Saturday morning I met Courtney for a run. The weather was perfecto and we ran for almost an hour so we were both happy with that. I did, however have to use Kroger's facilities along the way in order to be able to make it that long though. =)
Ther rest of Saturday morning was spent cleaning - after Kennedy and I were both sick for a bit this past week, I wanted to just dunk my whole house in Clorox. Too bad it's not that easy. I had to settle for cleaning it top to bottom - whew!
Billie came over around 1 and we worked on some shower prep for Abby. Clearly I can't give it away but let me just say...oh my cuteness. =) We worked until about 5 pm and Tim said to me..."Linds, you have about an hour". Oh.....ok I thought.
You see....I've been slightly unhappy about the fact that Tim and I've not had a date night in FOREVER and I've been communicating that to him. In the latter part of this past week he said he was working on getting something together but there'd been no further mention of it so I just figured it wasn't going to happen this weekend. That is until he gave me the "you have one hour to get ready" thing. I was like "um, where are we going, what do I need to wear, whose coming to watch Kennedy, how late will we be out, etc. etc. etc." OCD Mommy coming through! Thankfully Sara Beth babysat (thanks SB!) so I was totally at ease for the evening ahead.
Much to my surprise and delight it wasn't your ho hum typical date to Applebee's and a movie. There was some thought put into this process. We went to Halls on the river, which is a restaraunt I've been wanting to try for at least a year so I was thrilled that we were finally going to go. Giddy almost truthfully. I just love trying new places. The food was really good and the atmosphere even better. I did feel like I myself had been deep fried by the time I left, but oh well. It's not an everyday thing you know? I did feel the need to detox today but it was worth it! After dinner we went to Oktoberfest at Christ the King to see The Peter Rowan Bluegrass band play. They were really good. Tim and I learned early on in our relationship that we both had a liking for bluegrass music but we've never gone to see a concert aside from Nickel Creek so it was just a well thought out date night. We had a really good time!
We sat out on the patio and the weather was just right.
These, my friends are deep fried oreos. We were so full from our meal we contemplated not getting them but the waiter said they were so amazing that we thought we should go ahead and try em'. Yeah...amazing is an understatement.
We clearly weren't prepared for the amount of food that would be served. You know when Tim and I are taking home three to-go containers it was a TON of food. Ha!
Thursday of this week marked my 16th week in the pregnancy so my big helper and I took some belly pictures after church today. The bump is definitely growing.
