Movie Date Night

It's been quite awhile since Superman and I had a date night. To be honest, I can't even remember the last date night we had. Sad. Anyway, last night we went to dinner and a movie. What a splurge!

Dinner was great--I had smoked cedar plank salmon...mmm...

By the time we drove the 15 minutes to the restaurant, though, we were pretty much out of things to say. I guess being married almost 12 years and having 5 kids can just zap that ol' vitality out of you. I mean, I love Superman. A lot. And it's good that I do, since we literally just sat sipping our waters and munching on bread for the 40 minutes we waited for our food. We did talk a little politics and economy and we dabbled in some work gripes. But wanna know the best part of being at dinner alone with my hubby? I ate as slowly as I wanted. There was no rushing through a bite so I could tend to arguing children. There was no waters being spilled on me or food being thrown. It was wonderful. As a matter of fact, the people next to us had a baby with them, and I think I actually felt my heart skip a beat when I realized I was alone with my husband at a sit-down restaurant!

Anyhoo, dinner was great. Dessert was even better. You may remember that I've cut refined sugar out of my diet. But I wasn't about to let a rare date night with Superman pass me by without indulging a bit! We shared a piece of divine banana creme pie. Mmmm...

After dinner, we went and saw the movie "To Save A Life." It's a MUST SEE! If you have teenagers, or know teenagers, or even if you were once a teenager, you should see it. It's excellent. I may be a bit biased since we know the people who wrote it, but it really is an excellent flick. Touching, funny and makes you think.

Hope you're all having a great weekend!

Y'll look like a couple of teenagers in that booth. ;)

I haven't heard of the movie but I'll put it on my to-do list.

You know it's been a long time since you've been on a real date when you commemorate the event with photos! (lol)

Our oldest is just old enough to baby-sit, and I am telling you, that was a life-changing milestone for us! It is GREAT.
