A Night Out

Dh and I occasionally get out together. Our hope is always to have a weekly date night, but often times we just watch a movie at home or walk through Lowe's together.

On Friday night, we were able to goto 2100 blue in Oakbrook, IL for dinner. We had a Marriott dinner certificate that was going to expire (thanks to his former employer's wellness program). If you have never used one of these they are fantastic! Ours included appetizers, salad, entree, dessert, tip, and taxes for 2. You really need to take advantage of one of the nicer Marriott's to get the full benefits of this. We ate and ate and enjoyed delicious food. The restaurant was quiet and we didn't feel rushed. We were able to actually talk to one and another whilst enjoying the view.

We have no family anywhere near us, so we depend on a very good babysitter. In the past, we have been able to have a nurse on the weekends. For a while a friend, who is a nurse, would watch our kids once a month so we could go out.
