Date weekend

The last couple days have been date days. I had a work meeting a couple hours before class on Friday, so we had some free time after that before classes. We went to the campus Art museum and saw a few really cool exhibits there. After classes, before a group presentation meeting of mine, we had 2 hours to kill, so we went bowling. David is cute. I won.

Neither of us did terribly well (as you can see) but we had a lot of fun.
Today, I took the night off work, so we could have a fun evening without worrying about me being tired and getting back on time. We went to Olive Garden for dinner, which was excellent. Our server was really funny and the food was good, even though there was a 45 minute wait. After dinner, we got a movie from Redbox to watch later.
We went to this great place that I got a gift card to (thanks Cami!) for dessert. It is called The Chocolate and it is in an old house. They are a dessert cafe. The house was an awesome design for the business. There were lots of little tables and couches tucked all over both floors. We ended up in a back corner by a window, halfway hidden from everyone else. Their prices are reasonable; excellent if compared to typical restaurant pricing. They have cakes, cookies, cupcakes, mini cupcakes, and this glorious thing called a Cazookie. You pick 2 kinds of cookie dough off a list, and they put each in half a (best guess) 6" pan and bake it until the edges are getting crispy, but the middle is gooey and warm. Then they put a giant scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. So. Good. Hot cookie, melty ice cream, basically awesome. We got peanut butter and chocolate chip, both of which were excellent.

The Carnage
We also got a cupcake each, and we are excited to try them. We highly recommend The Chocolate for a fun place for some really good dessert.
Overall, it has been a great couple of days and I am VERY excited to not be at work right now.


  1. You two are just so darn cute together! Miss you and love you both!!!! So happy you find such joy in just being together. Love through time and all eternity doesn't just happen. It takes work, but you are setting up good habits for eternity!
