Day 2283 – A New Date Location – No Talking Required

Today I took Bret to one of my new favorite libraries. Can I say how much I LOVE living in Howard County and their library system? AH! Beautiful libraries and amazing resources online ( included as a library perk, WHAT?!) Love, love, love.

After lunch, I suggested we go to the library so that I could work and he could do some reading of our study bible. Can I also say how much I love that my husband loves reading God’s word?

So we set up at a table and next thing I know, we’ve been there over two hours, stayed until they closed and barely said anything to each other. It was glorious. 🙂 Both of us get a lot done at the library, apparently. It was fun showing him how cool it was and that he was excited about it too. 🙂 Ladies and gentlemen, we have found our new date location.


Day 2198 – First Trip To Bengie’s Of The Summer – Maryland’s Only Drive-In

If you need something fun to do with your family and friends in Maryland, you gotta check out Bengie’s Drive-In. Not only is it the last drive-in in Maryland, it’s also the biggest movie screen in the country!

If you haven’t been before, please make sure you take some time to read their rules online. They’re cash only and have a number of rules that help to make everyone’s experience more enjoyable. The staff is good at making sure the rules are enforced. Case in point – Bret was in the driver seat and causally put his foot on the break before the movie…within a few minutes, a staff member came over to ask him to stop. It is really distracting to have lights on. I’ll admit, the first time I went, I thought, WOW, there are a lot of rules and signs posted about them! But after going and hearing The Voice, it all made sense. The rules are there to make sure everyone has a good time, so I’m GLAD they have them! We have had a great time every time. So don’t be scared when you see the rules! 🙂

Another reason you should check out Bengie’s is it’s a small business. I think it’s important to support them!

If you needed more reason, check this out….you can see at least 2 movies for $10 a person. That’s a steal. Even if you only stay for one movie, that’s still cheaper than a theater. The snacks are really affordable too. We spent about $20 throughout the night and we got – a medium soda, nachos, a soft pretzel, two extra sides of nacho cheese, two waters, cotton candy and a large coffee. Next time we need to try their burgers…which are around $4!

So, go to Bengie’s tonight or tomorrow night! Check out Ant-Man and Inside Out. Both are great films at a great location.
