After many weeks of no dates, Max and I finally went out together last night while my parents watched Chloe. We had the opportunity to drive together in our old, two-seater Honda CRX (which we sold to my youngest brother), and I was filled with nostalgia from our dating years! Four and a half years ago, Max proposed to me in this little red car:
The two of us went out of town to a nice Italian restaurant and then walked around a nearby mall. Our dinners were amazing! I got the Grilled Salmon entree, and Max got Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo.
We hit the mall just at the right time, there were deals everywhere. I got Chloe 15 pieces of clothing for only $1.99 a piece at the Children's Place! Max patiently waited while I went through EVERY baby girl item on the rack at least twice (He's such a good husband!).
And then there was the Lindt Chocolate store...
They were having a sale where if you buy 2 pounds of broken milk chocolate pieces for $16, then you get 3 POUNDS FREE. That averages out to about $3 a pound, which is the same price as a bag of chocolate chips in the store! Except this stuff was LINDT. Soooo... I may or may not have gotten TEN POUNDS of chocolate...
I do have many plans for this chocolate which I will share with you in the future! Right now the chocolate is being stored in my refrigerator...and I'm trying to forget about it... Indulging in 10 pounds of chocolate would be a really bad idea.
So yes, our date was a wonderful success, and we loved every minute of being together alone and having fun!
