Talk to Us Tuesday-Project 52 Update: Ice Skating

Reese:Maybe we’re just going about this the wrong way. We have to think outside the box. (to Dewey) If you were a diving board, what would you want someone to do with you?
Dewey: Take me ice-skating.
Reese: Don’t be an idiot. That place is freezing, and it’s always so crowded.
Dewey: Yeah, but they have good hot dogs.
Reese: Those hot dogs suck compared to the ones at the train station.
Dewey: Why would a diving board want to go to a train station?
Reese: How should I know? Maybe he wants to visit a relative!
Malcolm: Guys? Get back in the box. –Malcolm in the Middle

I’m linking up with the my girls IA and Seriously Shawn and also giving a little update on my Project 52 list.

After 3 years of begging, Match and I finally went ice skating.

I have to say it was worth the wait! Since Match’s schedule has changed to weekend nights, that means he has weekdays free, which translates to NO CROWDS when we go places. That was sort of an understatement when we went to the ice rink.

When we got there, we found out that we were the only people in the entire skate rink. I’ve only gone ice skating in super crowded malls and once in a very crowded outdoor skate rink in San Francisco.

This beat the pants of those other times. I’m ruined for regular skating. This was seriously the coolest thing ever. We had such a blast. We also discovered that we’re better on skates than we thought we’d be. Here’s a fun short little video I put together of our day at the rink.

We had such a blast and it was a very fun item to check off the Project 52 List. I can’t wait to go again!

    That is something I want to do. I have never been ice skating.

    No way!!! I can’t believe you had the whole rink to yourselves! That’s awesome!! I also can’t believe how good ya’ll are at ice skating! You picked it up so fast. The video was adorable, too! Love the song! :o)


    The only time I’ve ever been ice skating was on a frozen lake when I was maybe 13. Wasn’t that impressed with the whole activity. I like roller skates and roller blades better.

    Look at you getting all fancy by spinning and going backwards. I can’t even go forwards.

    Maybe next time you should try my suggestion. You know which one! 😉

    Thanks for linking up my pretty! =)

    P.S. Love the pics! Very cute!


    Ah, I used to love skating when I was a kid. My dad used to make us our own rink in the back yard. We had lots of fun out on it! But I haven’t been skating in years, sadly…I don’t even think my last pair of skates would fit me anymore! Glad you two had such a good time 🙂


    That sounds like an awesome date! Of course, Id have spent the majority of my time falling on my ass…but if no one was there I could tie a pillow around my butt and call it good.


    I’ve been wanting to go ice skating for a while… and heck my hubs can roller skate, why can’t he ice skate! 🙂

    Seriously Shawn

    My youngest was a competitive skater for almost 2 years until she blew the tendon on both ankles. Since we didn’t think she was the next Michelle Quan and surgery on our 8 year old was out the question she hung up her skates and moved on to softball cleats. I was very good at watching her skate but have never even had a pair on my feet, it scares the shiz outta me!

    I love that you two always look like you;re having a blast together, always be his friend, that the key to our almost 25 years together!


    Jealous! I want to go ice skating…but we have no rink locally. Looks like you had a ball!

    Black Unicorn

    That looks incredible! I would love to go ice-skating at an empty rink, I think it’s so romantic to have the place to yourselves. The only one near me is always packed!

Your comments make my day!
