazy at the grocery store I went there in monkey pajama pants, a reversable mickey mouse pajama shirt and a goofy pajama hat (you know, the pointy ones that flop to one side???....hahaha) then I ended up in the freezer stuck behind the door with the frozen pastas and a cucumber in my hand...LOL I still can't believe that happened..and I have the photo to remind me for life. PS. Why I own those pj's is beyond me...hehe =P

Jeanneoli said...

You guys are awesome!! So funny..totally sounds like something we would do!

Jen said...

Crystal Alves-Tusim said...

Hey Liz...just wondering what widget you used for your playlist?

lindsey said...

You 2 are so freakin' cute. I could never, I repeat never get my hubby to do something so fun and silly like that. Too cute.

cindy said...

You two are so stinking adorable! <3

Rebekah Williams said...

Who knew red heels, a pineapple and a camera could come in so handy at the grocery store?!

Amber Zimmerman said...

How fun!! One of my fave dates with my husband was when we went to Salvation Army and picked out each other's outfits. . .the dorkier the better. We went out on the town dressed in the outfits and ended up at a roller skating rink where all the kids thought we were the hired entertainment. ;-) This was a few years before we got married, but still in the date hall of fame! =)

Kim said...

I nearly had soda come out my nose when I read what your husband was doing in the parking lot! That is really funny!

Brynn Marie said...

I totally love it...it's very American Grocery Gothic...

StaZ said...

Love it!!! What a great grocery shopping trip!

Jill said...

Hilarious! I love hearing about your date nights. What a cute couple the two of you are. I can't wait to find a guy like Collin to make me laugh like that. It's like that new Daughtry song: "All that I am after is a life full of laughter, as long as I'm laughing with you". I LOVE that song, and that is what I am looking for...know of anyone on the East Coast? LOL!

Again, thanks for sharing your fun stories and photos!

PaperDiva said...
