Date night 7/52 ~ The date that almost wasn't

We didn't really have a destination this week.
Last week we forgot to pull a new date out.
I didn't think it would be that big of a deal, and it really shouldn't have been.
Except Saturday ended up being one of those days that we were both off.
If it's one or the other it's not a big deal.
Both of us though means crankiness & blah.
Added to the lack of enthusiasm was the not-so-minor detail
that Matt had to work again all weekend.

I had thought that we could go to the neighborhood coffee shop,
before dinner.
Matt thought we could go after dinner.
Really this should not have been a big deal, but it was.

All 3 kids told us we had to go out (love this!)
Matthew even pulled out our date night tin & started pulling out ideas.
He mixed up being silly & trying to be helpful.

He found the idea "dessert at a new restaurant" and
insisted it was perfect. Which really it was.

We headed out,
and decided to try a restaurant that we haven't been to in a long time.
When we share desserts I usually pick so this time I let Matt.
He chose lava cake.

Alghough I thought it was pretty good,
Matt has this memory of eating some very very good lava cake somewhere
in Oregon so this didn't make the tasty cut for him.
I have no clue where that was but
I now want to find a fabulous recipe to surprise him with.

All in all this ended up being a good thing.
We had some good necessary conversation &
learned some new things about each other.

We will definitely try this again when we are in sync.

For our next date I decided we need to do something fun.
So we are going to go to an arcade & play games.
It will be fun to act like kids & goof off a little bit.
