What’s in Our Picnic Basket #LoveandMarriage

My husband and I had it all planned out. Drop the kids off at Vacation Bible School and head over to the park for a little quality time together for a picnic. As soon as we dropped the kids off it began to pour down raining. This  lead us to putting our creative skills to work.   Head home and enjoy our picnic on the Living Room floor.

Marriage & The Family: Date Night at the iPic Theaters to see Sparkle

image

Last night Hubby and I had a chance to escape and enjoy some quality time together. We went to check out the movie Sparkle at the iPic Theaters in Bolingbrook Illinois. Hubby registered online before we went and you can also purchase your tickets online too. He purchased the premium tickets so we could enjoy the full experience of the show. Premium tickets came with a blanket, pillow, a server, popcorn at your seat and selected seating area of your choice.

It was a wonderful atmosphere and I was so surprised that very few people were there. My only negative comment would be that it was colder than winter in Chicago inside the theater. My husband gave me his blanket, his socks and his jacket. Instead of ordering another cold drink, I ordered coffee. It was that cold. The next time we go I will definitely be prepared.

The recliner seats in the theater were extremely comfortable! If it wasn’t for the coffee and the fact I did want to see the movie, I would have been like the man sitting near us snoring.

Lounge area. Sorry, my camera sucks when lighting is low. Hubby and I ordered some buffalo spring rolls and sat in the lounge area and ate before the movie started.

Pool area for pool players. I have no clue! So, you won’t see me in that section and I’m surprised my husband didn’t beg to teach me to play.

If you sat at the bars in the center of the room you wouldn’t have missed a thing on tv because there were TVs inside of them.

Buffalo spring rolls!!!!!Delish!!!!!

I ordered the usual before the movie…a Strawberry Daiquiri (virgin) and hubby tried a Majito. Since we don’t drink he didn’t like the Majito and I wasn’t fond of it either. I’ll stick to my cold, slushy girly drinks.

We had a wonderful time and this is where we’ll be going for now on when we go on a movie date. You better believe I’m going to be dressed for the frigid cold the next time we go.

Have you ever been to a theater that you thought was unique or worth the visit?

Date night at our favorite restaurant

We were so privileged to get rid….oops I mean have the kids spend the weekend with grandma, my oldest was in Tennessee at a tournament and we were home alone! WooHo!

So, hub & I went to our favorite restaurant Friday night.  It’s called Hamadas, a Japanese restaurant were they cook the food in front of you while you sit at a table with seven strangers.

My husband thinks I don’t eat all my food so I can bring my doggie bag home to my puppies.  Actually I do.Even though they weren’t home, I saved my leftovers for them and they didn’t come home until Saturday night.  You would have thought they sniffed it out.  The first thing my son says at 10pm at night, “I’m hungry what’s to eat.”

Do you love bringing home leftovers? If not for the kids, but so you can have something to eat later or the next day?

Ps I know this pic is irrelevant, but I’m loving the pics on my phone & the pics it takes.  😉
