we suspected it would be our last one before the baby came, and we wanted to make sure it was good. we tried to find a restaurant that we wouldn't ever take a baby to--which ruled out most chains. we learned that the hard way when we went to olive garden for our anniversary dinner in august and sat right next to a couple with a screaming baby the whole time. we could barely focus on our conversation.
so we decided to pay more for a quiet, fancy dinner. so worth it.
we found a place in idaho falls that had soft lighting, seated us next to a crackling fireplace, and we ended up having a whole room to ourselves. are you kidding me?! we were in heaven! i got salmon, david got steak, and we split a diet coke--my first in 9.5 months. yeah, i went crazy (cray-cray, if you will).
anyways, it was wonderful to unwind from the week, eat slowly, and enjoy conversation and one another's company. i know we'll still go on dates after little junior arrives, but i'm certain it won't be quite as carefree. i've been very nostalgic lately for the four years david and i have spent as a twosome and it just felt right to end it with an evening like that one.
oh, and just in case david started thinking i was too classy, i snuck our last roll into my purse to enjoy later on. i felt embarrassed asking for a doggy bag on a complimentary dinner roll, but it was so good, i couldn't leave it behind! yikes. he can't take me anywhere. ;)
