Date Night

We had "date night" tonight. Date night can mean anything from going to Baskin Robbins for ice-cream to going to dinner and a movie. It could be a drive down the Natchez Trace. We don't have a set thing we do.


Tonight was an impromptu thing. Steve knew I didn't feel like cooking (achoo! I am still down with a cold), so he asked me if I felt like going for a bite to eat at Mellow Mushroom, and to Borders, right beside it, and maybe pick up something to read. Hmmm...let me think about that (for half a second) "YES!"



Mellow Mushroom is a nice place. They do pizza, hoagies, etc. It's kind of a throwback to the 60's/70's theme as far as decorations go. We haven't been in forever (over a year, I think?), and if someone else is going to cook & clean, I'm all for that! We both ordered the Mushroom Club, which was divine. I don't do lettuce, tomato or sprouts, so they were kind and left those off my order. Their sweet tea is *really* good, too. The good chat over dinner was really nice. Somehow we got on the subject of flatbread. Do you know how much there really is to say about that? Apparently a lot, because we talked about it for a while. Yeah, we're that crazy.


Borders, Borders, Borders. Put me in a bookstore and I am in Heaven. I bought a copy of The Shack, by William P. Young. I've been hearing a lot about it lately (today, especially) and it just seemed to be the book for me. As always, I had to buy a bookmark, too. I chose a "Book Rug" design.








This Date Night was really good. My husband is dreamy for doing this for me. He's the man! He's also already sacked out. I think the combo of a busy day plus a full meal wore him out! Off to start the book....

We have a date night every Friday night and we were very close to you guys Friday night. We went to Logan's to eat :) I have to admit I love Mellow Mushroom! Sometimes a few of us will go there after work and talk for hours!

I also love Borders! I went there before we went on vacation to pick up another Sweet Potatoe Queen Book. I love Jill Conner Browne and wanted something fun to read while we were gone.

Glad you guys had a fun date :)
