Seven Things on a Saturday: Date Night Edition!

Tonight my parents have graciously offered to host my son for a sleepover at their house so my husband and I can have a date night.  We dropped him off at lunchtime, and set out on our afternoon/evening date.  I'm posting this before getting ready to leave the house!

1- High School Reunion:  My high school turned 50 this year, so we stopped in to the open house today.  My husband grew up in a different country, so it was fun to show him what high school looked like for me!  I forgot how BIG my high school was!  A great trip down memory lane and a wonderful start to our afternoon.

2- Relaxed Iced Coffee:  Sitting down with my husband at a coffee shop and just watching the world go by is not something we do a lot of these days.  I like taking my son out with us, but it was fun to just relax on our own schedule.

3- Planning: Ok so maybe this is the least romantic part of the day, but with a two year old, practicality sometimes wins out.  There are a few rooms in our house that we're trying to reorganize to be more useful, and we did some planning around that this afternoon.  Particularly the dining room, which I'd like to remain as a dining room, but that will also function as my workspace.  With all of the storage hidden.  We'll see how that works out.

4- IKEA: This is where we will be heading next to look around and get some ideas.  Again, don't judge me.  This works for us!

5- Dinner:  We will be heading from furniture browsing to a lovely dinner, probably involving gluten-and dairy-free items that we have banned from our home!  Well, at least my husband will be ordering those things.  I've been feeling better since changing my diet too.

6- Dancing/Movie:  This depends on the weather.  It's been raining like crazy all day, and I really don't feel like driving all the way to the place we like to go in bad weather.  I know that I sound like a crazy old lady right now, but I don't care.  The days of sacrificing comfort for a club are LOOOONNNNGGGG GONE.

7- Glass of Wine:  I can't believe how long it's been since my husband and I have just chilled on the couch with a glass of wine.  Can't wait!

Reminder:  The menu plan will be posted tomorrow.
