Surprise Date Night
I love date nights, but sadly, they don’t happen very often. Jesse and I tend to be homebodies on the weekends since the weekdays are so busy. I feel lucky though, because I got to have two date night weekends in a row! Last Saturday, we went out for my birthday and this past Saturday we went out for dinner and a dance performance. I almost felt like it was my birthday all over again! Jesse surprised me at the last minute with tickets to see BodyVox-2 at BodyVox, and a couple hours beforehand, asked me if I wanted to eat at Dick’s Kitchen prior to the show. Um, yes…I love the naked grass-fed burgers at Dick’s Kitchen. They do it right!
Anyway, it was really sweet of Jesse to set up this date night for us, and we both had a great time. Granted, we had to eat quickly without much time for conversation once our food came…the detriments of leaving the house a tad too late and the lack of parking spaces in NW Portland. I didn’t even get to finish my wine and as you may know, having wine is a special occasion for me, so I was bummed I didn’t get to finish it. I mean, okay, I could’ve chugged it, but I just don’t like doing that. I want to enjoy it and sip it, and have conversations over it.
After dinner, we whipped over to the theater and found our seats, which were front row! Jesse sure picked us some good ones. It also helps that he gets a discount on tickets since he’s a current student at BodyVox. He takes weekly ballet classes there, and I love that he does this. It was weird being right in the front row because the stage isn’t raised, so you’re at the same level as the dancers. You can see the sweat pouring off of them, hear their breathing and clearly witness their expressions. It made it that much more real. We’ve seen other performances here before, but have never sat in the front row, so it was a new experience.
Also, I couldn’t resist taking the picture below of the man sitting next to me. Talk about keeping things classy! Not only that, but he had God-awful breath. We never had a conversation or anything, but I could smell it just sitting next to him. Breath shouldn’t smell like his did and shouldn’t really smell at all, unless you just ate garlic or onion or something. Anyway, enough about that.
Did you have a nice weekend? What did you do?
