Date Night

This past Saturday, Greg and I had our first date since becoming parents of two children. Our good friends, Ruben and Christy, were willing to brave both of them (along with their own 10-month-old) and Greg and I were able to go out to dinner for a belated Valentine's Day. While I was showering, Greg told me he was going out to buy transmission fluid and was gone before I could ask, "why now?" I thought it was odd that he HAD to run out Saturday afternoon for trans fluid being that his new transmission wasn't being delivered until Tuesday, but I didn't question it...until he was gone over 45 minutes. Advance Auto is literally right at the corner. It then occurred to me what was going on. ;)

He came home with a card and these...

I don't have much that fits me in my current state and I wanted to dress up and look nice for Greg. Earlier in the week, I scored this dress for $15 at Kohl's!

We went to a seafood restaurant recommended by a friend called "One Fish, Two Fish." (Thanks Debra!) It's right on the water which is really pretty. Unfortunately it was a cold evening though, so we didn't get to enjoy the water outdoors. Even still, we had a wonderful dinner and a wonderful date. It was great to get out, just the two of us. I love Greg so much and still love the opportunity to get alone time with him (especially with how little that happens!)

  1. Love it!!! The dress, the flowers, the happy couple! :) I love that you two are so happy. :)


    And kudos for going on a date so soon after becoming the parents of two. Some (a lot of) couples take much longer than that... :)
