Date Night

Yesterday, David and I had a date night, which we haven't done in ages. I actually can't remember the last time we did. We both got dressed up. I put on the dark jeans, heels and a cute top and David a nice sweater. We headed over to Ooka, our favorite sushi place. David's brother Noah, gave us a gift certificate for there and movie tickets for Christmas. Thank You! Lately, we have been going to Oishi instead, as they have been having a holiday special on all their rolls. Now they has awesome prices, its a little more relaxed, cute decor, and they have very tasty rolls. I was reminded last night though, that the quality of rolls at Ooka is a lot better. We are still going to go Oishi as it is a lot cheaper, but I think for more special occasions, we will go to Ooka instead. Anyways, we got several rolls and filled our bellies to the max. We left very happy.

After a great dinner, we had planned to go see the movie Juno, but we had some time to spare. We walked through the rain over to Borders to kill some time. I hit up the new section and saw "The Tea Rose", by Jennifer Donnelly. Somewhere, I had read that this was a book, so I picked it up and was immediately drawn in after reading the back. We browsed a little bit more and then headed over to the movie. I have heard so many people talking about how they really liked Juno, so I was excited to go. I was glad to see that Juno decides to put her baby up for adoption instead of having an abortion. Also, I loved the witty banter in the film. It really reminded me of the TV show Gilmore Girls. Occasionally it was a little to much and sometimes I thought to myself, "A 16 year old wouldn't say that", but I thoroughly enjoyed it. The sound track was also very good so I might look into downloading it from Itunes.

Overall, it was a great way for David and I to do something just the two of us and enjoy each others company. Afterwards, we said to each each other that we need to do that more often. I think I might propose that we make it goal to have at least one date night each month.

"He is the cheese to my macaroni." Juno

Glad to hear to guys got out on a date! Enjoy the feeling of freedom now...while you can. Troy and I have gone out several times after we had Jackson, and although I have enjoyed it, the feeling that I need to tend to my baby is always in the back of my mind, especially with nursing. I'm sure that sense of freedom will start to return to me once I'm not feeding him as much.

Yay for date nights!! Dennis and I have only had one in the 9 months that Peytonn has been here and it just happened to be my bday. We talked about starting up a once a week date night, so we can have some time away from Peytonn.

I really want to see Juno, too!! I'm so glad you liked it, now maybe I can convince dennis to take me!!

Hi Robyn,

I'm so glad that you picked up my book, The Tea Rose! Thank you, and I hope you're enjoying it! You'll have to let me know what you think. I loved your blog, btw. It inspired me to make a date night with my husband, too.
What a great idea!

With best wishes, Jennifer D.
