Impromptu Date

On a very rainy Friday night last week, the hubby and I decided to hold off fighting the traffic on the way home and have dinner.

Off we headed to High Street, where we spent a few minutes browsing through the stores (he browsed, I bought crocs for Josh) then went to this quaint little restaurant that's famous for its pastries -- ensaymadas and the softest cheese roll you've ever tasted.

It was a beautiful night despite the rain. I could feel the stress of the week draining away as we sat at our table enjoying steaming plates of pasta and just quietly talking. It's a relief to be in a restaurant where you don't have trouble having a conversation.

In the picture you'll see what I had for dessert. The cheese roll, of course, and a cup of steaming Mint Hot Chocolate. Perfect for a cold rainy night.

Hi M---ahhhh, such a sweet thing to do. And especially at the end of the week.

A nice reminder to us all (smile).

Now THAT'S the thing to do...be spontaneous, don't try to fight life, and smell the roses.

Good on you and Hubby, Mench.

Aren't those improptu dates great? Last time Q and I did that was a few years ago when Kyle had been invited to a hockey game with the neighbors and Lucas got invited to sleep over at a friend's house. When Q came home from work, I informed him that we're going out--whether he feels like it or not.
