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!

Date night is the best! And, it sure looks like you had some delicious food, especially the pizza! We rarely get dessert after we eat out because we’re always so full, but when we do, Tiramisu is my dessert of choice!
A family trail run sounds great! I injured my foot and am waiting for it to heal, and I can’t wait to get back into running and doing Zumba again! Happy Saturday!
Oh the pizza was fantastic! And I’m always a fan of tiramisu. Can hardly ever say no 😉 Hope you heal quickly! Have a great weekend!
