Date nights are pretty few and far between at the Newman house. Mostly because we’re parents of young kids and they really frown on you leaving young children unattended at home ;). So anytime an offer is made to watch our girls we take it. I think the rule on that one is unless the babysitter making the offer is an ax-murderer, you accept.
Thankfully we live in the same town as both sets of grandparents so finding a sitter usually isn’t too hard. Saturday night Grandma and Papa came over and we were free!!!
First date night stop was a local favorite. Hacketts Hot Wings. Hands down the best wings you would ever eat in your life. If you ever came to JoMo this would be one of the places I would bring you. Hot and Honey and Lemon Pepper. Oh my goodness, I could eat here everyday!
After Hacketts we finally made it over to Baskin Robins. Sure they opened like 5 months ago, but I told you that we don’t get out much. Since we were “stuffed” we just shared a scoop of Jamocha Almond Fudge that we scored for free with a birthday coupon they sent Russ.
Next up was a trip to Starbucks, because apparently all we do is eat and drink. This stop was another birthday freebie, YES! We always feel the pressure to make this freebie count. Let’s get the biggest cup of coffee and load it up with espresso shots because it’s free… and clearly we didn’t want to fall asleep for 48 hours.
Our last stop was a trip to Home Depot. I know, we’re lame. Russ needed a new grinder and I had plans of my own. Remember the home school room I have started talking about. I drew up a plan for a desk and I wanted to start picking things out..
We explored all kinds of options for the top and materials. We aren’t quite ready to begin the construction phase but I am getting excited just thinking about it.
A nigh away, the best wings ever, birthday freebies and scheming projects with my guy.
