DINNER AND A SHOW


Photobucket

for as long as I can remember

Steve and I have had a date every Friday night.

It is recommended by the Church leaders for a happy marriage.

They also encourage:
Family Home Evenings, family prayer and scripture reading

which, to be honest, I struggle with.

But, we sure don't have trouble keeping date night.

These days our date night is always, almost without exception, the same:
dinner at Texas Land and Cattle on Riverwalk.
Steve orders the large steak, I get shrimp and we share.
it is perfect.

Steve will tell you that I rarely try new places or even new menu items
why?
because if I only get out to eat once a week,
I want to make sure I love what I eat,
so I don't take chances


Well, last night, we got adventurous !
We bought a coupon for $45 for dinner and a play for two.



the dinner was at a fun Italian restaurant

there was cute vintage decor

and people stepping into our shot

We got front row/center seats to "Red White and Tuna".

Small local theater is my favorite way to see plays
.

the show was hilarious

....if you like small town Texas gossip humor

We looked forward to it all week, and planned our outfits,

which was half the fun




I love date night

and I love my date

Easiest Commandment to Keep.

Hey Thank you for the idea it just popped into my head. Sharing Time tomorrow is on Keeping the Commandments.

I will add this one for the Teachers ;.)

Especially since it will be all Brothers for Sister Sunday ;.)

We really need to be better about a regular date night....maybe in 5 or so years when Aaron can babysit!

Brittany said...

Fun, fun! I'm glad it's cooling down so you can be stylin' for fall in your cute coordinated outfits.

Stefanie said...

I'm sorry,
I haven't been checking the blogs for a while.
That was one fun date!
And one beautiful girl!!!!

It was in a different part of San Antonio so it was exciting to see the new sights.
OH YEAH, we tried a new restaurant. And liked it!
Thanks for your skillful search of the internet for entertainment bargains. This one really paid off!
Can't wait for next weekend!
