I’m a very firm believer and practicer of date night. I’m always amazed at how many of my friends don’t go on regular dates with their spouses. What is the matter with you people? By Friday night I’m pawing the ground like a pent-up bull ready to escape. Mister and I are of like mind in this respect. The two of us are all about having fun. Plus we need to reconnect and get back on the same page or our marriage starts to pay the price. Things can disintegrate quickly.
Food is involved in date night, of course. Lately I’ve been on a hummus bender and only want to eat at places that serve it. Which usually means Tino’s Greek Cafe. Mister is cool with that because their Greek chicken salad is amazing. In a couple of weeks I’ll have moved on to a new food craving.
Sometimes we go to a movie. Sometimes we go someplace for live music. Sometimes we just bum around the book shop.
On the menu for tonight? Mister was very disappointed to find out that I scheduled a late-over with some kids in our ward. But don’t worry! We have tomorrow night honey!
What about you? Are you into date night (and by date night I don’t mean putting the kids to bed and watching a movie. That’s not a date. A date entails a change of venue. Even if it just means going for a drive in the car or window shopping at Ikea.)
