As mentioned previously, Joe and I lucked out and went on TWO date nights last week. First, we saw World War Z, which we both enjoyed. On our second date, we dined al fresco at Iven’s on the Bay which overlooks North Long Lake.By this time, we had spent about five straight days together (and… Continue reading An Up-North Date Night
To be perfectly honest, I haven’t blogged all week because every day was… well, rainy, gloomy, and slightly uneventful. During the day, Cece and I were back to the great indoors, coloring, sculpting play-doh, reading, getting some household organizing done, and watching the occasional Disney movie. Each night, after… Continue reading Stella’s
I hope these blurry phone photos capture the delight that was date night. Technically, we haven’t had a date since the summer. It sounds really pathetic when I say it that way, BUT, we do go on family outings frequently, including dinner. However, the last time Joe and I got a sitter and left the house… Continue reading Dated!
This weekend, we got a baby sitter, got a little dressed up, consumed massive quantities of Mexican food, and played a few completely skill-less rounds of pool after dinner. And we were still home before 11. In my book, that’s success. Thanks for sharing your photos, Robbyn!(Or, thanks for letting me swipe your phone and… Continue reading IPhone Photos via Robbyn
With Joe working, going to class, and doing homework, we haven’t seen very much of him lately. So he took his ladies on an afternoon date this week. We played mini-golf and followed it up with gelato at the Mall of America. It was slow-playing of the slowest kind. And, of course, C treated the… Continue reading Mini-golf date night
I’m 26 already? I’m pretty sure that’s what people consider their upper twenties. That seemed to happen awfully fast. I had a low-key, yet lovely day. And it was very food-centric, which was perfect. Joe made me banana pancakes, eggs, bacon, and coffee before he left for work this morning, even though he doesn’t even like banana pancakes. C and… Continue reading Twenty-six!
While staying up north over the holiday, Joe and I were shooed out to go on a date while grandma and grandpa stayed with Cece. We hit up the 371 Diner in Baxter with the intention of only getting ice cream. We ended up splitting a shake and then splitting a breakfast skillet per Joe’s request (even though we were about… Continue reading 371 Diner
Our weekend was quite fun. On Saturday I worked a little demo and Joe and Cece got some time together. When I came home, Joe had her all dressed up and the three of us went on a date to Don Pablo’s. (I missed Robbyn… I know how she feels about Mexican food.) Then on… Continue reading Date nights and dinners out
I had a hankering for Italian food this week, and I did not feel like being the one who made it. Thus, we paid a visit to Michaelangelo’s Masterpizzas, a small neighborhood Italian joint in southwest Minneapolis. I do mean small. There were maybe only six tables. However, our meal was anything but small. We ordered… garlic toast… Continue reading Date night, Italiano style
Chipotle Sunday is something Joe and I have been doing for years. (We’re easily putting the Chipotle kids through college.) We love having another enthusiastic participant to carry on the tradition with. Right now, we only let her hold the burrito so she can marvel at the foil. Someday, she’ll get to place her own little order and that will probably… Continue reading Chipotle Sunday
