The Date.

Saturday night Leo and I decided to do something we had not done in a long time (get your minds out of the gutter, people).

We planned a date.

Not your typical date, though.

This was an at home date. After sleepy girls were tucked into bed.

Lucky for us our girls go to bed early. Extra early on days that are spent outdoors. Extra extra early on days spent outdoors sans naps.

It's a win-win situation on these days. A rarity, but a win-win.

Leo went and picked us up some Mexican takeout...and I'm not talking about Taco Bell. He got us the good stuff. The real stuff.

He arrived home with our date food and a bottle of Skinnygirl Margaritas and we were set.

It was perfect. It was a date.

And it was just us.

We have now decided we will have our dates more often...

Even if they are "just at home".

I love simple "at home" dates those and picnicks are my favorite... There is no pretense and no one listening in so you can just be yourself and really reconnect...

As much as I like dining out for date night I truly love stay at home date nights. No having to rush through dinner for a movie or having to dress up...perfect!

Glad you guys had a good time :)
