Super Fun Date Night

Taylor and I went out last night on one of the best date nights we have ever done. Have you ever been out to dinner with friends and you feel like you are being rushed out of your table? You'd love to stay and talk but the server keeps coming back or the restaurant even starts turning the lights off on you? This seems to be the case every time we go out with our friends Brandon and Kendra so Taylor had a great idea. Why not do a progressive dinner? I'm sure you have all heard of these. You go to someone's house for an appetizer, the next person's house for dinner and so on. My family always does a progressive dinner at Christmas time so that we get to see everyones decorations. Well last night we decided to do a progressive dinner at downtown restaurants and it was a blast. We started out having an appetizer at Squatters, moved on to dinner at P.F. Changs and ended up with a dessert at The Melting Pot. It was so fun to go from place to place. We never felt like we were getting booted out because we knew we had to get to the next place anyway. It was a little pricey last night but you could definitely go more reasonable by going to some less expensive places. There are so many different restaurants that the possibilities with this are endless. Plus it gives you the opportunity to try new places or places that are maybe a little expensive. For example, Taylor and I have wanted to try the Melting Pot but didn't know if it would be worth the money. By just getting dessert there last night we were able to try it but not have to drop a full bill going there. I would seriously recommend trying this date night out with friends. It was a ton of fun!

This House....

...will be ours on March 10th!! Taylor and I were able to find this adorable house in Murray, in the same neighborhood that we already live in, and we instantly fell in love. We put an offer in this weekend and it was accepted last night! We will be closing on March 10th and we couldn't be more excited! We will finally have a free standing house with a yard for our little Moxley and the best part is we won't be leaving the neighborhood that we have fallen in love with. We will still be within walking distance from Aunt Michelle and our good friends Sherie and Todd. Its gigantic at just under 1200 sq ft but is perfect for our needs. 3 bedrooms, 1 bath, cozy and cute. Just what we needed to get us through the next few years.
