Last night my husband took me out on a date. We were designating Friday nights as date night but things got busy and it sort of fell through the cracks. The other day I mentioned that I missed not dating anymore. Doing house chores, working on the yards, and work has really been taking up all our free time. I think we finally got into a rut. Have you ever been in a rut? Everyday seems to be the same. It's like that old commercial by Dunking Donuts...."gotta get up and make the donuts." Do you remember that commercial? That's how I've been feeling lately.

Well, yesterday my husband called me and received a huge bonus check from one of his projects. He told me to get ready because when he got home he was taking me out on the town. We ended up at a fantastic Indian restaurant. It was delish. Anyone else love Indian food? The restaurant was so relaxing and had excellent service. The staff had bow ties on and it really reminded me of the 1950's. The manager was so sweet and kept checking on us. He kept asking my husband if he liked the food. My husband has a favorite Indian dish that we haven't been able to find at any of the restaurants in Houston. He asked the manager if they could prepare it and they happily whipped it up for him. My husband was in heaven. Then afterwards took the long way home through the city. I love driving in the city at night. I remember we use to drive through San Francisco at night. It's like an entirely different world than during the day.
We had such a nice time that we are back on the track with our Friday date nights. I wonder what we shall do next weekend. Any ideas for a fun date night?


  1. I'm glad you had such a wonderful time.

  2. First, congrats on the bonus check! Gotta love surprises like that.

    I know what you mean about being in a rut. Never fun and can be hard to get out of it.

    So glad y'all had a fun date! Have you tried Indika?

    Here's the link...

    It's in Montrose. I never made it over there but I've heard GREAT things about it and they offer cooking classes. How fun would that be?

  3. Sounds like a really nice evening, and date nights are such a great idea. I'll tell DH to do so too. We do, indeed, but not planned. Suddenly we drive either my vintage car or his (almost) vintage mc, eat an icecream, go for a walk at the harbour and look at all the ships. Or last Thursday we didn't have the energy to cook so we went to a cafe with great pancakes (filled with chicken, bacon and salad) and suddenly I dragged him to the nearby cinema and we saw Knight and Day - I just love action movies. And also sitting in the darkness with the man of mine for THIRTY years hand in mine. :)
