"Last Hurrah"

Friday night, I got home from work and crashed on the couch.  I flipped on the TV, Daniel got me some ice for my thumbs (I think I have tendinitis), and I just sat there.  It was so great... until the following comment came out of my mouth a little to late, "This could be our last weekend with just US! We should have gone out to dinner!"  Luckily, Daniel was much more calm and responded with, "We can go out tomorrow."

So we did...

Saturday, Feb 18, 2012 was a VERY good day.

We got the house ready for the baby. They call it... nesting.  I organized some things, got the "guest/nursery/study" room ready for my mom and sister's arrival, cleaned the bathroom, got the laundry done, etc.  Daniel did homework, cleaned the kitchen and dusted.  We also went to the fire department and got our car seat installed!  We are such responsible parents :-).

Around 3:45pm Daniel and I left for the movies.  It was the first (and probably last) movie that we have/will see in Chapel Hill.  Unfortunately, there wasn't really anything out that we were too excited to see, but we decided to see "This Means War" with Reese Witherspoon and we (I) actually really liked it.  I laughed a lot.  We also ordered popcorn and rootbeer--something we NEVER do.  We were being crazy I guess.  Naturally, Daniel and I were almost finished with it before the movie even started.  That just goes to show how excited we were! We were going out of control.  Luckily, I noticed the issue and calmly suggested to Daniel that we simmer down and space the goodness out a little bit.

After the movie we went to go out for dinner.  We really wanted to go to Maggiano's, but the wait was 2.5 hours long.  We settled for a piece of cheese cake from The Cheesecake Factory instead:  white chocolate, macadamia nut.  YUM. I'm not even going to record the calorie count.  However, as we were headed back to our car, we poked our heads into Maggiano's again and a very nice young lady offered us her table!  I guess she saw that I was very big and pregnant (and no doubt in need of some real food!)  It was wonderful. 

We ordered dinner off the specials menu: 2 salads, 2 pasta dishes, a dessert to share, AND two different pasta meals to take home all for $40.00.  It was awesome. 

I think I'm going to miss my alone time with Daniel haha.  We have so much fun with just the two of us.
