Date night doesn't happen very often for Mike and I. We always talk about what we'd like to do, but rarely does it ever take place. We are aware that it should, but it just doesn't. This weekend, we were finally able to take some time as a couple and reconnect with each other. The kids stayed with the grandparents that popped in for a visit while we drove downtown for a while.
We've been talking about this little dive downtown Charleston called Fuel. We saw it on the show, Diners Drive-Ins and Dives, and ever since then have been trying to figure a way to go there. Funny thing is, it sits directly across the street from Hominy Grill which happens to be another place I'm wanting to try. (you can see it in the background) If you ever go there, try the black bean burger...YUM!!!!
It was so nice to sit and catch up on all the things that have been going on in our lives. We never sit and talk in detail about what's on our hearts because well, we have three littles running all over demanding our every ounce of attention. I think after this date though, we'll be making more of an effort. Especially before his approaching deployment.
I even attempted to snazz up my outfit for our date, which doesn't happen often either. It was so fun because this is pretty much a Wal*Mart and Target outfit. Fashion on a budget, that's how I do it.
top // Wal*Mart
jeans // Wal*Mart
belt // Target
boots // Targer
necklace // HOPE Homemade
earrnigs // Happy Days
We owe a big thanks to the grands for being so grand and keeping the littles. It was needed and we are so very grateful.
