Date night

So believe it or not the fact that my wonderful, amazing Grandma offered to pay for a date night every single week as our Valentine's Day present stressed me the heck out last week when it came to thinking about our second date in two weeks!! What were we going to do? What were we going to talk about? We'd already knocked it out of the park with our Valentine's Day date at our Valentine's day restaurant with our brewery shots, our grilled salmon, and chipotle mashed potatoes. We'd toasted to the night, flirted endlessly, and got out all the dating mojo we needed to last us the next six months... until the next week.

We had the babysitter planned for Friday night. We were going out, no doubt about that. That's when I thought - double date! Yay! We never get the chance to do that. To be nice, I gave Brando first choice with his friends. Fortunately they were such sweet friends they invited us out to a wine tasting and then over to their house for dinner so bonus evening for not having to spend any extra money! I tried my first farm-fed tilapia with portabellos and garlic, served with spinach, strawberry, and almond salad and french bread with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and fresh ground pepper. At the wine tasting we decided it would be kick up our heels in pictures night, and later on we have the guys making fun of us girls and our posing. I have the pictures somewhere. We never get a chance to have that kind of outing together as a couple. We had such a blast, we are so going to do that every other week for our date night!


This picture would've been so much cuter if it was only ME kicking up my heels. Oh well.

Our yummy dinner
