Date weekend

This past weekend was wonderful. The kids were absent.

Not that we didn't miss them.

But we were having a lot of fun. Shopping. My husband is one of the few men on this planet who doesn't mind shopping. Don't hate me.

We hit the mall and Toys R Us and very nearly completed the Christmas shopping. And we got some new duds for the two of us. Jay's work clothes needed some updating and me, well, you see, I got rid of anything remotely warm on account fo the hot flashes.

Now, I am FREEZING cold all the time. Sweaters and long sleeved shirts were on the agenda.
Layering is so in right now, thank goodness!

There is no happy medium my thermostat. Only extremes.

Then we got all dolled up and headed out for a nice dinner.


We clean up okay, when we put some effort into it. And don't worry, I wore a jacket over the sleeveless shirt.

For dinner we tried an upscale place. Our tastes have gotten a bit more sophisticated than the A&W burgers we once dined on when out on dates. I had a pancetta wrapped tuna that was unbelievable. Sometimes I wish I lived closer to the sea, I do love me some tuna.

And call me crazy but a dinner out without colouring sheets and crayons is a nice treat every now and then.

It's so nice to have that time together and we really enjoy it because we don't get it that often.

And don't worry about the kids, they were hanging out with my parents and had lots of fun.

Thanks Grandma and Pop, we hope you enjoyed it as much as we all did!

Don't forget to enter my contest, it closes Thursday December 4.
Whoa, it's December already? Where did the time go?

You two are tooooo cute together! I do agree - it is nice to dress up every now and then and go somewhere where there are no crayons!!! I'm glad you had such a good weekend and had some time with your hubby!

Take care- Kellan

I am so envious!!! I am hoping that when my MIL visits later this month that my hubby and I can get away to a B&B for a night.

Now that does sound like a great weekend! David likes to shop more than I do...and we always leave the kids in bed at my moms and fight the crowds on black friday together. fun times.

Oh and you two look great!!! Glad you got to eat somewhere that didn't have any crayons!

Wow, look at you two all "perdy!!!" That's how we say it down her in Texas, you know! ; )

Seriously, you and Jay look great. I am glad you had a nice dinner out just the two of you. I have to say I am looking forward to my kid-less weekend next week! : )

You guys look great, and for the record I ask for the crayons and the paper menu even when the boys aren't with us ;)
