Surprise date night!
DH just loves movies. I enjoy them too, though it's more difficult for me to sit still in a chair that's not mine for more than an hour! I decided to surprise him with a date night tonight. Last night I told him that he had a visitor coming tonight at 6, but I wouldn't tell him who it was. I don't think I'm too convincing, because he laughed and pretended to go along with it. I told the children that I wanted to surprise their Daddy, so they were cleaning and vacuuming for our guest when he arrived home. Hilarious. I told him to be ready at 6, and then I changed clothes, spritzed some perfume, and snuck out the front door. I rang the doorbell, and I could hear him pretending to wonder who was there. Like I said, I must not be as convincing as I think I am! Anyway, he said he was glad it was me and that he was excited to have a date night. We visited Pane Rustica , where we shared a delicious Danish blue cheese salad with apples, spiced pecans, and cranberries, calamari, and a GREAT pizza with grilled chicken, feta, artichokes and mushrooms. Dinner was fabulous! Then we ran to the movies! We were home early, and I think D enjoyed his surprise!! Maybe the rest of you can do a better job at keeping a secret and surprising your spouses with a fun night out. With the collapse of Jon & Kate and all of the other bad things going on in the world, it's important to "keep that FIRE in the FIREPLACE!" Now back to my date!
