Impromptu Date Night
I made some maple sriracha shrimp fried rice, grabbed 2 take out containers from the cabinet, slapped it in there, grabbed forks and napkins and put them in the Mr's insulated lunch box and told him to put on his clothes, we're going out for dinner. I didn't tell him where but halfway there, by my directions, he knew...the airport. When we were dating, we used to go watch the planes and smooch. There's something soothing about watching planes land and take off and wonder where they're going.
We didn't even get there and it was already worth it when we saw this herd o' deer.
We got to the top of the parking garage and again, before we ever parked the drive was worth it with this huge moon to greet us in lieu of the ill timed sunset we missed.
Sorry for the horrible car lighting for dinner but this is the maple sriracha shrimp over whole wheat Israeli cous cous. It was SOOO good and we had a great view of the city and the incoming planes while we listened to Hawaiian music like Leaving on a Jet Plane by Justin Young.
I snagged a really bad pic of a plane landing.
Then we went inside and perused the stores and the Mr played with toys. (Yes, I'm married to a 12 year old...aren't they all when it comes to pose-able objects?)
It was a wonderful, last minute way to turn around a poopy few days.
Do you do surprise dates? If so, where/what? If not, think one up and do it!
