I've posted on it multiple times, but I love date night! It can come in all shapes and sizes depending on your life stage, but no matter what it looks like it's a special time to celebrate with your love. What's better than that??
We knew we needed to mix it up this week after being trapped inside thanks to Snowmageddon 2014. We were both pretty antsy and in need of an adventure out and about. David suggested we head over to an upscale outdoor mall to wander around before heading to supper. I'm always game for a little shopping and wandering around, so to Birkdale we went! We mostly windowed shopped, but we each picked up a little something at Barnes & Noble-Crash the Chatterbox by Steven Furtick for him and a clearance pregnancy journal for me. Score!
After some meandering we decided it was time for supper. David suggested we hit up one of my local favorites, 131 Main. I was thrilled! To anyone ever in the Lake Norman/Charlotte area, make time to hit up one of their locations. We've only been a few times since they are on the nicer/pricier side of things, but we've never been disappointed. Ever.
We kicked it off with the "Double Dip", a tower of half homemade pimento cheese and half homemade guacamole with chunks of avocado. Nom. Then, we moved onto a wedge salad with their own dressing. Double nom. And, as if things couldn't get any better, our meals arrived. Ribeye with loaded smashed red potatoes for him and the Danish Baby Back Ribs with their homemade french fries and cole slaw. Needless to say we needed to roll out of there.
We were home early enough to put on our cozy clothes and catch the heartbreaking NC State vs. Syracuse game. A perfect date night in my book!
