Date Number One for 2013

As I mentioned in this post, I wanted to make it a priority to go on at least 6 dates with Phil this year. We had close to that number last year, but I just wanted to be sure we got to enjoy some time together :)

We hired a babysitter that works at our church nursery because Jillian really likes her. We figured it would make the transition easier :) First up was dinner at a local sushi place! We have been looking for a replacement for our favorite since it's 90 minutes away from us. Well folks, we may have found the one!

We usually order the following: miso soup, house salad, rainbow roll, a hand roll for Phil, and a recommendation from the waiter. We then compare it to our favorite restaurant and go from there.

The miso soup was good and the dressing on the house salad wasn't too bad. I still prefer the original house salad, but I would eat it again. We also added an order edamame because it sounded good :)

Then we got our plate of sushi:
{Clockwise from top left: Rainbow Roll, Sunset Roll (Waiter's Recommendation), and The Old Fashioned Roll (a cooked vegetarian roll I really wanted to try). Next to Phil's hand: Spicy Yellowtail Temaki}
{Also pictured: My glass of shiraz and Phil's plum wine sake}

We spent more than we normally do, but that's because we got so much. The prices were pretty comparable to what we'd spend at our favorite restaurant, and the food was just as good. The best part? It's less than 3 miles from our house! 

Then we went to see The Incredible Burt Wonderstone! We really liked it and laughed a lot. It was a bit slow the first 10-15 minutes, but then it was great after. Besides, I love Alan Arkin and Steve Carell together :) {Like Get Smart from 2008}

We got home and Jillian had been a doll. The only downer of the night is our babysitter parked on the street and someone backed into her car without leaving information. She wasn't mad about it, but I still felt awful :(

Other than that, it was a successful date! Only 5 more to go ;)


  1. Way to go! We need to start making dates a priority again!

    1. Thanks! I worried I would miss Jillian the whole time, but it was much easier than I thought :)

  2. Yay! I am glad number 1 is done! I think you are really going to enjoy them once you get in the groove!

    1. I sure hope so! It was fun hanging out with just Phil for a few hours :)

  3. You look hot, lady!! So glad y'all got out for a date, you definitely enjoy them even more when they're so rare :)
