So Friday night we had a date night. Like a good, old fashioned, child-free date night thanks to a husband who planned it and a sister who offered to babysit.
It was wonderful.
I was a little afraid that I would not be able to handle the evening. The night before I had an extra glass of wine when I went out with some friends from work. (okay, so maybe a few too many ...) and I was not looking all that pretty Friday morning. I would, in fact, say I was looking a little green. But, I managed to make it through the day with the promise of a yummy dinner and even yummier movie theatre popcorn in the near future.
Mike picked me up from the train, and we went to Milestones. We love this restaurant because a) the food is yummy and b) Mike designs them and we can marvel at what an amazing architectural technologist he truly is.
We decided to not only order meals, but to also order our absolute favouritest food ever -- spinach and artichoke dip -- to start. Yummy! And quiet. We just sat and ate and enjoyed the fact that there were no fingers in our food and no screaming toddler. I couldn't get through my pasta, but I wasn't really trying. I figured there was no point in stuffing myself when I was going to get some yummy popcorn.
Then we went to see Blades of Glory.
As soon as we heard about this movie we knew it was made for us. I love figure skating. Mike likes comedies. We both LOVE Will Ferrell.
And, it did not disappoint. In fact, the whole evening did not disappoint. It was just fun fun fun. And, every so often you need that. You know, puts everything in perspective.
