Date Night



Nothing like date night to remember why I love this guy so much.
It's nice to step away from the daily grind, for a bit.
A simple evening out, but it felt so decadent.
No negotiating, eat one more bite then you can have your soda.
No threatening, if you don't get out from under the table, you will go to bed when we get home.
No tag-team, you go wash his hands and I'll take them to the car.
Instead,
table for two!
spicy cajun food!
band so loud you have to talk into each others ear!
order from the dessert menu!
And somewhere along the way I remember...
BEST thing I ever did was marry David Painter.

So true, sista, so true.

It's pretty amazing to get the leave the house alone, together. We all too often settle for take out after the kids go to bed. Better than nothing, I guess.

And soooo scary about Roman! And how could you think you weren't super fetching in your, I amuse, lovely apron? Glad the baby's okay. Maybe we can be in the same remedial class together. We could pass notes and miss the important parts.

I always love your posts, and once again- this is a good one! I'm taking a wild guess that you guys went to the JAZZ, am I right?!? Sooooo glad you got a night away. I've realized how important it is to keep date nights up after having children. You and Dave are still so darling! I remember when the two of you first met!! :)
