Being more intentional about getting time together as a couple sans kiddos meant we had to put it on the calendar. At the end of 2013, I added a monthly date night onto our Google calendar for the 3rd Monday of the month. (I wrote more about Marriage Goals in Action at Next Level Mama.) We haven’t planned the dates much beyond that point. Most of our date nights have been having dinner out (because we’re wannabe foodies), but we have stretched ourselves to be creative before, so hopefully we can vary things through the year. Any date night ideas?
February Date Night
No one shared date night ideas on the last post, and our brains didn’t want to work too hard to think of what to do, so since we’re wannabe foodies anyway, we wanted to try iSushi. We had takeout from there once. When we got there, we found that it was closed. Bummer! We decided on Aroma Cuisine of India. So we walked across the parking lot, and remembered right before we got there that it was closed on Mondays. I was craving sushi since that was the original plan. As we walked back to the car, I remembered that my parents’ restaurant was closed on Mondays, and that restaurants that are opened on the weekends probably took that day off to rest.
We didn’t want to drive too far for sushi, so we headed to Koyomi. We had been there once before. We settled in, and there was a good trickle of customers the whole time we were there, which was good for a Monday evening. It was kind of a get in and get out kinda date since it had been a long week and weekend.
We didn’t even remember to get a pic of the both of us while we were at the restaurant. I think I was too distracted by the basketball game and the basketball highlights that were showing on the TVs. We did take one when we got home. I seriously need to find out if someone has a “selfie” tutorial. I don’t know how people take such good selfies. :p
So a note to anyone who has regular date nights…don’t expect too many restaurant choices for Monday evening because lots of restaurants are closed on Mondays! :p
