Dinner & A Movie Date
I can’t tell you the last time Scott and I went on a dinner and a movie date. Probably months! With an itch to get out but still stay in our casual clothes, we figured a rainy Friday night was the perfect excuse to go.
We drove around for a while before deciding on trying a new (for us) Italian place called Pasquale’s.
The place has been around since 1954 and has some crazy history. I will for sure have to share some stories with you another time…
For now, I will share that I for sure took advantage of this date night and allowed myself to “let loose” a little on the dinner front. First came a Michigan Cherry Wine Sangria.
Then Scott and I split an Anitpasto Salad.
And then dove right into the main attraction, (what we have heard people rave about), their Deep Dish Pizza!
OH. MY. YUM.
I don’t know if it was amazing because it was deep dish (which I haven’t had in ages) or if it was because it was truly that delicious. Either way, I was a fan!
Just when I thought I couldn’t eat any more, the waitress asked if we wanted to see the dessert tray. Whenever we try a new Italian restaurant, Scott has to try their tiramisu and I may or may not have given him the look of death when he ordered one.
My “just one bite” turned into eating at least half of it, and I must admit that it was pretty darn tasty.
After dinner, we checked out some movie times and were excited to finally go see “We’re The Millers”. I didn’t know much about it going into it, but I knew it was supposed to be funny.
We were both laughing out loud within a few minutes time. The comedy was great and I loved it!!
Three cheers for a casual rainy Friday night!
Family Trail Run
A night of indulgence usual equals a long run the next morning, just to get things movin’ and get me back in the swing of a normal routine.
This morning we wanted to bring Roadie along, so we settled on a 4 mile loop that included our favorite neighborhood trail!
The idea for a trail run on a Saturday morning is quite popular amongst our neighbors. We crossed paths with several runners, walkers, and bike riders!
We made it home without any troubles and I was so proud of Roadie for keeping up the whole time. Four miles is a new Roadie distance record!
As soon as we got home, Scott gave him a bath to help cool him down and we made sure to give him a lot of love afterwards.
I just love when he’s so fresh and so clean, clean!
Well, I’m off to get ready to work a festival in downtown Royal Oak called Arts Beats and Eats. Can’t wait to see how it is and tell you all about it.
Hope you have a wonderful Labor Day Weekend!
