It's been a while since I've posted...my computer is old, and sometimes it won't let me use the "Blogger" website (or Fossil or look at Facebook pics, etc? Random!) Anyway, without further ado - DATE DAY!
Robert and I have had a few dates since Maggie has been born, Sem Banquet and another dinner. But, for his graduation gift I wanted to plan a super fun DAY for just the two of us. So, the wonderful Amanda Taylor (and Emily for a little, too!) watched our sweet little one while the two of us celebrated together. We seriously had the best time!!
Up first - MB2 Raceway! MB2 is legit go-kart racing - so much fun and pretty intense. You have to sign a waiver that basically says I won't sue if I die; but, on the up-side, you get to pick cool racer names. Robert was Bobcat and I was Bobcat's Wife, haha. I was pretty scared before we raced, and for good reason. Basically, I almost killed someone, haha. Two guys wrecked in front of me and I didn't have time to put my brakes on and I literally ramped up on top of this guy and his car! It was terrifying! The rest of the race I drove at a crawling pace, letting everyone lap me...it was a 14 lap race, and I completed 8 laps! Robert came in 2nd place, though! A highlight for sure, though, was that we saw Steve Carrel with his wife and family there, having a family birthday party! So, racing was a blast!
Next - We headed to the Americana in Glendale! We walked around a little and then had an early dinner at the Cheesecake Factory! YUM!! We had a gift-card, but decided to "share:" fried macaroni (appetizer), Miso salmon with mashed potatoes and sugar snap peas, and Adam's Peanut-butter Cup Fudge Ripple Cheesecake - um YES! It was AMAZING. I'm hungry now...I need a snack.
Then - I got Robert a gift-card for The Art of Shaving , so we stopped in there. He got some gear? is that a proper term? He got some stuff for shaving - very legit, gentlemanly, "luxurious" shaving, haha. He was pretty excited; it was cute! And, bonus, his face smells amazing these days :)
Last - We had some movie tickets from Costco and we went to go see Avengers in 3D! It was our first time with 3D and it was pretty cool. I probably prefer regular viewing, but it was definitely a fun one to see in 3D - tons of action!
We came home to our beautiful baby sleeping soundly!
Thank you, Lord, for an amazing husband to share this grace of life called marriage! It truly is a gift from the Father, and I am so grateful for every second of it! Next week we head to Kauai!! We will celebrate our third anniversary and see all of my family - we are really looking forward to spending a lot more time together!!
