After carefully planning out our first official FNDN, my plans were quickly tossed out the window when my husband called from down town. He had gone to pick up a quick bite for dinner only to find that right next to our favorite sidewalk bistro a car show was being held. There was also karaoke and people line dancing in the street. Who can turn down dancing and classic cars? He came home to get me while I frantically tried to find a babysitter. After spending way too much time on that, we finally decided to take our little one with us. Bed time can be postponed every once in awhile right?
We spent so long looking for sitters and debating on whether or not to take our little girl with us, that by the time we got there most of the cars were gone and the dancing had subsided.
Not all was lost. There were a few cars left and the karaoke was just getting started.
Hubby hopped in line to grab some dinner while Sweet B and I waited a safe distance from the speakers.
(You will have to excuse the terrible quality of the pictures. Neither of us are very handy with a camera.)
Sweet B listened and clapped along to the….music.
We got our dinner and decided to head home. While karaoke can be fun, it’s not always beautiful. Who knew "I'm a Survivor" only has a chorus with no verses? Plus the little one was sleepy and some people trying to sing were getting a bit too tipsy. Definitely time to go.
After Sweet B was down in bed, Hubby and I sat out on our deck to eat dinner. It was the perfect temperature too. We sat and ate while looking out across the beautiful Virginia sky watching the sun go to bed.
To end the evening, we decided to watch Road to Bali. It doesn’t get much better than Bob Hope and Bing Crosby! While it was good, it wasn’t the best "Road" movie I’ve seen. It was clean and funny though so it was worth it.
A Friday gone, but a memory gained. Date night isn’t about spending money, it’s about spending quality time with your spouse. We had our little one with us and that made it even more fun! Things didn’t go exactly as planned, but that made it exciting! Go out and see what you can find in your community. Like us, you may be pleasantly surprised!
