I just wanted to say that my husband and I haven't had anytime to ourselves in a very long time (10 months). We (I) had a really hard pregnancy, we have had some struggles in our marriage and with the new baby and an active 7 year old. We just never seem to slow down or stop.
I got a call on Monday night while Mark was driving from work. To my pleasant surprise, I got asked out on a "date". A real date!!! He said that he liked my list I posted a few days ago "How to have Fun with Him for Free." And that he wanted to give #5 a shot, so to find a sitter and get out my 'Rolling Stones' shirt.
So last night he picked me up after work and took me down to Las Olas in Fort Lauderdale. We had dinner at 'Big City Tavern'. I had Veil with french fries (my weakness) and he went for the Pork Chops. It was delicious.
After that we went over to Riverfront to 'Tarpon Bend" for a couple of drinks and appetizer, since Mark didn't get one at the last place. After that we headed over to 'Coyote Ugly' and played a game of pool. The place was so empty, that we pretty much had it to ourselves.
It being a school night and work night, we didn't stay out long. We went home and snuck into the rooms of the kids to kiss and sniff their heads, one of favorite things to do before bed. Then off to bed we went ourselves.
It was a perfect "first date" that I have had in a very long time. Thank you very much honey for my date!
I do have to say I am a bit upset that I didn't get a picture of us, considering I took my camera just for that reason. But you can't blame me for I was actually there "with" my husband and lost in the moment of getting to know one another again. We smiled, held hands, kissed, talked and laughed. Just what a girl like me needs with the one person that matters the most to her.
Since I know it is "a secret rule" to not post on blogs with out photos.... I found these via the internet for you!!!! And yes, I know that was not really a "free" night. However, it was a simple date just for us to get away by ourselves as a married couple. We didn't have to get all dressed up or make reservations. We were on our own schedule, just the two of us. And the bright side is that we did have a "FREE" sitter. Thanks Val!!!
