It Was The Perfect Date

It’s a very rare and special thing these days for my husband and I to get to go out on an old fashioned date- just the two of us.  I texted some friends Don’t bug.  I’m on a date with my man. 

We were so happy to be alone it was ridiculous.

He drove, and I stretched out my legs and put my bare feet on the dashboard.  We drove Pacific Coast Highway with the windows down while eating take-out fish and chips from our favorite beach shack restaurant.

We’re casual people.

Someone gave us tickets to Cirque du Soleil- Kooza.  It was right on the beach and next to the pier.  The show and its location were spectacular!

After the show, we strolled the pier and held hands… just like the good ol’ days.  The pier was eclectic fun.

For $1.00 The Great Zoltar will predict your future in English- or Spanish.  It was pretty eerie. He kept saying I know you're there. I can tell your future. Come closer.

No thanks.  You are in my nightmares.

People, do you see what I have to deal with here? My husband is showing me that he has found his long lost twin.

More nightmares.

Long Lost Twins

 

Some of our stops…

little of this, little of that

We made some new friends…

Enjoyed the Ferris wheel…

And hoped that the guy who took our picture with my camera didn’t run away with it while we had our backs turned.

  Don't take my camera, please

 

It was the perfect date.

How awesome is that???? With little kids our date nights are few and far between - and when we have them they are very short. Sounds very romantic and wonderful. Thanks for sharing. Now I can live vicariously through this post and look forward to date nights again :o)

Oh, how much fun!! I thought I was the only one that put my bare feet on the dashboard lol!! Sounds like a date that my husband and I would love..we are very casual people too. This weekend we had a semiformal to go to and my husband said take a picture cause this won't be happening for another 10 years!!

Renea Lynch said...

Awesome!!!! I wish we had places to go like that for our date nights! It's great to get away with the hubby no matter what you're doing though. Thanks for sharing...Love the evil twin pic! LOL ♥

Lori said...

Loved it!! How sweet!!

Jaimee said...

Awesome!!! Love the last picture, and so glad the guy did not run off with your camera! How did your hubby allow you take pictures of the date and post them on the blog, my husband gets so mad when I try to take pictures of things we are doing! Is there a "wife's who blog" training for men?

Camille said...

Zoltar gave me nightmares after watching Big when younger! Your date looked absolutely romantic! Good for you for getting out and spending time with your man! :)

midnight said...

Congratulation for having such a beatifull relationship with your husband. This is a very precious thing. Keep on.

Gardenia said...

lovely. it reminded me of my high school days going to the carnival -- those lazy summer nights, the romance in the air. It really is about the company, not the place, you know?
