A few weeks ago we were out with my mother-in-law and passed a restaurant that I like, but is a bit heavy on the budget. I jokingly told my hubby he could take me there for our upcoming anniversary. We all chuckled and went on with what we were doing.
Then, a week or so later, my hubby stopped by his moms’ for something, and she handed him a gift card for that place I mentioned hubby could take me for our anniversary!
What a sweet surprise.
Well, our anniversary came and went. We ended up somewhere else as we were celebrating with our girls in tow.
But today, my brother-in-law and his wife took our girls to the circus (my in-laws are pretty great!) and hubby and I had time just the two of us. And we weren’t too far from the restraunt…we grabbed our chance. It was an Italian place, so I had been careful with my diet in case there was no way to avoid some of my food issues. I told hubby I had done that. He said, “I don’t think that’s how that works.” And he was right, it’s not and I wasn’t able to avoid all of the food irritants, so I am paying for it a bit tonight, but I have to tell you it was ALLLLLL worth it!
I had tilapia, hubby shared his steak, we even had dessert. I had a safer-ish dessert of cheesecake. We talked about the book I just finished reading, we talked about politics (of course), and (again, of course, talked about the girls. It was fantastic. And then, because of the adventurous couple we are, we hit the grocery store. Yup, living it up.
We laughed, we joked, we ate. Several hours later I stand here at the computer with my stomach getting more and more upset…and it was still worth every bite, every moment.Survive til you Thrive!
