Date Night

Date nights have been few and far between these days.  It's very rare that we have the inclination to go out on a weeknight when my sister, Meaghan, is available to babysit.  Although last week, we did go out for beer and wings, classy no?  Weekends are really hard too because, to start, Andy works two weekends a month and my sister is a hairdresser so she works on the weekends (not that I would ever steal her weekend because she watches Isabella 2 days a week for free).  My mom isn't well enough to watch her and to take her to my in-laws is a 45 minute drive.

However, date nights are important.  They allow us a few child-free hours to reconnect, reminisce, and relax.  Sometimes it's a low key dinner or a movie and sometimes it's a big to-do.  We've both decided that we need to make more of a commitment to having semi-regular date nights.

A few weeks ago I ran a promotion for Miss. Abigail's Guide to Dating, Mating, and Marriage  and, while I was so super excited that I was able to go, based on the title Andy was less than enthusiastic.  However, I nagged convinced him that it would be a great way for us to have an out and out date night.  I've arranged for Isabella to spend the night at my in-laws.  We're going to see the show, grab dinner and a few drinks, come home, yaddah yaddah yaddah, sleep in and have breakfast in bed.  I'm so excited I can hardly stand it.  How do you manage to make time for your date nights?

*I did receive two free tickets to see the play in order for me to write a review.  This post is clearly not a review it just happened to fit in with what  I wanted to yak about anyway.  If you want to see the show at a discounted rate just use the code DATING. *
