What We Do Without Kids

Last night was date night for hubby and I. We went out with some friends (hey Shawn and Lynette my blogstalkers) and had a wonderful time. I would love to be able to show you my outfit, but alas I am the picture taker so no can do. Let me say though how much I enjoyed getting all dressed up for a night on the town. Yes, that means cute dress, cuter shoes, little handbag, jewelry, and I know you won't believe it, even a bit of makeup.

We started with dinner. Rehoboth is known for their assortment of nice restaurants as many of the chef's have came from Washington, Baltimore, and other bigger cities and they bring yummy menus with them. Dave and I enjoy trying out new restaurants so for birthdays, anniversary's, and night outs we always go someplace we have never been. Sometimes we find a great place to remember fondly and then others are quickly forgotten, never to be returned to again. Our motto, "With all the great restaurants around why go back to one that didn't impress." Last night we visited a restaurant that was supposed to have a french flair and we were sorely disappointed. With $12 hot dogs, $15 mac n cheese, and popcorn as a side dish, none of us were impressed. I am one of those people who immediately looks at the desserts and when I didn't find much there, I admit my impression may have been tainted right from the beginning. Anyways, I ended up getting a shrimp wrap panini and Dave got a burger, with the popcorn side. It wasn't bad, but left much to be desired. Thank goodness the wine was good and the company and conversation even better, otherwise I may have become a disgruntled patron.

After dinner we walked around town and played tourists. There are carnival type games set up on the boardwalk with a horse race game that Dave and I enjoy playing. The object is to get your horse to the end of the track by rolling a ball into different colored holes to get your horse to move. Here is Shawn and Lynette showing how it's done.

Let me just say...It is very addicting!! We always end up spending an exorbitant amount of money to win a stuffed horse that then sits around the house, but hey you have to get your kicks somewhere. Last night wasn't any different as we played and played until eventually I won a horse. Of course, Dave had to continue to play because there was no way he would let me be the only one to win, cause we are competitive like that!! So he played another and won his own.

Here he is "holding his horses" while I used the restroom. took me a minute to get the pun too!!

Of course, going out with adults means you get to have fun acting like kids so...

*Lynette titled this picture..."What would you do to get on the blog?"
We ended the night with a Chocolate Mack Daddy Shake from a local ice cream stop. The perfect ending to a perfect night.
A big thanks to Grampy and Gramma for watching the kiddos so Dave and I could have a night out. It was so nice to be able to be together, not as mommy and daddy, but as husband and wife, or just best friends. I am truly blessed with the marriage that God has given to me. Dave is such an easy going guy and definitely the ying to my yang, the salt to my pepper, the sand to my beach, the sweet n sour sauce to my nuggets...need I go on?!
So a big shout out to my hubby...I love you babe and am glad we got to spend the night together!!
That concludes my sappiness. Back to the real life world. Excuse me while I go yell at the kids who are back home and fighting over who knows what.


  1. Glad you and Dave had a great night out. I know Grampy and Grandma enjoyed having the kids! When I'm down next weekend you are going to have to tell me the name of this restaurant! Sounds terrible! As you know, I lived for a short while in Paris and I don't remember eating popcorn or even seeing it the whole time I was there!
    Love, Aunt Steph
