See this blissful picture of us?
This was us on a date a few years ago, before Abby. Back in these days we would do dinner AND a movie, or anything else we desired. It could be on any night during the week (not just Saturdays like now) and it didn't matter what time we got home.
Now for us, dates are so much different. We finally were able to go on one last night, thanks to me not having work. The date went like this.
We dropped Abby off
Caught the 6:55 showing of Taken 2 (which I LOVED). We even splurged and used the rest of our gift card on popcorn.
After the movie, we got gas.
Picked Abby up.
Got take out from Cafe Trang (probably my new favorite Chinese place)
Changed from my hot date clothes to sweats pulled up way past my belly button, shirt tucked in, and pockets hanging out. I washed my face and put a sexy clip in my hair.
We ate our food while watching the news.
Put Abby to bed at 10:30 (little stink stays up so late when I'm home.)
Put on an exciting movie. Ok it was actually Bobby's World.
And we were both snoozing soundly on the couch by 10:45.
It wasn't a big date.
No fancy restaurant was involved.
No pictures were taken.
We were home before 10.
And yet, it was absolutely perfect.
