Date Night

On Saturday afternoon Keith suggested that we have a date night. Pretty short notice but if he wants to go out I am all for it. He suggested dinner and a movie. Right away I call one of the neighborhood sitters that we use to see if anyone is available. I hit the jackpot on the first phone call so we were set.

The sitter ran over at 6:00 to watch our kids and Keith and I start quizzing Keaton on what movie to go see. There was only one movie showing that we had any interest in seeing, "The Blind Side". The problem was that the movie started at 6:45. How were we going to get dinner in before the movie? The answer in our haste was to return the Red Box movie from Friday night, drive thru Burger King and grab a sandwich, stop at the bank ATM for cash and then get to the movie theater. Good thing we live in a small town where we could accomplish all of that in a short amount of time.

We loved the movie!!! We are both huge football fans so I was sure that we would enjoy it. We got out of the movie at 9:00 and we both looked at each other and said "Now what do we do?". So we headed to a local sports bar for a drink and nachos.

It is no wonder that throughout the night and the next morning that we both had stomach aches. We ate enough junk food in one night to make up for all of the junk food that we both had been depriving ourselves since we started watching what we eat and working out. If you look at what we had to eat - Burger King sandwiches, movie theater popcorn with butter, large sodas, nachos and margaritas. I'm surprised we didn't throw up on all of that junk. My body isn't used to junk food like that any more. Thank heavens we don't eat like that very often! But, it was a GREAT night out away from our kids!

Take care,


  1. I can't see a movie without popcorn. Literally can't do it. With extra butter! So, you're OK in my book.

  2. Always fun to go to a movie with the Hubs, isn't it! I can't resist movie popcorn! Hope you're having a great week!


  3. Sounds like you had a great date night!! Pat and I have one this weekend..... My parents are watching the kids....can't wait!!

    Have a wonderful week!



  4. Holy cats! We were in the same exact boat -- Runza food for lunch, an extra large buttered popcorn at the movie and Mexican food for dinner. I wanted to puke!

    Glad you had fun on your night out. We had a blast too! You must go see "It's Complicated" next, although I loved the Blind Side too! I am already planning our next date night! We need out more!

  5. Date nights are great but I like that it was on short notice too! We have been wanting to see the "Blind Side" for awhile but I am sure we will see it on video. Can't wait to see the wreath you made!

  6. Sounds like a great last minute night. We had one the other night too and we weren't feeling so good the next morning either!
