Going Out on a "Date"
It's been pretty busy around our house lately, so it's been a while since the hubby and I have been out on a "date." We had to wait until Lauren (our babysitter) had an opening in her schedule, so she could watch Dominic for a few hours. As our "date" grew closer, I decided to put on a nice sweater and apply a little makeup. This past Saturday, we headed out to a Chinese restaurant that we hadn't been to in a few years. Guess we should have called the place beforehand, because it was all boarded up and out of business! Instead of heading back home, we tried a second Chinese restaurant that luckily was open! The restaurant was packed - I guess a lot of other people decided to go out on a Saturday night. We didn't have a reservation, so we had to wait a little bit. It was interesting to look around at the other people there. I saw a lady by herself, other couples out on dates (like us), and families with kids. Seated right next to us were two guys dressed in tuxedos. That is certainly not something you see everyday! Between my husband's busy and demanding job and all that the kids have going on, we don't go out (just the two of us) very often. I love that when my husband and I were eating, we didn't make the topic of conversation about the kids. We talked about other things (like how we need to have a "date" more often)!! How often do you and your significant other go out on a "date?" Once a week? once a month? once a year?
