Remember how I mentioned I wanted to go ice skating this holiday season? Well, over the weekend, we made it happen! Last night, Chris and I met up with our friends Brigette and Brad for a double date at the Downtown Sacramento Ice Rink. After paying for our admission and lacing up our rental skates, we headed out to the rink for an hour on the ice. It was Chris’ first time ice skating, and I was quite rusty, so we mostly stuck by the railing and did our best to keep each other from falling. Even though we’re not great ice skaters, we still had fun and really enjoyed the Christmas-time-in-Sacramento ambiance. After our hour-long session ended, we headed back to Brigette and Brad’s apartment for drinks, snacks, and a Christmas Vacation.
The best part about the night was the opportunity to share it with our friends! Ever since I moved back from Korea, I’ve been on the lookout for couples whom Chris and I can double date with. However, it’s not always easy. I’m sure you’ve heard the expression “a good friend is hard to find.” Well, a good couple to double date with is even harder to find! The reason for this is because instead of just making sure two people get along and have stuff in common, you now have to make sure that all four people get along and have common interests. Chris and I have gone on double dates before where he and the other guy had nothing in common, or the other girl and I had nothing in common. That has never been the case with Brigette and Brad: Brigette and I were roommates in college, and Chris and Brad bonded instantly over their mutual love for the movie Ghostbusters when they first met. Since then, we have gone on numerous fun double dates together and they are definitely one of our favorite couples to hang out with!
