Date Night!

Saturday night, Josh and I had an old-fashioned date.  He picked me up, opened doors, helped me with my coat.  It was a sweet change, although I'm not sure I could handle it all the time!

We went to Ertel's Winery in Batesville.  The place is gorgeous - here are some pictures from their website.

We had a nice little table for 2 right next to the windows.  Josh ordered us a bottle of their strawberry wine - yum!  I haven't had a wine from there yet that I don't love.  He ordered a shrimp dish, and I got the filet Mignon.  We shared a crab cake appetizer.   Everything was absolutely delicious, and presented so well that he kidded we should take pictures.  I almost pulled my camera out.... but didn't.

It was nice to be out just the two of us, and this was a change from what we normally do.  We ended the evening sipping a honey mead on my couch, watching "Supernatural" season 4.  We wouldn't want to get TOO fancy all at once :)

What's your favorite date night or special date night?

Yup... Oops again!

It's been about a month again.  Oops.  But really.... I've been in a funk lately, and I try to stay positive in what I post to the world.... so there wasn't a whole lot to say.

A couple of days of warmer temperatures, SUNSHINE... and it has helped tremendously.  I mean really, I think I was born to live somewhere warm and sunny, because it makes me feel so much happier!

It was a busy month - we've already held auditions for our spring musical, Catholic Schools Week is wrapping up, and the slopes have stayed open.  There's not been a lot of down time, and I have projects that NEED to get done!

In the interest of trying to be more positive, some things I'm thankful for.
  • Great friends, like Staci.  No matter how much I whine and complain, she helps me pick myself up off the floor and continue on with my day.
  • Seeing the outpouring of love for families who need it.  John and Mandy's baby came 7 weeks early and is going to need surgery - they are waiting to let her grow a bit first.  They are completely wrapped in love, and the pictures they share of little Kaylynn are incredible.  Heartbreaking, but so full of hope as well.  I am enjoying seeing the growth - it's amazing how much difference a week makes when you only weighed 3 lbs 2 oz at birth!
  • Josh.  Talk about someone who puts up with a lot - he is amazing.
Time to go to the gym - I've been doing good about going multiple times the days I don't have to work at the slopes.  This will make visit number 7, and I've still got tomorrow morning to go!
