Date Night with My Best Friend

Usually dating ends when you get married, but not for me. My sweet husband always does his best to keep our dating life going even when life is crazy. I guess it helps that we have one night a week and every other weekend to keep it up!

Tonight was such a great night. I love that Cody and I can go out in a big group and have a blast as well as that we can go out just the two of us and enjoy it just the same or even more. We have so much fun together...we laugh, we smile, we let the cares of the world go just for a few hours, and we genuinely enjoy spending our time together. I told him the other day he is my lobster, to which he didn't know if that was a criticism or compliment. I told him that lobsters are one of the few animals that when they find a mate, they stay with that mate for life. Don't be alarmed people....I didn't find this fact from being interested in the mating of animals, but I learned this on an episode of 'Friends'. Anyways, we had a great night out together and I am ever thankful for such a wonderful husband.

First we stopped at the hospital to meet our new nephew. (See previous post).

Next we strolled the mall window shopping (well Cody did, I bought myself a new pair of cute boots!)

Then we decided to be adventurous and try the new Italian restaurant near University Mall call Terre Mia. Man was our taste buds in for a treat tonight! We seriously loved this place. We started with grilled breadsticks toasted with olive oil, oregano, and garlic. So yum! I chose a fresh Caprese sald which hit the spot very well and was absolutely divine. Cody chose a creamy mushroom sauce over penne with chicken. He thought it was almost as good as mine. ;) haha. No, he really loved it.

Then we cleansed our palates with their amazing display of gelato. I think we tried every flavor before we decided. What could end a meal and a great date better than a bowl full of gelato? So, all in all we absolutely loved Terre Mia and recommend it to anyone and it really has great prices as well. Not too bad for Orem!

P.S. I'm really not auditioning to be a food critic, I just was in the mood to blog and I thought the pictures were fun to look at!

P.S.S. Thanks to my sweet husband for making me feel so loved and adored after all these years. ;)

I wish Cody would take ME out to a fancy italian restaurant...

Yep--Cody is one great guy--his laugh can't be topped (nor his stories, which get better with the telling). You, too, Meridith, are terrific!
