I'm really not high maintenance, despite what some people might say.

Last night, Beau and I had a date night. Girls come back today, so we had to get our last hoorah in. 


On our way home from work, I told Beau that I was perfectly content to order take-out and stay home. Beau is always adamantly opposed to not eating at a restaurant. I love eating at home. Go figure.

It's become all about comfort for me. (I know I'm showing my age.)

He says he doesn't like having to clean up the mess at home. Ummm ... wait ... who cleans up the mess? I'm fine with it.

He says he likes it when people serve him. Don't I know it.

We spent about 30 minutes trying to decide where we were going to go. I was not backing down from my no-Mexican stance (I had eaten chips & salsa for lunch).

Finally, we decided on The Bonefish Grill, a restaurant we had never been to.

Of course, I had to change my clothes and spend all kinds of effort trying to make myself look like a good date, when really I just wanted to put my pajamas on and eat Chinese out of one of those cute little boxes.

Well, let me just tell you, it was well worth the effort.

Everything from the salad to the dessert was delicious.

But, my favorite, the creme' brulee was divine.
After we ate this, Beau asked me if I wanted to order another one. I said no, but really wanted to. It's so hard being the disciplined one (cough).

The dessert in itself was well worth the dress, the heels, and the touched-up lipstick. (Oh, and the date too.)

We've got a Bonefish Grill here too and I've heard it's good -- but I've never been able to get past their sign -- a fish skeleton is definitely not the most appetizing logo a restaurant could have :) Maybe now we'll have to give it a try!

I LOVE Bonefish Grill, but we don't have one here (I even have a gift card I've been holding for 2 years!!) Lucky girl!

Bonefish is our official date night hangout! It doesn't get any better than that. Try the raspberry brownie for dessert next time, it's way worth all the calories!

Never been there but now I feel I could go and enjoy the experience. Good advertisement, they should give you a kick back. :-)

What makes me smile is I am so with you on the getting ready to go out thing...
But then sitting next to my Honey and having a yummy dessert is SO worth it. Glad the two of you had fun, good practise for when you hit NYC!!!!

I love to eat dinner in my jammies! You are NOT high maintenance. You simply know what you want. There is a difference, right?!

Wow you frequent restaurants that use real napkins? I need a babysitter so I can try this date thing! :-)

No Bonefish grills up here, but if I ever see one, you've made me want to go.

This is SO my hubby and me. He loves the whole going out experience. But it makes me deliriously happy to just order it to go, and then crash on my very comfy couch and eat yummy food prepared by someone other than me. Love it.

But usually, in the end, it IS nice to get out once in awhile. SO glad you had a fantastic date, and that dessert looks divine.
