You know those Mondays that feel about two weeks long and leave you exhausted/frustrated/emotionally done at the end of the day? Yep, I had one of those this week so you can imagine my excitement when the fiance suggested we go out for dinner and a movie last night. I love a good weeknight date night because not only does it make you feel like it’s Friday (!!!) but it gives you a chance to break up the work week with some fun time.
We went for some Chinese – his favorite – and then to see the new Oprah movie – my choice, naturally. We laughed all through dinner and then got plenty of candy for the movie. We were both pleasantly surprised by how sweet the movie was – I highly recommend it! – and fear not, Oprah does not make a cameo. It was the perfect way to spend a Tuesday night and I woke up this morning feeling more relaxed and rejuvenated for the rest of my work week.
Ladies and gentleman, might I suggest an impromptu date on a school night? Ladies, throw on a little lip color and some fun shoes. Gentlemen, let her pick the movie and you might find yourself enjoying it, too! The most important thing is spending time with the one you love. Take your mind off all the other stuff you’ve both got going on and focus on each other. Chinese and chick flick optional.
