Guessing from the picture that you guys are having your date at PF Changs? Great choice by the way :) Good for you guys for getting out and having some fun together! Sounds like you've done a lot of amazing things in your lives.

So how is it my brother broke a couple of ribs and I didn't know about it? And tell me about his book!!! How come I don't know about that? I have a book but it's all in my head, someday when my kids are a little older I'll write it!

Fun to read your answers! Good idea to do it for a date. Thanks for sharing! I look forward to Mark and Amanda's answers too.

That was a really fun tag. Thank again for all your help last night. I left feeling so relieved. I have people who actually care about helping me, and are trying hard to do so.
It is so nice to have your input. You really helped with the child class. I would have been lost there. I feel so much more at ease with this calling.
Thank you.

Great idea to do this for a date! I think these things are so fun to do as husband and wife. I'll email a 20-question one to you that Tapa and I did the other day. I was glad he took the time to do it--I was actually impressed at how well he does know me.
