Date Night

Went on a date with my wife tonight. It was a long time coming and I believe we both had a great time. As much fun as it was to have my sister stay with us this summer, it will be nice to have it be just the two of us again. (And Brodie, of course).

Since the beginning of our relationship, Rach and I have always been quite comfortable just hanging out together. One of our favorite past times is watching television and/or movies. It is even more enjoyable on the projector we bought, which allows us to watch a 90" picture and listen to our 5.1 Dolby surround sound system in our basement. It is nice to look over and watch her watching the tv, with her face lit with the ambient light. It is one of life's simple pleasures.

Tonight, we ate dinner at Chili's, which is a restaurant we have not enjoyed for months, since there is not one near our house. Of course we started with the chips and salsa, which is always tasty. Rach had a mango margarita and I had a Miller Lite. We both ordered the Buffalo Chicken salad, which was very good. And we ended with the molten chocolate cake. How very suburban of us, no?

Then we went over to the movie theater and watched the movie (500) Days of Summer. It was the perfect date movie as it was not too "lovey-dovey", which I don't like, and it was not too "shoot-em up" which she doesn't like. It was a very good movie. The script was good, the acting was good, the soundtrack was great. All in all, it made for a great night.

Tomorrow the in-laws come in for the weekend and then Rach starts back to school, so it was a nice way to cap off the summer and have a little bit of fun.
