date night

Can I just get a shout out for date nights?  They are so great and important in a marriage.  Before having Lincoln I took for granted how easy it was to go out on a date.  I'm sure it's still easier now while we just have one but once we have more we're gonna have to be more intentional about having regular date don't have to twist my arm for that one! :)  So anyway, I was finally feeling better and we were finally able to have a date night to celebrate my birthday, which was only 3 weeks ago....haha.  I was so thankful to be feeling better!  We got a babysitter (she did an amazing job by the way) and started with supper at Longhorn Steakhouse.  I love me a good, juicy steak and their steaks are fab.  Oh and the berry sangria I had was pretty fab as well!  The waitress complimented me on my belt I had on, which is made by Meg over at (go check it out, she makes awesome flowers, belts etc to raise money to bring home their little girl from Honduras).  I realized I actually had one of Meg's cards with me so I gave it to her and she said she was tickled about this belt and so excited to get one of her own!  I love being a walking advertisement for Meg!  :)
After steaks, we rolled our full selves,, ok not really but it sure felt like it, we were so stuffed, right on over to The Melting Pot for dessert.  Neither of us had eaten there before and it was quite the treat!  We got their chocolate fondue with strawberries, bananas, chessecake, rice krispies etc to dip.  Even though we were so stuffed, you can ALWAYS make room for dessert, especially chocolate fondue!

I couldn't have asked for a better way to spend a Saturday evening.

Yay for self timers! :)

chowin' down on our chili, bacon and cheese fries!

Yes I did feel my arteries starting to clog but it was SO good.

Our yummy tray of goodies to dip at The Melting Pot

Chocolate dipped Strawberries are incredible.  That's all I have to say about that.

It was so dark in there, don't think Tyler was ready for this one :)
Our night was filled with lots of quality time and good conversation.  It was good for my heart. :)
