3/12 (a year of dates)

Date three of twelve happened this weekend after the longest and fastest month of my life. Somehow it's practically April and so Evan snuck our March date in there real quick.

We tried out a new Hibachi grill and oh me oh my, that meal easily made my Top Ten Meals of my life. Let me give you background about a Hibachi grill in case you've never been to one before. You sit at a U shaped table with a bunch of other people and a chef grills your meal right in front of you on a million degree flat top stove. You sit with a bunch of other people. So awkward, yes. Obviously Evan and I planned this out real well because we got stuck with a table of high school prom children. Thrilled. So thrilled.

Besides the children, our meal was so great. Our little Hibachi chef was hilarious and also pretend sprayed me in the chest with some saki...awkward...and then made fun of the way I say, "Thank you." So. I mean, all in all, good times.

Evan and I were going to go bowling afterwards but the men who work at the bowling alleys are so. rude. So, needless to say, we did not go bowling. Instead we went to a wine and tapas bar and shared a bottle of wine and talked for almost two uninterrupted hours (I mean, literally. Our server totally forgot about us.).

It was so super low-key and after the craziest month with a certain someone's first birthday party, it was so needed. Evan will be in LA for the next little while before Maddox and I join him, and it was kind of perfect to spend some time just the two of us. What's weird is how this used to be our thing, our weekly thing. Like, if I didn't get uninterrupted weekly time with Evan, I threw a total fit and probably had to hurt someone. Now, Evan and I spend a few hours together after Maddox falls asleep almost every night and we make time for each other in the mornings and during lunch breaks and always when Maddox is around so that he grows up in a home where his parents love the ish out of each other.

Evan also continued our date to Sunday morning when he woke up early with Maddox and made chorizo and eggs for us. And then because Maddox likes to climb out of his highchair and so Evan couldn't leave the kitchen, he scream-yelled at the top of his lungs, "Ri-ise and shi-ine and give God the glory, glory. Ri-ise and shi-ine and give God the glory, glory. RISE. AND. SHINE. AND. give God the glory, glory, child-ren of. the. Lord." until I woke up and joined them in the kitchen to the most delicious breakfast I've had in quite some time. I'm a big fan of this man and the way he loves. A big fan.

And now that that song is stuck in your heads.....BYEEE.

2 loves:

  1. Song is totally stuck in my head :) I sing that to Roman when he gets up if I am home...
