date night!

It's been a year now that I started leaving Eric to work a week out of town every month, but I still dread missing him.  I seriously have an unsettled feeling in my tummy a few days leading up to my time to go.  Haha how lame/cheesy right?  But it's so true!  And the day I get to come back home I have butterflies in my tummy :)  I guess that week apart is good for our marriage haha! 
To show how much he missed me, Eric had a fun date planned when I got home Saturday!  We drove up to SLC and indulged in my favorite... waffles and fritesOh YUMPlease ignore our sweaty red faces, it was freakin' hot that night!

Then we went to a baseball game!  Of course, the most exciting thing happened within the first two minutes of the game.  A player got thrown out of the game for throwing a tantrum and I thought the coach was going to punch the ump.. haha.  Gosh we look like we're both about to have a heat stroke
We had to have some ball park food....even though we'd just had dinner an hour before. :)  Our goal was to eat ourselves sick... didn't happen.  Hopefully we can find a county fair this weekend to and see what damage can be done ;)
 It was such a good night and I felt so giddy to be on a date with my man :)  Oh, I missed you guys almost as much as I missed Eric! ;)  I can't wait to get caught up on my blog stalking... you'll all be hearing from me soon :)

You guys are so cute. So, do you come down to St. George every month, then? Maybe I should get my hair done by you, in that case!

Cute! You two are adorable! I love the "eating ourselves sick"!

My Hubs and I shared a piece of cheesecake after dinner last night and I felt ill the rest of the night. It was dang good though!

Stephanie and Such said...

AHh I love that you still get butterflies :) That is the cutest thing ever.

And waffles and frites? Umm I need to try this place!!!

P! said...

I don't know HOW you do it, lady. Being apart from my hubby for even one night, only like twice a year is enough to drive me nuts! You're a strong lady. I'm glad you have such an awesome job that allows you to keep your fabulous clients though! Looks like you two had a lot of fun- I'm sure Eric loves that you're willing to do tomboyish stuff, like go to ball games and roller derbies!! Adorable pictures, as always... that food pic doesn't look too bad either. ;)

Love this photo of you too!! Your hair is so gorgeous. Must be hard having to leave you hubby but it is a very good sign that you miss him so much! I think the time apart is great as it keeps things fresh and make you time together so much more special.

Shalyn said...

I dare declare that just the statement of you wanting to eat yourselves sick makes us meant to be friends, ha! Copious amounts of food is a must for our date nights! Its italian for us tonight! Free bread!
