date night


Daddyman and I had a DATE last night. Not an easy thing to do why you both work a variety of random jobs and have 3 little girls at home. We have a great babysitter (former teacher) who the girls love. She can get them all in the bathtub, wash hair, read books and lights out in 45 minutes. I am starting to believe in Mary Poppins. Then at the end of the night, she didn't want us to pay her. (We did. We want her to come back again and again.)
We had a great time!
That's not what this blog is about.
We went to the most wonderful restaurant. We feel like we've discovered a new country. Of course, the place was packed, so we didn't actually discover it... but we both have great imaginations so we can pretend we did.
Last night while searching for a place to eat we decided that we both wanted the same thing: To go someplace wonderful that everyone goes to, just not when they're all there.
So, here's where we went. YUMMY! Grown-up food. Great wine. Good prices. Locally grown/produced. Menu changes daily. (I tried to link it, but I couldn't do it... weird.)

OhMiGosh, Ahna!
This is fabulous!
I have just spent somewhere in the neighborhood of four hours enjoying your blog and those of Galadriel, Johanna, SewSucculent, and pretty much anyone else who commented...Why, oh, why have I previously ignored this bevvy of beautifulness!

Just this morning I found myself complaining to Nathan about my inability (or laziness?) to make time for the blossuming of friendships and my insane desire to get make to my creative hippy roots...and here you are...just waiting for me to join in. Ahhhhh. I feel better already.

Tomorrow morning I promise to wake up early, before Gillian and Nathan, and spend another four hours figuring out this whole blogging thing. A thousand thanks for helping to slap my boring self back into its semi-un-boring self.

P.S. Yes, I'll make up my own words if I want to..Nyah!
