We definitely don't do this often enough but for the past two Fridays E and I have had date nights. Last Friday he suggested we go out for a movie. We grabbed dinner at the Jambalaya Shoppe and saw National Treasure. It was quite good actually; much better than I expected.
Tonight we opted for dinner only. We dined on Italian food at Pasta Garden. It was the first time we'd tried them and we came away impressed. In fact, I'm about as full as a tick right now. Our appetizer was something called Crazy Balls - a seafood blend rolled in batter and fried then topped with a lemon butter sauce. Now the name may not be too tempting but they were quite good. I'll spare you the details of the rest of our meal, just know that we really enjoyed our outting.
Date Night is important to us. We both work in pretty high stress jobs and between the jobs, the bills, and life in general we tend to be pretty high strung. It's nice to be able to just take off for the evening and spend time alone, relaxed and away from the rat race. I highly suggest it to every married couple. It helps bring us back to center.
Hello! I'm a forty-something Cajun gal living in the wonderful city of New Orleans. I'm married to a great guy I happened to meet online a few years back. We share our home with three dogs - a Peke-a-poo named Sophie and two Bichons Frise named Sneauball and Nate. I won't be having any children of my own but I have the coolest niece and nephew on the planet.
Read on and I hope you enjoy.
