Hubby and I celebrated our 18th anniversary a couple of weeks ago, however, it was smack DAB at the end of the school year with a flurry of kiddo stuff, so we finally went to a nice dinner to celebrate last night. Hey, better late than never, right?
We went to the local state college because we had heard great things about their Cafe 101: the culinary school that offers lunch (reservations only @ $10) and dinner on Wednesdays (reservations only @ $15). The meal was fabulous. I’m still full. Four courses. A limited menu, however, Hubby and I ordered opposite choices and pretty much sampled the menu. I’ve never had such amazing conch fritters. There goes my mouth, watering again!
It was nice to get out. We don’t realize how busy we are during the week, working and tending to children and family life. Weekends are filled with chores and family outings (next weekend we have friends visiting–WOOT WOOT!!!) , so getting away just the two of us is rare. Uninterrupted conversation, catching up on the week, etc, etc. The funny thing is (or pathetic, depending on how you look at it), during the day, I jotted down notes on my phone of things I wanted to make sure we discussed during our date. OY. These aging, multitasking, distracted brain cells. Know what? It worked!
To top the evening off, we did a little price shopping on eyeglasses for our youngest and a new pair for Hubby. Holy COW they are expensive, so we wanted to see if we could get a better deal than our ophthalmologist’s office–yes, about 1/2 off!!!!!
Came home to kiddos getting along, showered, full of pizza, settling in to watch America’s Funniest Videos and ready for bed. It was a good night. And my date was great!! He smelled real good, too! Falling asleep, we both laughed recalling one of our first dates when he said something to me as U2 was playing SO SOFTLY on the radio that somehow I thought I heard “I love you”. My response was , ” Love me? You hardly even know me?!” After laughing, he explained he loved U2—DUH! That wasn’t awkward at all. So we still laugh and we both remember EXACTLY where we were when I said it. Good times. Good times! At least now I can say, “I love you, too” and “I love U2”, because they are both still true!
Blessings and Happy GO SKATE DAY!!!
Sounds like the perfect evening for the perfect couple…love you both bunches! xoxo
