How was your weekend? The highlights for me included some epic kite flying at the park (sixty degrees in January?!) and a date night with Steve that ended with toilet paper shopping at Target. #sohot I had the absolute best meal of my entire life at Hawthorn Grill, a local chef-owned restaurant. If you’re ever in Dayton, Ohio, you must give their pan-seared walleye a try. It’s to die for.
Mine and Steve’s only resolution this year was to go on
more date nights. We’re actually following through with it! We found a great sitter (one of the many advantages of living in a college town) at the beginning of the year, and she’s watched the kids TWICE for us in the last month. The kids adore her. Last week when we told them she was coming Saturday evening they were all, “WHAT?! You guys just went on a date!” They aren’t used to seeing us do the date night thing more than a few times per year so twice in one month is pure craziness. But it’s awesome. Our motto for 2016 is date nights > divorce 😉 Seriously, they’re cheaper. Toilet paper included.
A few more awesome things…
*The leather teardrop earrings I wore for date night. They’re oversize but super lightweight!
*My favorite $5 carafe with cork stopper.
*I’m trying not to want this leather + kilim laptop bag but…
*Loving the lived-in vibe of this family home.
*A dreamy kitchen makeover featuring IKEA cabinets. (Bravo, Anna!)
*Triple bunk beds and some very honest words on parenting.
*I finished reading this magical book over the weekend and I think it deserves an entire blog post. To be continued…
Happy one month closer to spring!
