One of the things I like to take advantage of when family visits is built in babysitting. Keith and my wedding anniversary is next week, and since I will be working he set up a surprise night out last night. It has been a long time since our last date, so I was pretty dang excited. He took me to Studio Movie Grill so we could kill two birds with one stone and have time for some finishing touches to our Christmas shopping.
We saw Twilight, and I have to say I really liked it. It was nice to go with someone who hasn't read the books because he was totally unbiased on the movie. Keith agreed with me that it was semi-cheesy, but he liked it. And I have to say that even after watching the movie, I am still not a fan of Edward, I am more of a Jacob girl! Even though he was only in the movie for a few minutes, I like him better! And we also got a kick out of all the crazy eyes people kept giving to each other. And MAN were Jacob's teeth white or what? And WOW Jessica was annoying!
After that we were going to walk around Arlington Highlands and window shop, but um...it was FREEZING! So we headed over to Target and we are now officially done with the Christmas shopping. How nice to have that finished!
I love date nights because after such a hectic and crazy 2 weeks it was so nice to have time to reconnect, even if we thought we were going to die driving home on the ice with all the inexperienced we-think-we-can-still-drive-fast drivers braving the icy roads!
