Friday Night Date Night – Updated!

Josh and I used to be really good about having our Friday night date nights, but we haven’t done it much lately.  We use to make it a point to try a new restaurant on Friday nights.  It was a great way to get out and to try new things. 

Life’s been so busy lately, and we realized that we need to slow down and take time to enjoy each other’s company.  SO… to get back into the swing of things we decided to have my iPhone help us out with deciding on a new restaurant.  I plugged in the location of where we wanted to eat, and let Urbanspoon do the rest!


We ended up having Spanish tapas at Cafe Ole.  We had a good time despite the food being a little overpriced (even though Urbanspoon had it listed as only two $$).  And after dinner, we went and played some pool. 

It was nice to get to spend some quality time with my hubby after the busy week we had!



I’m introducing my new rating system that I came up with for restaurants that I try out.  Out of a possible 5 full glasses, I give Cafe Ole a mere 1.5 glasses.   Next week, we’ll be trying a new restaurant for Valentine’s Day and I am really looking forward to it!  It’s gonna be a goodie!

  1. Love date nights, they are the absolute best! We try to do the same and also love experimenting with new eateries and different cuisine :) Tapas is so yummy! A little of this and a little of that...glad you had some quality time. We have to remember to treat ourselves don't we :)

    Hugs and hope that you all have a wonderful, relaxing weekend.


  2. awwww- very sweet!!! i am wanting an IPhone SO badly- and you're not helping! LOL!

  3. We used urbanspoon last night too. Ended up at Cool River Cafe. Don't let the cafe part fool you it was pricey and a very good mignon. We were celebrating!

  4. I'm glad you are trying to get back to normal. I think that is the hardest part. Enjoy each other as much as you can. You deserve it!

  5. what a neat app!! Date nights are so nice!!

  6. It's so nice you can connect with hubby with a simple thing like that :) Keep it up!! :) Hugs, Nan xo

  7. I LOVE LOVE LOVE date nights! We've found that using to buy cheap gift cert (and google to make them even cheaper) is a great way to try a new restaurant without the guilt of the money - I figure if we hate it, but only spent like $30- it was worth trying!

  8. Cute rating system! Can't wait to hear about the next date night!

  9. Awesome! I like your wine glasses. I want to steal it;) Keep us updated, we are always looking for a good date night place too!
