Date Night aka Valentine's Date

Since my Mom is having a surprise birthday party at our house on her birthday (Valentine's Day), we opted to celebrate this past weekend. The plan was to go to eat and then to a movie. We went to Huntsville, about an hour away. We had a wonderful meal at T.G.I.Friday's and then ruled the movie out. We had a half off appetizer and then I had a coupon for buy one entree and get one free. Yippee! The food was delish! We both had steaks of sorts and shrimp as well. When the waitress found out that we were celebrating Valentine's early, she brought us a brownie type dessert! Yummy! we were stuffed and had plenty of leftovers. One of my favorite parts of supper was the sweet potato fries. They were out of this world! I sure do wish I had the recipe! Supper and tip was about $30.

After supper we headed to Barnes and Noble to walk supper off and we had a blast! We each found some books (10), a video for the boys and a calendar for my parent's office. We paid less than $50 for all of it. We stayed and just shopped for about 2 1/2 hours. we sang and laughed all the way home. We came home to the boys fast asleep and a tired but happy sitter.


Many Blessings on your Valentine's Day! What are you doing this year?

Sounds like you had a good date. We don't really plan to do anything. Our anniversary is the Saturday the 7th, so we are splitting the girls up and letting each grandparents keep one while we go eat and maybe to a movie. But a friend also gave me $100 to go to gymboree's big sale and get the girls some clothes for the summer, so I know we are doing that too. It just doesn't seem right to ask for a babysitter both Saturday's.

I'm so glad you had a great night together. The food does sound delicious, and I love those bookstore deals! Heading to the bookstore would definitely be a fun time to me.

We're going to a Valentines Banquet the night before Valentines Day, pending finding a babysitter.

Thanks for the pic! It's nice to see a face on our blogging friends once in a while:)

We are going to Louisiana for John's brother's third marriage. Ugh! We don't do much for Valentine's Day anyway since our anniversary is the 17th. And Daniel's birthday is the 12th which we are celebrating this Saturday since we will be out of town next.

I was hoping to bake some Valentine's cookies and such, but we shall see what happens next week.

What a wonderful night. Wow, dinner for $30 and all those things at the book store for $50. Great job.
My parents are taking the twins to Calico ghost town for a reinactment of the civil war? Not sure if thats correct but the twins LOVE it. This will be their 3rd time to this event. So not sure what hubby and I will do. Hum... now ya got me thinking. I know for sure I want to try and make those choc. covered strawberries. :)
