Date Night Idea: Couples Outing
It had been a while since my hubby and I had an opportunity to dine out. With all of our other commitments, I was so glad that we finally had an opportunity to have some time out together.
We successfully wrapped the launch party for Love.Work. Repeat., and decided to go dinner to celebrate after the event. We dined at Carrabba’s Italian Grill. This is one of my absolute favorite restaurants! The atmosphere includes dim lighting, dark wood throughout, and consistently delectable food. As always, I ordered the Chicken “Bryan Texas” with a side of sautéed spinach…I was in heaven!
This date night had a special twist because we shared it with other couples who had not had time out to themselves either! The theme of the night for one couple was that they had the “night off” from baby diaper duty. Although we love our children, there is something to be said for adult time and adult conversation!
We spent the latter half of our evening talking about all kinds of topics: kids, clutch city Rockets (how our hometown team used to be), hurricanes, and church. What truly made the night special is that we had not all been together in at least a year and it was so cool just relaxing and laughing!
What I thought would be a fun dinner out, was made even sweeter when my friends and family had the restaurant waiters sing happy birthday to me in Italian! It was truly the highlight of a fabulous night.
When we arrived home my husband and I talked about how we enjoyed our time at dinner, and how we MUST do more of it. There is nothing like good friends and a good time. I think it is important to not only spend quality time with your spouse, but also with other happy couples. It is almost a cathartic experience because some of the same things you may be dealing with in your household- there is another couple who understands what you are going through! I was so glad that I not only shared time with my husband, but with close friends and family.
For your next date night, make it a couples outing….you never know how much fun awaits!
