A few weeks ago, I stumbled upon this post over at Wifesionals. It's a post introducing a new series & link up called Alphabet Dating. Now, Mr. B & I don't get to go out too often, but I was immediately excited to participate! Why was I so excited? Well, if you have read my most recent post you will see that our four year anniversary was this past weekend. :)
So, I thought it would be an awesome idea for our anniversary to be brought to you by, the letter "M" & the number "4". :) So, what to do for date night revolving around the letter "M"...
We decided on...
A Movie, Mexican Food, & Margaritas.
First up, the movie. Mr. B & I decided that we would go out, for the first time, to a movie on opening weekend. This is a huge deal for us, as we are not huge fans of crowds of people! But we took the risk & went out to the earliest showing of Evil Dead.
Sorry no pictures. I mean, really, how can you actually get photos of a movie nowadays without being deemed as some terrorist. lol. The movie was good. It is way different than the first. It starts off more serious but gets back to it's B-movie roots towards the end. Gotta love Bruce Campbell! The movie made it even more apparent that Mr. B & I are soulmates as we seemed to be the only ones laughing at some of the goriest parts. We shared a bucket of popcorn, a soda, & a box of Milk Duds & were shocked that it costs us $19. It really is getting crazy expensive & nearly impossible to go out to the movies in today's economy.
After the movie we were off to the next two M's on our list. Margarita's & Mexican food.
We live in Pennsylvania so there are not too many Mexican food places to choose from. Nothing compared to what I am used to in Southern California. It is very easy to find good Mexican food in Cali, here... it's taking a shot in the dark. We decided to try On The Border, which yes, is a chain. Restaurant chains get a really bad rap sometimes. Honestly, On The Border was pretty amazing. If you like spicy food, I really really recommend their jalapeno poppers. To-Die-For. Mr. B had their brisket tacos & I had a combo. The best thing on the combo, was their chicken taco. Again, to-die-for. Mr. B & I both ordered their Strawberry Swirl Margaritas, which were probably the best margaritas I have ever hard. Though, a bit on the pricey side.
After dinner, we took a walk in the park near our house. We walked hand & hand & eventually stopped on a little bridge, where Mr. B decided he would be romantic. He professed his love for me & asked me to marry him, again. Of course, I said yes, again. I can't wait until October 1st, 2014. The day I can say "I Do" & continue to spend our lives together.
I brought my tripod along so that I could get a few shots of us. Little did I know I would end up taking the best picture of us, of all the time we have been together. I guess, when you feel that much love, it radiates through the world.
So that was our anniversary date, brought to you by the letter "M" & of course the number "4", :)
What is your favorite date night choice?
