I went on a date...


...with Hubs.
Can I tell you how nice it is to just go out for dinner....ALONE?!

We try and do this once a month but it doesn't happen.  With Hubs' work schedule, we pretty much only get to plan something at the last minute.  Planning in advance is a thing of the past for us.

Hubs worked 6 straight night shifts this week and had Saturday night off so he said "let's go for tea".  We had heard about a nice place and tried to book in but they were full.  So I googled (like I do for everything" and found a list of restaurants and just picked one off the list and that's where we went.

It was called Match Bar & Grill

You know how when you walk in somewhere you get a pretty good feel for what the experience is going to be like?.  Well, the second we walked in, we were greeted by the owner, who asked us what drink we were having on them!.  We were seated at a very nice table and given the drinks list.

This was the backdrop to our table:


















Once we received our drinks, we ordered an appetizer and it was delicious.

Of course I had to snap a few shots of us before the food came


























Once the food came the camera suddenly got forgotten about.  The food was so good, we were too busy stuffing our faces to even think about taking a picture of the food.

Over all, the restaurant was impeccable, the food was delicious, the service was amazing and we rated it a definite A++++.  We will definitely head back there in future.  I was crossing my fingers all night that it would be good because if it wasn't Hubs would never let me hear the end of it for choosing a place to eat!

Of course I couldn't let the evening go by without doing a few outfit shots:


























I know you guys have seen this cardigan before - sorry.  I don't have a huge wardrobe selection and felt really comfortable in this.

Cardi, Belt & Necklace: Dotti
White shirt: Temt
Skinny Jeans: Cotton ON
Wedges: Big W
Bag: Coach

Yay for dates with Hubs! I know how wonderful those are and how few and far between they can be. My husband and I just appreciate a few hours of quiet sometimes that's all we can get because we don't sleep much. Get them when you can Nicole, I don't know what's happened but since the kids are older I have even less time than when they were little!
