Since school starts on Monday... yes, August 6th... I know... it's craziness (school never used to start back until after Labor Day) , Sam wanted to spend the night with Nana and Papa one night this weekend. Husband and I took the opportunity to have a real date night last night. You know... to contemplate going someplace to eat that does not have onion rings and french fries?
We had a lovely late lunch at one of our favorite places that recently was purchased by members of a family who have another successful restaurant. They redecorated for a cleaner, more open feel and redesigned the menu to include some wonderful choices. Husband had the shrimp and grits and I had the pork loin with onion/fig compote. The crab cake appetizer was heavenly as was the baby greens salad. Big YUM! After we ate, we went by Starbucks to get a coffee (Frappuccino for husband) and then we contemplated what we wanted to do next. What a luxury!
We called to see what time the new Matt Damon movie, the Bourne Ultimatum, was showing at our neighborhood theater, and had just enough time to make it to the 4:10PM show. It was wonderful! I just love Matt Damon and had seen the other Bourne movies, and so knew I'd probably enjoy this one as well. It was action packed, and so very suspenseful! We left smiling, enjoying our first movie together in probably a year.
We headed home and enjoyed several games of pool with some nice pinot noir and we laughed and laughed. Thus ends the part of the date I can blog about...tee hee hee. Thanks Nana and Papa. It was a wonderful date night. I'm off back to the hospital this morning... yawn...
