Flashback Friday: Date Night

Friday, March 5, 2010

I know it was only a week ago, but I can't help reminiscing about our date last Friday. It took lots of strategic planning and gave me a chance to dust off my project manager hat.

First task, secure baby sitter. My friend Maj agreed to watch Marlie. She is a cloth-diapering mama too, and she has an 11 month-old boy. She knows the drill and we trust her. Bonus: no cost!

Second task, plan date. After much discussion (because we have one shot at this....who knows when we'll have this opportunity again?), we decided on an early dinner at our favorite Indian restaurant followed by Avatar at the 3D IMAX.

Third task, rest up. Nothing can kill the mood on a date faster than one or both parties yawning. Damon had the day off work, so we both took naps to make sure neither of us fell asleep in the dark theater.

It was a night to remember (or am I thinking of my Prom Night theme?). Anyways, Project Date Night was a success!

LOL Gotta love how elaborate the details need to be planned. We are the same way! I thinking finding the babysitter is the hardest part (well other than not falling asleep!)

Sounds like you planned it prefectly and it went off without a hitch. I am totally jealous!

That was smart to take naps! I'm glad that you had a terrific time. You deserve it!

It's funny that you mentioned yawning on date night. Either the husband or myself will usually fall asleep during the movie on our date night. WE must get it together soon!

Hugs and Mocha,

You're so cute. We all know that you didn't take the nap so that you wouldn't fall asleep in the theater...you did it because of the "after party" LOL
