Among all the advice, was this golden ticket of wisdom, in so many words: get out of the house! He recommended (and we totally agree here over at LLF), getting out once a week, even if it's just for a walk or a cup of coffee, because home is where stress lives. And it is much easier to get away from home than to get stress away home, right? This translates into weekly date nights for us. Some of our best conversations [ever] have happened on weekly date nights.
We haven't always been awesome at getting date nights together, but lately we've been working hard to make this a priority in our relationship. Plus (duh) it's fun!
A few weeks ago, we used Restaurant.com gift cards we had gotten for Christmas to check out a local wine bar
With live music! Hubband asked him to play "Brown Eyed Girl" *swoon*
They had a nutcracker. Which is odd.
Ooops... Caught breaking the date rule. (No phones!)
Their bruchetta was YUM!
They had a really nice bathroom! So... I uhm, took a picture. But it was really nice!
Look! They even had cab numbers on the mirror! So cool :)
Later, while perusing Target (which I guess is the basis for any good date) we found this! Optimus Prime hanging out with a bad crowd!
So, we of course, helped him to make some better life choices.
It was a good date! I like the guy, I think I'll probably go out with him again ;)
What do you do on dates? Are they important to you too?
