Date Night With My Man

My man asked me out on a date first thing this morning.  I love that he still does this.  He makes it a priority to take me out at least every other week, and has since the day we married.  I’m a lucky lady!

I knew exactly where I wanted to go.  There is a place in town called Bread & Cup, and they do something pretty special on Saturday nights.  They shop at the Farmer’s Market which is downtown every Saturday, and make the menu for the evening based on the fresh, local produce they find.  I LOVE that!  I was at the Farmer’s Market this morning with my oldest girl, and the produce looked AMAZING.  

The problem was, when we saw the price of such a grand idea, we decided it was a bit much for our budget right now and instead ordered some Bread with Hummus & Roasted Tomato Pesto, & some wine.  We decided to enjoy the outdoor atmosphere, wet our appetites a bit on great sourdough bread and dip, and then hit another place later on for some sushi, which would be a bit more affordable.

The weather was amazing.  It was about 80 degrees with a slight breeze.  

The bread and dip was perfection, and quite filling!

Just as we were finishing up, the clouds rolled in and we started hearing sprinkles hit the roof above us. It made such a calming sound, so we sat just a bit longer.

I had to take a pic of my new wedge shoes.  I’ve been wanting a pair of these ‘match with everything’ colored shoes.  They are super comfortable and were 1/2 off at Famous Footwear. I love a good deal and a good shoe!  Let us all notice that I need a pedicure.  I’m thinking that should be something I do right after the kids go back to school. 
We left Bread & Cup and went just a couple blocks over to Dozo Sushi & Grill.  I’m a big fan of their sushi.
By now the rain was really starting to come down, but thanks to Todd dropping me off at the door I stayed dry.

I am a huge sushi lover and have to have it at least every couple weeks.  Todd loves it too, and he especially loves the music they play at this place, which he comments on every time we go.  I think it’s cute.  

 We shared just one order of sushi as the bread really did fill us both up quite a bit.

I took a few shots outside while waiting for my man to pick me up after we ate.  I love being downtown!  The rain had stopped but the clouds still looked like they had a bit left to give..

We have desperately needed rain here in the Midwest, so this was a welcomed site.

A coffee house right next to the Sushi Grill.  How perfect.  My two favs.

 Now we are home, kids are settled down, and Todd is waiting for me to get this post up so we can finish our date.  He has popcorn and a movie all ready to go.  I am a very spoiled and blessed girl!

    Amy- stumbled upon your blog while searching for a way not to be CRAZY mom now that my two daughters are headed off to school and preschool (one in each) later this week. Thanks for your great post on morning routines/charts/lists for the kids AND then found your fall routine post (LOVE this). I shared these both with my mom and sisters as we can often be a bit distracted from tasks at hand. Truly looking forward to following your blog. I’m inspired and now really looking forward to the week and reading you! And — yay for date nights with a wonderful husband and sushi. Yum.
