Date Night

My birthday was this past week and so far 32 is off to a great start!  JP and I decided to cash in on our friend Ashleigh’s offer to babysit Allston and off we went on our first date night!  Damn did we need it!

Allston didn’t realize that he wasn’t invited, hence the sourpuss face.

Date NightWe had a gift card to J. Alexanders, a really nice steakhouse near our house, that we put to good use!

I started with a glass of Pinot Noir and JP got an Old Fashioned.  We also got a BBQ chicken flatbread and salad to start.

The rest of the grub…

The highlight for me was, by far, their warm carrot cake with icing.  Oh my god this was good!!!!  I wish I wasn’t so stuffed so that I could’ve enjoyed it more.

For most people this would be a rather ordinary night out, but for us it was AMAZING!  It was our first time alone without Allston and so much fun to hang out just the two of us without playing a game of pass the baby.  We’ll have to do it again ;-)!
