date night saturday
I've decided to post each day in November. It will be a fun challenge, and I've been looking for things to perk me up and brighten my mood. Normally blogging does perk me up, so I'm trying it.
Ken and I went out to dinner tonight. Sometimes our "dates" are a simple trip to Costco and a burrito at Chipotle, but lately I've been wanting more "datey" venues. We headed to Eric Ericsson's on the pier. Literally, it was 4:44 when we set out for dinner. I totally love that. It's funny to be out so early, so good for a laugh, but also so nice to go at that time when it is quiet and uncrowded and the light is so beautiful. I ordered a "skinny marga-tini" and it was delish. The waitress said it is made with fresh juice instead of sweet/sour mix so kind of tart (but I didn't really find it tart, just pleasantly natural tasting). We stepped out on the pier after dinner and watched the sun slip down. I'm feeling lucky to be living here where we can see the ocean quite regularly.
My parents watched the boys and they ate homemade mac and cheese and watched Wild Kratts on the DVR--so fun was had by all.
