since having g OVER a year ago (still can't believe that!) date nights are not as common as they used to be. matt and i still have "us" time every night when she goes down. and i love that time. we talk, watch jeopardy, whip up something delicious... but out-of-the-house date nights are a little more rare. a few months ago we started a "thing" where every month one of us plans a special date. we alternate months and june was my month (x-men movie planned for matthew and a sushi din din!) and july was matt's. Well we may have been a few days late, but boy did he plan a date! we went to see the little mermaid on Broadway in raleigh yall! it was perfection. and we saw the 2pm matinee which was also favorited by all of the 6 year old girls in north carolina. i felt right at home. truly. and then! then! we went to my fave mexican restaurant. well done baby daddy, well done. guess it's my turn to plan a spectacular date again!
and a special thanks to my trusty Iphone for snapping some moments from this wonderful date!
and on a totally random note - but sweet in-laws got G a bike seat for our bike for her birthday! which is perfect because we are big bike people. anyone have any recommendations for a good toddler/baby helmet? want to buy one asap!
** lots of G's birthday shenanigans coming up later this week on the blog! **
