So, when my mom was in town the other week, I went on a date with my husband. (And no, we didn't go eat that 14 pound pizza from Beau Jo's. That was a crazy idea.)
Instead, we did the best thing ever... we went to dinner AND a movie. We haven't done that in more than seven years. I mean, sure, we would go on dates... maybe to a movie. Maybe to the mirror maze at the Mall of America. Maybe out to eat. Maybe that-event-that-I-shall-never-speak-of. But it's been a loooong time since we went to both dinner AND a movie together. On. The. Same. Night.
It felt like we were back in high school.
Before we left, I had my mom take our picture. I told her, "Squat down and take a picture of us in front of our door. We're going to try to look cool."
Then, to Vernon, I said, "Sit down next to me and try to look cool."
This is what we came out with:
We saw The Social Network and ate at BJ's Brewery.
(This was fun. Let's do stuff like this more often.)
