Selection Sunday – Date Night Edition

Happy September! I hope that everyone is enjoying the long weekend! We kicked off the College Football Season yesterday with plenty of food and drinks to go around.

Tomorrow is Dan’s birthday and I will be setting aside my Cougar Crown for the next 6 months. We will be celebrating by road tripping it to Dallas next weekend for the Giants-Cowboys game. Still, I wanted to do something fun for his ‘actual’ birthday weekend, too. So, I came up with date ideas for him to choose from when he gets home from work tonight.

How are you spending Labor Day Weekend?! Tell me I am not the only one who enjoyed a margarita and nachos yesterday! 🙂

Date Night!

Dan and I did something crazy this week. We went out to dinner on a work night. Okay, so I know that isn’t really all that crazy, but considering the fact that I am usually in my robe by 7:00 PM, or whenever we walk through the front door, it was definitely outside of our normal routine. I have to admit, it was fun to put on make-up, take the time to style my hair, and remind Dan what I look like in something other than yoga pants and a t-shirt.
ImageWe decided to go to California Pizza Kitchen for dinner. It’s only a couple blocks from our place, and I love the menu. For our appetizer, we shared the tortilla spring rolls, which we had never had before. Mighty tasty! I had pizza as my main course, but was obviously excited enough when dinner arrived that I forgot to take a picture.


It was a beautiful night, so we skipped dessert at the restaurant and opted instead to walk to an ice cream shop down the street.


We split, aka, I had ¾, of cake batter ice cream with gummy bears and snickers. And, it was so good that I have been craving seconds ever since.
