Date Night

Sometimes a girl needs to go out.

Just get all dressed up, and pretty feeling, and get out of the house to be a woman, not a mommy.

Unfortunately, my husband is a home body.  He loves being home.  And getting him to leave the house is like pulling teeth from an alligator.  You have to be fast and tricky, or you may lose a hand.

Well, not the hand part, but I do have to trick him.  And it doesn't always work.

One night, I was in desperate need to get out of the house.  I just needed some me time without anyone hanging on my legs or demanding my attention.

I was discussing my woes with a friend, and as luck would have it, she too had a husband who was so busy, and such a homebody, she didn't get out very often.
So, Heather and I decided to do something about it!  We went out on a date with each other. 

Oh my goodness, it was so much fun!


We went to a small El Salvadorian restaurant for pupusas.  If you haven't enjoyed pupusas, you really haven't tasted life.  They are gorgeous!  We also had platanos fritos with frijoles and crema (translated, fried bananas, beans and cream).  Heather wasn't a fan of the bananas and beans, but I love them.  She said it was a texture thing for her.


We then went to Farr's for some ice cream and oogling everything in that store.  It is more than an ice cream shop. It is a little gift shop as well.  It has a little of everything, and Heather laughed and said I was just like a kid in a candy shop.  But I can't help myself.  Everything was so nostalgic, and you know I can't resist nostalgia!

We then went book browsing in...

Walmart!  Yep,  it was too late and everything else was closed, so we had not other choice, really.

It was so nice to get out without the kids, and have someone else put them to bed.  And a little girl time is always sought after!

And so, I have found the perfect solution.  When I am feeling neglected, and like I need to get out, I just need to call Heather, get dressed up, and within hours, I can be out on a date.  :)
