I just had a funny memory.
Once my mom was on the phone with one of her sisters and said "I'm catching up and crossing off the dates on my calendar. How about you?"
That really ticked me off.
She shouldn't be thinking about and making dates because she was already married to my daddy so as soon as she left the room I took it upon myself to cross out all the other dates so she wouldn't know where to go or when.
I don't remember how that story ends, just how it began. But I thought it was funny so there ya go.
Any ways, a spontaneous $20 date night from last week!
We ate dinner at home and then went to Johnny J's for milkshakes.
Diners are milkshake masters. They make the best milkshakes ever, and they give you that lovely, normal-sized glass and also bring out the rest of the shake in its metal mixing cup. That's WAY too much shake for either of us so we split one. I expected one glass and one metal mixing container, but instead she poured it into two glasses and even gave us both whipped cream and a cherry... which means I got two cherries because Ryan hates them!
This is the kind of date I imagine us going on once a month after we feel comfortable leaving the baby with a sitter for an hour.
This date lasted just under 45 minutes and was $5 after tip.
