Then out of nowhere a blog "challenge" if you will came about on a public group im in. So here I am and I'm going to try and keep this thing going. Bare with me as I make changes and update content. Feel free to sift through my old posts, you just might learn something new about me....

Lunch Date with Hubby.

Per the Dr. Kris and I are spending some time away from Aiden.  Trying to make sure we are getting enough "mommy & daddy" time and also some well needed quiet time.  We went for sushi last month and today we went out for lunch at Ramono's Macaroni Grill.  We'd heard mixed reviews, but we had a gift card and figured we couldn't let it go to waste!

It was soo yummy!!  They start of the meal with olive oil and fresh cracked black pepper to go with their bread.  Oh my goodness it was such fresh bread.  I had a blackberry mint ice tea which was also very refreshing.  Different, but I enjoyed it.  For dinner Kris got Shrimp Portofino - Jumbo shrimp sauteed with fresh spinach, mushrooms and pine nuts in a lemon butter sauce with imported capellini pasta.  I had Mushroom Ravioli - Ravioli filled with tender mushrooms and melted cheese, then topped with Marsala cream sauce.  Both were really good, but I had to say I think mine was better! 

We both got dessert too!  Don't you have to have dessert when you go out to eat?  I think so!  Kris had Simple Lemon Pound Cake - lemon pound cake garnished with fresh strawberries and I had Smothered Chocolate Cake - rich chocolate cake topped with homemade ganache and pecan pieces.  As you can see they both looked delish.  My cake was soo rich though I had to take most of it home.  I plan to enjoy the leftovers soon with coffee.  

Oh!  And they had the white paper down on the table for us to color on.  Crayons were provided of course!  So I took the lead and drew an Orca whale.  Kris was a restaurant prude - he was afraid to color and said I was acting like a high schooler.  He also did not approve of me brushing crumbs off the table onto the floor.  Lastly when I added more Olive Oil to our dish he said "I don't think you are supposed to do that".  I teased him.  Finally he joined in on coloring!

After we had our lunch we went to Walmart to get a few things we needed {soo romantic I know} and then on to Best Buy to browse around.  It was just nice to be out and not have to worry about if Aiden needs a nap or a bottle or a diaper change.  Usually I don't mind, he loves going to Target with us, but sometimes it's nice to go without him.  My mom enjoyed time with Aiden anyway. 

Next week we have a date to go see Iron Man 2 in theaters.  Very excited about that too - we haven't seen a movie since Thanksgiving when Aiden was a baby and slept through it.  Next weekend Kris' parents get to watch him while we go out.  Spreading the love!
