Back into the swing of things.....sorta. After a month with twins in our home, it took us a few weeks to get Date Night going again. Trust me when I say the recuperation time was necessary! At long last. If we don't pick up the pace we're never going to finish the alphabet and after all, I've got letters like "Q" and "Z" to
It's always nice when it's hubby's turn to plan and all I have to do is show up. One thing I can count on is that when it's his turn we'll for sure be going out for dinner. Since I cook almost every night, this works for me! He's pretty sweet about choosing a restaurant he thinks I'll like or one that we've never been to before. This night, in honor of the letter "L" he chose Lunardi's, an Italian restaurant near us. My dinner was DEE-licious--I had pasta marsala---our waitress recommended it and it was pretty yummy! Hubby stuck with the "L" theme and ordered lasagna.....gotta love a rule follower!
That has to be an optical illusion. >>>>
No way is my plate that much bigger than his!
Afterwards, we headed to Lindsay Park and had fun just hanging out and watching the world go by. Hubby brought along some conversation starters.....you would think after nearly thirty-one years of marriage we wouldn't need them.....but sometimes it surprises me when we just take the time to talk....or should I say Listen?
Proof that a great date night doesn't have to cost much or take an enormous amount of planning. On the way home, we impulsively decided to stop for lemon meringue pie which was a double bonus for me. I can't eat lemon meringue pie without remembering my mom (it's a dessert we both loved) and I'm pretty sure calories don't count on when the treat lines up with the letter for the night!
